Obama is accusing McCain of pulling his energy policy straight out of “the Chaney playbook,” favoring oil, etc. As MSNBC reports, there is an interesting twist to this story:
However, Obama himself voted for a 2005 energy bill backed by Bush that included billions in subsidies for oil and natural gas production, a measure Cheney played a major role in developing. McCain opposed the bill on grounds it included billions in unnecessary tax breaks for the oil industry.
Hat tip my wife.
