so untruthful, full of lies, that WCTRIB wouldn’t even let us read it (try to do so). This was put out by President BHO, t he DNC and DFLer Senate leader (Majority kingdom) Harry R. and got into the NEWS here in Mn. by DFLer Gov Dayton. Headlines even tell us no jobs, the lose of many homes, higher unemployment, underemployment, high gas prices ever in our History etc, . BHO pays a premium price to get this campaign baloney out. He is not fooling anyone, except a few LOCALS

‘carl’, I’m sure all the ‘locals’ are very appreciative of you opinion of their intelligence.
And, I’m sure that they all can see through your misconceptions.
That’s right, misconceptions, since I’m sure you wouldn’t out and out tell LIES, now would you, ‘carl’?
(other than your name, zipcode, and anything else?)

Carl – I can picture you with your fingers in your ears and saying “Lalalalala” any time you hear a truth you don’t like. Thanks for the chuckle!

The current level is significantly below the 90 reading that indicates a healthy economy.
The article states that in March confidence was lower then Feb and that the number first anounced has been reduced for March.
They “estimate” it will be 70% in April. If they couldn’t get the actual correct in March why are we expected to believe that the “estimate” for April is any good?
Three times as many jobs are being lost as there are being added, how can anyone seriously consder that to be a positive?
The article leads with the premise that things are getting better but the article itself does not support that premise. I guess it makes headline readers feel better but people who actually read the article leave with the knowledge that things are getting worse, not better.

BTW Gas prices are still double what they were when Dear Leader Obama took office.

Haven’t seen $8 a gallon anywhere around here, elton. Matter of fact, I filled up last Thursday at $3.54 a gallon.
Oh, yeah. I get the eight bucks a gallon, since it was $4.09 during the last month of GWB’s conspiracy.

Another ignorant uninformed comment by bac the ignorant. Gas was in the $1.80 range when Obama took office. Simple math shows that 1.80 + 1.80 equals 3.60.
Or haven’t you learned that yet bac?
Average gas prices:
$1.84 Jan of 2009.
$3.92 March 2012
Guess I was wrong, gas prices have more then double under Obama.

Once again when indisputable facts are posted the liberal left disappears from the topic.

Whats a matter bac, afraid to show your face? No comebacks, no witty grade school comments?
You lack of a response is an admission of another defeat bac.

I don’t know how the numbers you are getting were figured, Elton – but let’s at least work with the weekly numbers from the EIA, shall we?
As you can see, Bush actually has had the highest per gallon price, under his aministration (June/July of 2008). However – I, personally, don’t blame Bush or Obama or any president for gas prices. I realize that the blame lies with oil companies and distributers – the people who actually set the prices.

So – is it that people don’t like data, or that poeple just don’t like me? (I’m sure it’s the data……… we’ve established how charming I am so……. 😉 )
Just the trolls, Breezy, just the trolls.

Speculators have much to do with the falling and rising of gas prices. No matter who the president is, he will take credit for the falling price.

So no comment on my fact? I posted factual data and bac denied that it was true. Hey, your not his mommy are you? If so he seems to get grouchy in the evening so could you please get him in his jammies and in bed before 8:PM? Thanks, I am sure his teachers will appreciate it.
Sure Bush had the highest price per gallon, what does that have to do with what I said? The price of oil has double since he took office, how about we start with that BB?

How is it possible to assign blame to one single man, and yet reject the idea of assigning the same blame to another?
You can’t have it both ways, darling.

Have you noticed Obama has over seen the highest average price per gallon during his time in office?
Did you notice when President Bush was in office that liberals were blaming the “oil men in the White House” for the price of gas? Or are you just ignoring that fact?
I hold Obama reponsible for the price of gas, higher then promised unemployment, doubling the entire national debt in his first three years, soldiers fighting Obama’s war in Afganistan (how many more need to die?) and poor leadership here and around the world.
Frankly, Obama sucks.

Hey, hunny bunny – I simply posted a link to some broad reaching data. (Note that pun, muffin?)
Data, babe – just data.
I assigned NO blame, and did not refute your personal assigning of blame – I simply posted data.
How can you get so riled up over data?
Just breathe, sweetheart… breathe…

Breezy Belle, might want to explain what data you have posted a link to. The heading of the information is “Weekly U.S. Regular All Formulations Retail Gasoline Prices (Dollars per Gallon)”
Note the use of data designation “All Formulations”. There are three basic grades of gasoline – regular, regular plus, and premium. From there you have other formulations containing various levels of ethanol which some states have mandated . Each one has a price level but the study has combined them into one price. Example, Regular, $1.84, Regular plus, $1,94, Premium $2.14, you have an All Formulation price of $1.97. The All Formulation price data may confuse people because most only see the three grade prices posted at the pump.
But good information anyway.

I appreciate that you actually took a look at the data, Bob – thanks!
At the bottom of that page, there are links to more specifc data, broken down by gas type. If you click on the first link (retail prices for regular gasoline) it takes you to another breakdown chart, and that can be cued/sorted to provide numbers for different types of gas (including diesel), and it can show the history of prices, even as far back as 1992 – can even view info specific to states and cities.
It’s interesting information, especially if some time is taken to play around with the filters…

Breezy Belle, one has to remember some people just read the headlines never taking the time to go into the detail of what data or information supports the headlines. I would further state some people never look at both detail and definition of the information, they would rather just look at who posted in making an opinion decision.

It really is amazing of how many people can find data to support a post they make. It is like comparing apples to oranges using kumquat data from an Orange and grapefruit data source.

Not so amazing. You’ve been doing it for quite some time, now.
Although I do find it interesting how you came up with all that fruit to make your point with.

bac, I have challenged you on several occasions to prove my data incorrect or false and I have yet to see one item or occasion where you have done so. Smart comments? – yes, proof? – still waiting.
With regards to the fruit comment, one has to shape the remarks to the audience or person who takes the bait. Gotcha. :<)
