Bush to Congress: Get Going on Domestic Oil Drilling
By Susan Jones
CNSNews.com Senior Editor
June 09, 2008

(CNSNews.com) - "The United States has an opportunity to help increase the supply of oil on the market," thereby easing gasoline prices for hard-working Americans," President Bush said on Monday.

He reminded Congress that he has proposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Continental Shelf to domestic oil drilling -- something that would "help us through this difficult period."

The President has been pushing this for seven years now, the libs and evironmentalist have been stabbing us in the back all along.

An interesting thing that I heard last week came from a caller on the radio who believes we will ultimately lose the war on terror and collapse as a country. According to his views the OPEC countries that dislike us and our policies will help the terror groups by slowly destroying our economy through oil costs. Between them and the US hating libs in this country he may be correct.

Until the people of this country stand up and tell the Democrats in congress that we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore, and then use our voting power to oust them from power, we won't see these areas opened up to domestic drilling. It's time for the people to get their head out of the sand and realize that it's time to stand together on this issue.

I am not a sky is falling kind of person,
but if one looks at these facts and the facts of the low value of the dollar against all other foreign currencies, our huge trade deficits, as well as continued "the foreign investment" of buying up our debt in the form of real property or American corporations, it all adds up to some real s*&$ hitting the fan...
Our dem led legislature holds the balance of this nations fate in it's hands and yet has done nothing productive since taking power 2 years ago. It sees a multi billion dollar bill proposed, to be spent on global climate change as a top priority and worthy of wasting their time.
Oh, I forgot shreeker of the house pelosi did change the menu at the cafeteria...

Bush is such a disapointment, even for people like me ( Bush voters but not Bush supporters). He is so profoundly moronic. Just like everything elese he proposes, then dosen't fight for, too little too late. Screw Bush and the RINO's. While I won't vote for O'Bama, neither will I vote for McLaim. I wish our country well under the O'Bama ocupation. S/T

They've been stalling till they got one of their own in the white house. Which they will now get in November. Then we'll see some hope and change and not in a good way.

Republicans block extra taxes on oil companies

WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans blocked a proposal Tuesday to tax the windfall profits of the largest oil companies, despite pleas by Democratic leaders to use the measure to address America's anger over $4 a gallon gasoline.

The Democratic energy package would have imposed a tax on any "unreasonable" profits of the five largest U.S. oil companies and given the federal government more power to address oil market speculation that the bill's supporters argue has added to the crude oil price surge.[/b]

It seems the Democrats in congress think we can just tax our way out of anything and everything.

"From GOP leader John Boehner’s office. Discharge this, Nancy Pelosi:"

"House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement on a discharge petition filed by Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) to force Democratic leaders to schedule a vote on the No More Excuses Energy Act (H.R. 3089), legislation authored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX) to increase U.S. energy production and invest in alternative sources of energy:"

“The Democratic Majority’s callous indifference as American families and small businesses struggle with $4 per gallon gasoline is both inexcusable and irresponsible. By flatly refusing to schedule votes on the House GOP plan to help reduce fuel costs and achieve energy independence, the Democrats in control of Congress are proving themselves complicit in our nation’s energy crisis, which is growing worse by the day on their watch. "

“Where Democrats refuse to lead, Republicans will. Beginning today, House Republicans will offer a series of discharge petitions aimed at forcing the Democratic leadership to schedule several GOP-sponsored bills to increase production of American-made energy, reduce America’s costly dependence on foreign sources of energy, harness new alternative energy technologies, and lower gas prices. I thank Rep. Tim Walberg for offering the first discharge petition in this effort – one that seeks to force Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer to schedule Rep. Mac Thornberry’s No More Excuses Energy Act. The Thornberry bill will open new American oil refineries, invest in alternative energy sources, and increase environmentally-safe exploration of untapped oil resources in the United States. "

“Rep. Walberg’s discharge petition provides rank-and-file Democrats an important opportunity to back up their rhetoric on gas prices with real action. By joining House Republicans in supporting it, they can send a long-overdue message to the Democratic leadership: American consumers are hurting, and this Congress has a responsibility to act on meaningful legislation aimed to bring down soaring prices at the pump.”

"NOTE: The No More Excuses Energy Act would help reduce the price of gasoline by opening new American oil refineries; investing in diverse energy sources such as wind, nuclear, and captured carbon dioxide; and making available more homegrown energy through environmentally-sensitive exploration of the Arctic coastal plain and in deep ocean energy resources. A recent Gallup survey indicated that 57 percent of Americans support increased production of American-made energy. For more information on the House GOP’s comprehensive plan for lower gas prices, please visit the House GOP’s

It's prety hard to blame the republicans, when the dems have had complete control under ms pelosis leadership and have not done a damn thing...

The Dems don't want the economic problems to either slow or cease..However, if the public realizes how they are stonewalling any
efforts to help them out of their present inconvenience, the Dems could pay.
Just don't know if McCain has the moxie to point out in no uncertain terms, just how ruthless the Dems are .

Kevin McCarthy wrote a great article that was in today's fish wrap on this very topic. And he lays the blame directly at the feet of the dem led congress, with ms pelosi and her promise right at the top...
One should not make promises, one can't keep...
