Crying over Obama, oil

I am in awe of the accomplishments listed for President Barack Obama on increasing the domestic oil supply. Because he did all this great stuff, that means that the price increases are all the fault of speculators, right?

Whatever happened to the task force on oil speculation, which refers to yet another promise issued in the face of falling approval ratings with probably no intention of keeping it. I realize that The Star is in full Obama campaign mode, but for crying out loud, this came from your parent newspaper company.

And as far as the continuing insistence that none of the Republican solutions would have any immediate effect, that may be true. But for sure if they are “nonstarters” they will be nonfinishers, and we will still be crying the blues in four more years if Obama is re-elected.
