Obama’s comprehensive New Energy for America plan will:
• Provide short‐term relief to American families facing pain at the pump
Ensure 10 percent of our electricity comes from renewable sources by 2012, and 25 percent by 2025
Renewable resources (solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric, biomass, and waste) currently provide nearly 12 percent of the Nation's electricity supply.
• Within 10 years save more oil than we currently import from the Middle East and Venezuela combined
Help create five million new jobs by strategically investing $150 billion over the next ten years to catalyze private efforts to build a clean energy future.
• Put 1 million Plug‐In Hybrid cars – cars that can get up to 150 miles per gallon – on the road by 2015, cars that we will work to make sure are built here in America
Barack Obama will require oil companies to take a reasonable share of their record‐breaking windfall profits and use it to provide direct relief worth $500 for an individual and $1,000 for a married couple.

I have lived long enough to see a lot of presidents come and go. They all have an agenda and all hoped to win the seat, so will go to any lengths to say anything to get the vote. Remember: they lie! This applies to both candidates now.
When I was young it was far easier to believe what an authority said as I still believed in fairy dust! I wanted to believe what they said. Do you know how many lies one can hear in over 50 years of life?
A good assignment if anyone cares to do it would be to; go back to past presidential campaigns and see how many promises were actually kept by a president. Who had unequivocally the best score? Which party actually achieved the most...unequivocally?
Anyone with any amount of charisma can lie, people do it all the time! I now judge everyone and everything by this criteria: they look good, they may sound good, but do they "feel" right? Rarely am I wrong if I view things or people this way.
It is also important to remember that the president only has so much power. They can promise things till they are blue in the face (or until pigs fly) and it doesn't mean much, if they can't get it past. Or if the powers behind them won't let it!!
