Steady leadership in times of change

Flip. Flop.

They'll just cut the program in a month or so, just like they always do after Bush visits a place funded by the federal government.

You're right, this whole thing makes me sick. There's a great editorial in the Times about the budget cuts and what they'll mean over the next several years. Ironically, one of the biggest cuts is to energy research!

Just watch for the "flip" back again once Bush is safely out of town and his little "Energy Tour" is over (he was here in Michigan yesterday).

Fucking asshole. I hope nobody shows up for his appearance or they all boo him.

Seriously, you can be sure this won't be an interactive event, as the attendees are likely bitter (and attending under duress), plus they are scientists whose existence for the day is to serve as Bush's backdrop. they will know better than to believe a word of his bullshit, and he will be utterly unable to answer any possible question.

I can see it now, Bush goes into one of his "Renewable means.. that it's energy that can be renewed..." in front of a bunch of actual advance degree researchers on the subject.

Grrr.

Yep. I often get the feeling that sentence structure was the only thing the president learned in school.

He reminds me of a "Kids in the Hall" sketch where David McCullough got in trouble for his language on the job because he kept working the word "ascertain" into conversations. Bush's speech patterns are about as annoying.

I give them 24 hours after Bush leaves, tops.

True. I bet they close the speech with confetti that turns out to be pink slips.
