    Well this was nice to read today.

    This is going to be part of the bill which is good also.
    Let's hope the gop steps up the plate so the bill moves swiftly.

    Sadly ... like I keep saying ... we have been hearing it since the gas crisis in the 1970's.

    I agree on this. Didn't they block the vote months ago?

    Is this not just trying to buy votes?

    If Clinton didn't veto it the oil would be flowing today.

    Anwar is a "Holy Place" for democrats, they have pictures of the frozen tundra in their bedrooms and before they go to bed each night they kneel and pray to their "polar bear god".

    IMO I could care less.

    I guess on one hand you could say they are and on the other hand one could say they are acting on the will of the people which is their job. I think when politicians change their mind it is okay if that change reflects what is good for the majority.

    The devil is always in the details. But the lefties running for office have now changed from "no drilling', to "limited drilling", to "responsible drilling".

    I suspect that the only drilling they are really for is in a dentist office. Notice I said lefties and not Democrats. There are a good number of Democrats who are for a "do everything" approach to energy, but lefty Nancy has blocked that kind of a bill.

    Politically that is what would be expected. The republicans asked for all knowing they were going to get some and some is better than none. If we can even produce say 200,000 barrels a day more than world wide demand we will get somewhere.

    of course ... when we do start drilling OPEC will reduce their output. smartly, the democrats are putting alternative energy into the bill and as we all know anything else is reckless.

    the gop will cry foul and scream politics ... but like i said ... who cares. We need this bill and more ... pelosi ought to ram through a few more while Bush is a lame duck President.

    Again, what are the details? If it is not all inclusive, meaning do everything, that it's just a cheap political ploy and won't amount to anything.
