Barack Obama - #3688 -10 Ways Obama Could Reduce Gasoline Prices Now - Redstate (2) Rasmussen Poll: Obama Approval at 45%, Lowest in Month, Falls Behind Romney, Paul ..... (3) VIDEO: Obama Plays Race Card, Calls on Churches to Support Campaign - Prison Planet

The main thing holding domestic energy companies back from making a stronger commitment to future domestic supplies is uncertainty. Capital hates uncertainty, avoids it like the plague. Your rhetoric may appease your doctrinaire base, but it makes domestic energy producers hold back, fearful that you will punish their success, or that you will change the rules on them in the middle of the game. Erasing uncertainty is the #1 thing you can do as a national leader if you truly desire to lower gasoline prices. Not only could it change the psychology of energy investing, there is still time for companies to change their 2012 investment plans. Below the fold is my humble 10-point plan: Things President Obama could (but won’t) do to reduce domestic gasoline prices by November 2012. 1. Commit to a strategic goal of North American energy security. That includes reasonable and responsible domestic drilling. That includes taking the lead on the Keystone XL Pipeline; we could find a way to make it happen while addressing the legitimate environmental concerns of Nebraskans. It includes a commitment to maintaining the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System and opening ANWR. 2. Ditch the anti-industry, anti-capitalist rhetoric.  3.  Stop targeting the oil industry for punitive tax treatment. 4.  Realize that Uncle Sam is in the energy business and is a partner in industry's success 5.  Recognize that industry does not need to be led by government: industry needs to be unleashed and encouraged to innovate.  Read 6-10......

Rasmussen Poll: Obama Approval at 45%, Lowest in Month - Falls Behind Romney, Paul........The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16 (see trends). That’s the president’s lowest rating in over a month.  Matchups between President Obama and GOP hopefuls shift along with the president’s Job Approval ratings. As a result, with the president’s overall approval ratings down six points since Valentine’s Day, the general election polling is looking weaker for the incumbent. It remains to be seen, of course, if this is merely statistical noise or a lasting change signaling that the president’s recent bounce in the polls has come to an end.  For the first time since late December 2011, Mitt Romney leads the president in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. Romney earns 45% of the vote, while the president attracts support from 43%.   Read more.........


Obama Plays Race Card, Calls on Churches to Support Campaign - Prison Planet - This clip has been viewed 1,072,938 times. Imagine if Ron Paul announced a national campaign called ‘Whites for Ron Paul’ – he’d be vilified as a racist. And yet Barack Obama has done the equivalent of precisely that with his launch of ‘African Americans for Obama’. The program urges black Americans to volunteer their time by making calls, organizing events and going door to door in their neighborhoods encouraging other African Americans to vote for Obama.  Not only is Obama playing the race card in an attempt to pressure black Americans into voting for him, he is also violating the separation between church and state. In the video promo for the campaign, Obama urges black people to pressure churches into supporting his administration by getting his message out via “the faith community”. He also calls on voters to become “congregation captains”.  Read more....... AW: It was all I could do to watch this clip to the end, but we must be aware of the tactics he is using. In my opinion, he is wrong on one main point, he was elected in the first place, because of grossly misinformed voters.
