    Bush White House Counselor Dan Bartlett Caught In A Lie: ‘No One Ever Said The War Would Result In Cheaper Gas Prices’

    President Bush’s senior economic advisor at the time — argued in 2002 that the Iraq war would increase oil supplies and lower prices. From the Washington Times, 9/19/02:
    As for the impact of a war with Iraq, “It depends how the war goes.” But he quickly adds that that “Under every plausible scenario, the negative effect will be quite small relative to the economic benefits that would come from a successful prosecution of the war.”
    “The key issue is oil, and a regime change in Iraq would facilitate an increase in world oil,” which would drive down oil prices, giving the U.S. economy an added boost.

    Isn't this just another Republican screw up the GOP is blaming on Obama?

    Remember "Jobs Jobs Jobs" and then, "Government can't make jobs"?

    So are they running on "We don't know how to do anything"?

    Might I suggest you have a look at what other nations pay for gas? Gas in the USA is ridiculously cheap by comparison to the vast majority of them.

    RDean thinks that by calling attention to the greatest failure of his God, the rise of gas prices, that the stink will attach to someone else.

    Deanie, the price of gas has about doubled since the Big 0 took office and he wishes it was higher so his buddies in the alternative energy business could get more subsidies.

    Your man is a failure and his polices are unapologetically corrupt. He is actively campaigning to end the USA and fighting against the prosperity of the people of the country. November 6 is the finish line of the worst presidency in the history of the republic.

    I hope we can hang on until then. Lord knows we'll get no help from Washington.

    Funny, no one remembers cheap gas from Iraq, but they want to blame the guy who didn't want to go into Iraq.

    Who would have predicted that you hate your nation so much that youd elect a President who wants our energy prices to necessarily skyrocket, thus making the poor and the sick among us to be unable to purchase said energy and more likely to die because of it?

    I believe it was the fact they were impeding weapons inspectors, everyone believed they had WMD's, they moved them to syria, Saddam killed millions of people and was a threat to the middle east.
