|On Sunday afternoon, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), the newest entrant in the GOP presidential race, stopped by the New Hampshire Energy Freedom Family Festival in Manchester, NH, an oil-sponsored event attended by about 350 people. The 'festival' discussed such topics as 'how energy taxes are bad for small business,' 'EPA's burdensome regulations,' and 'the importance of using domestic oil and natural gas.' The NH Energy Forum is one of the dozens of state-level Astroturf groups run by the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry's lobbying group. The national GOP primary race, in fact, is funded by Big Oil -- the Iowa Energy Forum was one of the main sponsors of the Iowa straw poll this weekend.|
