WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Thursday said he wants to raise fuel-efficiency standards on automobiles, as members of both parties jockeyed for political position on the issue of rising gas prices. Bush called on Congress to give him the authority to set the standards for passenger cars sold in the United States as a means of reducing the nation's demand for gasoline.

"I encourage them to give me that authority," Bush told reporters during a visit to a service station in Biloxi, Mississippi. "It's an authority I used for light trucks, and I intend to use it wisely if Congress will give me that authority.

I'm sorry - but after giving Shrub 'the authority' in regards to Afghanistan and Iraq, hasn't Congress learned the lesson not to give up all (or any) power to this chump? I'm sure whatever decisions he'd make would only benefit his oil friends.

My favorite part is that he 'intends to use it wisely'. There are so many things wrong w/that phrase on so many levels, it is actually funny!!!
