Obama, Pelosi and the Don’t Drill Democrats

Email Email Print

“You can’t drill your way out of this problem” Nancy Pelosi declared last week after House democrats refused to lift the ban on oil exploration on the outer continental shelf –at least 50 miles from American shores.

Of course the only way to get more oil and thus decrease the price is to in fact drill. Oil is obtained only by drilling. The casual indifference to reality displayed by the Speaker mirrors the Democrats’ indifference to the economic pain being inflicted by their steadfast refusal to allow America to tap its own reserves.

The Don’t Drill Democrats will have a lot to answer for at the polls in November if the GOP keeps the focus on the extremism of the majority on this issue. Perhaps the House GOP ought to offer this amendment: When and only if oil hits $200 a barrel then exploration on the outer continental shelf can begin.

Is there any cost the democrats are unwilling to see average Americans bear without acting?
