"Rising Gas Prices Have Dented Obama's Rating: Poll"
Notice how liberals accuse conservatives of being "anti-science." Yet who is the MOST anti-science President of them all? None other than Barack Hussein Obama who continues to hold out the bizarre hope that windmills, solar energy, and pond scum can supplant petroleum as an energy source. This is especially laughable now that new technology is able to produce oil from the Alberta Oil Sands and shale deposits like the Green River Formation out West which has enough proven reserves to supply us with our energy needs for at least the next three hundred years. As to what is currently available just by pumping, take a look at this VIDEO about the oil boom at Williston, North Dakota. 24 BILLION barrels of proven reserves in the ground which means there are probably a lot more. So with all this oil available, what does our unscientific president do? Continue to underwrite solar energy companies which go bankrupt (after taking some of the money to donate to Obama 2012) and nix the Keystone Pipeline which can bring the Alberta Sands oil down to our refineries in the states. Is it any wonder that gas prices are rising as the same time as the Bamster's poll numbers are plummeting which is what worries the DUmmmies in this THREAD, "Rising Gas Prices Have Dented Obama's Rating: Poll." Of course, the DUmmies also buy into Obama's unscientific fascination with harvesting pond scum and other forms of "green energy" that have maybe enough energy to turn on a light bulb but not power large vehicles. Also prevalent among the DUmmies is the dopey notion of "peak oil" which declares we already got as much oil as possible out of the ground and it is all downhill from here in terms of production which completely overlooks the latest scientific advances in extracting oil from the tar sands and shale. So let us now watch the DUmmies bemoan Obama's plummeting poll numbers due to the easily avoidable rise in gas prices in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, powering this DUFU edition with DUmmie scum, is in the [barackets]:
Rising Gas Prices Have Dented Obama's Rating: Poll"
[Which is now causing a flow of flop sweat among the DUmmies.]
More than half of Americans for the first time expect Barack Obama to be re-elected - but that won't make it easy: Even as expectations have moved his way, rising gas prices have dented the president's rating on handling the economy, his overall job approval has slipped back under 50 percent and he's reverted to a dead heat in public preferences against Mitt Romney.
[Under 50 percent like down to 41 percent.]
The results of the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll mark two political realities: One, the sharp division of public attitudes for and against Obama, with continued greater intensity of sentiment among his critics. And two, the damaging political effects of rising gasoline prices, which have surpassed the federal budget deficit as Obama's single weakest issue.
[Let's see. I have to put gas in my tank at around 4 bucks a gallon so you expect me to drive to a polling station to cast a vote FOR Obama? Yes, I cast my vote for more HIGH gas prices...NOT!]
Americans by a broad 65-26 percent disapprove of how the president is handling the price of gas, which has gained 49 cents a gallon this year to an average $3.79. Strong critics outnumber strong approvers by nearly 4-1. And it's important: A vast 89 percent are concerned about the recent run-up in gas prices; 66 percent are "very" concerned about it.
[Have no fear, DUmmies. Those statistics will somehow translate into a PLUS for Obama at election time... Hee! Hee!]
The survey, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, shows a broader impact, underscoring the risk to Obama. His approval rating on handling the economy overall has lost 6 points in a month, to 38 percent, a mere 3 points from his career low in October. Intensity again is highly negative: Fifty percent strongly disapprove of the president's work on the economy, up 9 points to a new high in his presidency.
[Reading this, a lot of DUmmies are already reaching for their Depends.]
It would be great if we had some legislation that would speak to the speculation driving the price up. They are trying to make him fail and this is just one of their ways. Congress could help by putting some legislation in front of him, but with the worst do-nothing Congress in my memory, that is not likely to happen.
[Yes, DUmmies. It is the speculators fault that Obama continues to sit on his thumbs while doing NOTHING about actually increasing oil production.]
. Obama should start releasing the strategic reserves or at least threaten to do so to make speculators flee.
