  •  Bush May Address the Country (none)
    From Drudge Report (yeah, I know)

    President Bush is considering an address to the nation asking citizens to conserve energy, a top White House says.

    Bush ordered the release of oil from federal petroleum reserves to help refiners affected by Hurricane Katrina.

    Bush returned to Washington on Wednesday to oversee the federal response to the historic disaster. He plans to coordinate federal efforts, across more than a dozen agencies, to assist hurricane victims.

    "Still undecided is whether or not to call for a nationwide effort to reduce energy consumption during this emergency," a top Bush source explains. "It is seriously being considered."

    •  energy conservation? (none)
      wow, so Bush is finally doing what has been told to do.

      my prediction:

      -panic gasoline buying, price spike.

    •  Interesting (none)
      How WE have to sacrifice now because HE didn't have the foresight to realize that cutting funds to that region was dangerous to our economy and to this country's energy.

      I'm sick when I think how much he focused on Iraq while he ignored our own country.

      I truly hate this man....
