For all the people who criticized the Bush Administration for laxing air quality standards, it appears Bush's plan is better for the environment

When all factories in the US are closed and no one can afford to drive because gas is $10 a gallon, America's air will be more pristine than when the Indians were in control

The jobs being lost is an ongoing longterm side effect of NAFTA. The sucking sound Ross Perot warned everybody about definitely was real. Thank Billy Clinton for that.

As for gas prices, those are controlled by the world market, and the US cannot control OPEC no matter how hard they try.

I will however give Bush a lot of credit for the pitiful state of America's economy, our outrageous spending on a war that has no true end in sight, and a dollar that is still shrinking. That he can take full credit for without any credit being shared with Clinton.

Lets also keep in mind that Clinton and Gore both refused to push the Kyoto Treaty without meaningful participation by developing countries. China has already caught and passed us with emissions, and India is working hard towards it as well. I hope we NEVER sign any treaties that are supposed to fight the global warming boogeyman. Its scaremongering and political posturing, that is all.

So there is a method to the madness?

Ummm you can't blame bush for gas prices. Yes part of it is people bidding up prices. But for the most part, the stuff is not renewable. As peak oil is realized, it becomes more labor intensive to get out of the ground so that helps to drive up price. Another fact is the weakening of the dollar. But that has to do with lax financial regulations and a housing bubble bust. That has more to do with Sir Greenspan than Bush though.

Either way your right, this economy is darn shore going to get people out of cars. I made a packet with myself that when gas hits 4 a gallon I will be parking my car and taking the bus.
