Stopped clock, twice a day, etc.. But, he's right. It's well-known now that we use more fossil fuels to make a gallon of ethanol than it delivers in energy. How boneheaded can we be?
Prediction: I will cast my vote for the first presidential candidate with the guts to tell Iowans that he will end ethanol subsidies. That would be leadership.
