There can be no doubt, these people are deliberately out to destroy this economy, no doubt at all in my view.

Whats the price of oil per barrel RIGHT NOW?

I suspect that will be very useful next week, politically.

That should be good for a drop of about 500 points on the DOW and a buck increase at the pump ...

It took Jimmah the Peanut about 8 months to reveal how ignorant he was ... Obozo is working OT to do it in less than 3 weeks.

Up next - a cap on the price of oil. Makes as much economic sense as capping executive pay.

Regular gas dropped to $1.56 a gallon in my area after Bush defied Congress on drilling. With Obama, its now up to $1.93. And climbing.

Thanks ABathar.

And yes, lets see what happens as a direct result. We all know the oild prices began to tumble when President Bush revised the existing EO on this topic.

O’s payback to the Saudis. We could reboot our economy with energy exploration in the USA. This is the ONLY way to pay off all this debt. We have 4 times the Saudis oil reserves in the lower 48 states onshore.

Don’t take it out on your body. Go to the target range, better yet find a practical shooting group and join.

Besides, if you blow out your liver, you may have to rely on the upcoming DMV/IRS healthcare system they may set up.
