"...president (Obama)..quadrupled gas prices...." According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average price for regular gas was $2.40/gal on election day 2008 and $1.85 on Inauguration day 2009. On election day 2012 gas averaged $3.49/gallon. The highest average price in US history was $4.11 in July 2011. The last time gas was $1.03/gallon (1/4 of $4.11) was in May 1999 (Barack Obama was a state senator in Illinois). Even adjusted for inflation, the average price of gasoline has NEVER quadupled (1919-2011). Why bother reading the rest of Ms. Coulter's drivel?

Correction...
The highest gas price in US history was $4.11/gallon in July 2008. The highest during the Obama Presidency was $3.96/gallon in July 2011. My apologies.

Ugh...that would be $3.96 in MAY of 2011.

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
