    An engineer on PBS News the other night said that if we drilled all the locations the republicans demand we wouldn’t add 2% to our current domestic oil supply – the GOP is NUTS!

    those campaign donations don’t amount to 10% of what the Republicans get EVERY YEAR!

    When you tell a lie long enough & loud enough people tend to believe it. Carl Rove et al have made it so for the GOP.

    The sign should be in tatters from the two partys swapping.

    Exactly! I thought I was the only one who saw that.

    As opposed to the campaign payouts of big oil to the Republicans.

    We ARE drilling. We are at an 8 year high on drilling. But that does’t fit on a bumper sticker

    I think we’ve see what CONservatives can do with those oil kick backs:

    *Keep oil subsidies going.

    *Look the other way when oil speculators manipulate the price of oil.

    *Shoot down an amendment to keystone that would keep oil produced in america.

    There really should be a bigger hand giving a bigger bag to the elephant

    There are two news organization to which I give no credibility: PBS and MSNBC Their blatant political positions make me doubt there veracity even when I suspect they are correct.

    Comicgo – I’m sure you can find Shills out there for any industry. As an Engineer in the field I can guarentee you, just based on reported reserves that he was handing you a steaming mound of Green.

    They trot out the same doofuses every time to convince all the greenies that we can replace chemical engergy with a solar panel on the roof of our car but the truth is that it won’t work.

    Then the greenies all tell us we just need to drive less and everything will be ok. Which do they want? Should I give up my good job and live like the Amish (remember, now I won’t be able to pay those high income taxes that fund all the green initiatives our government is chasing). Or should I move closer to where I work – My kids should go to failing schools in the city which we gladly left behind. Neither works. People are going to drive and oil is necessary. Green isn’t there yet and it won’t be there for a long damn time. In the mean time all of us want to live like 21st century adults.

    Why does McCoy keep lying like this? Is he evil? Corrupt? Stupid? I’ll never understand people like that.

    Mephistopholes, oil is liquid and fungible, and US reserves are low. Any extra drilling might have a minor effect on our balance of trade, but it wouldn’t much affect the price of oil, or its availability, since that’s determined by world supplies. As to environmentalists, clearly, both conservation and new sources of energy are obvious parts of the solution. It makes little sense to whine about gas prices when your vehicles could be made much more efficient using existing technology. Also, we’re sitting on lots of domestic resources that we don’t fully utilize, including our newly plentiful supply of natural gas. The fact that we import any oil at all is shameful — we produce more than enough domestically to cover the few applications for which no reasonably economical alternative exists.

    Obama raises more on love a few dollars at a time than the Republicans raise a few millionaires at a time. Ain’t it great?

    If its something that helps the inviroment and people – instead of something like the oil industry (looking jobs aside) – its not really a bad thing.
