Always appreciated Frank Gaffney’s clear writing and arguments on behalf of a strong national defense, so read his op-ed calling for flex-fuel vehicles as a means toward energy security with some interest. It’s policy ground well-trod by James Woolsey, true, and energy autarky seems far-fetched in a globalized economy, but…well, OK. And if Gaffney is recommending “Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oil” by Robert Zubrin, we’ll at least leaf through it at the bookstore.
Again, flex-fuel vehicles as an energy panacea seems far-fetched — especially as long as the environmental movement regards even domestic oil as anathema — but Gaffney lays out the policy argument well. Until…
My guess is that President Bush could make fuel choice his most lasting, and laudable legacy if he were to mandate Flexible Fuel Vehicles via executive order, rather than wait for Congress to legislate it.
What the…? Yeah, issuing an executive order to restructure an entire sector of the economy would certainly be a legacy. Laudable if you’re a fan of dictatorships, but come on now.
