With the Obama campaign about to begin another conference call attacking John McCain on energy issues — and on the day that the Times runs a story on A1 documenting the ways in which Obama is captive to Big Corn — the McCain campaign announces a web ad called “energy security” in which the candidate asserts that he is the more independent voice on energy.
From the release:
blockquote>Script For “Energy Security” (Web 1:00)
CHYRON: A reliance on oil
A threat to our climate.
A threat to our economy.
A threat to national security.
JOHN MCCAIN: “Much of the world’s oil supply is controlled by states, regimes and a cartel for which America’s well being is not exactly a priority.”
“We must shift our entire energy economy toward new and cleaner power sources such as wind, solar, biofuels. It will include a variety of new automotive and fuel technologies, clean-burning coal and nuclear energy.”
CHYRON: Shift our economy.
Plug-in and hybrid.
JOHN MCCAIN: “The next president must be willing to break with the energy policies not just of the current Administration, but the administrations that preceded it, and lead a great national campaign to achieve energy security for America.”
CHYRON: End the federal moratorium on drilling.
JOHN MCCAIN: “I know how to do that and I will do it my friends.”
CHYRON: Reform — Prosperity — Peace
