Oil Prices Soar to Highest Price Since 2008 on Obama’s Libya War … Up 100% Under Obama
Welcome to Obama’s QUAGMIRE …
It is amateur hour in the White House and “We the People” are feeling the brunt of the inexperience. Obama truly is the worst President ever.
Thanks to Barack Obama’s
“Kinetic Military Operation” WAR in Libya oil prices have climbed to their highest level since 2008. Obama claimed that the military operation in Libya would last days not weeks. The community organizer and “Ditherer” in Chief could never have been so wrong. Who but an inexperienced and completed over-matched individual could ever have thought that a any military action would have ended so quickly.
Instead of a quick outcome and slam dunk in Libya as stated by Obama, fighters loyal to Moammar Gadhafi pushed back rebels from key areas in eastern Libya and have dealt the rebels a severe setback. Today, a spokesman for the Libyan leader said that Gaddafi will stay in Libya “until the end”. The result … oil prices rose to a 30 month high and the pain at the gas pumps will be felt by American workers trying to get to work. More ‘Hope & Change’ from Obama … rising gas prices.
Battles between Gadhafi’s troops and rebels have seesawed back and forth in Libyan ports and towns since mid-February, with the price of oil rising more than $20 a barrel since then. Energy consultants Cameron Hanover said traders are beginning to view the Libya uprising as a standoff for now. ‘Without control of the air, Gadhafi’s troops have been unable to hammer home their gains. And, without strong and well-trained ground forces, the rebels seem incapable of holding onto their gains. Optimism that Libyan oil might return to the market, seen earlier this week, was dashed.”
Libya’s oil exports, which went mainly to Europe, are shut down. The rebels have said they plan to start shipping oil again, although how soon that could happen is unclear.
As per ABC News, the weekly national average gas price showed the highest price ever during the month of March and the seventh consecutive increase this week,
Under President Barack Obama, oil prices have doubled and are up 100%. THANKS BARACK. Not only has this President been a complete incompetent failure in creating a $787 billion stimulus plan that created no jobs, added a ridiculous amount to the federal debt with Obamacare and has hampered job creation by an over-reaching and over-regulative government … the “Not Ready for Prime Time” President has not got the US into a hornet’s nest in Libya as oil prices skyrocket.
According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA.
Who would ever have thought that during the 2008 Democrat primaries in the run up to the 2008 Presidential election that Joe Biden would have been the sage of sages and stated the following regarding the rank amateur Barack Obama. Watch VIDEO.
Biden said that Obama was not ready for the job and the Presidency is not one that lends itself to on the job training. Biden’s reply, “I stand by that statement”. Looks like Joe was 100% correct. However, as we are reminded by the Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, Peggy was wrong. Obama was not going to pay for our gas, he doubled it instead. I wonder what peggy has to say for herself today? Sadly, the Kool-Aide drinking Obamaite would blame it still on George W. Bush.

I have one slight correction on one statement:
“The White House has said the U.S. military involvement in Libya would last days not weeks.”
It was just the “US military involvement”, not the entire “military operation”.
SM: And the US is still involved in Libya aren’t they. So like I said, days not weeks eh? Obama, what a military man. The fool should not even be allowed to play ‘Battleship’ or ‘Stratego’.
mccain/palin sound better with each passing day. and we wouldn’t have to put up with listening to him lie with durn near every breath.
Resident Obozo directs firing of 120 Cruise missiles into Libya without even consulting congress and WH says that is not an act of war…Duh .. Impeach.. We have zero reason to be there, U.N. made Obozo and the hilderbeast do it NOT …. Wonder if the limp stick would consider shooting 120 missles into China/Russia as not an act of war and expect no declaration of war in response. Easy for Obozo to attack those countries that can’t fight us back… think they call those bullies .. Bet a coke that when the smoke clears Gaddifi will still be there.
yeah, its not like he landed on a carrier throwing a big party after which the dying of US troops really started…..
and how is it Obama’s fault that the Libyan ppl rose up against Kadhaffi?
