This from the White House today:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House reiterated on Tuesday that it considered energy prices too high but said the economy would weather the impact.Let's see. Energy prices are too high, admits the White House, but "the economy would weather the impact." Sure, if it's ok with the White House that too many people won't be able to afford heating their cold houses this winter. It's ok as long as the White House doesn't acknowledge the vast majority of the population is making pretty much the same salary it did when gas was half the price. It's ok as long the White House doesn't acknowledge that people have no choice BUT to pay for gas and energy, thereby giving up other necessities of life just to keep their jobs that aren't paying enough to pay the cost of living and heat their homes in order not to freeze to death during the winter.
"We've had high gas prices for a while. They've been too high for as many months as I can remember, but our economy has been remarkably resilient to it," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told reporters.
Asked whether the Bush administration was considering tapping U.S. oil stockpiles to deal with the higher energy prices, Perino responded, "The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is there for emergencies and we have not played politics with the SPR."
She also said the best way to address the high energy costs was to deal with the root cause, which is "a supply and demand issue."
SUUUURRRREEEEEE. The economy can CERTAINLY "weather" the impact. As long as you're rich and don't really have to worry about the aforementioned problems...
Did you get this line from good ol' Dana? "e've had high gas prices for a while. They've been too high for as many months as I can remember, but our economy has been remarkably resilient to it." Huh? Well, of course it has!!! What choice have we?
Dana is just another in a long line of idiots working for greedy idiots and just toeing the party line, without thought, without question...
No wonder Chareidi Judaism and RW politics go hand in hand. They are essentially the same!!
