"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Bush speech�to tackle kitchen table concerns - Jan 31, 2006: "President Bush will call for new technology to break U.S. addiction to oil, according to excerpts of his State of the Union speech released by the White House."

Well the above is in the "Breaking News" banner at CNN.com. It will be interesting to see what he has to say on that issue. We've heard this talk from politicians for an awful long time and we have yet to see any truly new development, excluding alt-fuel, gas-electric etc. Both are good, but are just the tip of the iceburg as to what can be done I'm sure.

I wonder what abandoning (close to impossible) oil would effect the world economy? What if just the U.S. could back out and not import, what would the ramifications be? These seem to be questions/issues that are never addressed by politicians; I happen to be thinking John Kerry at the moment because he is the true jack*ss to me after his "I'll say anything" run for the presidency.

I mean truly, what if tomorrow we had an alternative to oil? What would the state of the middle east be then? Would it be our fault? Would we be hated more?

Oil is all they have going for themselves and the Saudis and others are bathing themselves with the profits. What would happen in the street if they couldn't even line their own pockets?
