DDD Nancy Pelosi Trying To Save The Planet

The don't drill Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi is refusing to allow any votes in the House on any drilling for oil to help relieve prices at the pump because she is "trying to save the planet". She also tries in vain to blame the GOP for it failed policies but oil prices did not start to skyrocket till after the Democrats took over both houses of Congress in '06 just as deficit spending also exploded under their control.

With fewer than 20 legislative days before the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, the entire appropriations process has largely ground to a halt because of the ham-handed fighting that followed Republican attempts to lift the moratorium on offshore oil and gas exploration. And after promising fairness and open debate, Pelosi has resorted to hard-nosed parliamentary devices that effectively bar any chance for Republicans to offer policy alternatives.

“I’m trying to save the planet; I’m trying to save the planet,” she says impatiently when questioned. “I will not have this debate trivialized by their excuse for their failed policy.”

Nancy now has a serious problem on her hands because she represents probably the most liberal district in America in San Francisco and home to several major environmental groups that fund her but 70% of America wants to drill and her caucus will have to face angry constituents. On the Senate side the GOP is holding to its promise to shut down the upper house till a full debate and vote on drilling can take place causing Dem Leader Harry Reid to partially cave in by offering a compromise causing outrage from the liberal Democrats in both houses since they know they will lose if it comes up for a vote.
If the Democrats continue to obstruct a vote on oil production they are handing the GOP a major campaign issue just as the race to November starts heating up. The GOP is offering a do it all approach to energy production and the Democrats are offering a do nothing approach besides raising taxes and sueing OPEC, their answer to everything, taxes or lawsuits.

It's one thing to have a different opinion than sane people, but to have an opinion that harms America as well is sickening.

Nasty Nanci is a national disgrace.

The Donks have dropped the ball here and if the GOP will play it right it can change the entire political dynamic of this election.

Nancy Pelosi is trying to save the world! LOL! I wonder if she really believes that? It's hard to tell what these people really believe other than that they believe in socialism. I pray that Americans wake up and vote such idiots out of office.

Every GOP ad this fall should have Pelosi's video showing her saying that she wants to save the world.

Talk about insulting hyperbole.

She seems to infer that anyone that opposes her actually wants to destroy the world.
