Obama Takes Gas Tax War to The Airwaves

Debate about a gas tax holiday will play out all weekend on Indiana airwaves, thanks to Barack Obama's new ad.

"Pennies" calls out Hillary Clinton for supporting a tax holiday, something Obama opposes.

Here's the script:

Another negative ad from Hillary Clinton. But here's what she's NOT saying.
USA Today calls her three-month gas tax holiday "political pandering." It's an election year-gimmick, saving Hoosiers just pennies a day.
Barack Obama's plan? Take on price-gouging by oil companies. Tax their windfall profits. Invest in alternative energy. Give working families a permanent, thousand-dollar tax cut to help with rising costs.
That's change we can believe in.

...And The Hoosiers Can Draft Players

From The NBA

From Political Punch:

"Guam's four Democratic delegates (not

to mention its five superdelegates) are

up for grabs in Saturday's primary, and

Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has told

residents of that Pacific territory that

as president she will work to give them

the right to vote for president...

Would that mean making Guam a state?

Bestowing citizenship upon these US

nationals? Same with Puerto Rico, the

Virgin Islands and American Samoa? Would

they get Senators and full voting

members of Congress? How about DC?

Wouldn't this require major

constitutional changes?"

Perhaps she can sell Guam to fund the

Gas Tax Holiday.

bEING NOT A PRESIDENT AND NOT EVEN A CANDIDATE YET IF EVER,OBAMA IS VERY ARROGANT TO ATTACK THE GAS TAX HOLIDAY BUT WHAT IS HIS CURRENT ALTERNATIVE FOR THIS SUMMER? IS IT BECAUSE HE DIDNOT COME OUT WITH A SOLUTION EVEN A TEMPORARY ONE? WE ALL KNOW ABOUT TAXING THE BIG OIL COMPANIES AND REDUCING THEIR PROFIT.. GEORGE BUSH HAS TAUGHT OF THAT, HE EVEN NEGOTIATED WELL WITH THE OIL PRODUCERS AND UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS NOT EASY AND GOALS WERE NOT MET. HOWEVER, OBAMA SEEM TO CLAIM HE CAN DO IT, VERY IDEAL, BUT WHEEW IT COULD POSSIBLY SAFE TO ASSUME THAT HE HAS SUPERPOWERS SINCE HE SPEAKS OMNIPOTENTLY. IF GOD ABANDONS US AND MAKE HIM PRESIDENT, HE WILL BE EATING HIS TONGUE. A LITTLE BREAK FROM HIGH GAS PRICES EVEN ONLY THIS SUMMER, THE TIME WE WILL BE BRINGING OUR KIDS AROUND WILL SURELY HELP, AND WILL START THE WAR ON GAS PRICES WHICH MEANS THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO DO SOMETHING OR THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD SHOULDER THE INCREASE BY GIVING PEOPLE WITH CARS TAX SUBSIDY.
