Reprehensible Dems

This is the how the DNC responds to disaster and human tragedy:

WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following was released today by the Democratic National Committee:

This morning, President Bush told Diane Sawyer on ABC's Good Morning America that to ease skyrocketing gas prices Americans "oughtta conserve more and I would hope Americans conserve if given the choice."(ABC, Good Morning America, 9/1/05)

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement reminding President Bush that in case he hadn't noticed, ordinary Americans have been doing their part. They have been making sacrifices, they have been suffering. Meanwhile President Bush has failed to rein in skyrocketing gas prices. Now, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as Americans pull together to do their part, and gas prices again explode, Chairman Dean suggested that perhaps it's time for President Bush to finally use whatever influence he may have to call on his friends and campaign contributors in the oil and gas industry to bear their fair share of the burden:

"Under the Bush Presidency over the past five years we've seen skyrocketing gas prices and oil companies reaping record profits, while ordinary Americans struggle to pay their bills -- yet the President has seemingly looked the other way. Americans are always willing to shoulder their fair share of the burden, and they have been. Now it's time for the President to step up and put the needs of the American people ahead of profits for his pals in Big Oil. So while he's asking ordinary Americans to do more, he ought to show some real leadership, and call on his friends in Big Oil to join in the sacrifice and stop gouging American families at the gas pump."

Somebody please remind the DNC and Howard Dean that the price of oil is determined by the markets. Maybe Howard Dean should have taken some economic classes and learned that high prices are driven by high demand and inelastic supply. Someone please tell these delusional deranged degenerates that this high demand is from the Chinese and Indian economies, which are expanding at a very rapid pace. But also remind the DNC and DLC it's in their economic interest not to antagonize the Chinese too much or else the Chinese will end their illegal financial support of the DNC.

The solution to the so-called "gas crisis"? Americans should PRODUCE more.

How many oil refineries have been built in the U.S. in the last 20-plus years? Zero? Da*n environmentalcases...

The Democrats want to have it both ways, and it's understandable. They have constituencies that are at odds with each other. They have the "limousine liberals" and environmentalists who want people to burn less fossil fuels and pollute less (ie. conserve), and then they have some who are poor or middle class, blue collar, who really get affected by the high gas prices.

You'll often see them vascilate between calling for conservation and complaining that gas prices are too high. Nevermind that these are contradictory positions given the way markets and human nature work. If gas prices go down, as they say they want, gas consumption will rise. If they increase, conservation will increase, primarily because people will want to conserve their money!
