In this article--NationalJournal.com - Hatch: Dems Need to Lay Off Big Oil - Friday, May 13, 2011--You will discover what I suffered through over this weekend on C-Span. The best part of this attempted flogging of Big Oil by committee chair Sen. Baucus was when Sen. Orin Hatch brought out his depiction of this hearing as a dog and pony show; and said he knew who the dog represents and who the pony was; "AND WHO THE HORSE'S ASS IS TOO" while glancing at Baucus.
The glaring truth of the matter is--Thie Obama Regime has no energy policy--only a political agenda driven by the radical environmentalists and driving this nation nowhere fast.
In his weekend address Obummer attemted to address the lack of administration policy with the same old class warfare attack on the oil industry--while claiming to OK lease aggreements which will start drilling on more Alaskan and offshore sites. I will believe this Big Fat One when I see the evidence.
It remains perfectly clear to me that these drilling rights have about as much chance of passing through all the hoops and obstacles that the Left has put in the way as Texas has of getting any assistance from this totaly partisan and corrupt administration.
