This is an all expenses paid rent-a-mob. Do not be fooled into believing the group speaks for any real, everyday Americans. The representatives of those Americans are inside the House talking about the "All of the Above" Energy Plan. #dontgo.
“Republicans have been escalating their attacks on [Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.)] and the Democrats over oil drilling, and we need to push back hard,” the group said in an e-mail to supporters, asking them to come to a 4 p.m. rally at the Capitol.
“Speaker Pelosi blocked their plan because it won't help lower gas prices—but it will line the pockets of Big Oil executives, the same people donating millions of dollars to Republicans,” the e-mail said. “But Republicans are working hard to make it seem like they're fighting for cash-strapped commuters—and not the oil companies who wrote their plan.”
The group plans to point to the ties between the GOP and Big Oil.
“We’ve invited the media, and having a good crowd is critical to show them that voters don’t want oil industry gimmicks—they want real solutions like alternative energy to solve our energy crisis,” the e-mail said."

Just More Oil-Drilling Gimmicks?
Proving they live in an alternative reality that is funded by the deep pockets of George Soros - a man that has made it his mission in life to bring the United States down to servant status to the United Nations - MoveOn.org will stage a rally on the Capitol steps today at 4:00 p.m. Eastern to protest the "gimmicks" of the oil companies that want to drill off-shore.
