President Barack Obama on Thursday rebutted his Republican critics, like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who have accused him of having a “politics of envy.”

“Do we want to keep these tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans or do we want to keep investing in everything else?” he said at an event in Las Vegas. “We can’t do both.”

Obama said that those making over a million dollars a year should pay a tax rate of at least 30 percent, his so-called Buffett rule, and noted that Bill Gates had a similar view.

An attack on the right to vote is underway across the country through laws designed to make it more difficult to cast a ballot. If this were happening in an emerging democracy, we’d condemn it as election-rigging. But it’s happening here, so there’s barely a whimper.

The laws are being passed in the name of preventing “voter fraud.” But study after study has shown that fraud by voters is not a major problem — and is less of a problem than how hard many states make it for people to vote in the first place. Some of the new laws, notably those limiting the number of days for early voting, have little plausible connection to battling fraud.

Why will it be $5 per gallon?? We were suppose to decrease our dependence on foreign oil by increasing our own oil production and selling more Hybrid cars that run on more energy efficient fuels. Cars are suppose to be able to get more miles per gallon now also, although legislation was recently passed to make sure that this comes about, the MPG still needs to increase overall.

Fmr. Shell president ‘predicting’ $5-a-gallon gas in 2012

The former president of Shell Oil said he believes Americans could be paying $5 for a gallon a gas by 2012.

"I’m predicting actually the worst outcome over the next two years which takes us to 2012 with higher gasoline prices," John Hofmeister said in a recent interview with Platts Energy Week television.

Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst with Oil Price Information Service, agreed that Americans would see $5 a gallon gas but told CNN that he did not believe it would happen in 2012. “That wolf is out there and it’s going to be at the door…I agree with him that we’ll see those numbers at some point this decade but not yet.”

"The demand is still sluggish enough in some of the mature economies," he said.

Hofmeister also predicted that demand would outstrip supply before the end of the decade.

"When supplies run low and the demand is still high, many areas will start to run out, with gas stations having no supplies," World News Insight observed. “Ultimately rationing could then come into force. We could be looking at a return to the 1970’s.”

Average gas prices rose higher than $3 last week for the first time since October 2008.

Consumers were paying 17 percent more than a year ago and seven percent more than just last month, according to AAA.

Hawaii has the highest average price in the nation at $3.636. California is next highest at $3.275.

For the first time since October 2008, the price of a barrel of crude closed above $90 Wednesday.
