RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - President Bush failed to win the help he sought from Saudi Arabia to relieve skyrocketing American gas prices Friday, a setback for the former Texas oilman who took office predicting he would jawbone oil-producing nations to help the U.S.
I note that this is my 3rd post this year on the same topic (4 Mar: W's energy policy; 20 Jan: "Please, sir, I want some more.").
Simply pathetic: begging his best buds, the Saudis, for cheaper oil!
I thought Cheney was in charge of our energy policy. Why doesn't W ask him for help?
For what it's worth: Two things started happening pretty much immediately after W went after Saddam.
1) Oil prices started going up - they've never stopped.Can anyone name even ONE achievement of this Administration?
2) the dollar started going down relative to the Euro - this trend, too, has never stopped.
Funny-sad: The REPUBLICANS want us to believe that they can get us out of this mess... THEIR mess!
Stop the madness!
