It's a Start… RNC Attacks Obama on Energy

There is a reason that energy prices are skyrocketing in this country.
Democrats support higher energy prices.
Over the past 30 years:

Democrats have blocked the development of new sources of petroleum.
Democrats have blocked drilling in ANWR.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the coast of Florida.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the east coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the west coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast.
Democrats have blocked building oil refineries.
Democrats have blocked clean nuclear energy production.
Democrats have blocked clean coal production.

Over the past 30 years Democrats have effectively created “No Zones” for US energy exploration and development:

(Republican Senator Craig put together this map in 2006.)
As Americans pay more for gas than ever under this Congress–
Democrats continue to vote against energy development and exploration.

Well, Republicans have finally decided to communicate a few of these facts to the American people. The RNC just released a $3 million ad on energy this weekend.
The Politico and The Fix reported:

The 30-second ad, called “Balance,” is read by a narrator and focuses on energy at a time when gas prices are the top issue on voters’ minds.

The script: “Record gas prices, a climate in crisis. John McCain says solve it now. With a balanced plan — alternative energy, conservation, suspending the gas tax AND more production here at home. He’s pushing his own party to face climate change.

“But Barack Obama? For conservation, but he just says no to lower gas taxes. No to nuclear. No to more production. No new solutions. Barack Obama: Just the party line. The Republican National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.”

Not bad. It’s a little soft– That part about “pushing his own party to face climate change” is ridiculous.
But, it’s a start.
