    Review & Outlook: Negative $4,019 - WSJ.com

    Combine this with say the price of gas approaching 4$ a gal. Compared to $1.80 when he started.

    Yes. That's right.
    Obama is the cause of the recession that was almost another depression. Keep telling yourself that.

    Oh, and the POTUS controls the global market of petroleum.

    And 13...what's there to "like" about this?

    Oh OK I guess I had it all wrong I didn't know that, because if you told me that then I would have know Obama was lying four years ago when he said that HIS plan would keep unemployment under 6% and he would end the recession.
    So was he a liar then or now?

    Were you guys lying to me when you said it was Bushes fault for the price of gas in 05 and 06?

    Wasn't it Obama calling it the recovery summer the last three years?Why would he take credit for something you say he has no control over?

    By the was it more like a wreckovery summer.

    Obama also started the refinery fire in California, the pipeline problems in the midwest and California, and the drought.. remember how much water you need to frack..

    Superhuman effort on his part..

    I'm better off. Sorry that you are not.

    Does that mean I have to vote for Obama? Is that how this works?

    Same here. I'm a lot better off than I was in January 2009. Then again, I worked pretty hard to get to this point. Isn't that what America is all about?

    I wish that was the way it worked because if it was, we'd see Romney in a landslide.

    Looks like Bush would have been out after 4, too. I guess that isn't how it works... :)

    I'm not so sure I agree with that. The economy was very strong when Bush went for reelection and people were doing very well.

    Irony.... If you could show how it's wrong, you would have by now. The only delusional side of the argument is yours.

    No one with the loosest understanding of how oil is priced could blame any president for the price of oil. There was a lot of crap going on TV about that, but none of it really mattered in the real world. I routinely would cringe when that subject was brought up anywhere because I knew how easy it is to sway the opinion of an ignorant public.

    It has been done multiple times. You don't want to acknowledge anything but Saudi sweet crude, your problem.

    BTW T Boone Pickens says Romney's energy independence plan is the first such plan in 40 years, and that it will work.

    Pickens acknowledged that the Oil reserves in the US will provide us a parth to being self sufficient.
