Posted by: Commonsenseparty | December 13, 2012, 9:01 am 9:01 am Not 'wrong' at all. In fact, it's exact. Gasoline hit $4.12 per gallon national average way back in 2008 under Bush. The price then collapsed along with the rest of the economy in late 2008. It’s currently at about $3.30 per gallon national average – far lower than what it was under Bush in 2008 – and the price has been dropping. Jacob | December 13, 2012, 2:51 am —- Wrong!

If we do not get spending under control, we could see the collapse of our financial system. This collapse would take the rest of the world with it. I don't care on which side of the political aisle you sit, this must be addressed. The proposed revenue increases will not solve this problem. Like 48 of the 50 states (CA and NY excluded) and the 100,000,000+ households in the U.S. , the government must learn to live within its means. I pity future generations for the mess we are leaving them. Folks, we are are playing with fire here. If we do not get spending under control, we could see the collapse of our financial system.

Under Bush, gas average was $2.11 per gallon over 8 years. Under Obama, we are nearing almost $3.50 AVERAGE per gallon. Do a little research and you can find those numbers.

Because he will grow up - not having a clue - of how the world REALLY WORKS. LOL...it isn't about 'rigid ideology and dogma'...LOl...that's exactly HOW they control you. And the 'sad part' is that I know that if you read this - you will be offended and 'double down' on that dogma and rigid ideology - instead of open mindedly thinking...and questioning. That's WHY they pander to you, my friend. In reference to last nights conversations…to EIGHTIESRULED1….all I can say is that I ‘really feel sorry’ for your son.

Sure, and I guess gasoline went back up and stayed around $4 a gallon under BHO because the economy's doing sooo well again... Sorry, not buying it Jacob. “Gasoline hit $4.12 per gallon national average way back in 2008 under Bush. The price then collapsed along with the rest of the economy in late 2008.”

To be a Democrat is to hold contradictory "facts" and insist on a synthesis of those facts. For example, the common Democratic idea that government is run by a conspiracy since the death of JFK, but meanwhile, given that we are under a secret police state, let's disarm the public via gun control. Because a good response to bad government is to let government be the only ones with guns. LOL! As stated, inflation will hurt the poor. Democrats argue that if it hasn't gotten exponentially worse, don't think about it yet.
