[QUOTE]In Response to Re: GOP clarifies its view on rape/abortion : Bush and Obama did cause some minor shocks to oil prices with the involvements in Iraq and Libya, but that is temporary and not terribly significant given the size of the world market, and the ability of producers to quickly ramp up production. That some idiots might have blamed Bush for high oil prices does not excuse blaming Obama for the same, or explain why the price of oil should be a topic of debate in a Presidential election. And....are you sure Obama hasn't done much to allow exploration of domestic production? My recollection is that accused liberals on BDC pointed out articles evidencing that the order Obama issued post-Horizon was temporary and limited, while he made room for more expansion than under Bush. Also there was this Republican-manufactured fiasco about a pipeline. Obama said "not before X," so Republicans demanded before-X and urinated on themselves in rage when, as promised a few minutes before, Obama said no. As for Romney's tax returns, don't you think that if a politician says that giving more tax cuts to rich people will create jobs, it provides more data on that point to see whether he in fact created more jobs when his taxes were lowest? It's one more data point. The math doesn't make sense. When you're talking about people that rich, there is no reason to think they'll spend more just because they end up with another mil in the pocket from tax cuts. As for small business..... The only way a tax cut for people or businesses "creates jobs" and thereby helps the economy is: 1. Demand exists for more products than the small business can produce. 2. The small business requires at least one more employee to meet that demand. 3. The small business is so stretched that it cannot even borrow money to meet payroll for that employee, until the demand is met and the business becomes profitable. 4. Workers suitable for producing the given product exist; AND 5. The size of the tax cut covers the missing money required to pay for this additional employee. Just how many small businesses are in that precise position in this economy?

Republican manufactured issue with the pipeline?
You live in a vacuum apparently.
Obama vetoed the international link of the Keystone XL pipeline bowing to pressure from the evironmentalist left much to the consternation of construction unions because of the thousand of jobs that were lost because of it.
Obama has been asleep at the wheel when it comes to the development of domestic energy despite the oil boom in N. Dakota that is taking place on private lands and from wells approved by the Bush and Clinton administrations.
You can't fill all the job wanteds in N. Dakota.
We are the richest country in the world because of our deposits of shale oil, coal and natural gas but more than likely will not see it come to fruition until Obama is gone.
Two identical bills have languished in the house and senate since 2008 attempting to promote the use of domesticated liquified natural gas by the nations truck industries which Obama has ignored in lieue of a green agenda.
