Conservation Measures Cut from Budget

Typical of Bush who had the audacity to say 'we're addicted to oil,' but then decided to cut one of the most effective conservation programs in history.

"A few years ago, a little-known U.S. Energy Department program helped produce a design technology for lightweight cars and trucks that in 2004 alone saved the nation 122 million barrels of oil, or about $9 billion. Even without that breakthrough, the tiny Industrial Technologies Program routinely saves the United States $7 worth of energy for each dollar it spends, proponents say. So, with energy prices spiking and President Bush pushing for more energy research, the ITP would seem a natural candidate for more funding. In fact, its budget is set to get chopped by a third from its 2005 level. It's one of more than a dozen energy-efficiency efforts that the Energy Department plans to trim or eliminate in a $115 million cost-saving move. "

Harvard Business School Admits Bush's Personal Assistant: a college dropout

Affirmative action Bush-style. Another reason to seriously question the merits of the 'ivy leagues.'

"Though it is rare for HBS—or any other professional or graduate school—to admit a student who does not have an undergraduate degree, admissions officers made an exception for Blake Gottesman, who for four years has served as special assistant and personal aide to Bush. "
