Obama, The Big Oil President

How many times have we heard that McCain is for big oil? While the media and the Obama camp lies to the public the truth finally comes out. Obama gets much more money from "big oil" than does McCain. Anyone think that might be because Obamas plan is not to drill for new oil thus keeping gas prices high?

The Democratic National Committee may be trying to get some mileage out of recent news about oil industry contributions to Republican Sen. John McCain, launching a web site spoofing the idea of McCain sharing his presidential ticket with Exxon. But they may have found an unwelcome surprise in a just-released analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Turns out, the biggest recipient of contributions from Exxon executives and employees during this campaign is not McCain. It's Obama.

The non-partisan center writes: "Through June, Exxon employees have given Obama $42,100 to McCain's $35,166. Chevron favors Obama $35,157 to $28,500, and Obama edges out McCain with BP $16,046 vs. $11,500."

How on earth can he expect to get any relief from this situation if he keeps refusing to drill? The sooner they start, the better off we all will be.
