    The first time I heard anyone propose a program to make American Energy Independent was a speech given by Richard Nixon in 1973. Almost every president since then has proposed one. And we are more dependent than ever. And that isn't a bad thing.
    And no, sorry, I am at work and cant watch the video.

    Seriously guys, when you do get a chance watch the video. It does take a few minutes to watch but is worth it all the way to the end. I'm not kidding. If you appreciate the hutzpah and irony of politics, you can't help but just shake your head and appreciate it. Okay, it's supposed to generate laughs. But I swear it is the most educational thing I've seen on the subject this year.

    And Rabbi, it is probably a clip from that 1973 speech that is one of the features in the video. :)
