Obama's "alternative solution" to drilling for new supplies of oil.
You all need to realize something. Obama is actually serious about us relying on checking tire pressure and getting tune ups for our automobiles as a substitution for drilling for oil. Using the word "naive" doesn't even begin to scratch the surface with this idiot. Barack said a few months ago that "He was ok with gas prices being at four dollars, he just wish they didn't rise as fast". Barack might want to look into getting a refund on his Harvard education. The guy is clearly a dunce when it comes to the economic principals of "supply and demand". When Obama talks about improving the economy, he's lying. The poor fool hoodwinked himself. Low cost oil is what drives our economy, it doesn't take a person with a MBA to figure that one out. High gas prices take away consumer's spending power in which they could use that money to create economic growth by spending. The economy aka GDP "Gross Domestic Product" consists of two thirds consumer spending. When consumers aren't spending as much in the economy due to them spending more on fuel costs, the economy slows down and eventually goes into recession and a depression if the recession worsens over time.
This brings me back to my original question. Why does anyone with common sense gives Barack Obama any credibility? His so called alternative to drilling is a carbon copy of what Jimmy Carter said thirty one years ago during his State of Union address. FYI, Jimmy Carter went down as one of the worst presidents of the last three decades if not ever. So the only thing the "messiah of change" has is laughable stupidity dressed up as plan? I pray he sticks to this position, and I hope he tries to defend it in the national debates against McCain. These comments from Obama should be enough for McCain to destroy him easily. Obviously Obama isn't up to speed on current events. Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan aren't' the issues Americans are most worried about. It's high gas prices, and sixty five percent of Americans support new exploration drilling. That why this video of Obama in his own words is so damaging. Obama is clearly going against the will of the people.McCain has the ammo, all he has to do now is aim between the eyes and send this fool back to Illinois. If Obama had any common sense, he would realize that the enviro Marxist special interest groups of the Democrat Party by themselves can't get him elected. I never said Obama was bright.
