Personal Virtue, Revisited (or, Hell Freezes Over)

Personal Virtue, Revisited (or, Hell Freezes Over)

Will the media even comment on the latest Bush Administration flip-flop?

"Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue, but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy." - Dick Cheney, May 1, 2001

"We can all pitch in by being better conservers." - George Bush, Sep. 26, 2005

Of course, I'm in favor of energy conservation, and ordinarily, I'd be glad that Bush has flip-flopped on this one. But knowing this gang, these are just empty words, without the force of laws or regulations behind them - and a bit of fig-leaf for what will undoubtedly be attempted giveaways to oil refiners.
