Biden gets nothing for his fist bump with Mohammad bin Salman

Oh well, so much for sacrificing what you claimed were your principles.

According to the New York Post:

President Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia was deemed a failure by analysts after oil-producing states announced Wednesday that they would boost output by just 100,000 barrels a day starting next month — a drop in the bucket compared to America’s vast energy needs.

The Saudi-led Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies announced the modest increase in supply following a policy meeting held via videoconference.

The Biden administration had held out hopes that its diplomatic overtures to the de facto Saudi ruler — Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman — would yield a bigger boost in supply.

Americans consumed an average of 19.78 million barrels of oil per day in 2021, according to the US Energy Information Administration — meaning Wednesday’s production increase would meet between seven and seven-and-a-half minutes’ worth of nationwide demand.

  1. Drill, baby, drill.
    Otherwise, you wait for the crumbs to fall off the table.
    Biden is out of gas on the side of the road, A good Samaritan pulls up and offers a ride, but JB looks over and sees a Trump, NRA or DeSantis sticker and waves off the helper, concerned how it will look.

    That is our nation today.
