    When the press asked Bush's spokeperson a few year's ago about energy conservation, he laughed derisively.

    Just one more place that Bush failed the American people.

    It will be nice to have a president who understands the common sense of energy conservation.

    One man can't fail the American people. Chris, have you ever read the constitution. Last time i check, we have three branches of government. Are you going to tell me that one branch was responsible for the American people when there are two others that suppose to check and balance one another. It would be nice if we have people in all branches not tainted with ties that bind their hand ("i'll donate to your campaign, but what are you going to do for me and my buddies" that we have now). Last two years, we have seen what a Democratic party would do in power of Congress. They rather look ahead at the next election and see what they can do for themselves rather than help the American.

    It's all about supply and demand is it?

    Then the demand doubled in the last few months and then was cut in half again in the last few weeks?

    Interesting theory.

    Imagine what will happen to the price if we start to exploit our own resources and change over some cars to CNG.

    Imagine if we had 60 more nukes to fuel all those Li-ion cars that will be coming on-line in the next decade.

    How can a figurehead fail anything? Presidents have no power to do anything but speak. We have two functional branches of government and one symbolic. Kind of like the British Monarchy.
