    We know the economy is improving.  But out-of-control oil prices can quickly sink the whole thing.  For the sake of our economy and his political future, Obama needs to concentrate on oil prices and keep trudging forward with conservation and alternative energy.

      is straight up rw talking points. The price around here have risen about 10-15%, so no hair on fire problem. Not even close. So we all should reconsider feeding this meme. Could it happen? Sure. Lots could happen.

      And this President has already asked the question of the gop candidates: What can a President actually do to immediately affect oil prices? Very little actually.

    •  Take a page from the Rove playbook. (0+ / 0-)

      Attack them on their strengths (e.g., Romney's "business experience") and reframe the arguments relating to your own weaknesses (i.e., use less oil instead of pay less for oil).  Rove might be a devil, but he's a smart devil.
