The lord will giveth! Hallelujah!

Mr. President,
A man of faith that's what you are all right and your actions prove it. I have seen the light myself, so I see the basis of your recent decision to reduce the budget of government-funded research on fuel efficiency. It is in the Bible.
John 2:1-11
2:1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2:2 Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 2:3 When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." 2:4 And Jesus said to her, "Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come." 2:5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 2:6 Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 2:7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 2:8 He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward." So they took it. 2:9 When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom 2:10 and said to him, "Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now." 2:11 Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

It just goes to show you somehow your God can and will provide us with oil just like he did at the wedding in Cana except he will turn water into oil not wine. This is what he told you right?

You believe God will soon change a considerable amount of our polluted water with high concentrations of mercury into high grade sweet crude Texas Tea.

Everything will be as it should be, sayeth your lord.
Since God will do this soon you have all the moral justification to dump some of the most efficient oil replacement technologies programs the government ever had.

According to a Christian Science Monitor
article you just cut more than a dozen efficiency improvement projects.

I could see trimming the budget on obviously wasteful adventures, but these programs are not wasteful. One US Energy Department program developed a technology which saved the country 122 million barrels of oil worth $9 billion in 2004. Proponents claim this small department saves the nation $7 for every dollar it spends. So how do you rationalize cutting this program by 33 per cent?
I have to believe your God's will is involved here.

This is one of a handful of energy-efficient projects that you plan to trim by $ 115 million. "Tough choices had to be made, and we had to realign priorities," writes Christina Kielich, a DOE spokeswoman in an e-mail. "Some programs within the energy- efficiency budget have reached a point to be considered mature technologies" that require less funding.

Another energy-efficiency program to be cut is the "Heavy Vehicle Propulsion and Ancillary Subsystems." It is a fancy name for a simple idea; develop a means to improve the fuel efficiency of large trucks. All the money for this program was eliminated in your 2007 budget request.

The latest Energy Department's you proposed for 2007 budget will cut $152 million from this year's budget for the Department of Energy
Industrial Technologies Program.

The argument you present is that the private sector should handle these programs, not the government. Jerry Taylor, director of natural resource studies for the Cato Institute claims "These are subsidies that qualify as corporate welfare."

Well hell we can't have corporate welfare, farm subsidies well ok, oil company incentives well maybe, but by God we cannot and will not provide research for improving gas milage or reduce our dependence on oil, that's interfering with God's work!

If you extend this logic to other government programs private enterprise should take over all government research. I am surprised you didn't say the church, and other charities should also take over this responsibility since the lord will provide us our oil soon it might be the right hook.

Note: If you publicize the water into oil prophecy you can also bring in your hard-core bible-thumpers.
If I were a suspicious person, I would think you are killing proven oil-saving programs to defer any real improvements while maximizing oil company profits. I know; I'm going to burn in hell.

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.
We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.
