It's a tough job being the president. The amount of information relevant to running a country of our size is daunting. So when President Bush says that he's unaware that gas could hit $4 a gallon this spring, despite all the news coverage about the issue, we'll cut him some slack. He probably hasn't filled up a car in years. It's just funny that a few minutes later he can't answer a question about funding for his presidential library because he's "focused elsewhere, like on gasoline prices..." Once again, as someone who spent more than a decade in the oil industry and was governor of the state that's home to the country's energy industry he can't be expected to know the price could go up.
