    So what you are saying is that it's OK to blame Obummer, but it wasn't OK to blame Bush?

    It's more like, Bush's opponents blamed him whenever something went wrong, so, to get back, we have to blame Obama.

    It's kind of silly, but that's how politics are.

    No, I am saying that we all saw the very same people in here right now who ran around during Bush's term when prices were high blaming him on that, now trying to say that because Obama is in all of the sudden the President can't control oil prices....You have the jist, just that you have it backwards.

    Well, why should there be different standards?

    What "instantly"?

    This is why your posts are the most annoying.

    NO ONE criticized your little mouse monkey for there being no "instant" recovery....but NO recovery for the price of SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS the first time has been an issue. Let's compare Obama's seven years of recovery to say, Canada's. How about France...India, now there's a real good one.....

    FFS, NOW the US is starting to become stable, some people have started to regain part of their life savings, some may one day even have homes again, but the lying bunch of turds in the White House and the gerbils who regurgitate their droppings only look at job figures, which are as tortured as the lie that is Obamacare.

    The fact is the US has been in the dumpster digging for food for seven ****ing years under Obama's presidency, while he worsened things by ramming through the worst health care plan in the known universe.

    You want to compare Reagan to this flea? Show me how Americans were still worse off after three years of HIS presidency. Show me where Libyans could kill Americans and get away with it...show me where under Reagan millions lost their homes while he spent Christmas in Hawaii.

    Yeah, let's have a whole show of comparisons...then we can compare this lying asshole coward to Carter, Ford, and Clinton...and see just who the **** actually gets anything done.

    I've seen many a political hack blaming Obama for high gas prices, at least up until about six months ago.

    It works ALL ways. There are political hacks on every side.

    So where were you before? You don't get to just show up when Obama is getting his due on this front and all of the sudden say 'wait, wait....it isn't his fault'...It doesn't work that way.

    Outstanding but it was 7 TRILLION Dollars not billions but the rest of your post is right on. Amazing how poorly informed the Obama base is and even though Imagep says he didn't vote for Obama Imagep sure spends most of time defending the indefensible by basically ignore the actual results and posting meaningless information and posts that never address the actual issue.

    I can say whatever I want, with no constraints.
