    How many times must the FACT be stated that the US President HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRICE OF GAS?!?!?!?!?!? The free market, which Republicans seem to hard on constantly but apparently do not understand, sets the price, period!

    @STLDan……the free market responds like a YoYo to political and government events….it even responds overnight to political statements and Obama’s regime has caused a lot of businesses to hunker down for better times after the Nov.6th election….influencing the prices of all stocks and commodities, including oil and gasoline. Even the National Debt, increased by the Obama policies, spending and borrowing, influences the free market.

    If one was to put the Dow or Nasdaq up on that blackboard how would it fare?

    War on Terror (Islam)

    In their 2003 book, “An End to Evil- How to win the war on terror”, David Frum and Richard Perle (Mr. AEI and “defense”) state after the fall of Baghdad, and of course the end of the Iraq war- in 2003!:

    “We can pay for it (war on “terror”) by holding the line on federal spending, setting tax rates that promote economic growth, and borrowing the remainder. We borrowed to win the Civil War, borrowed more to win World War I, and and World War II, borrowed again to win the cold war. Victory triggers economic prosperity-which in turn repays the debt we incurred to achieve the victory. How to pay for the war? The same steady answer that yields growth and prosperity in more normal times: keep taxes low, keep domestic spending under control, and borrow responsibly."

    That’s what these two “geniuses” said in 2003. How did that work in 2008? These guys retain power today, and Mitt and company march to their drum, for more war, spending, and no taxes, but more borrowing, and MORE debt, how’s that work for you??

    “Reagaonomics”, not just “W”, got us into this whole mess, and Perle and Frum still beat the drum, that Mittens marches to. It bears repeating.

    The government can set policies that prevent the free market from working. The president and his administration can set polices that force industries into layoffs. This is what Mr. Obama and his administration has done over the last four years. Poor policy does affect the prices of goods in the market. A pro-energy candidate like Mr. Romney can set policies that will increase the supply of energy in our country and create millions of jobs while bringing down the costs of goods and services. If you would rather vote for a president that hampers the free market and tries to buy votes and wants to print money until the dollar is worth less than the ruble, then go ahead and re-elect Mr. Obama tomorrow.

    p.s. debt at end of “Ws” last fiscal year was $11.9 Trillion, and still climbing due to HIS “budgets and tax cuts”.

    why do you insist on living in the past? George W. Bush hasn’t been president for almost four years. Mr. Obama is the issue, and whether his policies have been good for America.

    ^The past was the foundation of our present, and it was cracked.

    Then help us change the cracked system by voting out Mr. Obama. If you want real, positive change, Mr. Romney is the best answer on the ballot tomorrow.

    Really? What federal power do they control, trout?
    They are 2 different Americans with opinions, and they make use of their right to free speech. You, dtrout, use your free speech to spread your views daily. I do not agree with you on any subject, and I do not believe your speech expressions give you “power” and I do not fear the “power” of Frum or Perle.
    But I do fear the REAL POWER of Obama, Biden, and all the top leaders appointed by Obama….who do have CONTROL of our government. No matter how outrageous the words or actions, since Jan. 2009 (when the Bush Debt was $10.6 Trillion and you keep lying about it being higher) of Obama and his ultra Left departments of State and Justice (now Injustice) and etc, et al. I pray God allows Obama to be fired by the November 6, 2012 VOTE.

    dt: you might want to check out how much lobbying power the American Enterprise Institute, and AIPAC hold on the congress, both the House and Senate. All the power doesn’t rest in the White House, not by any means.

    It is notable that Misters Perle, at Defense, and Mr. Frum, beat the drums loudest to send out troops into harm’s way in Iraq, for no good, valid, or honest reason. Mr. Perle is the key to the Romney/Ryan “budget plans”, as the affect turning this country over to corporate power grabbers. It isn’t their “opinions” but actions they’ve personally taken when in “government” and out, that have nearly destroyed this nation.
