Wake Up Liberals: Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid! 67% of America is for Offshore Drilling to Lower Gas Prices

[Note: You have to love how the Obama Liberals are with only 18% of the Public on this one and the Conservatives, Independents and Freedom-Loving Democrats are with over 2/3 of the Public! There are ways to responsibly drill off the Virginia and Delmarva coast and there are environmentally friendly ways to liquify coal in SW Virginia. The Democrats however want working men and women in Virginia and the Nation to suffer?

Why I ask?

This will be a great question for Barack Obama, Mark Warner, Judy Feder, Gerry Connolly, Jim Moran and the other Dems running this fall who all want higher prices at the pump. Imagine this, Virginia would get to keep, from what I hear nearly 37% of the revenue for drilling offshore, wouldn't that be a nice way to solve our transportation issues?]

TOM SULLIVAN: one way to get more oil, drill more wells right off the u.s. coast. scott rasmussen joins us with the results of his latest poll about that. what are people -- are they for or against it?

CHERYL CASONE: 67%, scott. i was shocked at that. were you?

SCOTT RASMUSSEN: i was shocked at one level at 67% favor what we thought was a controversial idea. only 18% opposed. but when i look at this with other data, people will do anything if it leads to lower gas prices.

CASONE: the environmentalists are screaming right now. [Yippee, note the Conservationists such as Teddy Roosevelt are cool and calm, only the ELF types are the whackjobs]

SULLIVAN: all 18% of them obviously.

well, actually we asked about -- there's a distinction. we asked about offshore drilling and 64%, a wildlife area in alaska, 53% but there's a sense you have to do something. there's a belief if you drill, it will lead to lower prices and the american people are clear, they don't like the idea that you have to conserve more or get a smaller car. they want new sources of energy as the solution.

i was struck across the board, democrats, republicans, conservatives, men, women, the way you break things down, there wasn't a group. the majority was always for offshore drilling.

RASMUSSEN: there are some differences, conservatives are more enthusiastic and by the way on other top picks, the liberals are more enthusiastic but the key is again across the board, people are saying let's do something to get the prices down. 47% believe private companies are more likely to find solutions rather than a government research program. 30% say it's a government research program that will do the trick. i suspect the real answer is whatever works.

CASONE: scott, populism is alive and well. great to see you.

SULLIVAN: thank you.

Let's Win Virginia for McCain
From the McDonnell Newsroom
June 10, 2008

On Monday (June 9, 2008), Senator John McCain launched his general election campaign in Virginia. He held events in Richmond and Northern Virginia seeking the vote of every Virginian. In the coming weeks and months, I will actively and vigorously promote his candidacy. I hope you will join me in this effort.

In a world of conflict and change, voters are seeking positive solutions to the challenges we face. From foreign policy to energy to spending, the next President will make choices that will resonate for decades to come, and impact the lives of all Americans. The choice this year is clear. There is no one more prepared, more trustworthy or better suited to assume the mantle of "Leader of the Free World" than Senator John McCain. Having distinguished himself with a lifetime of service, this is truly an hour in which the man and the moment have met.

John McCain has the vision we need. Just as importantly, he has the record we can trust.

Our nation needs fiscal discipline. John McCain has led the fight for earmark reform and spending cuts. Our nation needs a robust free-market, unshackled from excessive government intervention, so that we can prosper in a dynamic global market. John McCain is committed to reducing regulation and empowering our business owners and entrepreneurs to create jobs, wealth and opportunity. Our nation needs a coherent and strong foreign policy suited to the global challenges we face. John McCain understands these challenges, has demonstrated leadership on meeting them and will be a president that the world respects; and history remembers. Our nation needs a president committed to protecting the sanctity of life. John McCain has a solid pro-life record.

Virginians know John McCain. They know he is a patriot. They know he is independent. They know that his record confirms his rhetoric and his vision is based on his values.

America needs John McCain in the Oval Office.

I invite you to join the effort to elect John McCain the next President of the United States. Put a sticker on your car. Place a sign in your yard. Tell a friend about his record. Write a letter to the editor. Donate to the campaign.

To get involved please visit:

To use a phrase a Navy hero like John McCain is familiar with, in the 2008 election its time for "All hands on deck." Let's keep Virginia red in 2008 and let's keep America number one in the world. Let's elect John McCain President of the United States.

From the McCain '08 Newsroom

BarackObama KMOV [St. Louis, MO] Interview
June 10, 2008
Reporter: "For a couple of days, they've been saying you voted to raise taxes something like 94 times. That seems to be the drumbeat that's going to happen during this campaign. Are you going to raise taxes in a big way for average Americans?"

Senator Obama: "I mean this is the standard fare of politics. And the truth of the matter is that the only bills that I voted for, for the most part, since I've been in the Senate were introduced by Republicans with George Bush. You know, they were the majority for a big chunk of the time I was here."
