Bush lies in SOTU on commitment to reduce US dependence on oil

He lied or as some might say "misled us". Go figure.

Administration backs off Bush's vow to reduce Mideast oil imports

Link.


But, no - it's worse than you think. See todays NYTimes:
The Energy Department will begin laying off researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in the next week or two because of cuts to its budget.

A veteran researcher said the staff had been told that the cuts would be concentrated among researchers in wind and biomass, which includes ethanol. Those are two of the technologies that Mr. Bush cited on Tuesday night as holding the promise to replace part of the nation's oil imports.
