What a Rube! He said: "By raising awareness of the price of oil subsidies, and how a reduction could benefit the public, Goldberg hopes to drum support for President Obama's jobs bill.

"What we want is for Congress to turn that around," Goldberg said. "The Republican Congress is not going to turn that around, we're going to have to turn Congress around."

What the hell do oil subsidies have to do with obamas 'jobs bill' (stimulus part II)?
Of course, being the leftist shill he is, Rube thinks that only Republicans oppose the latest black hole (stimulus) that we're being asked to throw money at (because the last time, it went so well). What about the lack of support for this latest deficit increasing bill from within obamas own party? And the Dem controlled Senate?

These guys are so well coached with their Alinsky-like talking points, they have no concept of reality. I wonder if this guy drove his car to get to the protest---probably not a Chevy Volt, either.

Why don't they protest at a congressmans/congresswomans office if they are trying to get congress to act. Then they could protest against all of the subsidies going to big business, like big farming, banks, etc.

Why isn't anyone protesting at Solyndra? At least Chevron is a highly successful domestic corporation providing jobs and great returns on investment. Solyndra took government loan guarantees and spent the loans on who knows what, then layed off their entire work force.
