"Where has the President been for the last three years or so, as we've seen gas prices skyrocket? First, he promised the Iraq War would lower gas prices. As his senior economic adviser stated in 2002: 'The key issue is oil, and a regime change in Iraq would facilitate an increase in world oil, which would drive down oil prices, giving the U.S. economy an added boost.' It turns out that the Iraq War didn't increase world oil, only oil profits. So, then, President Bush promised that his energy policy (which included massive tax breaks for the oil industry) would help our energy crisis. Well, it did not help, but that result is to be expected when our nation's energy policy is drafted by the oil industry."
