    Okay, I see you're just going to double down on your pride and not admit you and Obama and the rest were wrong. No one ever claimed oil drilling alone made all the difference, but I'll bet it made most of the diff. Believe what you want, but you are wrong.

    Kobie, as important as demand is supply in determining cost. Why are you being circuitous?

    Obama said we can't-and yet we have. Was he wrong?

    He doesn't want to admit that a supposed constitutional scholar doesn't know jack**** about oil.

    Kobie, I noticed you are still refusing to answer my question. Why can't you admit Obama and the democrat party (including its leftists) were wrong on this?

    Obsessed? You feel the national debt isn't a concern? Do you even know how many trillions of dollars BHO has managed to rack up in six years?
    No, I don't think you do.
    Yes, I do believe you Obama haters are obsessed.

    Now I was wrong? When did I offer my opinion on oil drilling?

    I don't think you have the slightest clue how gas prices work.

    That is apparently the case. He's repeatedly ducked my questions. I think the left is backed into a corner on this issue in general, as well as Obama.

    Try not to believe everything you think.
