    NO NO NO ! you have that wrong. According to RAM it is the GOP that is killing the middle class. It is they who want higher tax's, fuel and food prices, and Cap and Trade so we can have higher energy cost's and strip workers of thier rights.

    I hope this changes! The path we are on with insane spending without producing economic fruits, socialist agendas and legislation, moratoriums on drilling, refusal to grant drilling permits, installing two liberal plants on the supreme court, refusing to enforce our immigration and "Defense of Marriage Act", unemployment out of sight, complete loss of foreign relations in the Middle East, and fuel prices breaking new records every day amid the worst recession our country has experienced since the great depression are not the changes we needed.

    Ah, I can see the correlation. The President clearly hates anyone who owns, or has ever owned, a pickup, SUV, V8, diesel of any kind. If you play his speaches backwards you can even hear his distain for apple pie.

    Rod, it's probably time for you, as a full fledged O supporter, to post up the long list of this Kenyan's accomplishments while in office with an explanation as to how each of them affects America. None of your post buddies are willing to step up.
    You, on the other hand won't hide from such an opportunity. Thanks in advance.

    Hows about a list of the Kenyan's complete failures:

    1.Stimulus bill - not a jobs bill but a democratic payback bill
    2.Refusing to prosecute the radical hate group; the Black Panthers for violations of others voting rights as well as hate crimes and inciting violence
    See this very good web post for further information:
    New Black Panther Obama DOJ refused to prosecute: “I hate white people – all of them!”
    3.Obama’s lies about the budget and constant blaming of Bush rather than taking any responsibility at all for his hand in the budget deficit and terrible economy:

    For Fiscal Year 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.

    If the Obama & the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the Fiscal Year 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.
    4.Obama and Attorney General Holder suing the Sate of Arizona over bill that only enforces US Federal Law (US code #1304; c, d, & f).
    See: Obama and Holder taking on Arizona's SB1070
    5.Obama’s ties via Eboo Patel to the radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wrote the afterward to Patel’s 2006 book entitled, “Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialog to Action.”
    Eboo Patel the is religious adviser to President Obama. Obama’s adviser says, “America is the ideal place for a renewal of Islam”.

    See:
    *Barack Obama’s ‘Religious’ Adviser, Eboo Patel, is closely linked to the radical imam seeking to build the Ground Zero mosque
    *Obama religion adviser closely tied to ‘Ground Zero’ imam. Boasted of America as ‘ideal place for renewal of Islam’
    6.Extreme political correctness and inability to call Islamic Extremists and the tenants of Islam which they follow for what it is;
    An extreme religion of hate and intolerance:
    No Mosque at Ground Zero
    7.Lack of proper vetting
    8.Tax cheats in his administration; Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and many others
    9.Socialist in his administration;
    Here are just a few:
    Carol Browner (Energy Czar/Director), Rosa Brooks (Senior adviser to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Michele Flournoy), Ron Bloom (Manufacturing Czar).

    Reference:
    Obama File 87 Obama's Socialist Appointees-Where is the Spotlight?

    10.Allowing radical racist communist in his administration - Van Jones; Special Adviser for Green Jobs in the Obama administration (Former now)
    This guy is so far out there that he signed his name to 911Truth.org which is a group that does not believe the accepted, proven, and established accounts of 9/11/01, this is a kin to denying the Holocaust, claiming the Earth is flat (there are those that still believe this), believe the Moon landings were fake, etc, ect.
    Reference (one of many);
    Wikipedia; Van Jones
    11.Shutting down of the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico, along with his mishandling of the BP Oil Spill including turning down real help from the Dutch for Oil Spill Help; Obama says “Thanks, but no thanks”
    (see: Dutch Offered Oil Spill Help)
    Also with an economy that needs low oil prices for complete recovery, Obama continues to lock up viable oil reserves in the US.

    Sadly energy policy has been a failure of many presidents, including Bush. We need a leader to stand up to the communist environmental movement before it is too late (all the while China drills for oil just outside our waters and Canada does not have any of the issues with drilling that we have in Alaska)
    12.No Olympics for Chicago - turned out to be a big ego trip instead
    13.Making race relations worse - (stupidly comment- professor gates)
    14.Fly over photo op in New York - scared New Yorkers
    15.Selling out other nations by removing missile defense
    16.Letting Pelosi and Reid write bills
    17.Lack of transparency
    18.Multiple czars with no accountability
    19.Lying about details of his health-care reform bill - YOU LIE!!!
    20.Attempt to take over census
    21.Undecided about giving military what they need to win
    22.Association with acorn
    23.Worldwide apology tour (this borders on treason IMHO)
    24.Willing to bend over to our enemies while giving our allies the shaft
    25.Lack of support for Israel.
    While I, nor others advocate blanket support for everything Israel does, it does not take a genius to figure out the Israel is the strongest democracy in the region and our best ally in the region as well.
    One could also cite Genesis 12:2-3 for supporting Israel, although their admittedly is controversy as to the correct interpretation of these verses, I personally think it is clear from reading the Bible in context (not just the literal Hebrew of these verses) that the Nation of Israel is being spoken of via Abraham's descendants through Jacob, NOT Ishmael (see: "I will make you into a great nation")
    26.Took too long to speak out against violence against voters in Iran
    27.Getting the NEA to produce propaganda art for his agenda
    28.Firing inspector general for investigating his friends at americorp
    29.Shutting down voucher program in DC for poor school kids
    30.Firing the head of General Motors, this is not the job of the President to fire corporate heads no matter how bad they might be
    31.Lied about putting bills on-line for 5 days
    32.Allowing unions large share in businesses taken over by government
    33.Intimidating businessmen (I'm only thing standing between you and the pitch forks)
    34.Allowing his administration to threaten shareholders during bankruptcy of car dealers
    35.Extreme Anti small business & anti-family views/policies; remember Joe the Plumber?
    As well as a small businessman that struggles for every dollar, often working 80 hours per week I have already seen my taxes increase. As well Obama has lowered the child tax credit from $1000 to $500; how family friendly is that?
    36.Raised the deficit 3 times the amount it was last year
    37.Bailout of Fannie and Freddie
    38.Will not be able to repay tarp money to taxpayers as promised
    39.General Motors take over - GM had to eventually declare bankruptcy
    40.Devaluing the dollar all over the world because of massive debt & spending
    41.Class warfare uproar over AIG bonuses but silent about bonuses for his pals at for Fanny & Freddie
    42.Spending more than any president in history
    43.And of coarse the failure of the American Electorate to actually vote for such a fool:
    The best things in life aren't things!

    not bad.
    I seem to recall a couple price spikes in oil and gas from 2004-2008. I also seem to recall gas was $1/gal under Clinton. Tough to blame Obama in this particular case,
    EDIT: the chart in the OP
    plenty of other stuff to blame him for.
