"Who's to blame for energy woes?"

Denver Post Column - Richard Cohen
reprinted from the Washington Post

Cohen - get this - blames Ronald Reagan for the price of gas today.

Cohen says - get this - that Jimmy Carter had the right plan all along.

Carter's plan was for all of us to wear sweaters in the winter. I have nothing against sweaters. I own several. But it is hardly a substantial policy.

No where does Cohen even pretend to discuss the economics of supply and demand. He just discusses sweaters and Reagan's failure to wear one.

Cohen, in an effort to cut off arguments by people like me, says "This is not to say that government is the answer to all our ills."

Of course not.

But Cohen thinks it is the answer to high gas prices.

That, of course, and sweaters.
