Will Obama Rely on Gas Prices to Boost Election Prospects?

According to USA Today, prices at the pump could soon drop dramatically – gas could average $3 or less per gallon by the fall. As of this weekend, regular gas was clocking in at $3.47 per gallon, which was already down significantly from April’s $3.94 per gallon.

Watch for the Obama campaign to begin citing irregular statistics like this as evidence that their economic program is working. With broad overall statistics like unemployment and income trending poorly, the Obama administration will be forced to grasp at straws – and particularly, at straws they can control, like gas prices.

Thanks to President Obama’s willingness to kowtow (literally) to dictators in the Middle East, gas prices are perhaps the easiest single commodity prices to control – if Obama’s in trouble come November, watch for him to reach out to the Saudi government promising goodies should they up the oil supply prior to the election.

    There is NOTHING this SOB POS can rely on to boost his prospects! People are homeless and living in their vehicles, people are jobless, and yet these scumbags keep sending taxpayer dollars to third world countries and bankrupted solar companies – but, they can’t do anything for the American people especially the elderly and handicapped.

  2. Noob says:

    I don’t care if gas is free, there is no one, let me repeat, no one in this household that will vote for this anti American POS.

    • oldcoyote says:

      Same here. I wouldn’t vote for Odummy or Orummy if gas was free. Why? Because of the swine that controls them.

    • Brenda says:

      Unfortunately there are some who will vote for him because they think he can control gasoline prices.

  3. ace says:

  4. ace says:

    The Democrats can not make up their minds when George Bush was i9n office he could control gas prices and whenhe left prices climded out of sight and they say now the president can not control prices that a lone is hugh lie the Democrats have told .

  5. ace says:

    If  he would give me a dollar a gallon Iwould not vote fo this crook .

  6. Skyknight says:

    Obama has already cut a deal with the Saudi”s to flood the market with oil and bring down prices until after the elections. Just like he told the, “he will have more flexibility after his election”, then look for the prices to go way up for pay back.

    America needs to take away that flexability and make his first term HIS LAST TERM!

     This is worth the read. I found this post on another website whose
    author says to kindly post and spread all throughout the land….

    Who am I?

    I was born in one country, raised in another.

    My father was born in another country.

    I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.

    My mother died at an early age from cancer.

    Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father, not my mother.

    Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

    My birth records were sketchy. No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it
    was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional
    beliefs and didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

    That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those
    who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father
    abandoned me as a child.

    I became active in local politics in my 30′s; then, with help behind
    the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national
    office in my 40s.

    They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.

    I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.

    Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign
    policy… I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized
    every opportunity to bash my country.

    But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy.

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.

    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

    It was the free market, banks and corporations.

    I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

    I called mine “A People’s Campaign”.

    That sounded good to all people.

    I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the
    traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular

    I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could change our country and the world.

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of
    the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities”.

    My true views were not widely known, and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader.

    I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found
    out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and
    examined those people associated with. I’m glad they didn’t.

    Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

    And then world learned the truth….

    Who am I???


    If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE,You should be scared, very scared yet motivated to put an end to ANY tyranny, foreign or domestic, against OUR NATION!!!

    Mr. Obama just as in the Past will claim fame for any good thing happening in our Economy that is of a pleasing nature……But as usual its not exactly why Gasoline is getting cheaper……Nothing more nor nothing less.
    than “Supply and Demand” is controling Gasoline Prices. Crude Oil Supply is really getting plentiful…..

    Mr. Obama has done nothing, zero, zip, for America. He has wrecked just about everything he has come in contacked with. His Presidency will make Jimmy Carters’s look like a Blessing……

    And you know, when all the SMOKE and Mirrows go away, the truth will come out from the closed Doors.

    • Budman321 says:

       Like what? That Obama is a Marxist and that he wasn’t even a U.S. Citizen and the Democratic Party knew this? There is evidence they knew this during his campaign of his ineligibility and covered it up.
      Why is it that when Obama has told everyone since the day he began campaigning that he was a Marxist and in earlier days that he was born in Kenya, not Hawaii but tries to pass off the phony Hawaiian birth certificate that people ignore this? So does the media, Congress and the Supreme Court. There is so much evidence right before our eyes that he also has a  phony Social Security Card, Selective Service Number and he was a foreign exchange student in college. Well people, you can’t be a U.S. Citizen and be a foreign exchange student at the same time.
      Now, his own lawyer had to admit he wasn’t eligible to the the President when a challenge to produce the birth certificate was ordered and then they claim he wasn’t on the ballot of that state anyway, another lie as he certainly was.
      Based on the admission of the lawyer, Obama could be removed from the ballots of all states. Are any of them taking action to do so? What has this country come to if they allow an ineligible person to remain the President and seek another term?

    It wont do you any good obummer we are to your con game.

  10. Tank says:

    Yeah, nobody will notice the, “I’ll ruin the economy, destroy the job market, dig us into mega huge debt, then when nobody can afford to do anything, gas prices will come down with the reduction in demand, and I’ll WIN!!” This idiot is the kind of guy that would burn down a forest to save a single bird, then act like it was a genius plan…

    • Budman321 says:

       OPEC is only a partner in the regulation of gas prices. As I said before, the speculators are the ones that drive it up. Think of it as a business. A good business would not raise the price of their product out of greed as they would lose business but maintain it at a price that is acceptable to the public. OPEC knows this and they keep it only as high as the market will allow. If the market gluts, they stop production or scale back to maintain balance. The instant shoot up in price is caused by speculation of oil. George Soros is a speculator and imagine he profits more from this than OPEC as a whole does.

    Bet your _ _ _ _ _!  — He promises everything and will not even come up with CHANEL NO. 5! — Everybody better pray real hard before they give the country away to a dictator!  — Enough with his executive orders, already!!!!

  13. colleenf says:

    That’s all he has to go on??
    How pitiful.

  14. icemancold says:

    WELL WELL:: If Muslim Dictator Obama thinks that by lowering the price of gas a few cents will get him re elected hopefully he is wrong.HOW EVER IT SEEMS THAT PEOPLE ARE STUPID ANYMORE. SO OBAMA LOWERS GAS A FEW CENTS ONCE RE ELECTED OBAMA WILL RAISE GAS A FEW DOLLARS.!!!!

  15. ghendric says:

    Gas can be a nickel a gallon for all I care. I’ll never vote for Obama.. I have a long memory. I’m smart enough to know that any little gestures by those in power is just that… a meaningless gesture.. if they really cared, they would cut all that inflation they’re creating by all that spending they’re doing. They think we’re too stupid to get it.. it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that they’re robbing us by devaluing our money for their own gain..

    • Budman321 says:

      You are right about this and how do you destroy a country from within? You ruin the economy by overspending and insane regulation to create chaos. This creates division and necessitates a call for the military to control the masses. If you think that this administration is on that path, you would be right on the money.
      What do we, the people do about it in November? You should know that another four years of Obama will mean this country moved from Capitalism to Socialism and he did it through the above mentioned ways. We have a cowardly Congress and a wimpy Supreme Court who won’t recognize he is not eligible to be the President in the first place and another reason why change in Congress is also needed.
