The reps were pointing out the hypocrisy...the media for some reason has been rather silent.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
So where is all the media storm blaming Obama policies for the prices today?

As soon as Bush took office, all he got was flak from Dems.
As soon as Obama took office, all he got was flak from Reps.
Either side trying to act like they didn't do so while the other did just reinforces the stereotype IMO.
I'm talking in general, chief. If you want to act like your party did anything but ridicule the other's president, go right ahead. But I watched it happen from both sides.
He can control the release of gasoline from the reserves, I doubt he's doing it now because that'd be idiotic but if he really wanted to he could
So all of the video clips in the link were dubbed over? They did not really say the things that are in those clips? w/jw
According to you the policies of Bush were to blame for the high prices under Bush but the higher prices of today are not Obama's fault?
If when Obama pressed him on his plan to start reducing the deficit he said he was going to legalize marijuana and tax it then it's game over.
It's 3.49 in Ga.
My party? I freely admit the Republicans pointed out the hypocrisy in the media over the gas prices. I have seen many Repubs claim that Obama's restrictions on drilling etc would lead to higher prices as well. What I have not seen is the media all over the Obama admin about the historic prices of the last 2 years.
Bush did that to benefit his "oil buddies"?
So now that Obama is in office and the region supposedly much more stable then the prices should have fallen...and yet last year was a record year.
So according to the media...and apparently you. High gas prices under Bush = Bush's fault. Higher prices under Obama = not Obama's fault.
Did Fox news dub over all of the voices in the linked video clips? Did the people in those clips really not say those things?
Well if the prices rose because of "Bush policies" destabilizing the region...and now the region is supposedly more stable. Should not the prices have dropped, not be at an all time high?
Once again, did Fox dub over all of the video clips that you immediately disregarded?
So then the rise in global demand is Bush's fault? Funny I seem to remember some of the right talking about the increasing demand in China etc but it was quickly drown out by the "Bush's fault" cry from the leadership from the left.
yeah wtf was he thinking bringing politics into this thread
LOL, now that is funny coming from you.
yes clearly nonpartisan on your part. I still have no idea who you support.
Eh as much as people bash the guy, Bush did a pretty okay job at working with said countries on the price per barrel.
Production is obviously bottle necked by refineries, or in our case, the lack of them.
Approving more drilling wouldn't do much good as we can only refine oil so quickly with limited oil refineries.
We get our oil from Canada and Latin Amerca. 40% of our oil comes from right here in the US. 45% comes from Canada an Latin America. 15% comes from the Middle East. The Middle East instability shouldn't really ever dramatically effect our gas prices. Stupid Americans. Blame the Canucks.
The fall in the value of the dollar is a huge factor in the high prices. I am sure that is Bush's fault as well.
Buddy, south Louisiana usually has some of the lowest gas prices in the country. We are paying 3.30, Cleveland, Ohio was at 3.12. Come on man
I can't explain how he's blamed the Bush Administration for 10 more trillion in debt but he does.
It was inherited.
You clearly dont do well catching sarcasm. I thought we were all just throwing bullshit to see if it would stick.
