    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    Wow, a thread in which Obama doesnt take responsibility for something. Whats next? A thread where Obama blames Bush? Or a thread where Obama takes credit for ending a recession that ended before his policies took effect?

    The suspense is killing me.

    What you're probably referring to, and mangling badly, was a brief spike in June on fears of an Israeli attack on Iran:

    A spike from what was already a record high to a new record high.
    Not that your article proves any more than 1/3 of what you say in your post. But hey, I'll take your word for it. Been taking ginko biloba?
    And doesnt Israel need US assistance to perform a strike on Iran that would even matter?

    Whatevs.

    The article headline could have just stopped at "Obama doesn't accept responsibility..." nor accountability, but that may be a different threat.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's a pretty stupid comparison.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    The international OIL MARKET is way to complicated to attribute any rise or fall to one person (exceptions do occur). The steady rise in gas prices has much more to do with with a raise in demand in the rest of the world than Obama's policies preventing the US from sucking the rest of oil out of the ground.

    Let me google that for you

    Crude Oil Price History

    Got anything which supports your assertions?

    Been taking ginko biloba?
    Ah, an "old" joke. Knee-slapper.

    No, I just know what I'm talking about.


    And doesnt Israel need US assistance to perform a strike on Iran that would even matter?
    Ah, move the goalpost.

    Whatevs.
    Whatevs, indeed.
