Tom Leppert: Drill, Baby, Drill!
Yesterday we covered Dallas Mayor-turned-U.S. Senate candidate Tom Leppert's position on National Public Radio. This afternoon, on the Facebook, I got this note from Not Mayor Tom:
Excited to launch our new petition calling on President Obama to stop our dependence on foreign oil, boost natural gas production, and create jobs here at home. Sign today and share the petition with your friends!
OK already! Here's the petition. But long story short: He feels your pain at the pump -- just like John Boehner! -- and wants you to tell President Obama to get to drillin' in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Very original.
