Finally, the Republican Party is getting up the nerve to confront the Dems on their historic obstructionism on a national energy policy.
Democrats have blocked the development of new sources of petroleum.
Democrats have blocked drilling in ANWR.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the coast of Florida.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the east coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the west coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast.
Democrats have blocked building oil refineries.
Democrats have blocked clean nuclear energy production.
Democrats have blocked clean coal production.
And, what is the democratic solution to the current energy crisis?
–Democrats want to tax oil companies and sue OPEC!

But there’s hope that the American people may finally be catching on to the root problem.
Recent polling data from Gallup show the percentage of voters blaming oil companies for skyrocketing gasoline prices has dropped from 34 percent to 20 percent over the past year. At the same time, support for more drilling in U.S. coastal and wilderness areas has increased to 57 percent from 41 percent.
Even the editorial board at USA Today gets it.
