And I hope he doesn’t: “House GOP Invites McCain to Join Protest; Challenges Pelosi to Stop Them.”
McCain says he would join them if Barack Obama would also agree to do so. I don’t think he should even wait for The Chosen One to join him. I think this is another “money-where-your-mouth-is” moment for McCain that would show up the presumptive Democratic party nominee, forcing discussion and action on this issue to go beyond tire gauges and tune-ups.
We’re watching the price of oil fall since Bush lifted the executive order banning domestic drilling. The conspiracy-minded can concoct all the “oil-men-in-the-White-House” manipulating prices conspiracies they want. All I know is I spent less than $35.00 to fill up with gas last night. That hasn’t happened since February.
Conserve resources – absolutely!
Develop new sources of energy – no question!
Increase fuel efficiency of automobiles and create more hybrids – certainly!
Maintain responsible stewardship of the planet – of course!
Wean ourselves off fossil fuels – possible and desirable!
But in the meantime: drill here, drill now.
And vote with your wallet.
