While appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens dished on everything from energy policy, to natural gas, to “green” jobs. But it was when “Morning Joe” guest Mike Barnicle asked Pickens what he would do differently to boost the economy via the energy industry, the oilman had some depressing news.
“If I was president, I’d get an energy policy for America. We’re the only country in the world without an energy policy and you use 25 percent of the oil. We’re insane,” Pickens said. “And we have resources in America that we could have an energy policy.”
But what about energy independence?

Every President campaigns on it! It gives them somethign to talk about. They don’t have ANY plan to od anything. But it’s great to talk about it!
So why bother.
It’s a strategic area. If we drilled in ANWAR, a bunch of Arabs who have a lot less wealth to make trouble for us.
