I was channeling surfing for news on July 17, when I heard Bill O’Reilly thanking Americans for listening to him when “he” requested that we all cut back on our fuel consumption to send a message to “big oil”.
He mentioned that it was working!
“Americans have done what I asked them to do and that was to reduce our dependence on oil”.Â This is a paraphrased quote of Bill O’Reilly.
Is this guy kidding or just plain ignorant?
Americans have reduced dependence on oil because we simply cannot afford it!
And this genius is taking a little bit of the credit?
On another note, President Bush was asked on Tuesday how Americans are supposed to cope with the rising cost of fuel.
Guess what his rocket surgeon’s response was?
He basically said, “it’s a little presumptuous on my part to dictate to consumers how they live their lives. The American people are plenty capable and plenty smart people and they’ll make adjustments to their own pocketbooks“.
Â Hmm, that is comforting Mr. President.
Rather than doing something about the rising cost of fuel, in your last months in office, let’s just appease everyone with a typical Bush idiotic statement that at least proves my point that he is an idiot.Social tagging: Economic News > General Business
