    He is certainly headed in that direction. His tax plans are about the same as carter.

    To the previous poster, if we would have listened to carter you are right, prices would be at $20/ gallon. It all started with him at the helm, he let what was miniscule pockets of terrorist run amock, and get grandious ideas. Saddam Hussein started with him too, he gave him arms and money after Anwar Sadat's murder, he created a monster. He also did not respond to an infiltration of communism in Central America, and once again allowed very small pockets of terrorist to become great (Daniel Ortega). He was the most useless President of all time.

    Is there a question here? I think you already know the answer.

    We can't just conserve our way out of an energy crisis. The oil economy is not a closed economic system limited to the United States. The rest of the world is demanding what has recently been our share. We also have to look toward alternatives and INCREASE SUPPLY BY DRILLING.

    Obama's goal in his energy policy is to completely eliminate the use of fossil fuels as an energy source. If energy prices skyrocket, I don't think he really cares. He has completely bought into Global Warming and wants to save the planet while he still can.

    No, but Jimmy Carter urged everyone to conserve, and took steps have the federal government conserve, too bad all the people like you laughed at him. If you had listened to him we wouldn't in the situation we are now.

    If you want the "liberty" to waste energy, don't complain about high prices.

    Yes. And if we had had Jimmy Carter type presidencies, we would be a third world communist country by now. People like him are afraid of success - and they don't believe the U.S. is the greatest country in the world. They want to bring us down. But, thank God for Jimmy Carter, he helped liberals see the U.S. needed Ronald Reagan.

    Considering Senator Obama's energy policies equate to upholding the current status quo, and his only "new" energy idea is a windfall profits tax on oil companies like the one that failed in the seventies (like the one the President Carter had passed, and that eventually failed) it could very well be so.

    its amazing how common seance and a plan that includes all the citizens of the country works

    Oil and gas drilling in the US is at record levels in many states. A new deepwater permit was just issued for the Gulf. The US is still the 3rd largest oil PRODUCER in the world so your premise is completely wrong.

    It wont work, it will fail and we Americans will pay more for less because of it. Its not a solution it will create a bigger problem. Too bad McCain doesn't have any answers either. Where the hell is Perot?

    Senator Obama believes that America must commit to a new national energy policy focused on improvements in technology, investments in renewable fuels such as wind and solar power, and greater efforts in conservation, efficiency, and waste reduction. Shifting from our current investment and consumption practices to this new direction will be one of the great leadership challenges in the coming decade.

    Senator Obama is a leading advocate for increasing the use of renewable fuels to reduce our nation’s reliance on foreign petroleum. In 2005, he enacted into law a tax credit for installing E-85 ethanol refueling pumps at gas stations across the country.

    In the 109th and 110th Congress, he joined with Senator Lugar to introduce the American Fuels Act.

    In January 2007, Senator Obama joined Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa in reintroducing the Biofuels Security Act.

    Senator Obama also authored legislation with Senator Cochran, the Alternative Diesel Standard.

    As the author of the Fuel Economy Reform Act, Senator Obama has worked to gain bipartisan support for an innovative approach to raising automobile fuel efficiency standards (also known as “CAFE” standards) and break two decades of inaction and deadlock on reforming fuel economy laws.

    Senator Obama introduced the “Health Care for Hybrids Act.”

    In May 2007, Senator Obama, along with Senator Harkin, authored the National Low Carbon Fuel Standard Act (S. 1324).

    Oil companies are enjoying record profits while consumers are suffering from record high gas prices. In the 110th Congress, Senator Obama has introduced the Oil SENSE Act to eliminate unnecessary tax breaks to the oil industry. A version of the bill was passed by House of Representatives in January 2007.

    In the 109th Congress, Senator Obama sponsored the FILL UP Act.

    IT IS MAINLY BECAUSE SENATOR OBAMA STANDS UP FOR AMERICAN CONSUMERS OF ENERGY AND WISHES TO DEVELOP A GOOD COMMON SENSE ENERGY POLICY THAT HOLDS OIL COMPANIES ACCOUNTABLE FOR EXTREME OVER-THE-TOP PROFITS WHILE AMERICANS PAY EXTREME OVER-THE-TOP PRICES AT TH EGAS PUMP THAT THE OIL INDUSTRY IS UNLOADING ALL ITS EFFORTS AND ALL ITS RESOURCES INTO OPPOSING SENATOR OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN.

    Use YOUR common sense, folks.
