Listen to this crap from an AP article:
On Tuesday, Bush plans to visit the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., to talk about speeding the development of biofuels.
The lab, with a looming $28 million budget shortfall, had announced it was cutting its staff by 32 people, including eight researchers. But in advance of Bush’s visit, Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman over the weekend directed the transfer of $5 million to the private contractor that runs the lab, so the jobs can be saved.
Okay, on the one hand, 8 research jobs were saved at the Reneweable Energy lab. On the other, we’ve got a president, who used to be IN the energy industry (and from all accounts was not a stellar performer) telling us that America is being held “hostage” to foreign countries and taking photo-op visits to research labs that his own Administration isn’t funding because there’s no money BECAUSE OF THE WAR IN IRAQ!!!
I’d just like to point out, once again: we were all lied to by our elected officials.
THERE NEVER WERE ANY WEAPONS
And the punishment for lying to the American people? They re-elect you.
I don’t blame W. Everyone knew he was an idiot. I blame those who knowingly voted for an idiot.
