Schweitzer: Energy sense from Montana

Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer devoted most of his prime-time speech tonight to issues of energy independence.

Here's a great line: "We can't drill our way to energy independence, even if we drilled in all McCain's backyards, even the ones he doesn't know he has."

He also said that McCain wants more of the same Bush/Cheney non-energy policy. "McCain voted 25 times against renewable energy, biofuels, solar energy and even wind power. McCain took more than $1 million in contributions from energy companies. Now he wants to give those same energy companies $4 billion in tax breaks."

Do we need four more years of the same? NO!!!
