I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

< Part 2 of 4 – see links below >

Every time we have heard Democrats whine and moan about energy dependence, every time prices of gasoline have spiked and they do hearings on windfall profits of Big Oil, there’s a solution to this.

Then we hear Obama say, “No drilling for oil, why, that’s just sticking to the failed policies of the past.”

Excuse me… The failed policies of the past! What?

The discovery and the drilling and the extraction, refining, and the distribution of petroleum products is a failed policy of the past?

What, pray tell, is his new policy of the future?

Nothing that’s going to pay off any time soon.

He sits there and says, “Well, drilling isn’t going to reduce prices any time soon, not right now.”

Nothing that these people are proposing will, either.

You could put all those stupid compact fluorescent lightbulbs you can find in your house, it’s not going to produce any more energy and it’s not going to reduce the price of gasoline. And you can unplug your cell phone charger and your toaster and computer and whatever else. You could put solar panels on your house. You could put solar panels on the roof of your hybrid; it isn’t going to make gasoline any cheaper.

You can put windmills wherever you don’t want them. It ain’t going to make gasoline any cheaper.


There is no substitute for oil, and there isn’t going to be any time soon.

So this whole notion that we’re not going to be able to lower the price any time soon by drilling, not gonna get lower prices right now, nothing else that the people are proposing will do so, either.

PRESIDENT: I know the Democratic leaders have opposed some of these policies in the past.

Some?… mmmm… yea right,

PRESIDENT: Now that their opposition has helped drive gas prices to record levels, I asked them to reconsider their positions.

If congressional leaders leave for their Fourth of July recess without taking action, they will need to explain why four-dollar-a-gallon gasoline is not enough incentive for them to act. Americans will rightly ask how high gas prices have to rise before the Democrat-controlled Congress will do something about it.

Whatever the price is on January 20th next year, if Obama is elected president is when they’ll start caring about it, or inaugurated, if he is. The Democrats have already dug in.

They do have a reply to this. They’ve got their talking points and they’re lying through their teeth about it. And you may have heard it. Bill Nelson of Florida, is out there saying that, (paraphrasing) “Hey, the federal government’s already leased a whole bunch of land to the big oil companies; they’re not even using it.”

It’s such a smoke screen, the number of years left on these leases is very few, and the whole thing is a lie anyway.

I have the figures to prove it. – see post 4 in this series

They blame it on everything but themselves, and their no-drill, no-refine, no-nuclear-plant policies, and that’s exactly who they are: the no-drill, no-refine, no-nuclear-plant Democrats.
