Timing is everything
On the day that Exxon Mobil Corp announces a profit of $8.4 billion (oh, lets use all of the zeroes: $8,400,000,000.00 …that’s better) for three months, Senatorial candidate Michael Steele releases this statement:
Washington must take swift action to come to the aid of families across America. The quickest way it can do so is to immediately suspend for 120 days the 18.4 cents-per-gallon tax. We know that gasoline prices generally increase during the summer months, and that is why it is absolutely critical that Congress and President Bush act now to immediately lower gasoline prices.
It’s almost enough to make you toss your cookies….
