Record Oil Prices And Bush Is Helpless Friday, April 21, 2006

OIl hit record highs on the market today, soaring past $75 a gallon with no apparent end in sight. With problems continuing to mount in both Iran and Nigeria, the only thing we can do is bend over and grab our ankles.

Many "experts" list a number of problems resulting in such high prices at the pump but with $3 a gallon or more, results is what we need. The working men and women of this country continue to be forced in dire financial straits and it's all because of the price at the pump.

President Bush spoke at Cisco Systems today in SIlicon Valley and while he ackknowledged rising prices are "like a tax, particularly on the working people and the small-business people," he won't do anything about it. He said that any price gouging will be "dealt with firmly" but he won't do that because the entire oil industry is gouing the price. It's being done at the market place and reports are already showing ExxonMobile will have another record quarter.

So let's put this in perspective: He's killing our young men and women in Iraq, he's wreaking havoc on the poor in places like New Orleans and now he's trying to make everyone else poor in the process. He says he can't do anything about it. This is proof he's merely a pawn in office. He CHOOSES not to do anything about it. Presidents in the past have knocked heads with big companies. Hell... Teddy Roosevelt butted heads with JP Morgan. But then again, Dubyah is a far cry from Teddy.
