Moonbat Pelosi, Plantetary Savior

“I’m trying to save the planet!”

The Democrat leadership once again shows their priorities: you can go screw; caribou, sea lions, and lobsters are more important.

Congressional Republicans are stepping up attacks on Democrats who are blocking votes on oil drilling legislation, homing in on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was quoted saying that she wants “to save the planet.”

Pelosi, in an interview published Tuesday in Politico.com, defended her efforts to stall spending bills, saying as speaker she decides which bills will make it to the House floor.

“I’m trying to save the planet. ... I will not have this debate trivialized by their excuse for their failed policy,” Pelosi said. “When you win the election, you win the majority, and what is the power of the speaker? To set the agenda, the power of recognition, and I am not giving the gavel away to anyone.”

Nancy is in charge, thank you. She has the power! But that also means she has the responsibility ... and this bunch hasn’t accomplished a damn thing in 2 solid years. And since Nancy is in charge and setting the agenda and deciding what gets recognized, therefore she is completely to blame. It’s a good thing we don’t have Sharia Law, because the right response is that of the Red Queen.

Ahead of a Republican press conference Tuesday focusing on stalled energy priorities, House Minority Leader John Boehner responded ...

“She’s got time to go out and promote her new book tour and her new book, but she doesn’t have time to schedule a vote on the floor of the House and let the American people have their will expressed?”

Boehner blamed Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama for preventing relief.

“For 25 years, Democrats have blocked more American-made oil and gas. That’s why we’re in the predicament we’re in,” said Boehner, R-Ohio. Voters want Congress “to vote on more American made oil and gas. We want to do that. She, Harry Reid, Barack Obama are standing in the way.”

House and Senate Democrats are using their control of Congress to avoid voting on opening up the Outer Continental Shelf and the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve to oil exploration, which they say is unnecessary because oil companies already have leases to millions of acres of federal land.

While this is slightly “truthy”, just because the oil companies have leases doesn’t actually mean they are permitted to put a drill bit into the ground. Nor does the existence of a lease mean that oil or gas has been located. On the other hand, we know where lots of oil and gas are, right offshore. Just ask the Chinese, who are busy drilling for it right off the coast of Florida.

“American families and businesses are struggling with skyrocketing gas prices at the pump, but President Bush and his Republican allies in Congress continue to stand in the way of real relief,” Pelosi said in the statement. “Instead, the Bush-Cheney policy, an energy plan crafted by two oilmen in the White House, revolves around the best interests of Big Oil – from protecting tax breaks to expanding domestic oil and gas drilling.”

Because, you know, I’m going to go take my shovel and dig an oil well out front here in the parking lot. Let’s blame big business for the gas price crisis, and make special taxes to gouge the oil companies because prices are high, and at the same time prevent them from harvesting new sources of the resources ... and then blame them even more when the lack of supply causes the demand to skyrocket. These people are morons. You can’t revoke the Law of Supply and Demand Nancy. And since every other nation on earth with a bit of coastline is out there drilling already as fast as they can, your “save the planet” is a bunch of crap. All it means is “screw the Americans”. That’s not an attitude I want represented in Washington.

Boehner suggested Obama is among Democrats who he says are influenced by a “radical group of environmentalists” pushing higher gas prices.

“If you listen to Barack Obama during the primaries, you know, he didn’t think $5 gas was all that bad. He was just upset it got there so quickly. And what you’ve got, you’ve got a bunch of radical environmentalists who think that we ought to have higher gasoline prices so Americans will drive less,” Boehner said.

Americans are already driving less. But there is a lower limit. Public transportation just isn’t a complete solution for the rural and suburban areas. Carpooling really only works for shift workers who all live in the same neighborhood. And while Detroit is turning to smaller more efficient vehicles again, an awful lot of people can’t afford to go out and buy a new one right now. So most of us have already done about as much as we can; the lower limit has nearly been reached.

With four legislative weeks left before the November elections, after which Congress is likely to punt big issues until the next administration takes office, little time is left to find a means to reduce oil costs, which is blamed for driving up inflation and slowing down the economy.

“They’re trying to run out the clock,” Boehner said.

No kidding. I’ve got a better idea: let’s run them out of office. Both parties, but especially the Dems.

Do Nothing Nancy: her new direction is Straight Down

PS - note how Nancy makes a fist in the above picture. Isn’t that an obscene gesture in Latin America?

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
