Oil is for 'tough' guys, Obama says 

FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. -- President Obama says he doesn't know why people think green energy is for wimps.

"I don't know why some folks think that [if you support alternative energy] you're some pointy-headed environmental type, but if you're all about drilling and getting more oil then you're a tough guy," Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Fairless Hills, Pa. on Wednesday.

He said those attitudes have prolonged American reliance on oil.
