I thought it was great. Get Durbin out of there though. All the experts basically said the profits of oil companies are justified and Durbin's the one who just doesn't get it.

I couldn't believe the Senator from Illinois was so skeptical about nuclear of all the places.

MTP showed its arrogance toward America by putting on Durbin and the inarticulate Bowman. What an opportunity lost to explain how the gasoline market works. Bowman did not seem to have much on his 3x5" card except some repeated nonsense about investigating the oil companies. It is unbelievable that Russert got him to declare a "crisis" in America.

Where I live, folks are happily sitting in long traffic jams on the way to work in Hartford coming south on I-91 as well as all the ones caught on the Belt Parkway around Kennedy airport this past weekend. $3 plus per gallon does not seem to be chaning behavior. No recession. In fact, the economy is booming along with 4.8% growth at last measure. Less than 5% unemployment, near historically low home mortgage interest rates, and a six year high in the DJIA, and a whole host of folks breaking down the boarder trying to get in on the action. MTP was another edition in the MSM's attempt to peddle doom & gloom.
