McCain credits Bush for drop in oil prices

<...on Wednesday credited the recent $10-a-barrel drop in the price of oil to President George W. Bush's lifting of a presidential ban on offshore drilling, an action he has been advocating in his presidential campaign.>

McCain also said that, if elected, he would have a news conference once a week.

He also suggested that he would regularly submit himself to questioning before the House speaker and minority leader just as "the British prime minister goes before Parliament and answers some pretty interesting questions."

Weekly news conferences and submitting himself to questioning - he will wear himself out!

McCain blames Obama for high gas prices. McCain credits Bush for a drop in oil prices...

It's a pattern. I can feel it...
