The Off Shore Drilling Proposal = Summer Gas Tax Issue

By now hopefully everyone knows that giving the oil companies a carte blanche on drilling would have no effect on gas prices, at least not for a couple of decades and then it might reduce the price by one percent or so. Obama and McCain debating this issue is exactly like the Obama-Clinton debate on the summer suspension of the gas tax: It’s a red herring. This offers no solution whatsoever and is presented solely to falsely tantalize voters.

It hurts McCain to be offering up gimmicks like this as solutions.  Obama comes off looking much more serious and far sighted.  Voters may be smarter than McCain believes as two thirds of Americans support Obama’s position.
