Obama is not just a horrible president. He is a horrible human being. He really is.

I wonder what the OPEC ministers think of Obama raising the price per barrel?
They must be shocked.

Or, are you talking about nationalizing oil production?
Did I say "big oil companies?"

The big oil companies don't want new ones built, for the reasons you stated. The big oil companies even wanted 0bama to end the oil depletion allowance for independent oil companies, so only the big mega companies could afford to drill, which is why they would not be in favor of independent oil companies building more refineries.

"Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," Mr. Chu, who directs the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in September.

Obama: “You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”
0bama supporters have conditioned themselves to ignore all of those quotes.

You have it wrong, 0bama is refusing to comment on the rise in oil. The higher the better, as far as he is concerned when it comes to energy prices.

Care to elaborate or should we just take your word for it?

I, for one, think he's a decent president who supports policies for the middle class. I see no evidence that he is anything but a decent family man human being.

Consumers Taking Financial Hit From Rising Fuel Prices
American has already been (nearly) destroyed by the Car-addicted, and their expensive, wealth-draining living suburban living arrangement. Rising oil prices look like a long term certainty.

This is just the beginning of a Long Wake-up call for Americans to learn the lesson that most of the world has already taken on board. If you are hurt by rising gasoline prices: then you seem to be a fool, a sucker, or maybe just someone who has not yet awoken and found a way to live a less car-dependent life. It is a good time to rethinking driving habits and car dependency !
