Transcript from Obama speech at Stivers today:
If Iran decided to shut down the petroleum-rich Strait of Hormuz tomorrow, they believe oil would skyrocket to $300-a-barrel in minutes, a price that one speculator predicted would result in $12-a-gallon gas. $12 a gallon.

This idiot doing nothing about the rising gas prices is only hurting himself - the terrible economy is only going to get worse and he is the one to blame. Food and goods prices are continuously rising and this bozo does nothing and says nothing. This empty suit must be defeated in the next election.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He might want to resign if that happens and let the acrimony flood all over Clueless Joe.
It’s not that he is doing nothing, it’s that he is assisitng the rise. It his his goal to turn America into a 3rd world nation, and he is taking every necessary step to do so.
The president is the arch enemy of america and the arch enemy of liberty, and what’s even more frightening than this is that he stands a pretty good chance of being re-elected by this country’s plethora of idiot citizens.
It's only fair.
More and more I’m starting to believe those here on FR who say he will find a way to create some kind of catastrophe so that we 1) won’t have an election or 2) ???
As I recall, Obama the Cloward-Piven disciple loves high gas prices, but wants to employ the slow boil the frogs where we are the frogs who won’t somehow notice.
He is counting on mexicans and brain dead idiots dependent on welfare to pull it off for him.
Wrong, he is destroying the US. Which is what he wants to do.
Its what his pals want
Outsourcing and a massive trade deficit with countries which block our own companies from exporting to them, are every bit as damaging to America as Obama.
Should we not remove the “free trade” log from our own eye, while correctly accusing Obama of harming America?
I met and visited with a retired senior exec of a very prominent American corp. the other day. We had a lengthy conversation on many topics at dinner. He expressed his deep regret that he had voted for Obama. He said that Obama turned out to be the complete opposite of what he purported to be. Yep.
$12 gas will result in the lynching of politicians.
How people could not see through this jerk early on is quite beyond me in the Internet age. There is NO excuse for such ignorance when so much information is at our fingertips.
Do they also understand that his inept cadre of czars, etc. has devalued the dollar to the extent that this has also had an effect on the price of gas????
> How people could not see through this jerk early on is quite beyond me
He always has a scapegoat and a media that backs him up on it. It is unfortunate that in the internet age, you are still faced with elderly getting their “news” from the original MSM networks, and the young getting it from Jon Stewart, Comedy Central, MTV and SNL.
“How people could not see through this jerk early on is quite beyond me in the Internet age. There is NO excuse for such ignorance when so much information is at our fingertips.”
I think the answer is simply that people saw what they wanted to see.
$12 a gallon gas?!?!
If it ever got that high we would have long since been at war with someone.
There is surely an element of that, but I still say there is NO excuse. As voters, many had become far too lazy. Perhaps this is exactly what was needed to spark some effective energy. Active, intelligent participation in a democratic republic is essential!
Being There in real life. Chauncey (Chance the) Gardner is President ... but without the innocence.
Vanity: "Being There" The movie--Have you watched it since Chauncey Gardener Obama was elected?
Iran may try to close it down but it would be back up in a matter of days. The West would see to that.
Wasn’t that mentioned in the atlas shrug movie.
Same song... Different drummer....
Obama’s indecision and inaction after Hormuz is closed is what would drive the price sky high.
Ordinarily, the market would expect a swift re-opening by US Military forces, but with Zer0 in office, they will expect inaction and a long closure.
Are they really this stupid or is it a way to show us their power? One other poster noted that at $12.00 per gallon we would begin lynching politicians. I think the threshold for that is already here.
$12 gas will result in the lynching of politicians.
What these people are doing should be considered treason. Give these politicians a quick military tribunal, then hang their a$$es!
Obama ‘doing/saying nothing’ - puts Soros Agenda ‘for America’; right on schedule.
He is creating chaos with his actions or lack thereof.
He wants to do this, of course.
People like Soros (globalist) and groups like the islamists, find a strong foothold amidst strife and confusion. uhbama bends to soros and sucks at his teat for money, but, imo, it is the setting of the stage for economic destruction and islamic sharia that is most likely his goal.
Our Consititution is under attack by assigned regulators who are, along with a congress that has been a bad steward of OUR MONEY,stripping us of the power to engage in liberty and prosperity.
