McCain up to the challenge
Just not too long ago, Newt Gingrich and others were saying McCain really needed to start calling for tapping of US oil fields. It seems he's doing just that! I think this could be a home run for him if he plays the card right. With gas prices the way they are, this is a good move. Everyone knows we have been ignoring our own oil fields while begging the Saudis to produce more. All for the sake of a few people who believe this is the be best way of getting people off of gas -- just make sure the prices rise enough.
Make no mistake: LIBERALS WANT HIGH GAS PRICES! Americans need to remind themselves of this. They believe that is the only way they can change us. It's just another form of environmental terrorism.
McCain says the United States has 21 billion barrels of proven oil reserves which are not being tapped because of a federal moratorium on exploration and production.
"I believe it is time for the federal government to lift these restrictions and to put our own reserves to use," he will say. "We can do this in ways that are consistent with sensible standards of environmental protection.