SM: WHAT? No, instead he acted “stupidly” and got the US involved in a civil war in Libya that the rebels now appear to be losing. Nice job Obama, you succeeded just as well as bringing the Olympics to the US.
Now Obama cant wait to get out of his own war. America, wake up … this president is a wet behind the ears novice who had no business being elected president.
Love the pic of Barack on the Scooter…LMAO
CLASSIC !!! =)
he is a bafoon, along with his ilk. get rid of him
we just let him slaughter away?
(personally I think the EU should have stepped in before the US)
Be thankful that at least he did something, damn bureaucrats in Brussel would still be talking
DOLF: obama is now the present supposed leader of this country. everything that happens in this country now is his responsibility. you guys condemn Bush but kiss obama’s butt like you don’t have a brain and have to be led by the balls by some fool who doensn’t even know how many states there are in this country.
he’s a poor choice, plain and simple, he doesn’t have the guts to accept responsibility and would run to play at golf in the time of crisis.
I think ROTFLMAO is really “Steve” the Moonbat ghosting on SM.
Give it up, Libtards.
obama, and the dems in congress are importing ll million barrels a day from other countries. at $l00 dollars a barrel, that totals $40l.6 billion dollars a year sucked out of our economy needlessly, and never to be seen again. obama lies through his teeth every time he speaks of developing domestic supplies, and is surreptiously working through his minions to wreck forever our domestic production facilities.
just think what effect that $400 billion a year would do for the economy as it cerculated and recirculated through the economy, instead of giving it away to foreign countries.
Dolf you are complete and utter moron.
Bush has said as much that was a mistake; but so what? He showed Bravado and that he actually cares about our US soliders.
Are you that damn stupid to not realize that Obama is the reason why the Libyan’s are protesting…but morons like you have a short memory…During the Egypt unrest he told them to “rise.” Why did he get involved in the Egypt mess and Libya’s but NOT Iran’s when they were protesting and marching in the streets?
This message was heard all over the Middle East which is why its spreading to other countries like Syria and Yemen.
Clean Obama’s jizz off your face!
He said there were not boots on the ground, but how do you think they got the coordinates for their missles he lobbed from airplanes and ships?
If there aren’t any boots on the ground, why are the marines from Camp Lejuene being called to the Libyan coast?
I could go on and on about how this has been a plan of the administration for a while. This “kinetic” war is funded by Soros.
Who do you thinks funds NATO this most?
YEP..the U.S., so in fact it is OUR war.
It’s amazing how the MSM and libtards just ignore this crap….
Dolf…you’re a tool!
Good lord. You wanted intervention in Iran (“With all this civil unrest by the Iranian People, I think we need to ask where is America’s help in this matter.” 12/28/09) but now all of a sudden don’t want it in Libya?
Illustrates perfectly why no matter what President Obama does, the racist extreme Right will always demand the opposite, even if that means contradicting the criticisms they had only hours before.
But hey, you got that cyber begging/internet panhandling (“Support Scared Monkeys! make a donation.”) going for ya. Lol…pathetic.
“This “kinetic” war is funded by Soros.”
The stupid is strong in this one.
Let me help you out #11, since you are a lazy gov’t worker (at least that’s what “we the people” and this website thinks):
- The Marine Expeditionary Unit, the 26th, deployed in 2010, well before the Libyan Crisis. That’s what MEU’s do. They deploy on ships to serve as our quick response force. We did not deploy them specifically for Libya. They just happened to already be deployed on the USS Kearsarge, and we sent them there so we can have a quick response force in case something goes wrong (i.e. the pilots crashing)
- The United States does not have a single Marine on the ground. We have them on ships, but not on the ground.
- The 22nd MEU is replacing the 26th, which is coming to the end of their deployment.
Now give us some more of that “inside” bullsh$t again #11…it’s always entertaining, especially knowing you’re actually in your momma’s basement typing away naked while surfing child porn. Tool.
