    --Think about it: it's the single "alternative" fuel that's totally
dependent on oil and dubya is an oil man.

How the hell do you figure hydrogen to be "totally dependent on oil"?
Any source of electricity, i.e. solar, wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal,
trash, bio gas, nuclear, etc. can be used to generate hydrogen, all
entirely independent from oil.

The only means we currently possess to make the huge amounts of
hydrogen required to replace fossil fuels is to make it from
fossil fuels.

Incorrect. We do not currently have any plants capable of producing the
volume of hydrogen that would be needed as an energy carrier to replace
current fossil fuel use. Substantial plants will need to be built and
what is built does not have to utilize fossil fuels.
