Saudi Arabia Rebuffs Bush On Oil Production

Only our president can look like an idiot sitting next to a guy who wears sheets for clothing!

It seems the Saudi's aren't willing to increase their output of oil. They say they are meeting the world's demand. When President Idiot first met with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah in mid-January, the president asked Saudi Arabia to raise oil production to ease high prices at the pump. But he got a chilly response to that plea. The kingdom said it would increase production only when the market justified it, and that production levels appeared normal.

So this tells us a few things:

That even guys who wear sheets as clothing recognize what a bozo our president is and won't do anything for him (seems possible, even though the Saudi's and the Bush family have a long history together.)

That their output is meeting demands and the greedy oil people are the ones who are causing such high prices for gasoline and oil (this is entirely plausible seeing as the oil companies have had record earnings in the past year.)

That the Saudi's are lying and causing the problems and they are making record profits (again, entirely plausible.)

No matter which one of these (or all of the above) theories are true, American's are being laughed at around the world for the past almost 8 years.

All we can hope is that the next president, be it Obama or Clinton, will make repairing our image around the world a priority. That alone might straighten out many of the problems that we face.
