Nothing But Rock

Yet somehow it's the Republicans' fault that we're not drilling in ANWR or off the coast.

Thanks OBG.

Go here and sign the petition to "Drill here, Drill now, Save money" Let congress know that we are pissed and want a change made in our energy policy. If they gotta drill through Rudolphs head to get to the oil, I'm down for it!

Congress....

This cartoon gets right to the heart of the matter.What I will never understand, the conservative Fox network is the most popular,the conservative shows with hosts such as
Hannity ,Limbaugh,O`Reilly & many others are the most popular.......Why do so many Americans continue to support the Liberal Democrats who are responsible for the vast majority of the problems this country faces.

It is true Bush domestically has been a big disappointment in trying to be a Pseudo-Democrat but the very things he is unpopular for are the very things the liberal democrats are pushing.I just cannot compute the inability of the American Voter to see what is right in front of them.

Energy is more than ever,a weapon used against us by our enemies.The drilling for new supplies plus new nuclear power plants should be a matter of national defence and not subject to the vagaries and political point making of the defeatist left.

dudley1 - The trouble is that once the Republicans took over, they started acting like Dimocrats. In 2006 many of the Dimocrats actually ran to the right of the Republicans they defeated. When the voters are offered a fake Dimocrat and a real Dimocrat, they'll pick the real Dimocrat. The current Republican Party just doesn't realize this. That is why they are gonna lose big this fall.

Here's what they should run on.

1. Drill everywhere.
2. No earmarks.
3. Cut spending.

So simple that they're too stupid to see it.

Even the most dense democrat should see that gas prices went up 0.66 cents in six years of Bush/republican congressional control. It has went up (after today) over $1.50 in sixteen months of democrat control of congress. At this rate it will be $15 a gallon after another 4 years of the crazies. I just heard tonight that my power supplier has ask for a 28% rate increase starting in the fall, but then we have a great democrat tax and spend governor so we can't even act surprised. This after the crazies fighting a new modern coal fired power plant in the state. This part of the state lives or dies on the coal industry.

Denny.......

I gotta agree with your take on Republicans getting their asses handed to them this fall with one exception........Obama or Hillary will not be elected to the Presidency,McCain will though that is not a whole lot better except for his willingness to defend this country.

The problem with Republicans being broadsided this election is many of the good ones will go but many of the Rino`s will stay.......It will take a minimum of 12 years to recover the lost ground due to Bush`s Pseudo-democrat wannabe performance.

The really funny thing about TDO`S abject hatred of Dubya is he actually turned out to be a more competent Democratic President then either Gore or Kerry could have ever been. Maybe they will name a bridge for him or put him on a US coin.

TDO`s hatred is for no reason other then just because which is senseless......We are angry because of the destruction brought to the Conservative position & his failure to do what he campaigned for. I know here in Pennsylvania we lost a very good Senator in Rick Santorum but managed to keep Arlen Sphincter in large measure because Bush campaigned for him......It was little consolation "Snarlin Arlen" turned on Bush after he was safely re-elected.

To say I am Disappointed with Bush`s Presidency is an understatement..... I never would have believed given how he started out,the damage that would result from his performance as a Pseudo Democrat.

Ronald Reagan, where are you now that we need you.

Why don't you guys leave supply-side economics to the people on the fed and in the gov't who actually have degrees in the field and institute some demand-side economic policies of your own. Driving less often and more conservatively will push demand down, lowering the price of gas, and putting fewer of your hard-earned American dollars into the hands of the terrorist-funding two-faced Saudis (shit I think the libs might take away my party card for that one). Alternative and sustainable energies further help drive down the cost of fuels by raising the supply of the entire market for fuel and bringing down the demand for any given source of fuel as well as further loosening the Saudis' grip on our national testicles. Can you disagree with that?

Sherpa.....

I suggest you discuss this issue with the people who really understand energy.......It is the consensus we have the proven reserves to eliminate our dependance on foreign oil for the most part were we to develop them. also consider the probable reserves yet to be cerified. My question`s are ,Why not develop them? Why not explore? Why not increase refining capacity? Our enemies are, some right off our coastal waters.

These are questions you should pose to the Liberal Democrats & environmentalists who refuse to respond to our energy problems or to ensure we have adequate energy resources to sustain our economy or be available if we have to go to war.

There is no such thing as a stupid question.....it is however more true a valid question is likely if you gain some knowledge of the subject you wish to raise questions in.

It sickens me to recall how long Republicans had control of congress (and the presidency) to pass legislation that would have removed the barriers to additional drilling and alternative energy.

Apparently they were too busy generating the new RINO line of politician, "The Maverick" TM

Stew - They tried. Unfortunately, they couldn't muster 60 votes in the Senate to prevent a filibuster. It was the Dims and the RINOs who prevented it.
