    Lesson Obama needs to publickly call out these speculators by using holder to investigate them. He needs to be seen by the people doing every thing to ease their pain with high gas prices, he also need to open up the oil reserves. The repubs is going to holler free marker and government over reach, because they can ill afford to lose the only political event going in their way at the moment, with high gas prices. They've tried to sabatage this president ever since he took office. They've push their war lingering crap to Iran knowing Iran was going to cut oil production to spite the west. I don't know if its sabatage or just incompetence, because every thing these repubs seems to do, ends up a catostrophy.

    The state of the union is so bad they had to pick the most unlikely time for people to watch it. That tells all

    Good morning. Between Paul and Santorum the GOP is getting a good spring cleaning! 🙂 Bring the troops home from Afghanistan and fight the war on terror with intelligence.
