Don't blame the addict, while you have secret meetings with the pusher....

In the State of the Union address, Pres. Bush accused the nation of being "addicted" to oil. Ironically, not long ago, the Bush administration held secret meetings with oil companies to devise a plan to increase profits as the alleged “addiction” escalated. Recently, Exxon Mobil reported their profits soared to $36.13 billion in 2005, "the highest ever for a U.S. company."

Heck, common sense tells you if you were going to blame the addict, don't have secret meetings with the neighborhood dealer to figure out a way to make greater profits from the addiction. Working families are not the problem, Mr. President. Big Oil is the problem.
