Gas prices high or low, it's Bush's fault

A hefty 42% of Americans polled over the weekend said they think fuel prices are being manipulated by the Bush administration to help Republicans in an election year. The USA TODAY/Gallup Poll has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
In the not-so-distant past, I remember stories like this one:
Mr. Bush devoted a portion of his weekly radio address Saturday to responding to the criticism that his administration is not doing enough to curb gasoline prices.
So, high gas prices means Bush isn't doing enough. But when he does do something and we have low gas prices -- which in reality, the President can't really affect anyway -- it's cynical manipulation for political purposes. Yet another testament to the irrational hatred for this President, and the endless and abounding conspiracy theories.

Dude, I told everyone that Bush should release some of the oil reserves around election time to lower gas prices, and see what people (liberals) think about that, after all their crying about Bush needing to do something about gas prices.
