    I wasn't talking about bull**** Truther theories. I was referring to blaiming Bush for not doing enough to stop the threat and deal with terrorism head on.

    If we can blaim Obama for gas prices, than we can blaim Bush for ALL of the failures that took place before and on 9-11.

    its not a bull**** Truther theory, that Bush failed in many ways to stop terrorism & prevent 9-11. Its a fact. Ask Richard Clarke.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    If for nothing else, Obama should get blamed for the effects of his on-again, off-again, on-again attitude toward domestic oil and gas production. But nobody has ever accused Obama of being consistent.

    You mean the whole 18 months Bush was in office prior to 9/11? Clinton knew about this threat for 8 years and did nothing, including a chance to take out bin Laden that he chose to pass on. Clinton also said Iraq had nuclear weapons, and did nothing.

    He is doing all he can possibly do to bring Israel to the peace table and deal with the problems re Iran..

    That market nervousness is what is driving higher prices.

"If you're suggesting that there is responsibility for a rise in the price of oil, it's certainly not because of anything he hasn't done to expand oil production," Carney added.

    This is an interesting and important turn in the upcoming election. Can Obama, with his moratoriums and pipeline blocking, successfully pull off the "don't blame me" game when few presidents before him could? IMO 5 or 6 dollar a gallon gas could spell the end for his re-election plans, despite the mess the republican filed of contenders is. This is an issue that will weigh heavily on the outcome of the election IMO.

    True. However, what people miss is that when you seek to assign blame, you have to point to actions taken or not taken that are the cause. Causal relationships are difficult, and can't be just that he was president.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
