Yesterday, President Bush issued a statement that Congress should lift the ban on offshore oil drilling off the US coastline. The best reason he could think of for this was the 4-dollar-a-gallon gas. Immediately, Senator McCain, who is increasingly looking like George Dubya Bush the Third, concurred with the President and thought offshore drilling is the way Americans can be saved from high oil prices. While public opinion might be slightly drifting towards this stupid idea, Senator Barack Obama stood his ground on the issue, discouraging the old style Washingtonian pandering of Bush-McCain.
The New York Times effectively settles the argument with a furiously hard-hitting editorial that criticizes Bush and McCain for selling out to big oil companies, that are already basking in record profits.
