Obama is right to produce instant response ads and run them every time the McSame/Big Oil party speaks.
Now he also needs to admit that the FISA law was JUST FINE before the open season was declared on little Americans' public lives.
That includes minorities such as Arab Americans.

McCain wants to produce more fuel in this country.
Obama says he's against it.

McCain wants to build more nuclear energy plants.
Obama says he's against it.

Talking about the problem isn't going to solve it.

The reason we are paying more for fuel is "supply and demand." Too little supply too much demand. We need to increase the supply. It's that simple! We have a problem and we know how to solve it. Can't we just get started?? Americans working for American companies right here at home could get fuel production up and running real fast...if only Congress would stop blocking the logical solution. More supply would bring the price of gas down real fast!

Sure Bush & Cheney are oil men and they know a lot about that business. Eight years ago they told us demand was rising faster than supply. They said we should start drilling in Alaska in order to head off a crisis in the future. Well, the future is here. If we had paid attention eight years ago, we wouldn't be paying the high prices at the pump now.


IF WE HAD VOTED FOR THE RIGHT GUYS 8 YEARS AGO WE WOULDN'T BE IN
THIS MESS!
THE GUYS YOU NAMED CHENEY AND BUSH, ALL THEY WANTED TO DO WAS START A WAR!
IF THEY HAD FOCUSED ON DRILLING INSTEAD OF BULL-BLANKING, THAT'S
WHY WE NEED A DEMOCRAT IN OFFICE, THIS CONSERVATIVE ATTITUDE
HAS TO DO WITH MONEY AND ENTITLEMENT, OBAMA DOESN'T FEEL THIS WAY!
BUSH AND CHENEY ARE MORE CON-MEN THAN OIL MEN!
