State of the Union thoughts

Has Bush been thinking fondly of his days debating "the issues" with John Kerry?

Compare:
1.) http://www.ontheissues.org/John_Kerry.htm#Energy_+_Oil
with
2.) ""Here we have a serious problem: America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world," the former oil executive said. (from CNN article)

Hmm. I wonder how Mr. Bush plans to pay for these "Advanced Energy" initiatives, given the billions of dollars in spending and revenue cuts his Administration has pushed. Does this mean less funding for the war in Iraq? Or less recovery money for the Gulf Coast? Where's the money going to come from? And why are we now stealing planks from our opposition's platform?

In local news, Steve Sviggum called a DFL legislative leader "very liberal." I wonder if people notice that every time a DFLer's name comes up, the Republican leadership's response is "he/she/it is very liberal and out of the mainstream." *Snore*. That may have worked six years ago, but no longer. Ordinary people don't care what you think about your opponents anymore. But by all means, keep it up.

That turned much more snarky than I wanted it to be. Perhaps waking up at 5:30 for an early day had some effect. No matter.
