Quoted for truth.
Why any sane person would put their faith in Romney and the GOP to steer the economy back to some semblance of health and not see that for Romney Co., this just represents the last good chance to scorch the earth in shifting as much of America's wealth to the smallest number of people....is utterly and totally beyond me.
The funniest thing around the world is to hear Americans use the price of gas in the tank as the indicator as to whether their president is doing a good job. It illustrates a depth and breadth of ignorance about how the global petro-chemical industry works and how the market is manipulated and massaged every hour of every day. The idea that Obama sets the price for regular at your pumps first thing each morning is ridiculous, but millions of Americans seem to be led to think that this is so and that all you have to do is keep drilling or piping.
News alert. It is all about refining capacity in North America. And the oil companies use every opportunity to manipulate the price of fuel based on production capacity. Republicans have to stop whining about the price of gas. It is just untrammelled private enterprise at work.
