If only we could fuel the world with the horse manure Obama hoses on his townhall crowds

Barack Obama today blamed the administration for higher gas prices.
Now, it isn’t an accident that gas prices are this high. It’s because Washington failed to deal with the challenge of alternative energy when it had the chance. Instead we’ve had an energy policy that’s been written by and for the big oil and gas companies.
Barack Obama failed to mention that he voted for that energy policy and John McCain voted against it.
Likewise, Obama told the crowd
While Senator McCain has spoken out on energy reform in the past, in this campaign, he isn’t offering any solutions to help Americans pay for high gas prices. Instead, he’s proposing a gas tax holiday that’s nothing more than a Washington stunt.
What Obama did not tell the crowd is that while John McCain wants lower prices, Barack Obama supports higher gas prices to force consumers to use less and seek alternatives.
At the same time though, Obama is opposed to real energy alternatives like nuclear energy and he opposed to expanded drilling for petroleum fuel sources. Well, let's let John McCain remind us of Senator Obama's real position:
So, to summarize: Obama tells people that the energy policy he supported and John McCain opposed was a bad policy. He also said John McCain is offering no solutions to lower gas prices, but failed to say that his position is to support higher gas prices.
No wonder people faint in his presence. The stench is overwhelming.
