The president made the suggestion during a speech to workers at Lincoln Electric, a welding plant in Euclid, Ohio, near Cleveland.
The suggestion got a big laugh. The president then turned serious and once again called on Congress to increase U.S. energy supplies by allowing offshore drilling on the outer continental shelf and in part of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve.
Bush’s visit to Ohio is also to raise money for Republican candidates.
