WASHINGTON, July 14 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, on Monday rejected a call by U.S. President George W. Bush to lift a moratorium on offshore oil drilling.
Bush announced on Monday that he lifted the executive branch's restriction on offshore exploration, saying only Congress stood in the way of opening up America's untapped oil riches.

Bush just rolled Reid and the Dems and they are to stupid to realize it.
He has painted them as the party for no drilling....and they laugh at Bush for being the dumb one.
Bush won this round.
Look for drilling offshore.....soon.
CONTACT CONGRESS TUESDAY JULY 15TH
LET THEM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL
TELL YOUR FRIENDS FAMILY NEIGHBORS AND COWORKERS
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
DRILL HERE - DRILL NOW!!!
LETS FLOOD THE LINES TO CONGRESS TUESDAY JULY 15TH
“Oil makes you sick” according to Harry. After he gets through taking a hiding by the electorate he will be sick, and sorry he ever opposed this. Strategery!
Our guys need to be hammering the Dems with this. As often as they can get in front of a camera or mic!
The dipstick who can't run the senate wants to tell people who actually know how to find oil where they should drill.
Harry: take a long walk on a short dock!
Well, that’s one reason for kicking these libs out of office.
(U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, on Monday rejected a call by U.S. President George W. Bush to lift a moratorium on offshore oil drilling. )
Now what every American that is paying $4 a gallon and votes needs to ask themselves is why?
What reason, that is good for and benefits America and its citizens does the ruling Democrat Party have to reject this idea?
Since there is none based in common sense and logic, then their reasons must be for something or someone other then America and Americans.
The next question you need to ask yoursel,f then is how can you cast a vote for anyone that is acting in the interests of someone or something other then America and Americans.
Sen. McCain: When will you make this an issue?
Way to go Bush showing some nads! Let the Democrats take the heat for the no drilling fiasco!
You've got to be kidding. The envirowennies will have this tied up in court for the next 20 years.
Evwerytime the Rats fight expanded drilling their poll numbers go down.
People aren’t buying that 68 million acre crap because they all know that at $140 a barrel the oil companies would be rushing to get it.
Reid makes me sick, not oil
Tell your Congressmorons that the largest oil producing countries also have the lowest domestic gasoline prices. If the United States were using all available domestic sources, our domestic prices would also be lower. The Congressmorons say drilling won’t help. Well, it would have helped a lot over the past 30 years.
The bans on drilling offshore and in the ANWR should be lifted “yesterday”.
I just don’t think any amount of spin will convince the average American family that we shouldn’t drill for more oil.
Republicans can turn this issue on Democrats come this fall.
He, Pelosi, and the rest of the DemoSocialist enslavers, are digging their long nails into the economic throats of the American people, so that they can control us all, and tell us how successful we are allowed to be.
They are going to destroy Americas prosperity, in this power play, or die trying.
No the public is in no mood....and we got us an election year....they will out pander each other to see who can begin drilling first and claim credit.
You would think voters would be mad at Democrats who stand against drilling with gas prices so high.
Good. Let the Dems “come out of the closet” so-to-speak, and publicly state they are against drilling. This is a winning position of the GOP if they are smart enough to push it.
Voting for Democrats, Is voting for being POOR with Lowered Expectations.
we are not doing well under the Democrat ruled Congress
Why does Congress permit offshore drilling off the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama?
Is it somehow safer there than anywhere else?
Or do they just hate those particular states?
None of those states, by the way, oppose offshore drilling.
I just called his Senate office and asked the staffer to ask McCain the exact same thing. Let’s hope he will listen to the people now, the Democrats have shown today how little they care about the average American.
Don't the voters drive cars in Nevada? Harry Reid should pay on election day.
You could knock me over with a feather after what this idiot dem said about drilling.
Reid is an idiot...the Congressional ban on offshore drilling ***expires*** at the end of September.
Bush wins again!
I haven’t lowered my gas budget yet. However the distance I am able to go is greatly greatly reduced. I only drive to work now and my fishing gas has started coming out of my fun money budget. Another $.25 and will either have to cut into other budget items to pay for work gas or I will literally not be able to afford to drive to work one day a week. Public transport in my city is an absolute joke.
Nevada actually has it worse. 75% of their revenue depends on tourism and if people can’t afford to get there then they go bust.
They should, but they are too concerned with being friends. They seem to not want to hurt any one’s feelings. After all, they loved to be liked.
Too bad we won’t have a candidate who is for it running in November. McCain is a global warming alarmist who pee’s his pants at the thought of any confrontation with any social group.
He doesn’t want to offend anyone...remember that.
Where I live some work 60 miles from their homes and then have to fight traffic for another hour.
“reid rejects bush call to lift drilling moratorium...”
translation: “reid insists on continuing drilling moratorium and depressing american economy-states it is necessary for democrat gains in november...”
(democrats and the exercise of power-scu&bags in action.)
I just drove through Palm Springs, CA and saw what must have been, at least, a thousand or more acres being used for a windfarm. We just laughed at what an eyesore and waste of prime real estate. Plus, we were convinced they were actually using more energy than they were generating! Some areas were going while others were perfectly still...
Didn’t the Rats, just a week or so ago, tell the Prez that he should rescind the exec order, rather than telling Congress to basically do the same? Does anyone recall that?
Markey must be insane.
I do remember that but I can’t remember who said it.
He just did what they asked him to do. I guess they were just bluffing.
The radio news played that idiot Markley saying “Drill,drill,drill, has failed,failed,failed.” It hasn’t been tried yet, you fricking RAT idiot! Stop spouting leftist talking points and cute catch phrases and get out of the way!
Over 70% of Americans are on to the Rats game and are tired of playing.
Let this election be on whether we should drill or not. I think that’s an issue that will destroy the Democrat party. They will be decimated and will wonder how they could have missed it so badly. Let’s take this fight to them. They are WRONG on this and will pay dearly at the polls in November.
“Reid rejects Bush call to lift drilling moratorium (Rats want higher gas prices!)”
Harry just lost the Senate if the stupid party plays this right.
“I do remember that but I cant remember who said it.”
Well, I hope someone can find out who it was. It might have been Red Harry or Nasty Pellagra. Having the two quotes juxtaposed might make for some very interesting comments in the halls of Congress and in attack ads!
You're forgetting how brain dead most voters are. Especially democrat/socialist voters.
Reid and the democrats should move to another country because they are trying to destroy America.
