We know the problem; what’s the plan?

Does anyone remember President Bush stating in the State of the Union Address that America is addicted to oil? Thanks for stating the blatantly obvious. His funding for renewable fuels is at the same level as the day he took office. Bush refuses to call for even a modest increase in fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles. His latest budget funds less then half of the energy bill he himself signed into law, leaving hundreds of millions of dollars in under-funded energy proposals. Saying that America is addicted to oil without following a real plan for energy independence is like admitting to alcoholism but not doing the 12-step program. Hey Mr. President, it’s not enough to identify the challenge. We have to meet it.
