Change - you can believe in! (if you believe you have it too easy now)

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.... That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."

That's Barack Obama in his own words. The problem isn't supply, or too little refining capacity, or OPEC gouging the free world, it guessed it, US. This is the typical liberal battle cry - Blame America First. So if you like to drive something other than a Prius and live in comfort, you are the problem. And Barack is NOT going to help you. Remember that when you go to the polls.

In fact, remember this; Barack and the rest of the Democratic party WANT US TO SUFFER. They would love it if gas hits $5, $6 or $7 per gallon - as long it does it before November. The worse off we are going into the election, the more they get to blame Bush and everyone who supports him. Mark my words - the Democratic Congress (who get to take all of August off and will only "work" for a maximum of 160 days this year) WILL DO NOTHING until after the election. Even then, what they do will be to make the situation worse.

Obama and everyone in congress make over $160,000 per year. That's just salary. That doesn't take into account just about everything they spend money on is probably a deduction on their taxes so they pay less than the average person. It doesn't take into account book royalties or appearance fees for speeches. Do you think they give a shit about the price of gas? They can afford it. Remember that when you go to the polls.

Remember that in addition to making your energy costs worse, Barack will actively reach into your pockets for more tax money. Not only will everything cost more, you'll have less take home pay to cover those costs. But remember, if you like to live in comfort, drive an SUV, then you get what you deserve. So says Obama.
