    Thumbs down John McCain flip-flips on oil drilling, sees oil campaign donations skyrocket

    Who owns you, John McCain? If ever there was a perfect example of how McCain is a third Bush term, here you go. McCain flip flopped on offshore drilling and the results have been immediate. Big Oil is lining his campaign coffers and we all know how that story plays out. $146 dollar barrels of gas and record high prices at the pump. Big Oil has bought John McCain and now they're going to want their return on investment. Tell me again about McCain being a man of principles? What an amazing coincidence in timing as he sought new sources of deep pockets.


    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.

    John 'Bush Redux' McCain is in the pockets of the oil companies. Who would've thunk it?
