(Townhall)   It's certainly nice for the rest of us that oil prices are coming down. But it really screws up Obama and Secretary Chu's plan to keep energy prices so high. Maybe now they'll apologize for crucifying oil companies. But I doubt it   (finance.townhall.com) divider line 113

Or maybe it means the President doesn't have any influence on the prices.

RexTalionis: Are these people ever happy?


This is a rhetorical question, right?

We're talking about people who are pissed off that bin Laden was killed.

I'd love to get my hands on some of what the clowns at Town Hall are smoking these days...

I'm guessing I can pick some up in the cleaning product aisle at my local market?

Gas prices are coming down!
This proves that fartbama's scheme to screw up the world isn't working.
Fartbama is such so bad at being president, he can't even work to screw over the economy without failing.
Take that fartbama!

It's not that they aren't happy, it's just when you have to rely on atavisitic fear to keep your followers cowed enough not to question the irrationality of your plans you have to keep finding new things to frighten them as reality conflicts with your message.

I would like some evidence of how this administration has "crucified" the oil companies. Specifics only, please. Not the typical vague crap I get when I ask these questions.
 
2012-06-14 10:22:49 AM
Oil companies have been crucufied?
When did this happen?
 
2012-06-14 10:28:59 AM
I wish I could be crucified with billions of dollars in tax payer subsidies.

That's dreaming small.

You want to be the victim of class warfare so you can reap the biggest corporate profits in history.

They're not so bad. Though, I hear the "munchies" are a biatch.

He has. It's his cross to bear, and as such has been hammering them for years now.

Christ you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me.

There's no one I feel more sympathy for than the oil companies. Well, maybe GE

/Must be hard having record profits every quarter and paying no taxes

I'd rather we just burn oil company execs at the stake. Something tells me the slimy pricks are probably very flammable.

Yes, Obama and Chu were conspiring to have oil prices rise higher and higher, so that the American people blamed Obama for it and voted him out in November.

On a related note, has TownHall ever been right about anything, ever?

It's the same evidence that Obama is coming to take away our guns. The super-secret double-think kind.

This is pure gold. Amazing. Not only is it a socialist plot when it goes up, but ALSO when it goes down. Delightful.

Everyone knows subsidies hold people back. Look at welfare...welfare is what is keeping those people poor. It's to the oil companies' credit that they are able to make record profits DESPITE being subsidized.

They've pretty much nailed pandering to the stupid, the willfully ignorant, the cowardly, and the appallingly short-sighted.

There is no reality in their stupid brains where Obama has the United States' best interests in mind. It just can't be possible. It would be like asking a regiment of black soldiers to fight for their country in the Civil War.

Well, you know, he wants to do away with some of their government handouts because they make enough money and don't need them. To Republicans, this is crucifying them.

Best interests aside, they can't even conceive that he's not actively trying to subvert things.

I read that whole article and tried real hard to find even one thing that wasn't completely asinine and full of derp.

I failed.

I heard he didn't even offer Fat Bastard a tongue bath the last time he visited DC to lobby for another trillion dollars in government handouts.

TownHall should actually get an award for being such a progressive company that they only hire mentally handicapped individuals. I am also a little jealous that the writers get paid for this drivel....I wish I could work while drunk.
 
2012-06-14 12:25:20 PM
Actually, they will take full credit for it in hopes of winning the election.

/ p(re-election) = w1*exp(-[gas prices]) + w2*exp(-[unemployment rate])
 
2012-06-14 12:27:15 PM
My ignorance made me believe Obama was to blame for high gas prices.

So now that they're falling I gotta go with "Great job, Mr. President."
 
2012-06-14 12:27:16 PM

RexTalionis: Are these people ever happy?


No, and that's the point. These type of people feed off of anger and hate. They cannot be constructive in their own lives, just destructive in others.
 
2012-06-14 12:27:26 PM
"Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of the United States, going into reelection, wants gas prices to go up even higher?" he said. Turning to the room at large, he added, "Is there anybody here who thinks that makes a lot of sense?"

It's what they'd do in his position.

[gas prices go up]: "SEE, SEE????!?! FARTBONGO RAISED GAS PRICES SO HE COULD START GREEN ENERGY SHARIA LAW!!!1!!1"

[gas prices go down]: "Huh. That really sucks for fartbongo, doesn't it? Har har har!"

I am pretty sure you're the only one on Earth who believes that, but I am sure that's so you can label yourself "unique".

That does give me an idea.

1) Get loaded out of my mind
2) Write stuff that I think a conservative idiot would say and submit it to Town Hall / American Thinker / WND
3) Get paid
