    Today the President will be visiting Oyster River High School. The trip will take several hours, helicopters, Air Force 1, limousines, Secret Service, advance teams not to mention secret Service call girls, teleprompter and Bo the dog's private jet.

    Why not teleconference? I am sure that each of the students know how to use an ipad and Skype. Why doesn't the president know about this simple everyday technology? Maybe his ego is so large that it can not fit across the internet.

    Or maybe he uses gotomeetings to talk to his girls. "Honey, I sent you 3 mod-icons. Kiss, kiss, click, click. " He is such a good father.

    Liberals are quick to say that President Bush did the same thing. Good, use the one person you hate more than Hitler to justify your guys behavior. Remember, Obama was pushed as the most technologically advanced president of all times. I guess that was just another liberal hope and dream.

      @ Jay...learn some history, not just Bush, but all past president's have visited the citizens of this country and listened to their concens. This is the president's job. So quit your whining...or is that and ingrained teabagger trait? Don't you remember all the signs stating "Washington slept here"?

      Now, on to other current news. I ask why you have no comments on how fast gasoline prices are falling? Locally $3.29 per gal this morning, and CNN is reporting it could be under $3 in a couple of weeks....I want to know why you are not giving credit where credit is due?

        Jean- Saudi Arabia gets the credit- increased production- and American refineries coming back on line after routine spring maintenance. Also- fracking producing more oil and gas. The President says- " we can't drill our way to lower prices". Those of us who have gas leases know that is untrue- price per 1000 cu ft has fallen by 2/3 in the last year due to fracking. He should stick to being cool. It is his best attribute.

        Jean, Gas prices – really? Either way Obama loses. If he does have control, prices are much higher than when Bush was in office. If he doesn't, and we know he doesn't. Why are you bringing it up?

        @John Wrong again! The highest National Average Price Per Gallon was $4.28 a gallon was on July 7, 2008.
        One more time who was President in 2008>>>>>Bush!

        jean, why are you giving credit where NONE is due? Please tell the class specifically what the Masai-of-the-Liberal-world did to lower gas prices? Was this due to one of his famous executive orders?

        Visiting campaign events is not the job of the President. The truth is he took half the day off to raise money for himself. It is obvious that the only job he cares about is his own.

        @Jay and you don't think the fact that the U.S. and Iran are in negotiations, or that the President arranged to have some of oil rich African nations like Nigeria invited to the G-8 summit didn't have anything to do with gas prices dropping?

        Where is credit due? I didn't blame anyone when gas went up so who the "H" am I supposed to credit for its fall...Adam Smith, perhaps. Oil is a commodity and ebbs and flows like all commodies ruled by the law of supply and demand. If there is any credit due it is to a temporary over supply of petroleum due to a slowing economy.

      • jean2009

        Folks there is a difference between natural gas prices and gasoline prices...I think we all know I was discussing gasoline which we certainly don't acquired by fracking.

        Richard I agree. Presidents rarely have an impact on the price of fuel, and I didn't blame President Bush (athough fighting a war in the Persian Gulf wasn't exactly conducive to a lower price for light crude) Every day or two we have knuckleheads Jerry, John and others whining about how it's President Obama's fault the price of fuel (gasoline) is too high. I thought I would remind them that the price is coming down.
        FYI: I would also say taking many factors into account....inviting African oil producing countries to the G-8 Summit, and negotiations with Iran would have a calming effect on those who speculate on oil futures....i.e. what the market expects will happen in regards to supply and demand.

        You should look at who was consulting with the Saudi's for more production, may I say Schummer and the President.

      • jean2009

        Also we currently import more crude oil from Africa than we do from Saudi Arabia....this from a June report.

      Of course, if he were to skype a town hall meeting as you suggested, you or others on the right, would call him elitist and criticize him for not caring enough to even visit in person as every other President had done.

      Jay, what is your problem? You have issues nothing to do with the President nor the country. Had you that smart, you would have been the president. This is the way how business is done, you don't like it, make your choice, move north or south. Either way, no body cares.

      -I hate to say this, but Obama is the most -next to Clinton- 'people person' you're ever going to meet, so therefore it always seems like a guy like this is _going to_ be at the "next rally," so to speak. Anyways, money doesn't seemed to be the object when it comes to American politics...at least when a lot people -in every state- are starving on the street...No money, in America, should go to the great thing called/entitled, "advertising." (This expenditure realizes such benefit to the very people it is serving under democracy. [sic]).

      Unfortunately, I've had to pay my share into Federal coffers to cover Dubya's reelection campaign. NOT my choice, but comers with the territory!

    it is to bad that our political structure requires so much campaigning. But it does . Any president needs to get out and meet the people and campaign not to do so is folly and no president ever has been able to do this, So why are you dummies complaining ? The president needs to campaing just like romney. Are you all so stupid? Jay in NC your southern racist ideas are showing go kiss your cousin or something. Complaine about the president on policies not 0n stuff like this. Forward.

      They haven't read: "George W. Bush and the Permanent Campaign Trail Vol.III" by Emily Jane Charnock. A pdf for which can be found online. George W. Bush was actually campaigning on Sept.11, 2001, seven months into the first year of his presidency.... he was reading My Pet Goat to school children. boy do we all remember that day.

      You are right it is sad that a president has to campaign for cash from the first day of his presidency....we should know with people like jay, jerry, firstidiot, and John you can't cure stupid.

      • Obama 2012 - MOVE Forward America, NOT another round of DUBYA's FAILURES

        SO true.. and of course you don't hear any of the Teapugs whining about that, or Dubya's SIXTY+ trips to Crawford during his last 2 yrs as POTUS – all at taxpayer expense – nor do we hear about Dubya's SINGLE trip to Israel (in EIGHT yrs), yet the Teatards whine on about Obama not going... maybe he's as busy as Dubya puported to be ??
