Does this guy actually his own B.S. that flows from his lips? According to him, everything is out of his control. He's running around like Curly of the Three Stooges yelling "I'm a victim of circumstance!" Even the oil prices he says he has no control over! This after decimating oil drilling in the gulf with his moratorium, his refusal to drill in ANWR, or off the west coast, or off the east coast, and to go after coal companies, and letting the EPA run wld on the energy industry in general. Noooo, nothing to do with it. He's friggin' Pontius Pilate, washing his hands clean of every energy killing, job killing, and spirit killing policy he's put in place since he took office.
But all is well in Obamaland - he's got a $35,800 per couple birthday bash to give himself. Cake anyone?
