Post at Firedoglake here.
President Arbusto loves McSame's "give the oil companies exactly what they want" proposal so much, he's giving it the kiss of death his stamp of approval:
President Bush asked Congress Wednesday to permit drilling for oil in deep water off America's coasts to combat rising oil and gas prices.
"There is no excuse for delay," the president said in a Rose Garden statement.
Anyway, Big Oil is absolutely thrilled with the Bush/McSame proposal. When you see headlines like "oil execs respond favorably," that sort of tells you everything you need to know. But here's where I'm confused.* Bush has a 24% approval rating.
* Cheney has an 18% approval rating.
* And 90% (90%!) of Americans think Big Oil is culpable for high gas prices.
So people hate Bush, hate Cheney and really, really hate Big Oil -- yet McSame is lining up with them. Again.
I'm starting to think an Obama mole is running the McSame campaign.
