I blame Bush for this.
We all know that incumbent Republican Presidents can’t possibly be responsible for cajoling more output out of OPEC; thereby lowering prices for oil and refined gas.
But, on the other hand, incumbent Republican Presidents standing for re-election are 100 percent responsible when oil and gas prices happen to be rising; at least in the Kael-ish mind’s eye of the modern partisan liberal, and his or her complicit national media.
Hmm. How do you spell that word: D-u-p-l-i-c-i-t-y?
