VIDEO: McCain ad tries to pander to all sides simultaneously
Right after that, the ad supports tax credits for clean vehicles. This, of course, is followed by the mantra of "drill baby, drill!" It doesn't actually use that phrase, but does express support for off-shore drilling on the grounds that it would "reduce the cost of gas and spur truck sales." The primary reason there is suddenly so much interest in electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles is because of that high cost of fuel. Reducing the price of fuel would reduce the demand for more efficient vehicles and act counter to that re-tooling the ad mentions only seconds earlier. After all, it is the same plants that build those trucks that McCain says he wants to spur sales of that are being re-tooled. Tell us Mr. McCain, what is it you stand for?
