In case you didn’t believe me when I stated this before, the Democrats will say ANYTHING to get Back in power:
he campaigns for President Bush and his likely Democratic opponent, Senator John Kerry, traded accusations today about who is more to blame for gasoline prices that have shot past $2 a gallon in many parts of the country.
“Where is the president?” Mr. Kerry asked in Portland, Ore., where he made a campaign stop at a training center. “We need a president who is fighting for the American worker, the American family, at the fuel pumps, to lower the price of gas in the United States.”
He and several other Democratic leaders accused the president today of breaking a campaign promise to try to control oil prices by pressuring oil-producing nations to increase production.
Several United States senators today called on the White House to release strategic oil reserves they say would help bring down the soaring price of gasoline.”
Let’s make sure we have the events in the correct chronological order:
First, the Democrats accused Bush of not using his close relationship with the Saudi’s to lower the price of oil.
Then, they intentionally mis-interpreted Woodward’s book and accused Bush and the Saudi’s of manipulating the oil market to lower prices to help Bush get elected.
In 2000, Kerry was against tapping the strategic oil reserve.
Today, he is in favor of it.
