It appears that Republicans do agree that gauging your tires is a good thing. They are selling (at a hefty profit I might add) and giving away custom engraved tire gauges.
Politico has the story.
McCain aides are distributing them to the campaign's travelling press corps and back at the HQ they're offering Obama tire gauges in exchange for donors who send in $25.The story goes on to call this effort a gimmick. Does that mean Obama's energy plan is a gimmick? If not where are Obama's tire gauges? Doesn't he want to do something right now about the energy crisis? Or is he just all talk?
"John McCain says we need offshore oil drilling and we need it now," says campaign manager Rick Davis in an email to supporters. "Senator Barack Obama has consistently opposed offshore drilling - calling it a "gimmick." Senator Obama's solution to high gas prices is telling Americans to make sure their tires are inflated."
Me? I like the Paris Hilton/Republican Plan. All the above. Drill now to get us through the tough times and reduce our dependence on foreign oil while we work on solutions and make efforts to roll those solutions out.
It looks like John McCain's Campaign is still inside Obama's OODA loop. The fighter pilot is on Obama's tail and he is not giving up his position. It also looks like McCain's Campaign is having a lot of fun. Obama is supposed to be really internet savvy and McCain is a dunce about the net. Yet it is McCain's campaign which is operating on Internet time and Obama's which is plodding along. My guess? Obama has too much money and the things that come with that. Too many layers of management. I guess Obama never learned about economy of force during his study of military matters.
