Democrats doubt Bush can cut US oil imports

Senate Democrats on Tuesday asked the Bush administration to explain how it can slash Middle East oil imports by 75 percent by 2025 when the government’s top energy forecaster predicts that won’t happen….

Consumer groups and environmentalists are tagging Bush’s energy initiative as merely a public-relations blitz meant to change public sentiment without changing policy.

“This is pure window-dressing, so the administration can get some new stories out there without offering any solutions that will offend (the Republican party’s) biggest contributor — the oil industry,” said Tyson Slocum at Public Citizen, the consumer watchdog group.
