Obama is going to get the money he was denied one way or another. If he can't get via an authorized budget, he doesn't mind raising taxes on everbody else. The government is responsible for the rising price of gas not the oil companies...granted they usually aren't the most altruistic entities either. We have no shortage of oil or refineries so there is absolutely no reason things should be this way. Can't wait til Obumma get shown the door in 2012.

Do not forget, this is an election year and there is a war that needs to be started. That chucklehead will end up buying that house again for another four years.:(

Obama made so many promises that he couldnt make good on. I think hes done some good things while in office but he got left a ton of debt from the Bush Admistration. I would like to see R. Paul become President because I like a lot of his ideas although I know he has no chance of becoming President. Obama has a golden tongue and he promises the world if he gets re-elected. I think Obama would be better off taking up a singing career. LOL...

Obama is a teleprompter reading puppet just like any of the others. The demand for gasoline has been down this year, so the prices aren't a supply/demand problem. What happens according to Lou Dobbs(grain of salt applied), is that when a surplus is occuring the big petro companies are then exporting the surplus to make big bucks. This allowed of course by the lobbyists in Washington who have their own drivers. So our gas prices would be WAY lower if this surplus is kept in house.

Oh and btw, Ron Paul is the only candidate. I seen him on Fox news and Hannity mentioned something about Iran. Paul then said what makes sense; if U.S. continues these conflicts, Who is gonna pay for them? GO PAUL!

I wonder why when gas prices go up , everyone wants to blame the president. Unless he owns all the oil companies, I don't think he's the one that sets the prices. If you don't like Obama then tough chit. He will beat any of those douches the republicans got easily.

He has accrued 6.7 Trillion dollars of debt. That is more than all his predicessors combined. He was placed in power by Soros to tank our nation.

Obamma took 3 years to spend more than 8 years of the bush administration. Obamma critiqued bush about spending and obamma is set to destroy the economy. He is setting his foundation to make himself lots of money. He is a piece of crap blames republicans but did accomplish anything and the democrats had the white house, senate, and congress.

Well, one reason Obama is being blamed for the high spending is because it took that to fight the war that BUSH started and funding all the companies that CHENNEY owned that supplied the war. So, don't put it all on Obama.... BUSH started this crap and it all goes downhill !!!!!!
So sure thing folks, put another BUSH in office and see what we get !!!!!!!!!

He could have avoided all that debt by avoiding pointless bailouts/handouts and pay offs. He should have ended operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and never started additional operations of his own. He has had 4 years to make things even remotely better, but has done the direct opposite. Don't blame the previous administration for the debt either...blame the democrates who had majority control of Congress who were spending then like they are now with more porkbarrel garbage.

only fools argue politics! u think having a choice of two people in the world to vote for president is really a choice? your vote means nothing and not a one of them care if you live or die. and regardless of who gets prez, you will still blame your troubles on him. has there ever been a prez that left office to where everyone agreed he was good?

obama walked into an elevator falling left him by Bush. Bush started the big borrow spending chasing bin ladin as an excuse to avenge and correct his dad losing reelection because because he did'nt get rid of sadam in the first gulf war.(imagine we have been in 4 now, iraq, afganistan, iraq, afganistan!!) No wonder we are broke.

I think gbush will go down as one of the worst presidents and I think obama's inability to see the countries real problems much less do anything about them and in fact just make them worse by piling on more regulation and more government will make him the second worse in modern history.

look at the candidates we have...Ron Paul has the willingness to make the hard choices to start turning us around. There really is not another choice. He's not rich so he's not chasing a money agenda and he is not buried with rich friends chasing theirs. The big money which helped get us in this mess has not given him money so they don't own him and I don't think he can be bought. He's too old to care about accumulating wealth and can live happily on president retirement. He sees the real problems and many of the real solutions. He is willing to lead based upon what is good for the country rather than what is good for special interest.

Think about it.... All of you people who voted for change with obama. It is a good idea. This country has to have change. He did not change anything he just made it worse. The republicans have morphed from conservatives into stuff the pockets of the rich. The dems buy power by passing out crumbs to the masses keeping them in government poverty while the elites stuff their pockets with bog money. The major parties have been taken over by rich special interests. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. The senate has not passed a budget in 6 years. The house just keeps on spending money and fighting. Give us term limits and

Go PAUL!
