Bush Bullshit, A Timeline

About a week ago, I blogged about the high cost of oil locally and one Democrat's attempt to do something about it.

So, what was the GOP response? Did they say, "Hey, Senator Schumer! Oil and gas prices are really a problem for our constituents. Let's work together and see if we can work together to come up with a solution."

Of course not. Did the GOP have a more typical response, and say, "Those Democrats are hurting the President during wartime by, you know, caring about Americans, and are, um, you know, giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Why do they hate America?"

They didn't do that either. What did they do? Why, they stole the Democrats' idea!

On Monday, Bill Frist and Dennis Hastert wrote a letter to Mr. Bush, urging him to open a federal investigation into price gouging. And then, miraculously, just as Schumer had originally suggested, he did!

I can just picture the closed-door meeting in a smoke-filled room: "Hey boss, those Dems got a good issue boss, they're gonna hang us out to try boss, what should we do? Boss? Boss? You ok? Ok, I know, boss, we'll take their idea!"

So, Bush decided, by God, he would do something about those oil prices, and he solved this problem the same way he solves all problems... by loosening regulation!

Typical Bush BS. Steal a good idea from the Dems and somehow turn it into a plan to further benefit oil companies. And at the same time trying to spin it as something good for the public. Obviously, this is all bluster, and the oil companies will never be properly regulated (as in don't kill the planet or break the law) until we get the current crop of oil executives out of the White House.
