go to $9/gal, then one thing is for sure.
No current politician or bureaucrat will still have their jobs.

The public will not sit for it.
The ONLY reason that things are going up in cost is because of poor gov't policies. If our monetary policy was sound, and we quit running around starting wars everywhere, none of these problems would exist.

I think this is the message that the article was trying to convey, "No current politician or bureaucrat will still have their jobs," so if Romney gets the nomination and Obama beats him in the general election, the GOP will blame Ron Paul and his supporters for not voting for Mittens to get Obama out of office; thereby fracturing the GOP even more.
