Obama on Oil

So gas prices have come down a little, but not much. I've done a lot of reading about this issue and I'm pretty convinced that we ought to be drilling like crazy here in the US. If you want some more info on the reasons why, check out Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post.

In this current economic climate, then, what would Barack Obama do? Well, a couple of days ago in Missouri he asserted that if we all just inflated our tires properly, we would save as much oil as we could get by drilling. Powerline checks the math:
So, on the above assumptions, it would take only 11,308 years of proper tire inflation to equal "all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling."

Obama is a curious case. He gives the impression of being an intelligent guy, but through his unscripted comments we have learned that he knows little about history, science or mathematics. He also seems rather shockingly short on common sense, as this most recent gaffe illustrates.
