Pot - Meet Kettle!

OK....One of the commenters fact the one who seems to have fixated on this really following the Obamassiah line. Blinders on, and fully into the "My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts" routine.

For Dio......This explanation of just how wrong the latest Obama rant on Big Oil actually is......From Neal Boortz:


Barack Obama is trying his darndest to link John McCain to "big oil" and Dick Cheney. Yesterday on the program we talked about Obama's latest McCain-Exxon ad, where he claims that John McCain has received $2 million in campaign contributions from people in the oil industry ... which is completely untrue. The actual figure is more like $1.3 or $1.4 million, but that is beside the point. What Obama failed to mention is that he himself has received well over $400,000 in campaign contributions from "big oil." Nice try, BO!

Something else that Barack Obama has failed to bring up ... and that the media has failed to point out (there's a surprise) ... is that Obama voted for an energy bill in 2005 that included billions in subsidies for oil and natural gas production. Dick Cheney was credited with writing, or at least influencing, much of the bill. And yet Barack voted for it ... twice. Even more surprising is that John McCain did not vote for the bill "because it included billions in unnecessary tax breaks for the oil industry."

The Obama camp says that he supported the bill because it included "huge investments in renewable energy." Yeah, like the ethanol industry ... and we know how well that has gone.

Want another example of Obama's failure to tell the whole truth? He is also saying that McCain is trying to push a $4 billion tax break for the oil industry. Just what is The Chosen One talking about? That would be McCain's proposal to lower corporate income taxes. Currently the United States has the second-largest corporate income tax in the industrialized world. Our punishing tax rates are chasing businesses and capital overseas. Now if you do the math you will see that if McCain manages to get his cut in the corporate tax rate through would cut corporate taxes to oil companies by about $4 billion. So there you go .... Ignoring all of the other American businesses that would benefit, The Big BO is pushing the idea to his ignorant followers that this is really nothing more than a big break for big oil."

Nuff said. Obama is playing a really stupid game of attempted-gottcha. In effect he is more out of step than McCain, and his own voting record and vid clips prove it time-after-time-after-time!

The polls are showing his lack of coherent positions on MANY issues, and the proof is in the pudding as they say. Now the Hildabeast wants to enter her name at the convention. Quite apparently many Democrat biggies are growing restless that "The One" has been unable to show ANY progress in ratings against fact he is falling.

I love it.


UPDATE: GOLLLEEEE! As one Gomer would say...... Just check THESE FACTS! Whoulda A Thunk It!???
