for drilling in Alaska. Offering $100 to every American in a bill which also approves drilling in Alaska.

Everyone has a price. Mine is a bit higher than that.

We are running a deficit and they want to give money away. It's foolish. The withholding from the emergency deposits is also shortsighted - the money it's saving right now is nominal, and it means there will be that much less reserve should a real emergency occur.

From the 4/25 telephone briefing by Al Hubbard, National Economic Council Director, on the President's Four-Point Energy Plan

Q Just to follow up, though, on one element of that point. The President made the point that had ANWR been approved ten years ago, you'd get about a million barrels a day. Had the Iraq production resumed to the level that had been projected before the war, how much would that contribute today?

DIRECTOR HUBBARD: I actually don't know the precise answer to that. What's really most important, though, is that we've become less reliable on overseas sources of crude oil and other sources of energy, and more reliant on energy from within our 50 states [sic].

Q You have no estimate, though, about what Iraqi production could be?

DIRECTOR HUBBARD: I do not have it.

MR. HENNESSEY: We can get back to you.

DIRECTOR HUBBARD: Yes, we can get back to you with that, or --

Q That would be useful. I mean, just -- obviously, since the President has chosen one interesting example in ANWR, the Iraq one would be an interesting one to compare it to, whether that would be more or less than a billion -- a million a day.

DIRECTOR HUBBARD: Yes, we will have to get back to you on that.

This is completely misfiled and belongs in pollitical ranting and not here, so I'm going to be reporting this message.

Having said that, I'll be a teensy bit hypocritical and offer a small comment:

a) it's good to see that you can only pull the wool over the eyes of Americans a few dozen times before they finally catch on. I was beginning to think they never would.

b) Desperation tactics rarely work.

c) Anyone here remember New Orleans? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
