<quoted text>Press conference ? Is that when questions are asked that can be embarrassing to answer without having a prepared response from a device located at eye level ?
Yes, one of those. Questions Letterman, Leno, The View and MTV would not ask.

North American Energy Independence 101 (for morons)
The nonsense goal of "energy independence" used to dominate the American political debate, and today with the rollout of his new energy policy Mitt “I know business” Romney has tweaked it to a new level of nonsense in which the policy goal is "North American energy independence."
What's the difference? Well the difference is that the United States doesn't contain enough oil to meet our energy needs, so "energy independence" necessarily entails heavy reliance on renewables or nuclear both of which are low in greenhouse gas emissions. But Canada has lots of oil. So by tweaking the goal, you get to turn what was supposed to be a nonsense rhetorical wrapper for climate change policy into a nonsense rhetorical wrapper for promotion of oil and gas drilling.
However you feel about Canada, nothing changes the fact that oil is a globally traded commodity. Even if we could fully supply ourselves with Mexican, American, and Canadian oil a war in the Persian Gulf would still create a huge spike in gasoline prices unless we could somehow prevent the export of North American oil to Europe and Asia. But unless you're planning to nationalize oil companies or actually isolate North America from worldwide commodity markets, you're not "independent" of anything.
So -- When was obama's last press conference(?)
