  • I’m glad you also pointed out that the #1 contributor to Speaker Pelosi in ’06 was Occidental Petroleum, otherwise you’d look pretty clueless.

  • Is there supposed to be a correlation between the contributions to Bush’s campaign and oil prices? I’m not seeing it. Did Big Oil make large contributions to Jimmy Carter’s campaign when oil prices went through the roof in the late 70’s?
    What’s the link to the OPEC story for? Did OPEC donate to Bush’s campaign too? Maybe Ahmadinejad was secretly a Bush Ranger…..

    Pelosi takes money from the same companies and maintains the status quo.

    Bush has dragged his feet on things that would decrease our reliance on big oil, they’ve given quite a bit to his campaign, and profits are through the roof for oil companies. I only linked to the OPEC story because it summed up the record profits that the oil industry is seeing right now.

  • Oh come on… you’re too smart to believe that the Bush administration controls oil prices, aren’t you?
