Yo JT, I didn't indicate in my post which phrase in Ex Mayor's post I considered
racist. You seemed to find it without effort.While that alone
doesnt make my case, it certainly doesnt help yours.
To Rut vs MedSince when is "shucking and diving" considered racist.
Some people are just too overly sensitive and trying to be too politically
correct. I swear you Obamabots try to make everything about race even if you
have to pull it out from between your cheeks (not the ones on your face if you
get my meaning). From the Clinton's "kid", "fairy tale", "Jesse Jackson" and
"MLK" comments all being spun as veiled racism by Obama and his supporters, I am
lead to believe that Obama is willing to sacrifice all the progress this country
has made dealing with prejudice just to try to win with sympathy and guilt.
Obama playing race is just a form of extorting votes. The only racists I see are
Obama and his supporters.
To JAB 2:21 let's hope your spellchecker kicks in soon.
to "ex mayor"Please keep you thinly veiled racist comments to
yourself. It begs the question as to what type of community you would be mayor
of.We all know that if you dont fit the approved ethnic or worship
profile, you can only go so far in the Republican party. You should listen to
those educated people you were slamming.Barak Obama is a better
person and will make an infinitely better president than John McCain. That is
straight talk you can take to the bankif your bank is still solvent.
Who cares? It's the stupid economy, stupid.
McCain's lies are almost as bad as Bush's. They are both horrible men. McCain
would make a terrible president.
I see that the "Minitry of Truth" is alive and well. Mr. Bush
didn't announce that he was sending 30,000 additional troops to Iraq, he
announced that he was sending 12,000.The fact that he ended up
sending 30,000 is only indicative of the depth and breadth of Mr. Bush's contact
with the realities of Iraq (or, alternatively, that he has no idea that there is
such a thing as a logistics tail for any detachment of troops in combat).If Mr. Bush had taken a look at Sun Tsu, he would have had some idea of
the probable fate of a general who doesn't know what he wants, doesn't know what
he has, doesn't know who the enemy is, doesn't know where the enemy is, doesn't
know what the enemy has, and doesn't know what the enemy wants.
If I understand all of the libs and their media cohorts; the surge did not have
anything to do with the improvement in Iraq, the President rescinding the
executive order did not have anything to do with the lowering of the cost of oil
and Obama thinks if his plan would have been implemented Iraq may have even been
better than it currently is. Talk about Alice in Wonderland thinking. Up is
down etc. What is scary some really educated people act like they believe it.
Surely they are just shucking and jiving us.
Oil companies buy oil in devalued dollars. People think oil producers with take
dollars worth half as much and not adjust the price? The same is true for, corn,
Iron, gold or copper. If, I produced oil I would want euros pounds or yen over
dollars or pesos. Business is about making money not being a charity. Bush will do something to destabilize the oil market and prices will climb
once more. Iran is buying SS 300 air defense missile from Russia. Conservatives think debt magically gets paid off. I dont see our economy
reversing for at last a year.
John McCain is not an honorable person. He misstates, then says he didn't. He
supports one initiative, then says he never did. He straight talks out of one
side of his mouth, then double speaks out the other. Only a freshly
caught trout flip-flops more.He says he will run a campaign above
the fray, then accuses Obama of supporting genocide while Obama is laying a
wreath at the holocaust museum in Israel.A basket of rotting fish
smells better than stench coming off the Straight Talk Express.
He can deny it all he wants. There was a transcript (which at least yesterday
hadn't been scrubbed) that is now in circulation. The rest is merely comparing
his words to the historical record. And, guess what? He was flat
out WRONG. Like he has been about who the Suni and Shi'ia are. And who he
choses as advisers. He's lost it. He doesn't have his faculties
anymore. It's that simple.
