We Americans have to grow up

Former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel was the only Democratic candidate in last week's presidential debate who did not sympathize with complaints about high gas prices. He said that as president, he would not to anything to reduce prices at the pump but instead would confront the issue of U.S. dependency on foreign oil. In a refreshingly candid response Gravel said, “We Americans have to grow up. If we want to get off the dependency in the Middle East, we have to own up to the problem, these things cost money.”
