Gas Could Hit $10 A Gallon And The Democrats Still Object To Drilling

Unbelievable the Democrats don't care at all about the people if they object to drilling for oil now even if gas prices hit $10 a gallon at the pump, what abject stupidity.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel tries to find a trigger point when drilling would begin and Democrat Ken Salazar continues to object and his state sits on a motherlode of oil that would benefit his constituents. As Allahpundit points out the campaign ads will write themselves if the Democrats continue their kowtowing to the radical environmentalists. Heck even in my nutty state of California a slim majority want to get that oil off our coast. Just remember everytime you pump all that hard earned cash into your gas tank that the Democrats are to blame lock stock and barrel.
In the House the Democrats voted to go on their summer vacation instead of voting on an energy bill while many Americans are cancelling their vacations because of the high price of gas. No wonder the Democrat controlled Congress has a 9% approval rating, the lowest in history but they had time to vote to apologize for slavery that ended over 150 years ago. So something that happened in our long gone past is more important to the Democrats than something that is hurting millions of Americans and small businesses today the cost of energy.

It's because they simply don't care about us, only their dystopian vision of what would be best for us.

You are correct Tap, not only do taxpayers pay for their gas we pay for their rental cars, just another congressional beni at our expense.

The only conclusion available: The Democrats no longer represent any of the people, save extremist wack-environmentalists; Democrats no longer care about the people; and Democrats are now the enemies of the people.

That they are now our enemies is entirely of their own doing.

And this will cost them not just the White House, but more--they're just too dumb to understand that.

I think the relevant phrase is "Let them eat cake!"...

They say they are "the party of the people." They never said which people they are the party of. Obviously it's not the American people.
