The Rolling Stone Dean interview rules!
Yea, it was pre-scream.

What do you think is George Bush's philosophy? What motivates him?

George Bush's philosophy is, "If you're rich, you deserve it, and if you're poor, you deserve it." That's not my philosophy.

2. I like this part....
You criticized the president for not standing up to Saudi Arabia. What would you do to confront the Saudis?

First of all, I'd get off foreign oil. All it means is enormous investment in renewables. Wind -- the Danes get twenty percent of all their electricity from wind. We can do something very close to that. Solar -- you've got to change the tax laws and have a massive effort to do that. Oil conservation -- if you had the same mileage requirements for SUVs and trucks as you did for the rest of the fleet, every year you'd save the entire amount of oil that's supposed to be in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.


A lot of people say that maybe we don't have much economic pressure against the Saudis. They hold billions in U.S. Treasury notes. What if they responded by threatening to liquidate their investment in our government? Wouldn't we be screwed?

Balancing the budget would help that. I mean, this president has made us much weaker than we were when we got here: $500 billion deficits as far as the eye can see is a terribly weakening thing to the economy. Both the Chinese and the Saudis, and others, hold enormous amounts of T-bills. That's a huge problem for us in an era with a declining dollar and a huge deficit. If most Americans understood what you just said, George Bush would be gone.
