To the editor: The Democrats have turned the energy issue into a three-ring circus. Gasoline is now more than $4 a gallon, and this is strangling our economy.
In the Senate ring, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has said on camera coal and oil make us sick and will not allow us (United States) to have any more.
In the House ring, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) is totally refusing to allow any more drilling for oil.
In the presidential campaign ring, Democrat Barack Obama won’t allow drilling for oil, as the time for a drop to reach the market is seven years and it will not help lower prices.
The Democratic Party is deliberately and maliciously choking off the energy supply in the United States. They are destroying America.
Recently, President Bush removed the presidential ban on offshore and Alaska drilling for oil. He challenged Congress to repeal the drilling ban law President Clinton signed in 1996.
Oil is down $16 a barrel in three days, just on the news the President removed his ban. What are the Democrats doing to remove the Congressional ban on drilling? Nothing!
It is time to throw all Democrats out of office who support this no drilling, including Nancy Pelosi’s toady Mike McIntyre, who by his silent voice and inaction on energy shows he supports Nancy’s position.