"Note: does the GOP really have to nominate grandpa after these
goofs???????????? "What goofs? Like Obama not knowing which banking
committee he sits on in the Senate? Obama has enough gaffes to keep those Bush
calender publishers busy for another eight years. But I half hope
Obama wins in November. If McCain wins the ire that the media and democratic
interest groups have carefully cultivated for the last eight years for Bush will
just come back in four years. With Obama and a Democrat Congress in
power, the Bush tax cuts will be repealed and that revenue will go into the
enormous new proposals Obama promised. Deficit spending will continue to
increase unless they pass new taxes, which will put tax rates at an all time
high. This will retard job growth and set up from for a new wave of Republican
victories post-2010. Bush's approval ratings are terrible but about
half the population still identifies with small government and low taxes. If the
GOP can regroup and cleanse itself of its recent excesses, it could come
back.Otherwise, be looking for a good offshore tax haven.
I just told my cat that i think that McCain kind of acts like Bush.The cat jumped out the window.
McCain misspoke. He is old Give grandpa a break, will yah.His brain
worked better 8 years ago. He is slowing down now. Someone tell him please.Note: does the GOP really have to nominate grandpa after these
Here is one possibility: President Bush goes on tv and announces that we are in
trouble, that we will drop the speed limit to 70, etc. on federal highways, and
that encourages states to drop their speed limits too.That is step
one: ack. there is a problem and give us the first piece of simple action that
can take place tomorrow at 8 am.Decrease speed means less gallons
used, which means that demand falls a little and a surplus starts back at the
pump... which then leads to a drop in prices.Nuclear physics it
ain't. It is called supply... and demand. Demand falls, supply grows, prices
fall. It ain't nuclear physics.
Please explain the better plan. Someone, anyone. You are all so intellectual.
Please explain how to get gas prices to drop and meet the demand for energy in
He's is still a day late and a dollar or so short, he only acted after pressure
and a feared revolution.
Can a conservative intellectual elitist please explain what is unique about gas
that oil must be transported thousands of miles from its source so, it can be
refined were there are higher land and wage cost than, if oil was refined in
Perhaps McBush should bring this up in the upcoming televised debates. This, plus every other topic in the debates should be both interesting and
highly entertaining.I'm trying to be respectful and compassionate as
I can, but it seems to me Senator Obama has set the stage for chewing McBush up
and spitting him out - but the decency and class Obama has exhibited thus far
might indicate he will only take the gloves off unless forced to.
We could drill all the oil wells we want...if we don't build any refineries for
the "new" oil the gas will never make it into our cars and the price won't go
down....there is a large cork in the supply line in this country and it is not
enough refineries so drilling won't help the problem...Plus McBush wanted to
send all our alaska oil overseas anyway...How the heck will that help us???
wow we haven't even started drilling and gas prices drop. What are the
dumbocrats going to argue next, Global warming?
Yesterday the conservatives wanted us to believe Bush wasn't accountable for any
assurance during the last seven years. Today, Bush controls global
oil prices. :-)
Once the speculators see that America is serious about increasing supply in the
long run, then the price of oil will go back to where it was a couple years ago.
$50 - $70 a barrel is not unrealistic. Remember, demand did not increase
proportionate to the rise in oil prices just this last year. It was $70 a
barrel just last summer and I thought that was too high personally. Let the
Markets work, let companies bring more oil supply online.
This is an immediate reaction to the resolve that will further happen as
Americans get on the ball. If we can get Congress off 'dead center' and show
OPEC that we are serious about "drilling here, drilling now" you will see the
prices further drop. We need to use every means to become energy self
sufficient, sooner, rather than later. If it takes years to get more oil, let's
start NOW, rather than wait another minute: the results will come sooner, rather
than later. Vote those out who will not comply!
It appears that McBush, the neocons, and the entire GOP can sense a landslide
victory for Obama and perhaps a new beginning for America and they are throwing
caution to the wind in absurd and desperate comments as this.
The only thing that Bush has made go down during his presidency was his job
It sure sounds like McCains Alsimers is kicking in!!
I guess my reasoning was flawed after all....not a single comment in
That's like saying that Bush saved a guy falling out of a window after Bush
pushed him out of the window. In other words, you can't be the hero when you
were the villian to start off with.
