The Voinovich/Obama Energy Plan

Bill Sloat reminds us that in addition to Barack Obama, George Voinovich also suggested that the way to save dollars at the gas pump was to make sure that your tires were inflated. And while doing so might save you a bit of your hard earned cash, it is not a plan for reducing the price of gasoline. This "commonsense plan" merely reduces, by some fraction, how quickly you will need to return to the gas station for a fill-up. The price of the gasoline that you put in your tank will not be effected by your tire pressure at all. If you need to see proof of this, go to your local gas station and inflate your tires while looking at the sign that says how much gas costs. Now, unless you happen to be there while they are changing the sign, which would be quite a coincidence, the act of putting air in your tires does not lower the price of gasoline.

Of course, Senator Voinovich managed to mention a few other planks in his energy plan that Obama isn't even going to consider but Bill Sloat didn't mention them either...

The truth is Bill Sloat linked to Voinovich's entire message. So Bill Sloat presented everything that Voinovich mentioned. You know this because you have a link to Bill Sloat. Matt Hurley never lets truth get in the way of a good rant.

Oh, of course Bill linked to the Voinovich statement, but he failed to mention the other stuff that Voinovich supported that Obama does not.

Also not addressed is the fact that Obama claims that tire inflation alone would equal the amount of gasoline we could get out of drilling...which if that alone doesn't make you laugh at the hysterical nature of the nonsense of Obama's energy policy, I don't know what will...

Truth...yeah, I know all about truth.
