What a douchebag

"WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump. He also halted for the summer the purchase of crude oil for the government's emergency reserve. Bush also announced steps to ease environmental standards governing fuel grades."

In the same speech he talks about how important it is we get off our addiction to oil because of its high emissions, and reliance on foreign sources. He suggests we move forward on ethanol (which, by the way, uses so much water in processing it may not be worth it), and hydrogen cars. Mixed signals if I ever saw them -- "fuck the environment to make gas cheaper!" "I want to save the environment with magic cars!"
