bottom line - Obama will have to win re-election with no record. To suggest that the economy is getting better is silly - 8.3 unemployment is not something to get excited about and by the time summer hits and the $5 gas prices American's will have a clear choice going forward. Romney should embrace the support from Shell and Standard oil for sure - OBama has KILLED all new drilling and vetoed a pipeline that would have produced 25000 jobs along with the oil to boot and now he has $5 gas prices to try and explain away ... or blame away ... good luck with that Barack! Unemployment should be around 5% instead of 8% with the trillions Obama has borrowed and wasted. Our national debt is 16 trillion and set to be 20 trillion under another OBama term - which would mean America becomes Greece!This insanity has to STOP!!!! Obama is a train wreck and all these silly side shows he keeps orchestrating - occupy wallstreet or this contraception nonsense are all smoke screens and nothing more to divert attention - or attempt to and hope Americans are as dumb and gullible as they were in 2008.

Yeah, that pipeline that wouldn't have been complete for years would have had a HUGE impact on gas prices now.

I think you got all the Sean Hannity/Glenn Beck/Rush Limbaugh conspiratorial talking points in one concise paragraph. Congratulations.

@ CHS 85
Well I can see your short slightness in the energy issue. Would it have immediate impact on fuel prices not much. How ever it would do a number of things bring 25,000 new jobs to America, In five years time we would decrease the our need for Islamic Oil by 95 percent It would let the development of our oil fields as well and we could tap in to that pipe line and ship our oil for refining we have in North Dakota right now on private land over 100 years of oil that we can tap in to. See I hear this from the loony left all the time it will take five to ten years to get anything back on our investment. So with that logic why plan for retirement? Or go to college or medical school because you won't get any results for at least eight years. Or you can look at it like this your planing for your children's future and they will reap the cheep energy.

"Yeah, that pipeline that wouldn't have been complete for years would have had a HUGE impact on gas prices now."

Democrats throughout the decades:
1990: We can't do that, that solution will take forever, at least 10 years! We need something that will fix the problem now!

2000: We need an immediate solution, not some "long-term" thing! Besides, ANWAR drilling will ruin some of the animals' favorite vacation spots!

2010: Oh, sure, you suggest a pipeline that will take forever before it has a significant impact. We need to find a better way to lower gas prices now!

2020: .... same thing

Don't you guys realize that if we did do something 10 years ago, we would now be benefiting? And can't Obama come up with a solution that doesn't add another trillion dollars to our debt?

Which begs the question of why this pipeline wasn't completed years ago? This subject will come up again this summer when gas is over $4 a gallon. It will be something to divert Obama's attention away from Romney's religious beliefs.
