Bush tells Congress how to write an energy bill

Bush sent a letter telling Congress what changes they can make to the energy bill so he does not veto it. Allan Hubbard wrote the letter that the White House sent to Congressional leaders (Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner) with a list of "deal-makers and deal-breakers." The energy bill does not have enough votes to make the bill veto-proof, so Congress will probably read this letter very carefully.
Bush says Congress can "reform and strengthen" CAFE but such actions should be "based on sound science, safety and cost-benefit analysis." Also, Bush does not want to see anti-trust violations against OPEC or price controls during energy emergencies. Capiche Congress?
