I hear what you are saying but I don't like stalling on something so important just for political gain. I think many people see through that and will think both sides are playing politics. If we can start drilling now and people see prices go down, as they did when Bush signed the EO to lift the Federal ban on offshore drilling, I think the Republican Party will rightfully get credit for pushing the issue.
I totally agree!
I would rather live a few months longer with the high gas prices than giving the Democrats a filibuster proof Senate. Can you imagine what legislation they can sail through without any opposition. There would be some slowdown with McCain, but if Obama wins it’s lights out. We become a socialist state.
Come back Mon. and have CSPAN cover them. Then run national ads on this energy snafu and run it for .30 seconds in all 435 districts. Why not? Newt did it in ‘94 with a national campaign and it worked.
