So, President Bush has now joined John McCain’s call to eliminate the federal ban on offshore oil drilling . He’s even asked Congress to do so. This strikes me as a smart move, both in the political world, and the real one.
Obama is now in the position, along with congressional Democrats, of explaining why voters are paying over $4/gallon while he tries to keep the federal bans on getting more oil to market, which would have the effect of lowering costs to those voters. Smart move.
Surber  does this one as well as anyone I’ve seen today:
Here is the price Americans are paying for pristine coastlines: $4 a gallon for gasoline and $5 for a box of cereal.
President Bush wants to end this nonsense.
