As for Ben Stien he is one opinion and on Fox Cavuto show there were three others that disagreed with him on that and they also didnt have a horse in the game.
Simple there are very few times when most of congress and the presidency was controled by one party or the other. The Carter years are a good example Funny how as soon as Reagan came in (first talk about drilling in ANWAR and other areas formally off limits), the Price dropped (OPEC stopped its embargo). As for the price of oil and where it is at time to time in general there are other factors that need to be considered that is why it is to complex for you to understand those are factors your brain cant get around because you dont have the skills to be able to give weight to each of those factors and then eliminate those factors from the grand equation. Take the price of oil today because of the recession and the supply that it has caused the price of oil should be at a price that is much lower then it is today. Only a moron would think it is a huge quintessence that every time in history our government talks about going after vast amounts of oil that where off limits before, the price gos down by a big percentage and when it is killed (by mainly the democrats) the price suddenly spikes back up. Also your right because the democrats are directly responsible for the banking collapse which caused the recession there by lowering the demand so much, they are the reason for oil being this low. The problem is the way they got oil to the price it is (which by the way is still much higher then it should be, then again you need to have the gray matter to figure that out). I am sorry but I dont like their solution to high oil prices, putting the country into a recession is not the way to go. That is the proplem with you people, your short sighted. Samething that happen when the repbulican congress passed a bill to drill in ANWR and Clinton VETO it, HUMMMMMM what was it he said, thats right it was something like we would not even see the first million barrels per DAY from ANWAR for at least 8 to 10 years, hummmm what was that, thats right about 12 years ago. That was just said again by the democrats about a year ago with ANWAR and off shore drilling again (what twits along with the people that voted for them).
Now as for Cramer and Buffet they were examples. Once again you just cant get a simple analogy. Did you not see this part:
"I never said they did not say those things at best I could say that the ones I heard and that includes people like Jim Cramer and Warren Buffet (Obama supporters both) did not say that exactly."
Now I know you have trouble understanding things so I will pull words out of that quote "ones I heard and that includes" The important words here for your dumbass is "ONES" and "INCLUDES", Now that means they were not the only ones saying it or that I heard but those two are a better example because they where Obama supporters and THEY WERE SAYING HE SUCKS FOR THE ECONOMY, Point being, it was not just conservates saying it. Now if you think the president cannot have a effect on the market, you are sorely mistaken. Tax policies (by themselves) directly effect companies profits and well being. People invest in companies that are providing profits the better the profits the more investments they get there by effecting the market. Bushes steel taffifs killed many of the companies profits that use steel to make their products. When it was seen how bad it effected those companies (which were many) the market took a major down swing. Do you remember the 12,000 to 10,000 drop.
Now as for this part of your comment:
"I am noticing a pattern here. You dont seem to comment on articles that point out flaws in your arguments. Like the one I posted on the Bush administrations role in the mortgage disaster.
That article was pretty damning wasnt it?:"
It acts as a clear example of you not being able to understand or clearly read a simple comment, and why you will always be confused. This was a reply to your link dumbshit.

Hey dumbass It was not lobbying that stopped it, it was the pressure that they would look like uncaring people as the democrats always try to do. The proof is that we all know who got most of the money from FAM, and FRM and it was not the republicans. The top three out of 5 where Sen. Dodd (D), Sen. Obama (D), and Congressmen Frank (D). The other 2 where also democrats. 8 of the top 10 where democrats, you dumbass.
This is exactly why I call you a dumbshit, Hell I even put your own Quote up to show I responded to your dumbass. Unlike you, I respond each part of the comment that I have already taken issue with, weather it is a logical response or I say "that is a good point". I ether concede to something or argue it, you are the one that just leaves things out constantly.
