I had the opportunity to interview President Bush this morning! We mostly spoke about gas prices. Although dropping in recent weeks, energy prices are still taking a big bite out of my budget. Mr. Bush made a lot of sense on the subject, so I'm just going to let him speak for himself.

Don't we all, G.C. Don't we all.
(I can't figure out how to change the direction a person is looking, even with the tools available in Photoshop's 'transform' menu. If anyone knows how to do it well, please comment or email me. Until then, I'll look for a better angled view of Bush to corrupt :) . Check out this link
to my liberal friend. He's liberal, but he uses reasoning just like the rest of us! I'm trying to raise awareness of people like him to replace Kos and Atrios, so we can have meaningful dialogue between the parties.)
