John McCain Raking In Big Oil Bucks

Since John McSame changed his position to George W. Bush's position: in favor of off-shore oil drilling, the oil companies gave him over $750,000. Big Oil will profit if off-shore drilling is allowed, not American consumers.

Another flipflip by McCain, this one for the cold, hard cash.

John McCain: Four more years of Bush. Bush has tripled gas prices during his term. Want $12/gallon gas? Vote for John McCain.

WaPo: Industry Gushed Money After Reversal on Drilling

Campaign contributions from oil industry executives to Sen. John McCain rose dramatically in the last half of June, after the senator from Arizona made a high-profile split with environmentalists and reversed his opposition to the federal ban on offshore drilling.

Oil and gas industry executives and employees donated $1.1 million to McCain last month -- three-quarters of which came after his June 16 speech calling for an end to the ban -- compared with $116,000 in March, $283,000 in April and $208,000 in May.
