Barack's Oil Desperation

Is Barack soft? Here's his reason why drilling for oil - a national security imperative to people who are paying attention to reality - is unnecessary.

"There are things that you can do individually though to save energy," Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, said. "Making sure your tires are properly inflated, simple thing, but we could save all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling, if everybody was just inflating their tires and getting regular tune-ups. You could actually save just as much."
Jake Tapper at ABC, and others, provide calculations to demonstrate why Barack's assertion is incorrect, but the real point is that it's not an either/or situation. Everyone should take care of their cars to maximize efficiency, but we must face up to urgent need to get off of foreign oil, and all reasonable measures should be pursued to achieve that end.
