There's A Word For This...

Man, I don't know what it is with this President. It's just like flip:

In 2001, Vice President Dick Cheney said, "Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue, but it cannot be the basis of a sound energy policy." Also that year, Ari Fleischer, then Mr. Bush's press secretary, responded to a question about reducing American energy consumption by saying "that's a big no."

"The president believes that it's an American way of life," Mr. Fleischer said.

And flop:

With fears mounting that high energy costs will crimp economic growth, President Bush called on Americans yesterday to conserve gasoline by driving less. He also issued a directive for all federal agencies to cut their own energy use and to encourage employees to use public transportation.

"We can all pitch in," Mr. Bush said. "People just need to recognize that the storms have caused disruption," he added, and that if Americans are able to avoid going "on a trip that's not essential, that would be helpful."

Nice to see him end up on the right side, at least. Now, if the no-pain President could cajole his corporate sponsors into letting him raise CAFE standards, I might even register an uptick of respect for the guy.

Comments

You can say that conservation is not a good thing to base a sound energy policy on, and still think it is appropriate to take measures to conserve as a response to a discrete disruption of supplies.

One could disagree with either of those responses to seperate problems, but they are not necessarily inconsistant.

I expect that you already know that however.

I couldn't get over how awkward Bush sounded. Pardon the speculation, but it was as if he recognized that this was a very different stance from what his administration's said for the past 4+ years. Or if you want to get snarky, maybe he was wondering if Cheney would be mad at him.

Dave Justus: You've shown how the two stances can be reconciled, but that hasn't been made explicit by the Administration. The current "disruption of supplies" is related to the worldwide supply/demand crunch and it's unclear how ante the status quo will be. When disruptions become common, the difference between policy and a temporary call for conservation shrinks and eventuall becomes moot.

Disruptions from hurricanes are NOT related to a world-wide supply/demand crunch.

Current gas prices post hurricane are much more related to refining capacity that they are to the price of oil.

Bottom line is a growing economy will require energy. An energy plan that focuses on how to deal with not having it, rather that on how to get it, will be an energy plan for a shrinking economy. Thats the bottom line.

I don't like everything about the Bush energy plan, but those that pretend if we just abandon our SUVs or invest in some mythical alternative supply everything will be ok are not reality based.
