Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You don't understand.  Our politicians believe they have magical powers.  Eight years ago Junior was promising to "jaw-bone" OPEC as a means to getting more production.  A week or two ago, while pushing the gas-tax holiday, Hillary actually threatened to break up OPEC.

So this is really just average on the Washington Stupid Scale.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

With what? Her pantsuit?

It would be like McCain promising to put the ay-rabs in their place with his Magic Smile of Doom.

So this is really just average on the Washington Stupid Scale

Which, unfortunately, seems to be calibrated in powers of ten.

No.  Remember she's a big gun-nut now.  Annie Oakley in a pant suit.  And, really, if Obama can't bowl higher than a 37, how can we trust him to stand up to OPEC?

On a good day.
