Ever wonder who is getting rich in the Bush Whitehouse Years? Take a look at this news article out this morning, and it'll solve the mystery.

Exxon Mobil Profit Soars on Energy Prices

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), the world's largest publicly traded oil company, on Thursday said its quarterly earnings surged 39 percent on record oil prices, higher production and its best refining and marketing results in 13 years.

The Irving, Texas-based company said second-quarter net income rose to $5.79 billion, or 88 cents a share, in the period, from $4.17 billion, or 62 cents, in the year-ago quarter.

Yep, looks like good years for the oil companies. (sigh)

More later today, if I have time.
