Obama Unveils Detailed Energy Plan

Today in Portsmouth, Barack Obama delivered a speech titled "Real Leadership for a Clean Energy Future."

Arguing that "The truth is, our energy problem has become an energy crisis because no matter how well-intentioned the promise – no matter how bold the proposal – they all fall victim to the same Washington politics that has only become more divided and dishonest," Obama laid out a detailed energy plan.

The plan includes reducing foreign oil consumption by 10 million barrels by 2030 and implementing a greenhouse cap-and-trade program.
