      Thank him for what? Gas is still 38% higher than it was a year ago. What is the current rate of inflation?

      Lavon, you a funny blind man. Hope you have one of those seeing eye dogs.....Gallup polls last week showed your savior behind, so he starts doing things that will help.....finally. It's all about the votes Lavon, and last week, your man found out he was in trouble. Obama does remind me of Bush, they are the same color you as Greed

      You get credit where credit is due. So would you care to comment on the housing market in a double dip? How about the general economy rapidly approaching a double dip when just 3 weeks ago your messiah said it would not happen? How about the war in Lybia? No comment? You and the liberal media sure had plenty to say about bush's war. How about the cost of food going up? Any comments? Any comments on barrack's incompetance regarding the dead soldier who recieved the CMH? Oh wait; he's not dead. You want us to give this bonehead president credit?!!!! He has done NOTHING to deserve it. NOTHING. You checked out his poll numbers lately? Like a rock. The sad part of it all; the odds are good that he may win the next election because of the ignorance and color/blind loyalty of many Americans(marion barry syndrome). And here is another observation for you; most individuals will defend their candidate if the accusations ARE defendable. You are most likely one of those individuals. Although lately, you've been silent. That's because you know his incompetance is not defendable. Yet you continue to support him, and I know why. The same reason the other 95% still support him.

    Now if Barack Obama could lower the taxes per gallon at the pump we could spend our money in other ways to stimulate the economy.

      Then he wouldn't be able to claim that his actions directly helped the economy. Where's the political gain in that?

        His moratorium on drilling helped to cause the two dollar spike in gasoline prices, we are still at a dollar more per gallon. We need a new president with a clear energy policy and not one that needs on the job training.
