All of this is tied to the high price of OIL and the people that hold stock in the OIL industry. It is their greed that is hurting our economy. The two biggest live in DC.

Yeah, that sucks. I hate for all those folks to lose their job but I am also sick of blaming everything on the president. He has been blamed for 9-11, economy, gas prices, oil prices, hurricane katrina.....time to find a new goat.

I have to agree with Muhee. You have a whole government who for 30years has put roadblocks in place for domestic drilling AND clean energy substitutes such as nuclear (yes its clean, the French, Germans and Japanese have used it with no accidents for decades now). Wind and sun are decades away from being a real option to replace fossil fuels. Want economy to turn around and gas prices to go down. Tell your Representatives to DRILL IN AMERICA NOW! Tell them to end Corn Ethanol subsidies that are starving people in the 3rd world and raising domestic food prices by 50-75%. Cellulose (switchgrass) ethanol is proven and won't have as much impact on food prices. Lastly, EDUCATE YOURSELF. Don't suck up every bit of tripe that the news and your personnel pet politician spout. Persecute the oil companies, I don't care, persecute Cheney and Bush, I don't care. Neither of these things will lower gas prices NOR stimulate an economy ravaged by high energy prices. Those things were created by a goverment that did NOTHING to try and end reliance on foreign energy. I pray for these people and their families. I pray for my own job and my family. I fear America will ride rhetoric and fear right into the unemployment line.

I recall Bush tring to drill in Alaska....Wonder why that didn't happen. I would start looking for a job in the energy field or go back to school.

I could not agree more wiht MikenHaskell, everything is not the Presidents fault. Congress has does none nothing for energy independents, and now they are bailing out companies left and right. Yet the President gets blamed. Sorry people but the Democratic controlled Congress for the past two years is the one that creates this bail out bills, the President just signs them into law. You can blame the President but just don't forget about Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reed, they too are too blame!!`
