T. Boone Pickens - Energy Plan & The New Reid/Schumer Icon

CNN and Wolf Blitzer have a great interview with T. Boone Pickens about his energy plan. Pickens wants the country to move heavily towards wind and solar and is critical of John McCain's energy proposals to date. Democrats have interpreted this as full support behind their plan not to allow any drilling. In fact, its rather hilarious to watch Harry Reid and Chuck Shumer during the video below embrace Pickens, not understanding that he is critical of McCain's plan to drill off the east and west coast because it does not include ANWR. When Pickens says "we can't drill our way out of this problem," he means we won't find enough oil to substitute for our current 70% dependence on foreign oil. But "can't drill" does not mean "don't drill."

Since we could not find a vehicle registered for T. Boone Pickens, the oil man on television, see what vehicle his wife drives
