As for a Gas Tax Holiday, they will not be President this summer so how can John McCain or Hillary really Implement this idea into FACT.. they can't! It is a gimmick that they cannot produce on... That is so sad, and another example of Politicians trying to fool people for a vote on an ideas or Gift they can't deliver on or produce! JBarack will not make a Phony Promise!

As for the obliteration of Iran remark, we should recall what Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill wrote in position 8 after World War II in The Atlantic Charter, both who knew and were familiar with the horrors of war....

Position "Eighth, they believe that all of the nations of the world, for realistic as well as spiritual reasons must come to the abandonment of the use of force. Since no future peace can be maintained if land, sea or air armaments continue to be employed by nations which threaten, or may threaten, aggression outside of their frontiers, they believe, pending the establishment of a wider and permanent system of general security, that the disarmament of such nations is essential. They will likewise aid and encourage all other practicable measures which will lighten for peace-loving peoples the crushing burden of armaments."

Winston S. Churchill


Less we forget!

It's all free media for Obama, isn't it?
NPR is so unfair to Hillary--only running Obama attacking her energy plan--without explaining there's a short term and a long term solution that involves more of the STRUCTURE of our energy policy vis a vis the Oil Barons--
And Obama will no doubt get fawning coverage about some LED lights.
There is a long-standing PATTERN of unfairness to the coverage that will no doubt be reviewed at a later date.
This is not making the news media look good.
It makes you wonder whether they want to encourage his staying in the race to milk more media buy dollars into the journalists' bosses pockets.

Both Obama and Hillary Presented their Application for Employment. Obama Application includes both "Dreams from My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope". Hillary Application is "A Woman in Charge".... Obama Books are "WRITTEN LIES" especially " Dreams from My Father".

Hillary Book doesnot contains written lies. Any fool with a Legal mind knows that you donot LIE IN WRITING!
