Incompetent incoherence

President Discusses Hurricane Effects on Energy Supply:
Two other points I want to make is, one, we can all pitch in by using -- by being better conservers of energy. I mean, people just need to recognize that the storms have caused disruption and that if they're able to maybe not drive when they -- on a trip that's not essential, that would helpful. The federal government can help, and I've directed the federal agencies nationwide -- and here's some ways we can help. We can curtail nonessential travel. If it makes sense for the citizen out there to curtail nonessential travel, it darn sure makes sense for federal employees. We can encourage employees to carpool or use mass transit. And we can shift peak electricity use to off-peak hours. There's ways for the federal government to lead when it comes to conservation.
I'm sorry, but the man is simply incoherent.
It is clear that when you're dependent upon natural gas and/or hydrocarbons to fuel your economy and that supply gets disrupted, we need alternative sources of energy. And that's why I believe so strongly in nuclear power. And so we've got a chance, once again, to assess where we are as a country when it comes to energy and do something about it. And I look forward to working with Congress to do just that.
Bzzt! You had a chance doofus, but instead of addressing the energy issues facing the nation, you and Darth Cheney chose instead to line the pockets of your good ol' boys in the oil biz. It isn't as if the energy crisis facing the nation is new, it's been a gathering threat for years and yet BushCo chose to either ignore it or exacerbate it with its policies.
