McCain finally gets it on energy

“He [Obama] says it won’t solve our problem and that it’s, quote, not real. He’s wrong and the American people know it,” McCain told reporters.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26295771/

McCain on board for ALL solutions

“We need to drill offshore and we need to do it now. If I were president, I would call Congress back into session and tell them to get to work,”

[Congress left the latest version of its energy bill hanging before taking its summer vacation.]

Experts note that lifting the offshore drilling bans, even if accomplished early in a McCain presidency, would not produce any oil for five to seven years. [mikenote:  This is just one of the stupidest statements that anti-oil people make.   They probably said that in 1994? when Clinton vetoed drilling in Anwar…. and that was ooops… 14 YEARS AGO!]

McCain acknowledged drilling “will not solve this problem alone.” He also emphasized need for other technologies, such as nuclear, wind and clean coal.
