Versus till now the cellular a lot of the White House where and lots of four of the president will be delivering his address -- the BP's felon report -- something else maybe agreed agenda.
To democratic senator antique lovers are a -- of Minnesota senator yeah tonight's the night whatever the reasons we're going green then and -- green agenda.
-- to use a crisis like us to go on its hands -- like that.
Well clearly the -- the first priority for the people of America if they hear from the president.
A clear plan here I think everyone knows now that still isn't gonna stop tomorrow.
So they want some assurance.
That the federal government have the -- That they are getting the expertise from all over the world to do everything we can't just stop this down.
Secondly I guess being Holland Minnesota this -- and I think people want to know the taxpayers are gonna be footing the bill that's why it is so important to get this.
-- started to make sure beat Pete Hazen early on -- that sure didn't happen in next time I'll.
You know I understand all that I don't -- it got married I think an idea that's -- you know and realizing that it grass is green stuff.
Is that and the tonight news -- I don't.
It out I wouldn't I wouldn't -- -- -- might that I I think it's very important that he also.
You -- this moment it didn't happen after nine elevenths.
I wear an American people were united about not only going after the people that -- that terrorist act but also preparing New York.
I think there also could have been a moment just like there is now where we say okay.
How can we address this energy comes to we have more homegrown energy -- that we look at more diverse energy sources everything from wind is solid and nuclear and I support -- nuclear.
I know exactly every -- can't do this every time we do this whatever the merits of -- whatever the merits of solar nuclear -- We keep trying we keep family and whatever the urgent moment when wells -- a lot higher the situations and a lot more dire.
And whether it's this disaster somebody else it never read -- his navy because.
You know it's just not hardly knew it when you look back at 9/11 -- tragedy as that was and everyone came together.
In the end the president half the American people and I remember this to go shopping to god and spend money he didn't ask us to come behind and work on a bipartisan.
I -- I'm not anticipated and I haven't come out and stated I think in a crisis now that I know wait a ticket -- -- like I had and whatever the merits you have.
For agreeing more diverse.
Won't Americans listening to that say here you go again taking something like -- -- and taking advantage.
I think the American people have realized for a long time probably a lot.
And a lot faster and realizing -- this in the Washington that we can't.
Keep spending hundreds a 100000 dollars and -- -- that drilling will be a piece of this it's gotta be done safer.
But that there also is something that we haven't done and that is that the research that we should -- to biofuels.
There's all kinds of potential without -- we never go anywhere -- -- we would do -- why do we -- know anywhere -- senator time because there's not enough.
Unified support in this country and there's not enough leadership out of Washington -- that -- I had some.
And all these other things man with such great lifesaving.
Changing events you would think if you clarion call in -- -- to them but we never see it.
Well part of this is investors are holding back and waiting.
For some kind of sign that there's incentives in place to focus on those alternatives that hasn't happened -- -- Washington it's happened a state by state I think the major job -- the president tonight.
Is to make the people of America and now that something's gonna happen here that they are gonna have to -- for this mess but the fact that he mentioned that we need to get an energy bill passed.
-- sensible one that doesn't hurt working people.
I think that's important as well we're watching closely -- thank you very much senator good seeing you again Leo it's great to be on again all right.
