"This war is a powder keg. It could take the price of a barrel to US $100"

Those are the words of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez at a meeting of OPEC last Wednesday.

But no one is talking about it, and I can't figure out why.

If oil prices reach anything close to $100 a barrel, it will mean the loss of productivity for business, it will mean the loss of jobs for workers, and it will mean higher prices on lots of things besides gas for all of us.

And its because the President chose to fight this war at this time in this way. He has no one to blaim but himself for his failures or the state of our country....
