DALLAS, Tex. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called on Congress to help ease our energy woes by allowing more drilling in the U.S., as President Bush released Wednesday a four-point plan to increase domestic fuel production.

"The problem is not the big oil companies, the problem is not the foreigners, the problem is not begging the Saudis," said Gingrich. "The problem is getting Congress to do its job."

Gingrich said that 73 percent of Americans support drilling in presently restricted areas of the U.S. if it is done in an environmentally friendly way.

A congressional moratorium first adopted in the early 1980s banned most offshore oil production and exploration in the U.S., with the exception of waters off Alaska and in the western and central Gulf of Mexico.

I am hoping that McCain picks Newt as VP because he has more ideas and more backbone than any of the spineless Repubs in Congress.

The oil companies have the billions of dollars to explore for more oil and can do it in a safe and Env. fashion. All they need is the right signals from the DC crowd. They do not need hand outs and subsidizes like the alternative fuel crowd. Drilling for oil in the USA will save the taxpayers billions of dollars. It is a win, win situation for Americans.

I might actually vote for McCain if he picked Newt for VP.

That would be great. A racist black at the top of the ticket and a liberal Yankee from MA as VP. I would call that the "wet dream team.":eek: That would guarantee that every southern state would go Repub. I guess the Magic Negro is hoping that this turkey can help him from losing PA and NY.