Where do you get YOUR FACTS?
Is there one thing in Scott’s post that is, in fact, innacurate?
And, let me ask you this—-why do you collectively describe all of us on this blog as “Racist Extreme Right Wingers”?
You LIBTARDS always pull out the race card. Give me, and tell me ONE GOOD REASON WHY:
Barack Obama is qualified to be our President.
Barack Obama, the CHOSEN ONE, the one awarded the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, has chosen to enter the US in the Libyan’s Civil War?
The United States cannot save every Third World Nation. Weren’t you one of the original ones bitching and complaining after 9/11 that Bush/Cheney made a huge mistake in Iraq/Iran? By the way, Osama Bin Laden is still hiding out in Pakistan. Terrorism is real, still exists, and always exists. So do you believe, based upon his performance so far—that President Obama has made good choices when it comes to Foriegn Policy ?
Answer those questions Yoyo, and cut the BS.
The STUPID is STRONG with YOU—because you refuse to face what is right in front of your face. The reality is, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with your Political Party of CHOICE, it has to do with common sense, experience, and our Nation’s choice of a SOCIALIST Leader who is incapable of making the correct decisions for your Country and Mine,
I would tell you to get your head out of your arse, but it will remain there permanently it seems. There is also another word to describe your status: IGNORANT
Morning, SM—can you pls check spam folder for missing post?
Thx—Have a great weekend
SM: Got it,
YoYo alleges- The United States does not have a single Marine on the ground. We have them on ships, but not on the ground.
BULLSHIT METER: You are so wrong it’s not even funny. Would you like me to print for you the names of Marines, that are in fact, deployed WITH BOOTS ON THE GROUND. There are thousands of them, you DUMB ASS. Including my Nephew and a Neighbors Son. Time to call Vanna White and have her send you some vowels and constenants—perhaps then you would get an effin CLUE!!!!!!!!!!!
OOps….last rescue mission for one more in the spam folder.
thousants of them deployed in Libya?
Dolf- Nooooo…but Hundreds of Thousands still deployed and Obama told us we were withdrawing from Afghanistan—-he promised to end the War—remember?
There are some troops deployed in Libya and over $600 million in aid of AMERICAN DOLLARS already sent. Why? For what? NOT OUR PROBLEM!
Please re-read Scott’s post and perhaps it will finally sink in.
BTW, YoYo is a flaming Libtard. He talks some serious sh*t, and never responds when asked direct questions- so just ignore his lame ass.
Meanwhile, back in the Netherlands—how is everyone these days feeling about the Murderer Joran Van Der Sloot? Off topic, I know—but wonder if all your liberty and freedom is really worth it over there in Amsterdam? Beautiful place to visit, but I am sorry Dolf—I would never want to live there. Aren’t you embarrassed when walking with your children down some of the streets littered with Sex Dens, Live Shows and countless Shops to purchase 420? Ugh.
One more thing: YoYo claims we only have Service Members deployed in Libya on Ships.
What is the DIFFERENCE, YOYO? Point being = they are there and THEY SHOULD’NT BE.
You can thank our clueless Commander in Chief for that one. Repeat:
C L U E L E S S
Nobel Peace Prize? LMAO—Again, it is awarded by Europeans so no wonder. Duh. I could name at least 5 more worthy recipients more deserving of that reward than O-Bomb-A
We are all happy he is in jail and don’t think he is comming back (those lynchmobs freaked him out the last time )
Its ok, NGBoston, I wouldn’t want to live in a city where I feel its safer to carry a gun.
Here in Adam you can walk on the street 24/7 and be safe. Also in the Red Light district (where the sexshops and hookers are)
But yes, think Amsterdam (no.13 of worldcities most pleasant to live in 2010) is a bad place.
and you shouldn’t support scott, that guy is totaly clueless, at least you seem to think for yourself.
@20 Isn’t it standard procedure to have those men on those ships?
