We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Oil In The Overnight...
Bush is saying he's ready to get tough on gas prices by ordering a probe into price gouging. He's responding to a recent letter from the Republican leadership in Congress after the Democrats (Charles Shumer) called for a probe a week ago.
Now the entire laughable thing about all this is it's simply a smoke screen. Who the hell does he think he's fooling by "probing" price gouging. Someone needs to probe his head to find the alien devices inside. He won't bite the hand that feeds him.
From the AP story:
Bush is under pressure to do something about gas prices that have reached nearly $3 a gallon. In a new CNN poll, 69 percent of respondents said gasoline price increases had caused them personal hardship. Other polls suggest that voters favor Democrats over Republicans on the issue, and President Bush gets low marks for handling gas prices.
So what's he going to do on the national level? Is he going to go after the oil companies for manipulating the market? Doubtful unless it's to have dinner back at the ranch in Crawford. This is PURE garbage. Hell... he probably owns a few million shares in Exxon Mobil as does Dick Cheney and all the Bush family. They're getting richer off this. Yep... I'm saying it out loud. The president of the United States, George W. Bush, has an obvious conflict of interest and is committing the basest level graft possible. That's why he won't do anything about it. Never mind the polls saying most of America is experiencing personal hardship. As long as he doesn't.
