Bush Blames the Democrats

If it wasn't such a serious subject this would make you laugh. The reason for high gas prices according to our illustrious president is because of the Democrats. This from a story in USA Today:

President Bush on Saturday blamed the Democratic-led Congress for the high cost of gasoline and renewed his call for expanded offshore drilling to increase U.S. oil supplies.

"To reduce pressure on prices, we need to increase the supply of oil, especially oil produced here at home," Bush said in his weekly radio address.

Let's see who had majorities in both houses of Congress. Right that would be the Republicans. And that just so happens to be Bush's party. But somehow high gas prices are the fault of the Democrats.

Bush past up a great opportunity after 9-11 to rally this country. To ask for sacrifices. To end our addiction to foreign oil. But Bush passed on those opportunities. The fault is not the Democrats, Mr. President. The fault is yours for doing nothing when you had the chance of doing something.
