Even a Dog Knows Gas Could Top $4 a Gallon

I tend to get many chances to watch TV, check out the news, as well as online. After all, the dog with a voice must be well-versed in the topics of the day. So last week, as I had a chance to catch "W" at a news conference, I was deemed silent when he informed a room full of reporters (as well as the world) that he had not heard of analysts predicting gas could top $4 a gallon soon. The rock "W" has been living under for some time is bigger than I thought!

Mr. President, let me ask you to please read this news clip. Or perhaps this clip. And just in case you still think the reporter who asked the question last week was pulling your leg, try this third clip.

Mr. President (and I use this term loosely) what in the wide wide world of beagle love are you doing every day? The cost of gas has been a topic for months -- no years! Of course, since you refuse to mention the "R" word, you likely wouldn't know that the cost of gas is causing heartache for many American families.

With this said, let me speak on behalf of those who do not have or use their voices to speak out on this issue. "W"...become informed! We all know you have a few months left in office (the rescue dogs of America rejoice!), but at least ACT like you care. ACT as if the hardships of Americans, some of whom voted for you twice, are of importance and that you get up each and every day and think about what you can do to help. No, your actions will not likely benefit many of your contributors from big oil companies seeing record profits from the higher prices, but it might actually be what is best for the country. Promote conservation; discuss alternative fuels; advocate mass transit and investment in future mass transit; maybe even watch the news and read some online analyst comments; do something to show you care and are informed. Americans deserve your undivided attention on this matter. And if it takes a rescue dog to help get your mind on the American people then so be it!!
