You haven't learned much since your magnificent performance on the Iraq propaganda thread--stalwartly denying you had been hit, as your ship sank beneath the waves.
If you think Bush's Iraq policy and now his threats against Iran have no impact on the oil market, you're even more naive than I thought. How many citations will it take to enlighten you?
Also "the US consumption of fuel has got nothing to do with George W Bush". Wrong, as usual.
Nobody argues with the idea that the US public has to change its profligate ways regarding oil. But who has been the #1 cheerleader of the the "just find more oil"--it's our birthright to waste resources" approach?--until VERY recently. Why looky there, it's Mr. Bush. Quelle surprise! And who has seen to it that any requirements on fuel economy have been stripped out of energy bills? Why, it's his strongest supporters. Amazing! Instead of conserving, let's ravage anywhere in the world where there's oil, including now the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
According to Bush's own DOE, the difference in foreign oil dependence with the Refuge oil will be about 2%.
Let 'er rip. Remember our birthright--cheap oil. Classic Bush--and Bushites. It's such a privilege to share the planet with you and other Bush supporters.