Really, so when prices go back up we can count on Bush to bring them back down!
Please, I thought they went down becuase of increased supply. Also Bush started
talking to Iran just like Obama wanted to and the threat of Iran shutting off
its supply was temporarly removed from market.Futher, if elected
McWar will bomb Iran and lets see how much we will be paying.
Bush had nothing to do with the drop in the price of oil. Can you say "supply
and demand"? With the economy tanking, there was less money to spend on
gasoline so the price dropped.It's clear McCain knows and
understands exactly nothing about the economy. Sad.
McCain will be as pathetically horrible as Bush has been.
Bush can't make anything go down except the spirit and emotions of the country.
The last 7.5 years with 181 days remaining, have been a nightmare for any
right-minded person. Nothing could be worse than a continuation of any sort of
How stupid does McCain think we are? Even the most loyal republican has to be
scratching their head on this one.
Amazing that the Bush Administration found oil that fast! Maybe now they can
find those weapons of mass destruction...
This person tells us:"The President does not have any control over oil
prices. "So - McCain is lying?
re: Patrick. Speculation, learn about it. Please, point out to the rest of us
just how you who know so much. What would cause gas prices to decrease. Here I
will help, let them get so high that people choose a different form of
transportation. Then hope the rest of the world does the same. Isn't that the
unofficial Bush hater talking point. Economic lesson: Production of a raw
material produces wealth. After that the money is just traded around, speculated
on ect. Perceived, supply and demand. Perceived. Next you will tell me if
Congress lifted the ban it wouldn't affect gas prices either. Oh, and the other
talking point. It will take at least 10 years for this to affect oil prices.
I think if McCain wants to be president he better quit backing Bush. People are
tired of Bushe`s antics.
Funny how the price in oil dropping by 10 dollars last week made my price of gas
go up by 10 cents. Go figure....
If he is taking credit for the whopping $10.00 drop in the price, will he also
take responsibility for the previous $100.00 increase in the cost. His made up
war definitely contributed to the increase in cost.
I attribute it to the fact that we have the Days of 47 coming up and gosh dang
it, people need gas to get to the parade! But then again, I could be wrong and
Its really coming true McCain is nothing but a mirror image of Bush. He says
stuff that doesnt make any cents. Well that may be wrong but Id bet that if
McCain gets elected President you will really have less cents to buy
I am not sure if the President had anything to do with the drop in price either
but your arguement is flawed. The President does not have any control over oil
prices. A supplier can charge what they want. However, the president changing
national policy opening up new venues for oil exploration and drilling could.
An increase in supply in theory would decrease price if demand remained
consistant. Simple economics.
If Bush can make it go down, then why did it go up?
You have got to be kidding. I think John M. has been in too much sun in
Arizona. The next report will be that he is considering Mitt as his Vice Pres.
GET A LIFE. The funniest part of this article is that people will actually buy
what this guy is selling.
I attribute it to volatility.
The price of oil went down because we are finding our tipping point, the point
beyond which we begin to make changes to our lifestyle based on price. There
were, as mentioned, a couple of recent letters taglined 'stop blaming bush'. So
we shall not credit him, either. Government could take more of a leadership role
in conservation, but won't, so the invevitability of economics will. Enjoy.
Oil may have dropped ten dallors a barrel but I have`nt seen any price drops at
the pumps. I think it`s just a tempory thing and prices at the pumps will
continue to rise.
Just yesterday, a person wrote: "Bush has nothing to do with oil prices!" It was
(as expected in this the reddest state)met with thunderous applause.And today we read Bush is responsible for the drop in oil prices.I
love election years!
The notion that Bush's largely symbolic "ban lift" had any effect at all on
crude oil prices is asinine. Any half-witted economist could tell you that
commodity prices are based on much more influential factors than empty political
This is why I will be voting for McCain in November. If Congress will lift the
ban oil will drop at least another $10 a barrel. Don't be fooled. Democrats have
told you it will take 10 years to affect gas prices. I hope the voting public is
not that dumb.
