Blame all companies and blame someone else I mean it if it's always oil companies tax the rich.
And have the Republicans as I think you did -- -- to be MIA.
Well it's very tough for Republicans to argue that oil companies should get tax breaks it's a politically it's a PR loser it's a political winner for Obama to do that but here would sell laughable I -- -- laughed -- during part of -- speech.
