Bush: Conserve as I say, not as I do.

On Bush's seventh day trip/photo op to Gulf States, the president urged personal energy conservation: "We can all pitch in...by being better conservers of energy.  I mean, people just need to recognize that the storms have caused disruption and that if they're able to maybe not drive...on a trip that's not essential, that would be helpful." Interesting admonition considering Bush's lifelong oil links, a track record opposing smart energy policies, and—most ironic of all—the fact that his call came during a plane ride that burned up 11,437 gallons of gasoline.
