Bush blames India’s Prosperity for Rise of Food Prices In the U.S.

People like Bush are always looking for stupid reasons to justify their incompetence and point fingers elsewhere, even thousands of miles away… It is ridiculous to say that the food prices in the U.S. is rising because people in India are having a better standard of living and since they are eating better, it is affecting the ability of the Americans to eat their huge portions and continue with their colossal wastage of resources .

The US President George W Bush also vindicated remarks given by the Secretary of State; Condoleezza Rice a few days back on the rising food prices, blaming India and China, that improvement in dietary habits of Indian middle class has been responsible for rising food prices.

The US President George W Bush explained the reasons for rising food prices at a function in Maryland Heights in Missouri, on Friday said “Just as an interesting thought for you, there are 350 million people in India who are classified as middle class. That’s bigger than America. Their middle class is larger than our entire population.”
”When you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food, and so demand is high, and that causes the price to go up” Bush added.

It is a well known fact that the people in the U.S. are the major consumers of the world and it is no different when it comes to food too. They are obese and unhealthy people who consume gluttonus amounts of super size portions and eat like there is no tomorrow. People around the world live on meager rationed food and in some countries like Haiti and Africa children eat mud cakes, even the so called poor in the U.S. have food banks and food stamps that allow them to have well stocked refrigerators. What Bush is implying is that people around the world should continue to suffer so that people in the U.S. can continue with life stlyes only most people can dream of in other parts of the world.

President Bush who is rich beyond a common man’s imagination is totally not in touch with reality and ignorant of the life styles of people around the world. Maybe he should advice the people in the U.S. not to waste so much food and cut down on the amount they eat, which will lower the costs of medical care and help everyone appreciate the meaning of not being “fatted”.

Also food prices continue to rise around the world, even in India people over there too find it real hard to keep up with the rise in food costs especially with no assistance programs like food banks, subsidies and food stamps. The so called “middle class” as Bush claims is facing the same plight that people in the U.S. are facing. Condoleezza Rice and Bush make these ridiculous statements and sound like they personally have experienced and witnessed the consumption patterns of the middle class in India.
