Bush was against energy conservation... before he was for it


What? Another flip flop?

White House Press Briefing with Ari Fleischer, 5/7/01:


QUESTION: Does the President believe that, given the amount of energy Americans consume per capita, how much it exceeds any other citizen in any other country in the world, does the President believe we need to correct our lifestyles to address the energy problem?

FLEISCHER (Flip): That's a big no. The President believes that it's an American way of life. LISTEN HERE


White House Press Briefing with Scott McClellan, 9/26/05:

MCCLELLAN (Flop): [T]here are steps that... or initiatives that the President has outlined that are important steps that we can take to reduce our dependence on foreign sources of energy. This has been a high priority for the President from day one.

My little fashion tip to the White House: The white socks are too much, especially after Labor Day. So lose the socks -- with the flip flops or the flight suit. Too many people know they're hiding what's already gummed up with crude.

Hi Alex, thanks for the visit. Y'all come back, ya hear?

Re the shrub, you're right of course: criminally negligent, criminially MIA, criminally motivated, criminally sociopathic....

We need a new wing at Camp Cupcake making room for W., Rovie, Cheney, Rummy, Condi, DeLay, Frist, et al. Put them in charge of dirty laundry so their only thrill will come from scrubbing women's undies.
