Tone deaf

Link.
President Bush defended the huge profits of Exxon Mobil Corp. on Wednesday, saying they are simply the result of the marketplace and that consumers socked with soaring energy costs should not expect price breaks.
We were all paying $3.00+ per gallon of gas a few months ago in the wake of Katrina, and now find out that it all went to the bottom lines of the oil companies. I can't believe that Bush would be so dumb as to defend that outcome.
