  •  Or how about that Jimmy Carter guy in 1977 (4.00)
    "We simply must balance our demand for energy with our rapidly shrinking resources. By acting now, we can control our future instead of letting the future control us...

    The most important thing about these proposals is that the alternative may be a national catastrophe. Further delay can affect our strength and our power as a nation."

    George Bush never wants to talk about conservation because in his mind that is a sign of weakness, with comparisons to Carter.

    Oh and really, I'm going to explode the next time someone talks about Reagan being a visionary.

    •  James Baker got rid of Carter (none)
      Baker made a secret deal with the Iranians so they would hold the hostages until after Reagan's inauguration, and now Carter let himself be suckered in to a voting "reform" commission with Baker?  Why did he do this?  Plenty of discussion on another diary.
    •  Don't explode (none)
      Save that energy! ;-}
