It is time for this Nation of Sheep to wake up. Based on this article: Times Tough for Energy Overhaul. Struggling Economy, Falling Oil Prices Complicate Obama Team's Agenda, December 12, 2008, by Neil King Jr. and Stephen Power. The current skyrocketing of oil prices is directly related to the Obama administration, and its desire to circumvent Supply and Demand, with a policy to get Americans to pay the same price, for oil, as Europeans. The administration is led by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Chu as energy secretary, and former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Carol Browner as White House energy adviser. "Chu has stated that it is his goal is to ramp up gasoline taxes over 15 years to coax consumers into buying more-efficient cars and living in neighborhoods closer to work." He further stated that, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." "Ms. Browner has been a critic of proposals to loosen restrictions on oil and natural gas drilling in the outer continental shelf, arguing that such moves would do little to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil and risk damaging U.S. coastlines." Now remember, this was an article from 2008. Gasoline prices have risen 116% since Obama took office. Do you see a cause and effect relationship here? Apparently, 91% of Americans don't. Polls just taken say that only 9% of the American public think Obama is responsible for the increase in gas prices. This same poll notes that Americans think that the price increases are mainly the result of greed and price speculation. Looks to me that Americans are lazy, non think ers, and unless things change rapidly, this economy will not recover, and we will, again, elect this Marxist to another term. The Sheep Bleat, But Continue To Follow. Don't wait until the elections of 2012. Demand that Obama be Impeached, Now! This is the only way to insure that we will have a real election come 2012, and not a Coronation.
