BRANDOLAND: Talking to God...For You!

Monday, April 19, 2004

Two great items from Woodward's new book on the prez and Bob's appearance on the 4/18/2004 "60 Minutes."

1. GAS PRICES ARE GONNA COME DOWN BEFORE THE ELECTION! YEAH!!!

Here's the info...

April 19 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the U.S. has promised President George W. Bush the Saudis will reduce oil prices before this November's election to help the U.S. economy, according to Bob Woodward, author of a new book about the Iraq war.

(Wait. To help the US economy or to help Bush?)

Oil prices are "high, and they could go down very quickly,'' Woodward said last night in an interview on CBS's "60 Minutes.''

"That's the Saudi pledge,'' said Woodward. "Certainly over the summer or as we get closer to the election they could increase production several million barrels a day and the price would drop significantly.''

(Hey...waitaminute. Why can't the Saudis "do that now?" Oh...right.)

The Saudis trimmed their output by 1 million barrels a day in the first quarter, according to Bloomberg data.

Crude oil has risen 15 percent to more than $37 a barrel this year. The rise in crude has helped send gasoline prices to a record average of $1.79 a gallon in the U.S., according to the AAA, formerly the American Automobile Association.

($2.23 for the low grade regular junk here in SoCal. Boy, I can't wait 'til November. It'll be awesome! In the meantime...Top Ramen for this guy.)

2. BUSH DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HOW "HISTORY" WILL REGARD HIM...BECAUSE HE'LL BE DEAD BY THEN!

(Huh?)

From the April 26 issue of NEWSWEEK -

In his interview with Woodward, conducted over two days in December of last year, Bush displayed no second thoughts about Iraq's postwar miseries or the failure to turn up any WMD. "I haven't suffered doubt," he told Woodward. When the author—quoting Bush's political adviser Karl Rove—suggested that "all history gets measured by outcomes," Bush "smiled," reports Woodward. "History," he said, shrugging, taking his hands out of his pockets, extending his arms out and suggesting with his body language that it was so far off. "We won't know. We'll all be dead."

(?!?!)

Once again...in case you missed that last sentence, "my man" said, "We won't know, we'll all be dead."

WE WON'T KNOW, WE'LL ALL BE DEAD.

Brilliant.

What a guy.

Such character! Strength!! Conviction!!!

Is there any reason to comment...ah, f*ck it.

More later...
