Pelosi And Reid's Divisive Nature:
No Oil And Bush A Jerk
Reid, speaking about President George W. Bush said:
"He's got a 29 percent approval rating."
Bush has approval ratings three times better than those of Congress. Harry must not be capable of doing the most simple of mathematical equations.
Nanny, in supporting the Democrat position of not drilling for domestic oil, cited a 1969 oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, California as reason not to drill off our coastal shores. IHT:
"We learned the hard way that oil and water do not mix on our coast," Pelosi told a key committee in 1996 as she made her case for keeping the ban in place before a Congress then controlled by Republicans.
1969? That was 39 years ago. I wonder Nanny is aware of how much technology has advanced in the past 39 years? I wonder if Nanny is still using a rotary dial telephone and if she has to change the channel on a television set by physically moving a dial on the television? ?
I wonder if oil and energy companies are using the exact same technology in oil exploration and drilling that they used in 1969? Nanny apparently thinks so, in her mind nothing has changed since then. Remember, this the woman who, after taking office as Speakeress in January 2007, demanding a huge, fuel-consuming jet liner as her travel perk for her personal use. She should have been given a prop plane manufactured in 1969 since that is the year in which she seems to be stuck.
Pelosi also said of President Bush that he is...
"...a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject," Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for "challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his mess over and over and over again."
Oh, Nanny made sure the Congress cafeteria catered to a more refined palate eliminating meatloaf for mahi mahi and lamb with almond couscous from the menu, but what does this do for average Americans, rising prices and the cost of gasoline? Not a damn thing.
The IHT story notes that Blue Dog Democrats support drilling for oil in ANWR and off the coasts. This should tell us something, namely that even the Blue Dogs "get it" when it comes to energy and oil. But the Insane Liberal Clown Posse with leaders Nanny and Harry - nope, they don't get it. They are Elitists.
Here's a brief refresher from what I wrote on on April 27, 2007:
The price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in January 2001 when George W. Bush took his oath of office was $1.46.
The price for a gallon of gas when the Republicans lost their majority in November 2006 was $2.19.
The price for a gallon of gas in January 2007, when the Democrat Majority and Speakeress Nanny Pelosi were sworn into office, was $2.30.
The average price for a gallon of gas today is around $3.50.
So, from when Bush took office in January 2001 to January 2007 when the Democrats were sworn into office - six years years later - the price per gallon increased by .73 cents, or an increase of .12 cents per year.
From January 2001 to January 2007 - six years - the price of gasoline of gasoline increased by .73 cents or .12 cents per year.
From January 2007 when Nanny and Harry and the Democrats took the majority to July 2008 the price of a gallon of gas has increase $1.70!
In January 2007 the price of a barrel of oil was around $50. Today, a mere 19 months later, the price has almost tripled under a Democrat Congress.
Monday, April 24, 2006 from from Nanny Pelosi's own website:
“Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.”
The production of alternative fuels such as ethanol has increased. What has it done to lower the price of gasoline? Of course, no farmer or corporation would be manufacturing ethanol or alternative energy without government subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief. Is anyone seeing a decrease in the cost of gasoline or diesel because of this? Has increased production of alternative fuels reduced or increased the costs of food and all other everyday items that travel to your local grocery or department via trucks?
We could fill the Senate with 100 horses, as Caligula allegedly did with his horse Incitatus in the Roman Senate and we could fill the 438 House seats with monkeys. I don't know that they could do any worse than the current Congress.
She's acting like a little kid "well... so what if no one likes me... he's... he's... he has... errr... bad breath".
Nanny and Harry's pupils are all diluted from the sticky, sweet skunk ganja they been puffing! ;-)
Pelosi is a fraud, Bug. So is Harry. So are most libs. They are beholden and owned by the hardcore LeftTards. They are hijacking the Democrat party that once belonged to my parents and grandparents, the Dems of the JFK era. And in many ways, that;s a shame JFK wouldn't recognize his own party if her were alive today.
Yes... as I've said, my step father who is no longer with us, would probably switch over to the Replicans or just not vote; and that's saying a lot for that man.
Grabbing images and adding captions is where it all starts. In no time you would master pho-shopping or ??? I forget the other big name brand software that does the same as Pho-shop. There's many out there, some maybe even freeware. Surf around and see what's there. Download.com is a fine place to find 'safe' freeware, but make sure you read the user reveiws.
Agree that today's Dem party isn't the party of our parents or grandparents. No doubt about it.
Her parents were Kennedy Democrats, and she kind of went hippy kind of bought into Gloria Steinem…
Then got polarized by the Clintons and you can’t even talk to her anymore. It makes me sad sometimes…
Also as a side note I composed this in Word 2003 and when I spell checked it found and corrected Femi Nazi
Got'cha. Much better understood.
My mom is (and as was my late dad -style Democrats for the most part. JFK Dems, if you want to identify it a bit more, tho I do believe that my dad voted for Dole over Clinton in 1996, my dad voting for the War Veteran over the Draft Dodger.
The Far Left has hi-jacked the party and the Moderate/JFK Dems either don;t seem to care or don't want to fight. I don't get it.
That's funny that Word 2003 would recognize and correctly spell Femi Nazi!
