5. Americans always vote their pocketbooks,
wish it wasn't true but it is. I also think the american people always blame the president for the economy just or unjust, it always happens. In this particular case it make me extremely happy that they lay the blame for high gas prices at the door step of one GW. Bu$h.

ps. and with a little nudging from the rest of us, the republican party as well.
