Yes, when we have a new President instead of the One we have now.

Might I suggest you read the US Constitution, Article 2. I am not defending or putting down the president we have now, but I think too often the general public is misinformed as to exactly what the duties of the office are. I didn't see a thing in the Constitution about him raising or lowering prices. I think you need to stop watching Fox News and start reading REAL facts and then making an informed decision. I feel this world is made up of too many lemmings going over the mountaintop and falling in to the ocean because they believe what they read or hear someone say in the line in front of them at the grocery store or hear it on some TV newscast. I am an independent, neither a Democrat or a Republican and would never ever become affiliated with either party. It took more than one man to get us in the mess we are in and it will take more than one to get us out this mess.

I was gonna comment earlier, "When the conservatives r running the country, the economy will pick up, but I doubt prices will ever go back down." do they ever? and to agirl... so many small business r scared of the current administration & all the taxes they want to impose on them so businesses are hoarding away any money they have (if any), however, as soon and Obama is outta here, small businesses will once again hire workers and invest in their own businesses.

The economy will only pick up when people realize that Obama is not leading us to the Promised Land.

Obama has done more damage than any other President in US history. The harm may be irrepairable.

U can't be serious! No one has ruined this country more than BUSH! Just because you don't like a black man being in office doesn't mean you have to blame him for everthing that happens. You can't possible blame him for prices going up or you really need a reality check.

Bottom line is Obama has done nothing to improve our country. He's only made it worse. Our problem started when your beloved Bill Clinton signed the nafta deal.

It has NOTHING to do with the fact that he is black. Get over that argument.

Why do you all have to be such hate mongers? agirl_25 is offering her opinion and just because it does not match yours does not make it any less relevant nor does it automatically make her a Democrat or a Socialist or even a Republican. Saying anything about her "guvment check" is degrading to her: AND MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE AN ASS!
Some of you are just hateful and a disgrace to this town.
And for the record... if you are going to use big words, please learn how to spell them. INDEPENDENT <--- all E's.. no A's.. IRREPARABLE <--- no I.

You know the acronym for One Big Ass Mistake America? OBAMA! Taxes have increased (no new taxes) the war still lingers (I will have all american troops home with in 18 months of my taking office) the economy is ruined, and I trully think that OPEC is punishing us with higher oil prices for Obama. Jimmy Carter was a bad president, Obama is exceeding him. I have never seen a sitting president, from Eisenhower to Bush, spend so much time on TV instead of leading. Talks shows, comedy roasts, cameos in movies, come on. You can lead or you can play at leading. Obama is a good actor, but would not win any awards for playing this role. As a sitting President he is the Alfred E Newmen 'What? Me Worry. His wife has a personal staff costing the taxpayers several million dollars a year, spends hundreds of thousand on vacations and then says we need to do more. Vacations should be done after you work, not when the US is at war, the economy in trashed, and nations want to destroy us. Obama is never home working for the nation, he is working for Obama.

It's a free country and in case you have forgotten...in this country you can speak your mind. People have spoken out against every president we have had and Obumma should be no exception.
