The best campaign counter-attack video I HAVE EVER SEEN. Obama 2012 

”So we’re going to call their BS when we see it and we need your help to call them on it too and set the record straight. So share this, tweet it, facebook it, I keep hearing about tumblr and whatever that is…please use that too. Thank you.”

-Stephanie Cutter / Deputy Campaign Manager at Obama for America.

Hmmm…
“America’s dependence on foreign oil has gone down every single year since President Obama took office. In 2010, we imported less than 50 percent of the oil our nation consumed—the first time that’s happened in 13 years—and the trend continued in 2011.”

Fox News continues to blame Obama For Change In Gas Prices From January 2009 To  Now. On at least six occasions in the past week, Fox News has pushed the talking  point that gasoline prices have almost doubled (increasing 83% or 90% or 91%)  since Obama took office in January 2009. The claim was also promoted this week  by the Drudge Report and CNSNews, as well as the Senate Republican Conference.  Fox falsely suggested that Obama’s energy policies are to blame for the increase  in prices, without explaining that prices were low in January 2009 because the  recession slashed demand.
