Oil, Oil, everywhere, but not a drop to drill!

The Pelosi Dems in the House have passed a bill claiming to open the US Continental Shelf to perfectly safe oil exploration and drilling, but actually locking it up for another decade or two. If they did nothing, the existing prohibitions would just expire in October. Please, please do nothing! Just get out of town, adjourn, go home. 

And if the Dems really want to keep sabotaging our national energy supplies, let's throw the bums out. And hope they bounce hard a couple of times on the cobbles.

Newt Gingrich is doing a beautiful job on this one, at American Solutions. As Newt points out, the USGS just announced a 25-fold increase in the estimated oil reserves in the Bakken Formation alone, over the 1995 estimate.  

Writes the US Geological Survey:

"The Bakken Formation estimate is larger than all other current USGS oil assessments of the lower 48 states and is the largest "continuous" oil accumulation ever assessed by the USGS."

We are afloat on a sea of oil -- on the Continental Shelf, in the Bakken Formation in Montana and North Dakota, in gigantic oil shale formations in the US and Canada, in Colombia and the Arctic.    It's oil, oil everywhere. But not a drop to drill.

As long as Nancy Pelosi says No, we don't get any of it. Leave it to Iran, Saudi, Russia and Chavez to run the world's oil. Let the American automobile drivers and airlines and home heating customers be damned.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge said it:

"Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink."

That was the Ancient Mariner lost at sea. As a country we are just as lost with energy as long as we carry the albatross of liberal perversity around our necks.

What is it about liberals and sabotage?  On every big issue  they find high-flown reasons to make really destructive choices. It makes me wonder if they start out their lives as saboteurs and then find glorious reasons to screw the country.

Come to think of it, that could be true.

It would explain a lot.
