Might it be that the relationship in question is that between us, the people, and "them," the Washington establishment, and that by hammering the president's polls when gas prices are high, we let "them" know that this is what we care about?

Or, as Bacevich has said, we want cheap goods, cheap oil, and cheap credit, and they'd best go get them for us if they know what's good for them. By this means we teach them that "the American way of life is not up for negotiation."
