On the the House Republican political grandstanding Revolt, Where have the Republicans been for the past 7 and a half years?
From Reason’s Hit and Run Blog…
My reaction to that is the same as my reaction to President Bush’s repeal of the 1991 executive order that his father signed, that made it even more difficult than pre-existing legislation to engage in offshore drilling. I commend the president. Where has he been for seven and a half years? I commend the House Republicans for finally standing up and doing something, but where have they been for the last seven and a half years? Are they serious about this or has this been an action taken to gain some headlines in advance of the Democratic and Republican conventions. The timing is, to be honest, a little suspect. But all of that being said, it’s good that they’re finally doing something. But to do something that will improve their standing in the polls before the election, I expect that will take more than standing on the House floor making speeches with the power turned off. It would take a lot more than that to create an agenda that will win them votes.
Amen Mr. Barr, and why, once again, You have my Vote!! This is another stunt to attract voters. Are they serious about “Drill Hear, Drill Now”? I don’t find them to be. As much as I love seeing the Republicans kind of acting like they have a back-bone, it’s all just a political stunt, to show “we care, about the American People”.
I call bull shit.
