    did anyone catch the press conference earlier this week? about Harriet Miers...

    Bush talks briefly about energy, and the need to build more refineries to combat the supply issues we currently have....

    here's a couple of snippets that really make me wonder...taken from the White House transcripts http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/10/20051004-1.html

    He's a profound "Thinker" allright ... fortunately for us, he's also highly skilled in the verbal arena. :)

    So the Preisdent is in a meeting with his advisors and they are going over what happened the day before and the secretary of defence says "Sir yesterday 3 Brazilian Soldiers were killed..." and the President jumps up and looks like he just saw a ghost...he is freaking out saying stuff like "how could this happen!?" and "What are we going to tell the press???"
    Everyone looks at each other and says "President what is the big deal?" he replies by saying "Well, how many is a Brazilian?"

    When I saw that the President's thoughts on energy were going to be described, I thought that he might be recommending Geritol, some vitamins, or something a little stronger.

    I believe that the quote above has to be incorrect--the President has never said Nuclear, since he prefers to talk about Nucular power. It does seem odd that solar-powered homes are far off in the distance but I haven't seen but a handful of examples. Certainly, with the cost overruns in government spending, they could afford to convert the Capitol building to use solar energy. If the power runs out, it wouldn't be the first time that Congress had worked in the dark.

    That is a clever post! It seems strange that the three branches of government were supposed to be equal... now it seems they are all there only to do the bidding of the White House.
