John McCain said in a speech the Republican Party was good for business. He is right. As a case in point: During the past seven years his party has promoted two ongoing wars, borrowed money to pay for these costs and promoted tax cuts — leading to a substantial devaluation of the dollar against other currencies.

The Republican Party has fought against joining other nations in fighting carbon emissions and has a virtually nonexistent track record in promoting alternative energy.

All of this has been extremely beneficial in creating windfall profits for Big Oil.
