Once again, the GOP leadership sided with oil profiteers and used their power to help keep oil prices and profits high, while hurting the average American.
Then they have the balls to pull yesterday's stunt and blame the Democrats. What is wrong with these people? Why are some people so ill informed that they fall for such a stunt, even celebrate it? Are they too stupid to remember the Bush energy policies for the past 8 years that put us in this situation? Can't they remember the last Republican Congress - the 109th "Do Nothing" Congress that met less time in session, failed to pass budget resolutions and appropriations bills, provided no serious oversight of the disaster in Iraq, no major substantive policy achievements, and boasted 18 corrupt Republicans that were investigated/convicted or indicted (including 2 that went to the slammer: Ney and Cunningham)?
