During his two terms as Texas governor, Bush gutted the enviromental laws and packed the regulatory boards with oil and chemical industry big wigs, many of whom came from Enron. As a result, I live in the most polluted state in the country. The term "the Enroning of America" fits Bush and his gang to a t. The public just seemed unconcerned that they were electing the current product of a family that has made a career of being aw-shucks frontmen for the oil industry. Every action he has undertaken, when it concerned energy, was done for the benefit of the oil companies. For god sakes, he picks Cheney, the biggest oil bagman in history, as his running mate, and no one notices. Now that he and Cheney are nearing the end of their terms, their rape will know no bounds. The lack of a conscientious energy policy has been on purpose, and borders on treason. Oil will hit $200 a barrell before they leave office, mark my word. I'd also bet the Saudi King got his cock sucked right after he did his phony show.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
