Do you think Obama will end US oil dependence?


Recommended Posts

Well. What do you think? Can President Obama end US oil dependence?

"It will be the policy of my administration to reverse our dependence on foreign oil while building a new energy economy that will create millions of jobs"

–Barack Obama

"To keep our economy growing, we also need reliable supplies of affordable, environmentally responsible energy. Nearly four years ago, I submitted a comprehensive energy strategy that encourages conservation, alternative sources, a modernized electricity grid, and more production here at home, including safe, clean nuclear energy. My Clear Skies legislation will cut power plant pollution and improve the health of our citizens. And my budget provides strong funding for leading-edge technology — from hydrogen-fueled cars, to clean coal, to renewable sources such as ethanol. Four years of debate is enough — I urge Congress to pass legislation that makes America more secure and less dependent on foreign energy."

–George W. Bush

"Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977, never."

–Jimmy Carter

"We will never again permit any foreign nation to have Uncle Sam over a barrel of oil."

–Gerald Ford.

"Let this be our national goal: At the end of this decade, in the year 1980, the United States will not be dependent on any other country for the energy we need to provide our jobs, to heat our homes, and to keep our transportation moving."

–Richard Nixon
