yes, many conservatives blamed Obama for the high price of gas, this is in response to OBAMA saying that failed energy policies cause the price of gas to go up..

So clearly, Obama knew what he was talking about as a candidate, according to liberals, because they did vote for him, so if thats true, and Presidents are responsible, then they are, which puts Obama to blame for the increase..
The OP started a thread over two years ago, blaming Obama for high gas prices.
Now that gas prices are significantly lower, the same OP refuses to give credit to Obama for the decrease.

My position is clear: I do not give credit to Obama for the lower gas prices, nor do I blame him for the high gas prices.

Your last line...??
Are you saying that liberals voted for Obama because he promised to lower gas prices?

WOW

I don't put my political beliefs ahead of what the truth is, so I don't entirely agree with his statement. There is much more to it. However, more distinction needs to be made between presidential policies and the president waving a magic wand to raise/lower gas prices. You may say that it is implied when someone says, 'thanks, Obama' they are referencing Obama's policies and not solely Obama, but it seems that many believe he is some omnipotent commander who changes the direction of the country on a whim.

Candidate Obama was referencing policies, people in this thread appear to reference the president and him alone.

You however are claiming he was saying the president can just yell "raise/lower gas prices" and then it will happen. He never said that, and nor does a President Have that ability so you were wrong.
So is Obama responsible for the climb in the price of gas, and thus the fall, or is he not?

As usual, you seem to want to have it both ways..

They clearly voted for him based upon his promises.

ACA saving $2500 per family
Cutting the deficit
going through the budget, line by line.
Insuring every american.

Are you really suggesting they didnt listen to anything he said?
