I’ll say this much for the Obama Administration: They’re consistent. From the get go they’ve made it clear that longstanding American allies can expected to be taken for granted, insulted and, if convenient, dumped in favor of appeasement. Consequently this administrations decision to not support Britain, our closest ally, in its latest dispute with Argentina […]
Sierra Hotel! The Gang of 20 Folds!
The Hill is reporting that Lindsey Graham and his gang of wimps have folded… For now anyway. A bipartisan group of senators who sought a compromise in the rancorous energy debate won’t introduce their bill before lawmakers adjourn for the elections, several Senate aides said Thursday.

Back to the 70’s
Everything old is new again or here we go again… Back to the 70’s. Every time I listen to democrats in talk about energy policy I feel I’ve been transported back to the 1970’s.

Gas Prices and Politics
The only thing worse than a trip to the gas pump these days is listening to John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama talk about energy policy. John McCain and Hillary Clinton both say they’ll bring us relief at the pump with a temporary moratorium on the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gas tax. To […]
