No Drilling In ANWR

Well the Senate has killed drilling in the very section of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that was set aside for drilling. That's right, this is the land that was set aside years ago for the purpose of drilling for oil...and now we can't drill there.

So why did the ANWR drilling provision get killed? Because the propaganda from the left and the media portrayed the section of ANWR where the drilling would take place as some sort of luscious, green field with moose grazing. When in reality, the area planned for oil this very moment...looks like an iced-over Wal-Mart parking lot on Christmas Day. (Wal-Mart is closed on Christmas Day)

There's simply nothing there.

Right now we rely on foreign sources of oil for much of our energy. Many of those countries are Islamic dictatorships or are run by shady characters like Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Yet if we want to drive our cars and heat our homes, we have to bow down and...Practically beg them like a crack addict begs his dealer not to cut off our supply.

And who do we have to thank for this? Liberal "Republicans" like Lincoln Chafee and Mike DeWine. They went against their party to vote against the drilling. So the next time you’re at the pump and at the mercy of OPEC make sure to thank these guys.
