    Forget Biden, but I do blame California Democrats for high CA prices.

    Make no mistake. The Iraqi war was all about oil. You can buy the baseless narrative, and the false WMD claims, but you'd be wrong. The US attempted to write self-serving Production Sharing Agreements (PSAs), but Iraq wanted nothing to do with them. We seem to at least agree on the latter half of that statement - that Iraq wanted nothing to do with them. Once Obama got into office, and the Bakken reservoir find in North Dakota gave the US new oil, Iraq and PSAs became less important. Eventually Obama pulled us out of Iraq and WMD claims were forgotten, and the US was $6 Trillion poorer.

    Remember - GW Bush inherited a deficit surplus, with the debt starting to be reduced. GW quickly reversed that course.

    They definitely get an assist on the play. But Biden's the guy signing multi-billion dollar spending bills.

    You can claim that all you want. It doesn't make it true. I said nothing about WMD's. That's a whole different story.

    The Republicans in Congress balanced the budget and yes they did, for a short period, create a surplus until the Democrats regained control of Congress. It was actually only a surplus if you ignore SS.

    Why bring that up? That's not part of the discussion is it? It is completed unrelated to any part of the discussion.

    Biden and Trump juiced the economy by jacking up asset values--real estate, stocks--rather than take action to improve productivity.

    How exactly did they do that? excessive spending driven by Pandemic panic did most of the damage, aided by Biden's "I never saw a walsteful mantra I could resist.

    Because it's all related to the time, and the debt and irresponsibility of GW Bush was legendary. Corporate corruption was rampant. The housing crisis was predominantly the result of a lack of attention to what was happening right under their noses. They led us into the worst recession since the great depression. Two wars - the Iraqi oil war and the Afghan war. They inherited a budget surplus, and totally F'd everything up in 4 years. Your Party has a very bad track record of late. BTW, I'm a fiscally conservative independent.

    What has gas to do with home prices except they both are increasing in price, like everything else? What do homes have to do with gas prices except that people can't pay to fill the tank to get to work.
    All prices are going up... I'm a homeowner. But my heart still goes out to younger folks who may never be able to have the AMERICAN DREAM of owning a house because prices are through the roof (pun intended).

    Unless you are a homeowner.. what the heck does gas have to do with the subject?

    No you are not. If so you are a very ill-informed one.

    The housing collapse was due to the Democrats. The budget surplus was due to the Republicans. This situation we are in now is the worst.

    Trump is no rapist. HE HAS NEVER BEEN CONVICTED OF ANY CRIME IN ANY CRIMINAL COURT IN THE NATION... and that includes lying. "Scumbag: is not a criminal act. Trump urged the protesters to go home on social media... and many went. Trump did a lot for the economy... compared to Biden... lower inflation, lower gas prices, Ask a housewife what he did. She pays $137 under Biden for what she got for $100 under Trump.

    It's pages and pages of details to answer tour question. Read them for the answers. Does reading scare you?
    I have no desire to transcribe your answer when its already spelled out.

    Oh, get off it. Two of the articles are the same and the rest are behind paywalls.

    Why don't you criticize Old Joe for his part in increasing oil prices instead of propagandizing the forum with blather blaming him for everything? You say you know what you're talking about. If you do, you could educate people with the truth instead of misleading them with your usual anti-Joe screed.

    Repeat after me.

    The president has very little he can do to effect gas prices on an international market.

    Repeat after me.

    America produced more oil last year than at any point in our entire history.

    DNC = Does Not Care
    Do you realize China is over producing in the world using fossil fuels to make up the difference, and we are shrinking because we are not producing enough. Why? Because we are shoveling money into subsidized solar farms for hedge funds.
    The democrats do not care about working, legal, Americans anymore!

    Yeah, and all that Al Capone did was evade taxes. :roll: :roll:
    Lucky for Trump.
    President Tweet. :lol: :lol:
    Growth in Obama's last three years was the same as Trump's first three, so the Orange Oaf was no great leader.
    I'd rather ask an expert. BTW, I do most of the shopping because my wife and I are equals.

    Ok... you equate Trump with Al Capone. Have another toke.

    Your wife and you are equals? Do you have a vagina? Or does she have a penis?

    My wife and I are quite different. VIVA LA DIFFERENCE!!!!!

    Some good points that need developing so everyday folks can "connect the dots."

    The idiot Prime Minister of Canada, the country with 3rd largest oil reserves in the world, opposes Canada exporting LNG. Trudeau and Biden are more interested in virtue signaling than impacting climate change in ways they can sustain politically.

    How stupid are the people you're trying to impress? Trump has gotten away with it. Do you think the hapless types who went to Trump University weren't cheated? As I said, "We know he's a rapist, crook, liar and general scumbag."
    Only you and your wife know if you're equals.

    Trump was the one capitulating to China and using his office to profit from them.

    2018
    President Donald Trump's order regarding Chinese telecom company ZTE came just days after the Chinese government moved to provide cash to a venture that will help the president's bottom line.

    "President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast," Trump tweeted Sunday. "Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!"
