And guess what, people noticed. You Democrats were historically shellacked in 2010, then really blown out of the water in 2014. The American public doesn't want your policies and doesn't want you neglecting the economy and even party stalwarts like Schumer and Harkin are stepping up to the plate and admitting it.

You libs and Democrats are suffering from severe PTSD right now, to the point where you can't even bring yourselves to seriously discuss the changes going on in this country without getting hysterical. Worse, you nitwits have to resurrect two and a half year old threads to try to score pathetic talking points.

What a bunch of losers.

I still have not read your post thanking Obama for the low gas prices.

Why can't you do it?

Since you blamed him for high gas prices in your OP, I would expect you to thank him for the low prices today. Either he controls the price of gasoline or he doesn't. Which is it?

Last night on the news they were showing a sign for gas at $1.99. Can't recall where it was, possibly Kentucky? Anyhow, the one on my way to work hasn't budged at $2.89 in past week but we don't normally go to that station or even the one at our normal grocery store within our state unless we can get at least .20cents off per gallon [shopping reward points]. We usually opt for Virginia or even Maryland - Costco.

We had thread after thread here with demcorats calling Obama smart for releasing it.. telling us to just wait, because the price is going to drop after he released the oil reserves. I dont even need to be bothered looking for it but I remember laughing my ass off at left wing kooks who proclaimed such ridiculous ****.

Thanks, Obama for reducing the price of gas. If we can blame him for increasing the price, we can certainly give him credit for reducing it, right?

The WH said it would not affect the prices. Your other link says Soros wanted to tap the reserves to ruin Russia. How does that support your claim? As for the argument for drop in the immediate term, I admit not recalling the arguments, but it seems they were right. They tapped the reserves, and the gas prices dropped from $3.93 to $3.30 in the immediate term.

Lol! Look at you silly people, ignoring the hot messy reality that slapped you in the face a couple weeks ago, gnawing over a two and a half year old post like it has some sort deep meaning. Those are some kind of nasty sour grapes you folks are sucking on right now.

You're kidding, right?

What I do give Obama credit for is totally discrediting the whole concept of liberalism. It's been amazing watching him ignore the economy. Even the NYT is throwing in the towel on this fiasco. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/03/op...arty.html?_r=2

I can just see after 2016 you libs and Dems are going to be mining 10 year old posts.

Yeah.... ummm.... but seriously. ... why can you "thank Obama" when prices are low yet blame him when they're high?!

Enough dancing around it w all of your false rationalizations trying to save face.

Just admit it. You started this BS inflammatory post over 2 years ago. He wasn't the real cause of increasing prices then. Just like he's not part of the falling prices now. He was just a scapegoat for your anger and vitriol just like he will be if it rains today.

Now don't be a hypocrite. Here, I'll start you off:

"Thank you Obam- "

Now you try.
