Not that GWBush would contradict himself

A couple of observations from Think Progress

First; George W. Bush, 4/20/05:
"If someone doesn’t pay his or her debts the rest of society is left paying for them."
Amount added to the federal debt during the George W. Bush presidency:
2.2 trillion

Second; In 2000, then-Gov. George W. Bush:
“The president of the United States must jawbone OPEC members to lower the price"
as president he would “convince them to open up the spigot to increase the supply.”
Fast-forward to April 2004. Saudi Arabia led the fight within OPEC to cut production to keep prices high. President Bush
“refused to lean on the oil cartel” and refused to even “personally lobby OPEC leaders to change their minds.”
