    People dont see that the rising energy price are there to force us to rethink about innovating newer green technology that does not rely on gas, coal or oil. Republicans like dirty polluting energy. Republicans also seen to have amnesia or denial when it comes to BUSH. His speech and rhetoric is a little dry though and his stance is too passive, it allows the republicans to walk all over him and attack him on every issue he presents.

    If he would just stop supporting the failed "green policies" that are driving energy prices up which will cause higher prices in everything else and handing out food stamps and unemployed left and right that is only hurting the country he would be OK.
