I was channel surfing and stopped at C-Span for a moment. They had a very effiminate sounding California male who was talking about how energy prices were so outrageous in Kali and was "absolutely flabbergasted" that Bush and Cheney said that California got themselves into this mess, they should get themselves out. They voted in the politicos who implemented so many socialist ideas and the absolutely screwed up deregulation they have and they expect the Feds to bail them out. If Clinton had said the same thing, they would have understood, but that would not have been the case. He would have "felt their pain" and bailed them out.

It couldn't [i]possibly[/i] be the wonderful bill clintoon who held the reins and turned the knobs of the economy for the last eight years. It [b]must[/b] be that new Republican who just got here.

The problem is their socialist democrats in California, starting with Grey Davis and bubbling through the legislature. But of course the liberal communities of california are so invested intheir liberal politicians that they cannot accept that their screwed up political landscape caused their energy problem...that and the fact that it is real hard to support an exploding population's energy needs when you won't allow the energy corporations to build new generators. They are clueless.

by not bailing out kali, two things came into play: the sheeple had to take responsibility for their actions - voting in, and continuing to vote in, the marxist socialists that got them into that mess and because they had to try to fix the problems themselves, their march toward marxist socialism was slowed and thrown off schedule. thus, it is obviously the fault of GW.

Simple: They're fucking stupid! Just like most Americans. Keep in mind there was no deregulation to begin with. They used that term as a political ploy. If the energy market was "deregulated", there would have been no shortages and people would have gotten their power at a lower price than what they paid for in California during the so-called "crisis". As an aside, Bush is just as socialist as Gov. GAY Davis. Why? Instead of eliminating regulatory laws, instead he puts Cheney in charge of a commission where the federal government would direct a national energy policy, as if we exist in some sort of planned economy....wait, maybe we do. I was happy to know that Bush will determine what energy will be made available for us rather than my pocket book and my own choices. themao [chainsawkill]
