Two Birds

White House Advisor Karl Rove's shrewd move back into matters purely political may have already stuck gold for the GOP, as President Bush announced a new Administration campaign designed to ease pressure on the nation's oil supply while preserving its supply of illegal alien labor.

President Bush estimates the amount of oil required for a short term visa.

Under the new "Oil for Amnesty" plan, otherwise illegal aliens from Mexico and other oil-rich Central and South American countries would be granted temporary visas, the length of which would be directly tied to the amount of oil they are able to bring with them from their home countries.

Following the official announcement, Mexican President Vincente Fox was among the first to take advantage of the program.

Oil prices fell immediately after Bush's speech.

Hey, that TexasRainmaker is usually on top of it. Today, his comments really said what a lot of us are saying but we don't always have a vehicle for our opinions--except for blogs, bless em'.
