No one who has decided that they are against Obama and I'm not even bringing race into it even though that is obviously a factor in some circles, no one is going to give Obama credit for anything.

He literally made a gamble on the 40% chance that his advisers gave him that a year of intelligence gathering would pan out and that the order to take out the mastermind behind the largest terrorist attack on US soil that happened on Bush's watch would work, Bush who said he didn't give a shiat about Bin Laden...they can't even give him that. That's how Goddamned petty the Republicans are. They don't give him credit for taking out Bin Laden. Read that twice. So no, they'e not going to give him credit for anything else, ever.

And he's still going to trounce Romney, because people aren't quite as stupid as the Republicans are counting on them being.

Of course Obama is drilling for more oil. Do you know how much industrial anal lube costs? The production costs alone have put many a company out of business.
 
2012-05-16 11:03:50 AM  
Remember: he's just doing this because it's an election year! If he is reelected than he'll immediately shut down all refineries and make everyone convert their vehicles to run on leprechaun farts as everyone is forced to gay marry their pets after he takes all their firearms away! It's all just a ploy!

This is all because of George W. Bush's vision to expand our economy after the Clinton Recession which he inherited. ()bama is merely riding his coattails!

There are 5 remaining monthly federal jobs reports that might disagree with that assertion.

I absolutely hope you are correct, but if the job market goes in the total crapper and the unemployment number starts to rise, it could make things close.

Then again, those 5 reports are probably the only thing on earth that will give Romney the slightest chance. Not a great position to be in if you're Romney.

Today's oil production is the result of decisions made many years ago. Obama has had very little to do with today's oil production.

I am sure they will give him credit for all of the negative things that occur while he is president, and for the twenty years following it.

Ask yourself this: would any Democrat give a Republican President credit for anything positive? Of course not.
 
2012-05-16 02:34:32 PM  
The only reason the GOP hates his energy policy is because he doesn't want to let a CANADIAN company build a pipline across OUR COUNTY to sell oil to FOREIGN countries.

I think President Obama will win.
I also think the election is going to be unnervingly close.

For some reason - there has been an oddly successful campaign painting Rmoney as a secret moderate. So long as people have the impression that Rmoney is in, but not of, the Republican party . . . people can speculate that he really will lead the country as a moderate.

If they buy that Rmoney is a moderate then the question is: moderate Republican Rmoney OR President Obama?

People are idiots. We cannot underestimate them.

President Obama is the best Republican President we've seen in decades. Yet, he's widely accepted as an overreaching liberal usurping constitutional power.

People are idiots.

What? Keystone has nothing to do with selling Oil to foreign countries. Unless by foreign you mean Illinois? We don't need to pipe oil through America to sell it elsewhere, we have two open coastlines to do that if we wanted to.

The Republicans have been forced into imposing Sharia Law because of the heathen currently serving as President. The Republicans are forced to ban beloved freedoms before the President does.

What?! Seriously? Okay, here goes...

1) George W. Bush stood up for American Muslims and forced us to focus on al-Qaeda rather than Muslims in general; Osama bin Laden even complained about this in the documents we confiscated from his complex.
2) George H. W. Bush was willing to marginally raise taxes to start us on the path to balancing the budget even in the face of getting crucified by his party.
3) Ronald Reagan's 1986 tax reform (though it lowered tax rates too much IMO) did a great job of reducing tax expenditures and removing a big source of government intervention in the market.
4) Richard Nixon was willing to institute a universal health care system that, while somewhat flawed, had many positives. It was also more Ted Kennedy's fault that it didn't happen.
5) Dwight Eisenhower created the farking Interstate Highway System, probably the single most successful public works project of all time.

This may actually cause some of the environmentalist wing of the party to stay home, so this is bad news for Obama.
