Bush,Foreign oil and Energy Proposals

   President Bush: "Every member of Congress who cares about strengthening our economy, protecting our national security and confronting climate change should support the energy initiatives I have set out. We can leave behind a cleaner and better world for our children and grandchildren."

"The need for action is clear. Republicans and Democrats both recognize these problems. We agree on the solution: We need to diversify our energy supply and make America less dependent on foreign oil."

   This is coming from a man who for the past six years has been in the pockets of the major oil companies and who has done absolutely nothing about the American's consumption of said oil.

Sen. Jeff Bingaman ( bio, voting record), D-N.M., chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, says Bush is ignoring the problem of global warming by not embracing some mandatory emission reductions. The president has made it clear he has no plans to shift away from a largely voluntary program to address climate change, continuing to oppose mandatory reductions of so-called "greenhouse" gases.

   The president is also asking Congress to give the Bush Crime Family  the authority to set the standards for automobile emissions saying that the system he has in mind would cut said emissions while still preserving choices for the consumer.

   If Bush is worried about America's dependence on foreign oil it is only because he, Cheney, and the oil companies have come up with a better plan, such as maybe investing in new, non-corn feedstocks for ethanol?

    The day this idiot gets concerned about the American's oil consumption, I'll become a Republican. That ain't going to happen anytime soon!
