Obama: Tap nation’s oil reserve to help gas prices

August 4th, 2008 . by TexasFred

CHICAGO (AP) - Barack Obama is proposing tapping the nation’s strategic oil reserves to help drive down gasoline prices, his campaign said Monday.

Obama supports releasing light oil from the emergency oil stockpile now and replacing it later with heavier crude more suited to the country’s long-term needs, according to a campaign fact sheet. Light crude oil is easier to refine into gasoline than heavier oil.

Also on Monday, the Obama campaign unveiled a television ad that criticizes Republican John McCain’s energy policies.

“After one president in the pocket of big oil we can’t afford another,” says the ad, referring to President Bush’s previous work in the oil industry.

Obama is emphasizing energy and the economy in campaign stops this week in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, beginning with a speech Monday in Lansing, Mich. Gas prices over $4 a gallon have become a top issue in the presidential contest.

Obama: Tap nation’s oil reserve to help gas prices

To put it simply, Barack Hussein Obama is a fool of the 1st order.

Leave the strategic petroleum reserves alone, they are reserves, and they are there for a reason, and that reason is NOT to cover the asses of the do nothing Congress and Senate that this nation is suffering through at this point in time.

Suppose Ahmadinejad decides to shut down the Strait of Hormuz and disrupt the flow of oil to the west?

Of course the Navy would promptly unblock the Strait, but the disruption would already be affecting the American and other world markets and ready supplies, but more importantly, the oil supplies to our military, our protectors, it would have been disrupted as well, that my friends is why we have a strategic petroleum reserve.

And apparently Barack Hussein Obama has NO understanding of that, the man that wants to lead this nation has no background in leadership, has very little experience in government and business and has NO clue concerning national security or our military.

Read the full article from AP, see for yourself, if you don’t already know, Obama is a disaster looking for a place to happen, and the American people can’t stand the potential disaster this person poses.

Come November there’s going to be a lot of people going to the polls and holding their noses as they vote, many, myself included, won’t be voting FOR McLame, but AGAINST Obama.

And guess what WE get for that? The lesser of 2 evils. All over again.

Damn, are WE stupid or what??
