We Will Bury Ourselves

Daniel Henninger in the Wall Street Journal comments on the breathtaking stupidity of America’s unwillingness to drill our own oil during a time of global energy shortages.

While other nations use their oil reserves to attain world status, we give ours up. Why shouldn’t they conclude that, long term, these people can be taken? Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will bury you.” Forget that. We’ll do it ourselves.

Instead, our politicians shove each other to be the first to whack the very ones who could get us out of this jam — the oil companies — if we would let them.

Surely, the American public will someday wake up and realize what our political class is doing to our nation’s future, and throw the scoundrels out.
