Surrender Monkey NIMBY

As the Democrats bloviate on and on and on and on about gas prices (notice their massive escalation since the Democrats regained control of Congress?) yet offer no viable ideas, we learn about NIMBY

The United States should increase its domestic oil supply by opening up more drilling sites, several members of the Senate told Cybercast News Service Thursday, when surveyed on the issue at the U.S. Capitol. But some senators also said they are wary of allowing increased drilling in many locations – especially in their own states.

“There may be places that make sense, I am not saying, ‘Let’s not drill anywhere,’ ” Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in response to the question. “But do I want to drill off the California coast? No. Do I want to drill in the Arctic in endangered areas? No.”

Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.), strongly endorsed drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) — but not in his home state of Florida.

“I just don’t think we should do it in areas like the Florida Keys, which are environmentally very sensitive,” Martinez told Cybercast News Service.

So, drill away, as long as it is not in my back yard. Does anyone think that, if the oil companies moved to actually drill in other states, that Democrats wouldn’t work hard to block it?

Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), who joined Feinstein in limited support, echoed her exact words, saying, “We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”

On one hand, he is correct. We can’t, at least in the short term. We should have been working hard to open up our own wells starting the moment OPEC pulled their shenanigans in the 70’s, but, guess which side of the political aisle block it, and has been blocking it ever since, along with building new nuclear reactors and new refineries? But, if Senator Levin has a better idea, let’s hear it. What does he suggest? More of the “we need to invest in alternative energy,” with no specifics? I personally would love to have other alternatives. What are they? Bio fuels is a disaster, windfarms only work in certain areas, and solar is not ready for prime time. What else is there, Carl?

Interesting how liberal/Democrat policies have led to us being beholden to terrorist and terrorist supporting countries, eh? And these are the same types of policies we would get from an Obama presidency. After he talks one on one with folks like Ahmadenijad, of course.

    Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions said this deal on C-Span last Wednesday! He said that Florida wanted Bama to pipe natural gas to the Sunshine State so they could keep cool in their AC while sipping mint julips, while opposing drilling 200 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico! Love this Jeff Sessions patriot and his state of diXie.
