"DEALERS IN ALL 57 STATES" <-FUNNY!  Well he did say that he visited them all except for Alaska and Hawaii (if memory serves me correctly).

I love the style of this. This is certainly an entertaining way to learn some facts. I give it two Obama Brand Sky Rocket Motor Snake Oil cans up.

Great Use of 60's vintage Marketing for 'snake Oil'!

The president doesn’t really have any control over gas prices, and even if he could, that would violate free market principles.

The truth is that gas prices aren’t rising, the value of our dollar is merely decreasing: [link]

BlameThe1st got the Obama talking points down pat!.... yea, just keep fooling yourself. For liberals, ignorance is bliss!

It’s not a talking point, at least to me. Obama has no more control over gas prices than Bush did—which is why I find it equally hypocritical that liberals bashed Bush for high gas prices during his administration. And even if he did have control, would you want him too? What about the free market? I thought the government wasn’t supposed to intervene?

That's simply the point.... the government HAS intervened leading to higher gas prices. By blocking drilling, pipelines, and by locking up large portions of oil producing lands. I probably agree with you on a great number of things (leaning libertarian) but the federal government can influence prices. The skyrocketing prices of gas are even greater than the Carter era (which I survived!) Let's hope we have as much sense as we did then and vote the idiot out.

I have to agree with you somewhat there. In my opinion, the more likely suspect is our monetary policy. Inflation has severely devalued our dollar, forcing everyone to shell out more Washingtons in order to pay for basic necessities (i.e.: gas prices, healthcare, tuition, etc.). The easiest way to fix most of our economic problems is to fix our money. Funny how that’s not part of our political discussion these days. Hmm…

Agreed.... but politicians don't discuss what is best for the average person. They only talk about stuff that will benefit them somehow.

That's the game politicians have been playing forever: pretend to support needs of the common man, support policies that benefit him. In the end, politics is all about the big bucks, and yet people fail to see right through the charade.

The clever concept belongs to zappatrust [link] . I thank him for letting me steal it.

Sweeet. No Republicans in all 57 states.

Ha, clever. It got quite the bitter chuckle out of me... :worry:

The artwork and layout are both very nice though. :]
