@one vote,

How have oil companies suffered under Obama?

Gas prices have been higher the whole Obama Presidency than they EVER were under Bush!

When gas prices go up during Bush... it was Bush getting bigger profits for his big-oil-buddies. Despite American refineries shutdown by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Ike, and oil supply disruptions from unrest in the Middle East.

No... It's just Bush helping his big-oil-buddies if prices go up when he is President. But when they go up EVEN MORE when Obama is President... Obama gets a pass.

When Bush is President and gas prices go up... it's Bush's fault.
When Obama is President and gas prices go up... it's... Uuuummm... it's... BUSH'S FAULT!

NEVER Obama helping HIS big-oil-buddies (who contributed millions to his campaign BTW. Google "Obama biggest recipient of BP cash" or "Exxon, Chevron, BP Greased Obama's Campaign" or "Big Oil Helps Bankroll Obama Inaugural")...

But NO... President is only to blame when a Republican is in office... not a Democrat.

You realize gas prices have been higher the whole Obama Presidency than they EVER were under Bush... Right??

I hate it when you constantly lie about easily proven facts,
and we have to constatnly publically call you on it!

I think Monsanto is doing great with Ethanol. I would think that cars being disposed of because of it. I think the his energy plan is to make people poorer.
