Start Up The Printing Presses

july 15, 2008

Are you really serious President Bush?  Are you really?  You want to lift the ban on off-shore drilling, but you will say... "I readily concede it won't produce a barrel of oil tomorrow, but it will reverse the psychology," Bush told a White House news conference. Hey, how about this sir:  Just tell the American public that you'll be spinning up the printing presses at the US Federal Reserve and that you will be handing out millions of dollars to each American citizen. That money won't really get out to the American public; but,  you know, "it will reverse the psychology" and help Americans spend more during this economic downturn. That would be a better way about going at it than opening up for off-shore drilling, which will not help anyone.  And could potentially destroy our environment.  Stop trying to help your oil drilling buddies President, try helping the environment instead. I don't know what this says about what President Bush this about the American public.  Does he think that the American public is dumb enough to buy into this "off-shore drilling will lower the price at the pump" deal?  Or is the American public really dumb enough to believe that bunch of shit? Sheesh.
