    Could start by strengthening the dollar -- do something serious about the deficit.

    Or, continue the current plan of trillion+ deficit spending and loose monetary policy until we find ourselves in the next great recession and people can't afford to drive - that would work too.

    You can't get gas under $2 without direct regulation. Isn't that contrary to good ol' conservative principles of free market?

    Seriously... does Bachmann ever talk out of her mouth instead of her you know what?

    At least those weren't concrete and clearly BS. Obama did a great job of letting people hear what they wanted to hear without actually committing to much. To make a promise that is clearly impossible...well, she's digging her own grave.

    Re: Bachmann: I'll get gas under $2

    this can only happen by either:

    A: invading and conquering a oil-rich state, and STEALING all of their oil.

    B: heavily subsidizing fuel costs in the USA.

    so either Bachmann is claiming that she will be a tyrant or a Socialist.

    which..is it?

    if healthcare can be free, gas can certainly be $2 a gallon.

    this is loony land, where we can make all kinds of promises using doublespeak.

    healthcare is free for poor people in America.

    now, how do you suggest we make 87 octane gasoline $2 a gallon?

    How do you think that'll happen. Isn't oil freely traded? I guess you could nationalize the oil industry and regulate gas prices. That would be nothing like socialism...
    Just think of all the jobs that would be created. oh, but we can't have that...can we?
