DENVER (CNN) - The Democrats have been put on the defensive on the energy issue because of McCain’s call for more drilling. What’s the Democrats’ response? You heard it from Secretary Pena just now: renewable energy means more American JOBS.

    C from Texas: do that math. There has been a total of 2 years since Carter that the Dems had control of Congress and the Presidency ('92-'94).

    Reagan came to office and tore out the solar panels on the White House roof. The Dems had the foresight to look into renewable energy, but the GOP has stayed in the Stone Age.

    I've been waiting for someone to answer my question; How does off shore drilling have any revelance to energy independance or gasoline prices, as the oil corps buy the leases from the USA,and as far as I know, they can sell it to whoever they want?So the oil companys, put the oil on the world market and sell it to who they want,how does that help anyone, but big oil? Besides, I understand the refinerys are only working at 85% capacity.
