It's the economy, stupid @ 01:12 pm

"Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Mr. McCain’s chief economic adviser and a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, said the benefits of success in Iraq dwarfed the $150 billion annual cost. He also said that if the war and the personal and corporate tax cuts that Mr. McCain advocated added to the federal deficit and debt, so be it." - New York Times

Our national debt is skyrocketting, our economy is in a near recession, gasoline is $4.27 a gallon and we shouldn't worry about the budget? We shouldn't worry about the Iraq ware? A war we can't win? And please won't someone think about those poor corporate giants and the tax cuts they can't afford to lose.

You probably have to pump your own too! Here in fancy Or-ee-gone we have attendants who come to your car and do it for you! Then you don't have to get out of your A/C car while they pump. So nice.

Wow, I haven't seen a gas station where someone pumps the gas for you in all the 24 years we have lived in Texas! You guys are really living in the elite zone! :) Even though we live a few hours from the coast, where oil is pumped and processed into gasoline, we are also paying $4.27/gallon. Thank heavens we don't have a truck or an SUV!
