From Denny: Stewart pointed out that President Obama is actually not the first president trying to wean America off our oil dependence. So, Stewart went off on a little history lesson tour starting with Tricky Dick Nixon. To date there have been eight presidents, count them, eight presidents trying to get across to us we have to get serious about moving America toward a non-petroleum based future. We must become independent of fossil fuels. Hmmm... how about telling that to the oil and gas industry that buys up new alternative energy patents so the public never sees them - and so we are forced to continue buying fossil fuels. Anyone see the obvious connection here?
