    If them: Yeah, it looks like another typical Bush photo-op tour, only this time he forgot to wear his flight suit.

    If me: Yeah, if they actually did do something about the energy situation, it would be nice... but the way they handle things is never good in the long term.  I'd rather wait for a real solution that have a politically-motivated scumbag pull something out of a hat that is a stopgap measure.

    And I have to admit, the merest possibility that Bush would be the one to earnestly push this (if it were true) stuff while the people who really care about it - and their representatives - are spinning their wheels sickens me.

    Even if he did do something great, it would be like having your life saved by Hitler and Bob Novak's secret love child.  You'd never get rid of the feeling that you were covered in more grease than Rush Limbaugh's last meal.

    I'm just really disappointed that we've been co-opted like this, and the best "our side" can come up with is, "Oh, yeah, well... people are still driving SUVs!"
