    Default Bush vs. Bush?

    Hmmm, I wonder what's gonna happen here...


    Newsweek
    Oct. 10, 2005 issue - Amid worries over rising fuel costs, congressional Republicans are pressing for a vote as early as this week to roll back a moratorium on oil and gas exploration off the nation's coasts. The move could prompt a showdown between President George W. Bush, whose administration is pressing for coastal oil exploration, and his brother Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who opposes offshore drilling in his state.

    Last week the House Resources Committee approved legislation that would immediately lift a ban on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, other coastal waters and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Although the bill would let coastal states maintain a buffer zone for oil rigs, an amendment would allow natural-gas drilling to come within five miles of the Florida coast. Governor Bush opposes the bill for fear that it could "encourage drilling in protected areas." A senior administration official in Washington, who requested anonymity due to the delicate subject matter, tells NEWSWEEK, "It's something that we are reviewing." Neither Jeb Bush's office nor the White House would say if the governor had recently discussed the issue with the president. Yet some opponents of the plan worry that oil may be thicker than blood when it comes to the governor's clout. "The president is respectful of Jeb's position," says Rep. Mark Foley, a Florida Republican who opposes offshore drilling. "But this is a nation of 50 states. You have to make the best decision for everybody, not just one state."

    doesn't matter where the oil comes from if we don't have the refineries to process it.

    This isn't the only thing the brothers are at odds about right now. Big Bro George wants to gives first response after a diseaster to the Feds to aviod what happened again in NO since that Gov waited almost 3 days to call and ask for help and the Feds are catching all kinds of hell for not helping sooner. Lil Bro Jed is saying no way, we did just fine last year and had the common sense to ask for help right way like you are supposed to. We also had/have our ducks in a row regarding diseasters. Sure we will need help in the face of something like this, but we work on these responses all the time. After Rita they again are going to update the local/state responses to take them to an even higher level.

    I agree.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    My money's on Jeb.

    My guess is that one of the reasons Bush is so fucked up is due to the numerous nuggies he received from Jeb growing up. If you look at the way he walks, it's obvious that Jeb is also the master of the atomic wedgie.

    Don't fuck with Jeb.
