A Green Bush

I have to wonder if this might muzzle Al Gore.

Bush: U.S. on Verge of Energy Breakthrough

Saying the nation is on the verge of technological breakthroughs that would "startle" most Americans, President Bush on Monday outlined his energy proposals to help wean the country off foreign oil.

Well, fill us in for goodness sakes!

Why must the press include statements like the following?

Energy conservation groups and environmentalists say they're pleased that the president, a former oil man in Texas, is stressing alternative sources of energy, but they contend his proposals don't go far enough. They say the administration must consider greater fuel-efficiency standards for cars, and some economists believe it's best to increase the gas tax to force consumers to change their driving habits.

Some economists, no doubt, believe it's best not to increase the gas tax. If they have nothing to say, I really wish the media would leave these agenda driven comments out.

"We're on the edge of some amazing breakthroughs breakthroughs all aimed at enhancing our national security and our economic security and the quality of life of the folks who live here in the United States."
