    the only oil "emergency" is that we're in an election year.


    It's painful to hear America whining about $4 gasoline when
    other nations, from Canada to Europe, pay the equivalent of $6-$8/gallon routinely. Of course the average vehicle gas mileage in Europe is about double ours, since they don't drive SUVs, and virtually all the larger vehicles are diesel.

    Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat...................... don't really watch, just believe me when I tell where it came from.
    Obama is absolutely lost and doesn't have a clue which way to turn. Schumer wants the Saudi's to drill there and drill now.


    Let's try drill here, drill now.
