It’s All Bush’s Fault…Part 3,568

This is Bush’s Fault…

Oil prices sank more than a dollar Wednesday to their lowest level in more than three months as robust U.S. inventories at the end of the summer driving season dulled bullish sentiment.

U.S. light crude for October delivery tumbled $1.10 to settle at $67.50 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier in the session, the front-month contract touched as low as $67.45, the lowest since May 22.

So is this….

Gas prices are continuing to drop. AAA Carolinas pegs the current average in Charlotte at $2.84. (The statewide average is $2.76, and it’s down to $2.63 across the S.C. border.) That’s still higher than drivers might like, but it’s well below the prices from most of the summer.

And this…

US employers added 128,000 jobs last month [August] while the unemployment rate fell a notch to 4.7 pct, the Labor Department said.

In July, the number of jobs added was revised to 121,000 from 113,000.

And since Bush is in control of the Worldwide Oil MegaCompany… this must be his fault, too.

An oil discovery by Chevron Corp. has bolstered prospects that petroleum companies will be able to tap giant reserves that lie far beneath the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Oil analysts and company executives said newly released test results from a well 175 miles off the coast of Louisiana indicate that the oil industry will be able to recover well more than 3 billion barrels, and perhaps as much as 15 billion barrels, of oil from a geological area known as the lower tertiary trend, making it the biggest addition to U.S. petroleum reserves in decades.

The upper end of the estimate could boost U.S. reserves by 50 percent.

“This looks to be the biggest discovery in the United States in a generation, really since the discovery of Prudhoe Bay 38 years ago,” said Daniel Yergin, chairman of the consulting firm Cambridge Energy Research Associates Inc.

Man, how can the dumbest President ever also be the most calculating and manipulative President ever?  Kind of like how can we have global warming when glaciers are melting AND growing?!?

  1. Grampa: “What? And turn into someone that thinks like you guys? What a stomach-churning, revolting idea.”

    Yeah, my sentiments exactly. The thought of you actually getting a brain and a conscience is enough to make me want to puke, too. Then you’d be much more dangerous than you are now.

  2. “What? And turn into someone that thinks like you guys? What a stomach-churning, revolting idea.”

    Yeah, thinking about issues and forming rational, fact-based opinions is hard. It’s much easier just to emote and spew, isn’t it, Gryph?

  3. Sorry Patrick, but VdaK and Peter nailed ya’ roundly on the forehead.

    You had the opportunity –it’s disappointing you continue to serve radical GayLeft partisan interests so willingly.

  4. in rural Pennsylvania gasolines $2.52. Each ten cent drop in gas prices is worth 2% for Santorum. 3 more debate performances by Casey like last weeks equals victory for principled Rick Santorum.
    Yeah it is interesting that Republicans are hurt by high gas prices when it’s the Dems who do everything they can to raise em and keep em high.Lack of drilling. 40 fuel blends. Push for BTU taxes and as much as 50cent a gallon further taxes. Question: if gasoline falls to $2 by election day will Gore HRC Reid actually suggest a tax increase?

  5. #54 – Not unless the RATS have a political death wish.

    As I’ve always said – if it’s good for America, it’s bad for the RATS. I hear that the Reid/Pelosi/Dean faction is waiting for another terrorist attack to boost their own ratings. I hope it’s only a rumor.

  6. #55: It amuses me that you refer to the minority party as ‘Rats,’ because where I went to high school, ‘rats’ was the slang expression for losers and burnouts… i.e. the Democrat Base.

  8. #57 – Actually, BP, the demoncRATS always sound like “whineless-spineless little babies.” Because they mistakenly believe that ultimate power in the government is their birthright, they will never be content with being the MINORITY party in the US government.

    And yes, in the case of them being so whiny about their status in DC, yes – it is Bush’s fault. And Rove’s. And the electorate’s. Because we all see them for what they are – scribes, Pharisees and hypocrites.

  9. We used to hear the Libs say they wanted gas taxed all the way up to $6 a gallon, which they said would force people to drive less and use public transportation more. This would decrease pollution “just like in Europe.”

    Then when gas climbed to $3 a gallon they complained that it was “hard on working families” and a big conspiracy between Bush and the oil companies. I didn’t hear even one Lib say, “Yeah but guys, think about the lowered emissions if people start driving less” because they were all too busy criticizing the Bush administration.

  10. #59 – Good point! In fact, wasn’t it Algore who expounded on that theory?

    Of course, he was also the same person who insisted that people who earned $250,000 a year could be considered “millionaires” after 4 years of earning that same wage. I guess he forgot that even with a quarter-million a year tax free, there would still be consumption…

    Stupid is as stupid does.

  11. It all makes sense, CG and PH, if you look at it from this perspective: Dem policies are meant to make people dependent on government.

  12. Today the Dow closed up 101.25 (.9%), NASDAQ up 42.57 (2.0%) and oil fell to $63.75 – with predictions of crude futures as low as $50 or LESS.

    Any guess as to why the libtards are wailing in their hairshirts and gnashing their teeth? Could it be because the ECONOMY IS BOOMING?

    Peter’s Principle of Politics #13 – If it’s good for America, it’s bad for the libtards.

    Bank on it.

  13. Here in Michigan, in my neighborhood, gas prices are now down to $2.24/gal –its got the Left whistling “I Left My heart in SF”.

    I love taking our Hummer with the Bush sticker to the pump, filling it up while whistling “Happy Days are Here Again” and watching scorn fill the faces of my FarLeft friends and neighbors at busy gas station on the corner. Curious enough, we’re the only home in our neighborhood that flies an American flag. Hmmm.

    I wish we had two Hummers some days.
