"Problem is, we get oil from some parts of the world and they simply don't like us. The more dependent we are on that type of energy, the less likely it will be that we are able to compete and so people can have good paying jobs." --George Bush
So there ya go, America--you're using so much of the oil that's made the Bush and Cheney families filthy rich, that now the good paying jobs will go to someone in those places full of people who simply don't like us. You'll have your 'oil addiction' to blame, but don't blame George or those good folks at BP.
There's so much hypocritical propaganda in this speech, my keyboard is freezing up with derision. As a Child of the Revolution, you may love America as MUCH as I do, but you do not love her more. And George Bush and his ilk don't love her at all.
You don't cheat and steal from a country you love. You don't undermine in every way possible what or whom you love. And you don't try to make black into white and white black if you're on the up-and-up just to hang onto your ill-gotten power with an eye toward world domination...and further line your filthy pockets in the process.
"Some parts of the world simply don't like us"? Most parts of the world hate us for complex reasons, all of which we have brought on ourselves with our meddling, our bombs, and our betrayals. We have shoved our beliefs and Our Best Interests down their throats and expected them to like it because it was the great America calling.
Now they're shoving back, and George goes on to say, "MY MESSAGE TO THE WORLD is this: just treat us as we treat you."
Uh-oh. Bad choice of words, Sparkie...you couldn't seriously want them to do that.
Bush Warns on Foreign Oil Dependence to promote the ethanol lobby, and even more to the point, to neutralize Americans' opposition to nuclear proliferation and plant building--in spite of the fact that we've got more nuclear waste now than we know what to (safely) do with.
So labor on George, catapultin' that propaganda on Labor Day, and threatening American "good paying jobs" as if their loss is our fault for depending on the only energy source we've had available--and whose fault would that be?
