Economic illiteracy and the American public
Appallingly, 42% of Americans think Bush is manipulating gas prices to win the election for Republicans, in spite of the press actually DOING THEIR JOB and explaining the forces at work. And we want more people to vote?!
Boortz' commentary on this included the following:
1.) I thought Bush was an idiot. If he's so dumb, then how is he controlling the price of gasoline and the world price of oil? Surely such an intellectual lightweight is incapable of lording over the worldwide energy market and controlling it.
Actually, the real evidence that Bush Is A Idiot is that he hasn't used his power to manipulate oil prices to make himself filthy stinking rich, like any other American (even a liberal) would.
