Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Hillary Clinton, ever the opportunist decided to implicitly blame the Bush administration for the multi-state blackouts on Thursday. According to the CNN transcript, Mrs. Clinton, on Larry King Live, we have the following bit of wisdom:

KING: Senator Clinton, is the federal government on top of this or not?

CLINTON: Well, Larry, I agree with Governor Davis and I know Governor Richardson is very knowledgeable about this as well, that we just haven't made the kind of national investments that we need, particularly in the transmission system. I happen to think that making sure we have a reliable, affordable system of energy is a national priority. And I don't think that this administration sees it that way. They have continued to try to push deregulation and privatization, and to try to undo a lot of the systems in changes that many of us thought were important and necessary that we tried to work on during the Clinton administration under Secretary Richardson's leadership. And frankly to throw in a lot of roadblocks in the way of Governor Davis, when he tried to clean up some of the problems that he had with the manipulation of the energy markets by Enron and others. So, no, I don't think the federal administration under this president is really focused on making sure we don't have these problems in the future.

So there you have it. Bush is to blame. Thus saith the Hilderbeast.

Incidentally, my cohort-in-blogging SKB, often one for liberal punditry, disagrees with the above assertion.
