Absolutely agreed. The question is who does the average voter believe is pumping out "hot air and empty promises."
I think it's Sen. McCain, who has been a fixture in Washington DC for over 20 years, is tied to Bush's policies, represents the "old politics" & has done nothing to help us become energy independent in all his years as a Senator, but now "suddenly" sees the light... just b4 the election!
Further, I suggest that anyone who doesn't actually listen Obama's energy speech (available for free at http://www.c-span.org/) has no basis to claim they disagree with it.
( and no....a 3 minute slanted recap of it on Fox News doesn't count!)
