MSNBC: Americans Are The Enemy Due To Oil 'Addiction'

[Meanwhile, in our professional media {with Pulitzer winning columnists, of course}:]

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Cynthia Tucker believes Americans are the enemy of the nation moving in a new energy direction because of what she called our addiction to oil.

As the discussion on this weekend's "The Chris Matthews Show" moved to why President Obama hasn't attacked energy policy much like Eisenhower did the space program, Tucker said,

"One of the differences between the '50's when Sputnik was launched and now, that was a battle against Communism. It's always much easier to rally Americans against an external threat, an external enemy.

In this case, the enemy is us. Americans are addicted to petroleum. We use way too much oil"
