WASHINGTON – President Bush is offering to make closed military bases available for new oil refineries and will ask Congress to provide a “risk insurance” to the nuclear industry against regulatory delays to spur construction of new nuclear power plants, senior administration officials said Tuesday.

Read any account of Bush speaking about, or acting on energy matters, and you will find one core concept that he will NEVER abandon.

Welfare. Welfare for energy companies. That energy bill last week? 8 billion in “gimmie” cash to his former partners and buddies in the oil industry. Now this idiot idea to turn over unused military bases to place new refineries on, plus “risk insurance”. Bite me, you corrupt stooge.
