I do not think

Obama is this stupid… But if he is… whew.  THis is an actual quote and you can listen to it at the link below.

“There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy,” Obama said. “Making sure your tires are properly inflated – simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling – if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You’d actually save just as much!

i am not making this up.  That is an actual quote from the probable next president.

BTW, having never thought about tire pressure other than making sure it is correct once in awhile, this is actually a very good suggestion.  One blog “guestimated” that it would save around 90,000,000 barrels/year. So that is a good “partial” solution & an excellent suggestion.   However, when one tags it with the dumb statement at the end ‘save just as much”… & combine it with his positions on offshore drilling [18 billion barrels …although probably MUCH !!! higher since exploration has been banned/ ANWAR [10 billion barrels] / nuclear /oil shale one TRILLION barrels… I think it just reveals how little Obama understands the energy problem.

All those figures are estimates… I’d just guess there’s lots more out there if we’d only look.
