Now we are part of another war in Libya and libs are not complaining but they complained about Bush. Do we need 4 more years of this crap?? Only people with suicidal thoughts or crazy would say yes.

    you want miracles? do you believe in prayer? got a GOP candidate who can communicate with God? Bush says God told him to go to Iraq. Busy is crazy stupid, no doubt about it. And you expect one man to undo in one term what Bush took 2 terms to accomplish?
    BTW, where is Bush? Doesn't he have anything to say about this mess?

    I don't want miracles. I want a competent president and I don't care if he is Rep. or Dem. I want somebody with experience and not a community organizer that doesn't know crap about economy and wants to expand government to the point that we can't even take a crap without the government's permission.

    You said Obama could do nothing about pricing? Sure he could, he could do many things at the federal level that would ease this pain he is intentionally inflicting on the poor, and working middle class of this country. Suspending the federal tax on Gas is but one.

    Now.

    1) Now isn't whats important. If Americans continue to be short sighted nothing will be fixed in any of our impending crisis.
    2) He is moving to exploit oil reserves, he just wants current leases to be used before new ones are issued. I don't recall the exact number, but its some were around 20% of oil leases aren't being tapped by those who hold the lease rights.'

    Drilling is not a long term solution to the entire problem of energy demands.

    Ignore globally warming for now, because it doesn't matter in this debate. China, India, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and ex-soviet state are quickly modernizing. Their demand for oil is more fierce than ours (we've actually lowered our demand) because these modernizing countries do not have the tech or infrastructure to support other fuels to keep their economies growing without more oil. Thus, global demand is raising faster than ever before.

    This means, even if all peak 9all oil) US oil production is reached, the inevitable is only delayed for, at most, about 10 years, then we are exactly back were we are right now and NOT any better off for it. In fact, we are worse off because we would drain our reserves while destroying arable land for years.

    Any country that drills for oil without also investing in smarter energy is woefully short sighted.
    So why ethanol which lowers MPG?

    Personally, I don't think voters are that stupid.
    They elected Obama.

    Keep thinking that the only reason we have expensive gas though is because we don't drill for it and keep your head in the sand. I just hope most people aren't like that or we are really screwed.
