ABC News quotes the president as saying “They view me as a war monger”
The president sat down with “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran at one of the vast royal palaces, and it became clear who holds the cards right now in the oil markets, with the price up near $100 a barrel. The president, who once said he’d “jawbone” Saudi leaders into lowering prices, told Moran what he intended to say to King Abdullah on the topic in their meeting.
“I will say to him that, ‘If it’s possible, your majesty, consider what high prices is doing to one of your largest customers,’” Bush said. “In other words, the worst thing that can happen to an oil-producing nation is that the price of oil causes the economy to slow down, because that will inevitably lead to fewer purchases [of oil].”
Pretty damned funny.
