    The precipitous drop in gas prices in late 2008 coincides with something else. I'll give you three guesses as to what it was and why it caused gas prices to drop so sharply, and the first two don't count.

    Using the "RAWR GAS PRICES WERE $1.85 UNDER BUSH" just shows that you don't understand how gas prices work. The unemployment rate argument is just so blatantly stupid I'll assume you were making a mistake.
    I never said gas prices don't fluctuate, I recall when they hit 2.80gal and Bush was the devil. I also remember the news opening their evening news cast with reports of high prices. Point is under Obama the prices seem to stay right around the 3.50 a gal or higher. And if you remember or even care to Barry himself said this was part of his plan. " energy prices will necessarily skyrocket under my plan" or something close to that.

    You're attributing the sudden plunge in gas prices in late 2008 to "fluctuations"? Wrong answer, try again.

    Its all perception, and people perceive themselves paying well over 3.00gal for the last 3 or 4yrs. If you like paying almost 4$ a gallon for gas of course you wont perceive it the same as me. Six years after Jimmy Carter was gone everybody still thought he sucked, because he sucked and the same fate waits for Barry.

    No, it's not "all perception." You're simply evading. Answer the question. Why did gas prices plummet in late 2008?

It included about $1.1 billion in indirect funding for the 2002 games, including such things as highways, transit systems and other capital improvements." Slaloming Through Olympic Facts The same article said that $1.1 billion was already budgeted for those projects and may have been accelerated due to the upcoming Olympics. Most of the rest of the federal money went for increased security in the wake of 9/11.

    As for vague claims re consensus, we have Romney's record in Massachusetts. Nothing vague about it. He did it.

    I know it doesn't fit the politically correct version and the assigned partisan talking points, but he did it.

    The fact is Romney has a very good and very transparent track record demonstrating that he knows what is necessary for a successful business, how to achieve a successful administration, and how to identify and solve big problems. For a very long time now, I know of no other candidates running for high office, who can claim experience and credentials like that.

    Is he the best man for the job? I don't know. But I sure as hell know he has more real experience than anybody else that I can think of who might run.

    Lol, you're not critical of right wingers. Quit pretending, Grant. It's unbecoming of a grown ass man.

    Yet another horrible misuse of the term "politically correct."

    Hillary made money by selling books to people who wanted to buy them. Mitt made money by buying whole companies, firing the employees and selling off the assets. That's productive?

    Not only is it not obvious that President Obama hates America, the very notion is an absurdity. While you claim Mr. Obama has had "poor performance," that isn't even evident. The nation is in far better shape than it was when he was elected.

    As far as elections are concerned, voters never were enamored with Obama, but they disliked Romney, who came off as Thurston Howell the Third, an entitled millionaire, who insulted 47% of voters.