[We've been down that road before and guess what? Gas prices are now even HIGHER.]
at full storage capacity, the SOR would last about a month. Nationalizing oil production and refinement, OTOH, would be the best weapon in Obama's arsenal. He might catch flak from the right and conservative democrats, but prices at the pump would plummet precipitously. Surely, provisions for this action already exists in contingency plans filed under the National Security heading. USE IT MR. PRESIDENT!
[Hugo Chavez USED IT and oil production in Venezuela has FALLEN.]
I doubt if that strategy would work if the Koch brothers and friends were to cut production to stay ahead of the curve.
[Ah! That good old standby boogeymen. The Koch brothers. Did they also hypnotize Obama to withhold approval of the Keystone Pipeline...until after the election?]
So in other words we better get used to being bent over the oil barrel because the cynic in me doesnt believe things will be changing for the good for most of us any time soon as far as gas prices go.
[It will change right after a new president who believes in scientific REALITY is inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2013.]
Face it-Peak Oil isn't coming, it's HERE!
[A Peak Oil loon weighs in.]
The gas prices are not Obama's fault.
It's one of the best kept open secrets today that the world is running out of large crude oil deposits. It's running out. Flat. That's the scoop. The GOP can side step or deny the issue all they want but the fact is the jig is almost up. All the low fruit has been picked.
[What about the nearly 2 TRILLION barrels of "fruit" in the Alberta Tar Sands?]
Really? How do you know? Not to disparage anything you have said, it would be nice to have some references.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL! How dare you challenge DUmmie Peak Oil Dogma?]
Greedy, unrepentant Wall Street speculators want to hang this on Pres Obama
[Yeah. They somehow twisted his arm to promote pond scum energy production.]
I can understand 3 bucks a gallon. Even 3.25. It starts to hurt my budget bad after that. Others are saying it might go down next month. I hope. I have to keep my total bills under 900 a month.
[Pray to Blue Fairy for gas prices to fall under the leadership of the Sec. of No-Energy Chu.]
Solution: nationalize the energy industry
[Is that you, Hugo Chavez?]
stupid f*cking brain dead americans. apparently the hard lesson wasnt hard enough. maybe they got to have round two of republican oppression before it sets into that atrophied mass between their deaf ears. im so sick of fighting the republican's greed. maybe the dems should elect r's to office maybe when millions are homeless and starving they'll begin to wake up. talk about useless eaters. uneducated+uniformed=american voters
[LOL! That last line is destined to become a CLASSIC!!! Guess who is "uniformed" you brain dead DUmmie.]
I've held that belief for a long time. It ought to be obvious to any thinking American that the oil corporations are squeezing the public with high gas prices to oust Obama.
[Yeah, and they drugged his drinks so he would stupidly refuse to approve the Keystone Pipeline thus hindering the flow of oil to the refineries.]
I heard just yesterday how we should be proud of $5/gal gas because it's a sign of a strong economy. That's right WTOP (DC news radio) claimed yesterday that it was better for gas to be $5/gal than $2/gal because it showed a strong economy.
[Yes, my little DUmmie. Swallow that leftwing spin hook, line and sinker.]
Like it or not.. $4 gas is the line in the sand... point zero..
point zero.. where people have to decide between buying food and putting gas in their car. This will devastate any improvement in the economy and will mean the Mr. Obama is finished.
[Please STOP with the painful TRUTH!!!]
Where is the LEADERSHIP? Where is the "vision" for our country?
Where is the road map for the future?
[Bo the Portuguese Water Dog buried all that along with his bone in back of the White House.]
you would think....a Saul Alinsky trained community organizer would be a little more proactive and little less chicken about taking on the crony-capitalists of the oil monopoly on behalf of his employer, the American people....to many with lowered expectations, Obamas' failure to vigorously pursue the crony-capitalists is his major sin and will more than likely cost him needed votes....this lack of fight and aggression have many believing that he is at best, an only okay president....
[I can already envision the campaign bumper stickers: Obama 2012: An Only OK President.]
