Now, why didn’t any of us lesser beings think of this to solve our oil and high-priced gasoline problem? There’s no need to drill for oil. All we have to do according to the Obamessiah is… keep our vehicle tires inflated!
All hail the genius of the Ooooooh-Baaaaaaah-mah!

There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy. Making sure your tires are properly inflated — simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling — if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You’d actually save just as much!
This is a man who millions of brain-dead Americans are supporting for President. This just tells me that millions of brain-dead Americans are as idiotic, stupid and ignorant as Barack Obama when it comes to simple things like supply and demand and the economy. Pathetic.
When was the last time you heard anything like this coming from a Democrat politician? Barack Obama? The mass media? The Left?
That’s what I thought.

Iraq’s Interior Minister Thanks U.S. Troops for Liberating Iraq — [CNS News]
A top Iraqi official visited wounded American troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Tuesday to thank them for their part in ending Saddam Hussein’s rule in his country.
“We have come … to express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these great warriors, soldiers, in freeing the Iraqi people and in helping us in Iraq recover from tyranny and dictatorship,” Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior, said through a translator to a handful of journalists in the lobby of the medical center.
…probably because all the major networks are following some other guy
But those at Walter Reed are glad to be appreciated and supported;
“We also want to express our gratitude to the families of all these great men and women and express how important their sacrifices are for our nation,” he added.

And the Iraqi PM didn’t make a political brouhaha about it.
The Iraqi government official, who didn’t mention presidential politics, said that he also wanted to visit Walter Reed because it was a “great institution.” “(We wanted) to witness firsthand the level of technical (and) medical sophistication that is being practiced here so that we may learn from it to help our foreign wounded and the many, many victims of terrorism and violence in Iraq,” Bolani added.
This is great, our troops deserve this and so much more.
Indeed. Kudos and many thanks to Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior. If only our own so-called leaders had the integrity and gratitude you showed to our troops.
I’m really getting fed up with this nonsense that if one does not vote for Obama, then one is racist. But this is exactly how the Left and Democrat-supporters have framed this election. The irony is that this shows that it is the Left and the Democrats who are the true racists, not those of us who judge a man by his character, instead of the color of his skin.

[New York Times:] “And before he posed what may be the ultimate test of racial equality — whether Americans will elect a black president — he led students through African-Americans’ long fight for equal status.”
For the Times, this whole election is just that: “the ultimate test of racial equality.” If Obama loses, it can only be for one reason: America failed this test, and is irremediably racist. Debates about Iraq, the economy, energy, taxes, and all the rest, are just sideshows. If you’re racially enlightened, you’ll vote for Obama. If you’re not you won’t.
It must be so gratifying, and self-satisfying, to think like this. No need to think. Just divide the world into right-thinking people and evil racists who vote for Republicans.
