More proof that McCain is as much an idiot as Bush!
The “gang of 10” bring forth a compromise that they feel would bring about some relief in the ‘oil crisis’ that America is going through – Obama supports it, McCain doesn’t. McCain doesn’t because he is stomping his feet on the floor because he isn’t getting his way – he wants that oil out of the ground and oil fields all around the US coast. But we have a slight problem with McCain’s idea:
McCain has been pushing for offshore drilling, saying it’s a “vital part” of dealing with the energy challenge.
“We have to drill here and drill now — not wait and see whether there’s areas to explore, not wait and see whether there’s a package that needs to be put together, but drill here and drill now,” the presumptive Republican nominee said Monday in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania.
OK – let us give McCain his ideal. Now we pause.
See the gap? Even IF you drill now – taking into account that those companies who want to drill don’t have the places to drill, it isn’t just a matter of putting a logo set together and towing it out to sea – the HAVE to know where to drill!
They HAVE to have the right rig, they must KNOW where the oil is – oil companies don’t drill on mere speculation that “Oh look – there could be some oil there.” They have to do the geological surveys, test, test and more test – then test drilling et al.
Obama – and Nancy Pelosi have said – McCain opposed, that the reserve be used to help – yes it needs refining – but those refineries are already on tap, a massive influx of that oil into the US economy would bring oil prices down by almost half – in a matter of two weeks, tops!
So, if you want to wait for the McCain idea of drill for feck-all – go with him – but Obama shows more precise judgement in doing what is right both short-term and long.
Why will you be voting for John McCain again?
