$4/gal gasoline. Obama's payoff for his Big Oil Buddies and Big Oil Doners

As Democrats in Congress pretend to be concerned with "average Americans", the truth is that $4/gal gasoline is Barry Obama's gift to his Big Oil Doners.

Everyone who reads anything knows that BP is one of the Socialist In Chief's biggest owners, I mean doners.

Obama biggest recipient of BP cash

Obama still gets oil money
"He took in $46,000 in donations from executives and workers last month. In a TV ad, he said he took no cash from companies.
"April 24, 2008|Dan Morain | Times Staff WriterSen. Barack Obama continued accepting donations from oil company executives and employees last month even as he aired ads in which he stated he took no oil company money, his campaign finance reports show.

Obama has taken at least $263,000 from oil company executives, family members and employees since entering the presidential race last year, including $46,000 last month. At least $140,000 has come in chunks of between $1,000 and $2,300, the maximum permitted under federal law."

Are the oil guys Democrats? Wow. I wonder how many other industries have Democrat interest? I bet it is a given that most doctors who perform abortions vote if not donate to Democrats. And maybe it is the politics they donate towards and the write offs they can get, and not some bribery machine. Best just stop donations period. If anything if people want to see the politicians, all those wanting him in your state, could just buy a plane ticket and bring him over to meet Aunt Bee and all the others and maybe stay in the guest room or Opie could let him use his room. And let then the kids at Opie's school draw up in crayon political posters. Don't worry about the media not covering a story...that will be the day.
Gas went to 5 dollars plus in 2006 or 2007 and we hear the same old bitching about the Republicans....Flying J went under due to purchasing oil at a high price and then it suddenly dropped and J went bankrupt. Oh they are still around, because they had to merge.

Because, back when Bush left office, gas prices were between $1.50 to $1.86/gal
Now that the Democrats are in charge, now that there is a Democrat president, gas prices are over DOUBLE what they were under Bush.

It's obvious that Obama is a shill and a whore for Big Oil and his a spinless puppet controlled by Marathon.


Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

Just saw a couple of Toledo gas stations at $4.15. Don't ever believe any politician, no matter what political party they come from, when they tell you how concerned they are about high gas prices. The Democrats, who are always "concerned" about everything, are just as guilty of this as are the Republicans. They know how to put on a good act.


Hey Lib.. get out of your parents basement and get a job and stop listening to the all the hate talk radio. Both parties don't care about the American people. All they care about is bowing down to the corporate moneymen.

LMAO....yeah that's what libtards always say when things go to shit on their watch.....yeah everybody does it....

Remember when gas hits 5.15 a gallon.....you suckers voted for this shit...

YES WE CAN.... pay over $5 a gal.!


Yes We Can, Yes We Did and Yes We Will........2012...............2012...............2012..............
RUN SARAH RUN! Run DONALD Run! Run Donald and Sarah, RUN!

not like purehate pays her own way anyway...

I still see Toledoans driving those big-assed trucks and SUVs. What the fuck did you think would happen? The cheap oil exploitation of the 20th Century is over. The cheap oil is all gone. What's left is expensive oil, since it's a lot more expensive to get it from the low-pressure or dilute or bound sources that it's in.

The long-term price of gasoline is at least $3/gal. It will slowly plateau upward every 2-3 years, surrounded by price spikes as we let obvious speculators buy up oil legally without any intention of using it. So the price should climb permanently by $1 every 3-4 years, with $2 price spikes.

Get rid of those egotistical trucks and SUVs or pay the price. This is not Liberalism talking. It's the exact opposite of Liberalism: Economics. Change to embrace fuel efficiency or you're just going to be poor.

Although I understand your theory, I don't agree that "the cheap oil is gone".

We are seeing higher prices because they are being driven up artifically by Barry Obama and the Democraps in Congress who are also owned by Big Oil.

This moratorium on American companies drilling in the Gulf of Mexico is what is helping to drive up the price.

To lower the price of a commodity like oil, you only need to pump more into the market. Since Democrats in the Obama regime will not allow American workers to drill for American oil on American land with American made equipment, Democrats have made us slaves to OPEC. OPEC, with the help of Barak Obama, are the ones who control the supply of oil. OPEC decides how much oil the world will get per day.

And, since Democrats are holding American companies back from drilling, Obama's payoff to his Saudi Oil Buddies is to let them rape the American public.

So, to flood the market with oil and lower the price, do an end run around OPEC. Drill in the Gulf like other coutries around the world are doing.

And, drill ANWR. Because according to the USGS (that means the United States Geological Survey in case you Dems still don't read) if oil reaches $30/barrel, then it would be profitable to produce between 3 and 10.4 BILLION barrels per day.

Here is part of the summary section of the USGS survey.

"this study estimates that the total quantity of technically recoverable oil in the 1002 area is 7.7 BBO (mean value), which is distributed among 10 plays. Most of the oil is estimated to occur in the western, undeformed part of the ANWR 1002 area, which is closest to existing infrastructure. Furthermore, the oil is expected to occur in a number of accumulations rather than a single large accumulation. Estimates of economically recoverable oil, expressed by probability curves, show increasing amounts of oil with increasing price. At prices less than $13 per barrel, no commercial oil is estimated, but at a price of $30 per barrel, between 3 and 10.4 billion barrels are estimated. Economic analysis includes the costs of finding, developing, producing, and transporting oil to market based on a 12 percent after-tax return on investment, all calculated in constant 1996 dollars.

The amounts of in-place oil estimated for the ANWR 1002 area are larger than previous USGS estimates. The increase results in large part from improved resolution of reprocessed seismic data and geologic analogs provided by recent nearby oil discoveries."


Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

I have always paid my own way........as have ALL of my siblings and all of our families. A very productive family. How about yours?


Really?....ok...where where you employed?..When did you have time for a job?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

you are really strange. You don't know me, where I have worked or anything else about me. Yet, you want to give the impression that I am on some type of welfare...I have NEVER been on any type of welfare, no HEAP program (stay caught up on my utilities) or any other program........Strange!

I'm well aware of your volunteering...thus the question...

When do you find time to work?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

do I have to work? I am still working after beginning my work history in 1960. So if I am adding correctly that is a 50 year work history and I filed my taxes for 2010. Still working and as stated before NEVER being on the public dole. What about you?
