EXCERPT: WASHINGTON -- The House passed legislation Thursday to require the Obama administration to move ahead this year with lease sales -- three in the Gulf of Mexico and one off the coast of Virginia -- that were canceled by the administration after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The vote was 266-149, with 33 Democrats - including Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans - voting "yes" and 2 Republicans voting "no."
The administration opposed the bill which it said would "hastily open areas of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic using outdated (National Environmental Policy Act) analysis that was conducted before the Deepwater Horizon oil spill." "The Administration has strengthened NEPA analysis in light of lessons learned from the spill," the Office of Management and Budget said in a statement Thursday, noting that the Department of Interior already "intends to hold all three Gulf of Mexico lease sales referenced in the bill by mid-2012."
Ronaldus Magnus the Pathfinder SHOWED US THE WAY! Good God, he literally wrote the playbook for beating Democrats yet the gutless/spineless/nutless GOP prefers to play patty cake with the Liberals as the Liberals keep giving them a battery acid enema! On Friday, May 6, 2011, the House passed a bill that would force the Obama administration to sell offshore drilling permits in the Gulf of Mexico and offshore on the Virginia coast.
You'll never guess what happened.
The price of oil fell 8.6% in one day! IN ONE DAY! BTW, that is the largest price drop in over two years! The same thing happened when Bush 43 removed the ban on drilling when gas prices were skyrocketing, yet Obama immediately put that ban BACK in place and here we are.
This is how stupid liberals are.
"They say, 'it's supply and demand,'" said Rep Peter DeFazio, D-Ore.. "It's not supply and demand. It's market manipulation. It's price gouging. It's profiteering. It's speculation. Do something about it."
Really? Then this bill should have done NOTHING to drop oil prices so dramatically right Mr. Dumbass DeFazio? Because it's all speculation, as you and your messiah pule about.
Even dumber is Obama's recent whine: "The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away." (April 23, 2011) Just ANOTHER Obama LIE because H.R. 1230, The Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act, passed by a Republican Congress, just dropped oil prices, which WILL lead to lower gas prices. But keep spiking the football moron. More importantly, Obama is threatening a VETO! Please Imam Obama, throw that rabbit into the briar patch! But are the Republicans touting this on national TV? NOPE. Are the Republicans trying to hang the oil ban/high prices around Barry's neck? NOPE. Dear GOP, there is an old saying that goes, "Strike while the iron is hot."
This is the way to victory folks. Pass legislation that goes directly against the Obama/Marxist agenda and that HELPS America, and then play pin that sh*t on Barry's ass all of the way to the election. The GOP could be running commercials RIGHT NOW that ask the voters out there that if they want lower gas prices and lower energy prices, then vote Republican. If the want a stronger economy, more jobs, and an energy independent America, vote Republican. And then DO IT! No army ever won being on the defensive so it is time for the GOP to find their balls, push a CONSERVATIVE candidate forward, and kick some lib ass...for once.
Here are three steps for the GOP, courtesy of Gunny G
1. Crush your enemies...
2. See them driven before you...
3. Hear the lamantations of their women... (or gay lover i.e., Bonnie Fwank)
Also, more oil companies, more drilling, more refineries, not only gives us a stronger America and a stronger economy, it gives us competition that ensures lowers prices through the free market.
Oh, BTW, TWO scumbag Republicans voted AGAINST this bill. One was Walter Jones, NC-3 and the other was Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana FL-18. The Gunny wonders if the GOP will back them next election or punish them by endorsing a CONSERVATIVE opponent.
PS: Hawaii paying $6 a gallon for gas. GOOD! How's those libs working for ya Hawaii?
