Idiocy From The Past

In 2000....
Gov. George W. Bush of Texas said today that if he was president, he would bring down gasoline prices through sheer force of personality, by creating enough political good will with oil-producing nations that they would increase their supply of crude.

''I would work with our friends in OPEC to convince them to open up the spigot, to increase the supply,'' Mr. Bush, the presumptive Republican candidate for president, told reporters here today. ''Use the capital that my administration will earn, with the Kuwaitis or the Saudis, and convince them to open up the spigot.''

Just imagine... just increase supply a little and *poof!* happy days are here. Like cutting a 19¢ gas tax would accomplish much.

But nothing about the exponentially increased demand from growing economies....

So Beloved Leader was always a man of vision with a clear view of the world....
