Let’s see. Have I got the
Obamian Democrat economic agenda correct?
No drilling for oil in the US to ease the high fuel prices in the US and, therefore, the price of transporting people and goods,
No free trade with Colombia and
No free trade with South Korea(!)
All of which is supposed to magically put money in the pockets of Americans.
You know, if I were a conspiracy-minded sort I’d guess that the Democrat-controlled Congress were behaving in such a manner as to make economic conditions so bad in this country that its citizens would clamor for a little-s savior in November-–one who is the antithesis of the "horrible Bush who ruined the economy," dontcha know.
Yes, I would believe that if I were a conspiracy-minded sort.

If Congress really cared about the economic well-being of American citizens, it would stop fulminating against [U.S. investor-owned oil companies] and reverse current policies that discourage, indeed prohibit, the production of domestic oil and natural gas. Even the announcement that Congress was opening the way for domestic production would lead to downward pressure on oil prices.(Emphasis mine.)
Conversely, when US Congresswomen start talking about nationalizing the American oil industry, one realizes how much trouble we're in--even if it's obvious that the congresswoman in question doesn't really know what she's taking about.
