Desperation? Delusion? Demogoging? All three? You be the judge:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday shut the door on expanding oil and gas drilling beyond areas that have already been approved for energy exploration, drawing a clear distinction from her counterparts in charge of the Senate.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This call for drilling in areas that are protected is a hoax, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an absolute hoax on the part of the Republicans and this administrationÃ¢â‚¬Â Pelosi said at her weekly press conference. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a decoy to punt your attention away from the fact that their policies have produced $4-a-gallon gasoline.Ã¢â‚¬Â
So, Pelosi believes that the man-made global warming theory is an iron-clad fact but those who say that more domestic oil drilling and refinement will bring down prices are perpetrating a hoax? Wow. Pelosi’s plastic surgeon went one crank too tight on the last facelift.
Why don’t Dems such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry “the undertaker” Reid seem more worried about the fact that the approval ratings of the Democrat-controlled Congress are in the toilet? Why do they continue to buck public opinion on the drilling issue? Because they know their constituents will probably re-elect them anyway. The motto of the Democrat Party isn’t “Dopes spring eternal” for nothing.
If you’re the “gotta see it to believe it” type, here’s a very short video from Pelosi’s press conference. Put on your waders:
