    Obama's Energy Secretary Steven Chu: "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe"

    Gasoline prices as of Feb. 25, 2012, in U.S. dollars per gallon:
    (http://www.drive-alive.co.uk/fuel_prices_europe.html)

    Italy . . . . . . $9.00/gal
    England . . . $8.05/gal
    France . . . . $8.00/gal
    Norway . . . $9.45/gal
    Germany . . $8.40/gal

    Our gasoline prices aren't there yet. But we're definitely on track to get there.

    Is it November yet?

    Actually, if BO pushes gas prices to Euro prices, he will most certainly be a one term president and go down in history as our nations WORST president, but also as the first anti-American president. (He will be the worst even if he does not do this)

    This is somewhat typical of radical leftists. They are so ignorant of the truth, they invariably self-destruct if left to their own devices.

    well this administration has always said it is fine with stratospheric energy costs and is doing it's utmost to obtain them. and it is not inevitable given the fullness of our resources.

    I hope they're voted out before they get much further along.

    Obama will be the first and the last black president. There wont be any more hes their only hope. It just like this,, What if Jackie Robinson sucked in the major leagues? We might be still be watching the negro leagues today. What if Jim Brown sucked in the NFL? The NFL would still have all white players. Look at South Africa soccer players. At one time it used to be all white then it took a group of black players to beat them now black players are allowed to play on the national team. See you have to prove yourself so others can follow you. You see Branch Rickey took a chance on Jackie Robinson it was a risk for the future and he turned out to become one of the greatest baseball players in history. Obama could never turn America around so he blew the future of black candidates to become president. If Another black candidate shows up running for president he wont win or even be nominated because theyre gonna remember Barrack Obama.

    well I agree that BO has set blacks quite a lot since he and the ol ball and chain are the poster children of affirmative action in action. but I would hope that qualified blacks will still pursue public service if they are conservative.

    Hopefully they (and everyone else) will realize from this episode, that liberalism produces nothing but chaos and ruin, even when administered by blacks.

    Every cloud has a silver lining. I hope.
