    ... actually achievable! Yes gas now is higher than it should be all thanks to Obama's energy policy. Changing that policy would result in cheaper energy for America and a step toward kick starting the economy!

      The price of gas in America lags far behind its European counterparts.

        And, there's a reason for that.

    Bachmann is lying. It's a pledge that which couldn't be fulfilled.

    The fear of rising gas prices and gas prices where they are presently, is what Bachmann is playing on, because 80% of the citizens in the country haven't a clue about what it truly takes to understand why gas prices are where they are presently.

    Bachmann is just playing to the uneducated/gullible.

      Well, it could be fulfilled, but only if we go into another deep worldwide recession like 2008. Which certainly is a possibility if Americans are dumb enough to elect an idiot like Bachmann, but not exactly the one she had in mind. I hope.

        Not true.

    Obviously, libs don't know how to read because if they did, they would know why gas prices are what they are now and how they could be lower and how Bachmann could achieve that goal.

        You're calling liberals idiots, yet you spout off from the other side of the aisle? And, what makes you any different than liberals?

        Control much?

          the facts....Obama  created zero jobs last month and we still have a 9.1% unemployment rate yet he added 4 trillion to the debt with his wonderful plans....and new job killing regulations

            roll

            Only idiots believe that the government can actually create jobs. It can create funding for projects through private sector industry, but that doesn't necessarily create jobs.

            It only prints money and gives money to the already wealthy.

      We've got more working rigs right now than any time since the 80's and are producing more domestic oil than we have in almost a decade, yet gas prices remain high.

      The high oil prices are not a supply problem, dear. They're a demand problem.

    Very interesting. It was under Bush that gas sky rocketed.. Must have been a master plan implemented by then Senator Obama to ensure victory in the upcoming election.

    Bachmann isn't fooling anyone, with the exception of those who desperately want to be fooled.

        Well, if you are saying they are tit for tat, I'll agree with you. It's the system, not the man that needs to change. Bachmann is playing the system.

    @cags I agree with you about government not creating jobs.  But government doesn't create money.  The FED does

      Correct. The FED loans money, which the government has to borrow. However, the basis remains true.
