    So, I'd say fuel prices have definitely increased since he's been in office.

    The dumb graph link won't copy properly. Just do a 4-year query.

    Thanks RM for posting.

    I suppose a guy could cherry-pick dates, but it certainly does look like the 'trend' is higher from when Mr. Obama took office.

    Smart move since your research keeps getting destroyed.

    It's now officially comical how some of you think the Executive Office has that much control over the price of gasoline, much less macroeconomics on a global scale.

Have you forgotten about the Tony Rezko house deal, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, or the birth certificate?

    The difference between Obama and Palin is that Obama's background withstood the scrutiny and Palin's did not. The nomination of Palin was a colossal mistake that may have cost McCain the election.

    ...really? Is the assertion REALLY that Obama's background has been insufficently researched up to this point?

I clearly remember them both - because I read about them - in the mainstream media!

    Where exactly did you live during the last few Republican administrations?

    otherwise "official" now is just a little slow to the jump....

    My point is--and was--you like to see more, and bigger, positive trends for $5 trillion....

    thanks for defining the criteria that is appropriate to measure the impact of Obama as president--namely from first day in office to right now.

    When Obama took office the market was at 805.22. Today its about 1391.57.

    That is a 57% increase.

    Well there you go then, $5 trillion well-spent.

    It's gotta hurt that the very thing the left despises, the root of all evil (after all, "Big Oil" is a driver, see link below) filled with unscrupulous victimizers who cheat and don't share well with others, is a liberal President's "accomplishment".

    But it does show American's resolve despite their handicaps.

    Keep searching!

    You can make up reasons why people aren't happy about the market being up 57%, but everyone who believes in capitalism knows that the market is a true live measure capitalism success or failures.

    whaaaaaaaaa


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Palin was fully vetted physically.

    Now stop making media fairness comparisons between Obama and Palin. It's a complete waste of time and you're on the wrong side of the argument. As Nishioka pointed out, if she had been properly vetted, she wouldn't have gotten within 500 miles of the VP nomination.

    Your time would be better served finding more photos to use in your posts.

    You do realize why the prices bottomed in '08, right?

    I hope the "trend" continues.

    If you want a link to something that's been written about by countless pundits and talked about for nearly four years, use your Google machine. You'll get a bunch of links.
