    Yeah, I realize that is hardly news. He has spent his presidency blaming someone else for his own failures. But obviously high gas prices are sapping his already-sagging popularity. So he must find someone else to blame. But not only is he not just casting allegation, he actually will appoint a committee to do the dirty work for him. This isn't new. Presidents etc regularly investigate companies for "gouging" even though there is no such thing.
    If only he would just once accept blame and recognize that his policies, and those of his Democrat allies in Congress, have caused this mess. But that's asking a lot.

    All he needs to do is lift his stupid moratorium...some of this goes away. The rest of the problem lies somewhat in the turmoil in the Mideast presently going on.

    Just something else to throw money at. Not like this isn't the first time from the democrats to prove that the oil companies are evil. When all said and done, this investigation will end up just like all the other investigations.....it ain't the oil companies.

    Just another campaign stunt by a not ready for prime time president.

    However they spin it... its still his fault.


    I remember him saying "The buck stops here".

    Heck, maybe he was reffering to a "deer" friend or something. :dunno:
