Pelosi Needs a Backbone

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D.I.N.O.-Calif) is a tool.
Once again she caves and lets the GOP set the agenda.
In a recent interview with Larry King she stated that she has changed her position and "was open to a vote".
Previously she had rejected the push for offshore drilling as a hoax . But now she says "They have this thing that says drill offshore in the protected areas. We can do that. We can have a vote on that". WTF is "this thing"?
She comes off as a ditz sometimes. I get it she wants a legislative package that will bring down the price of oil immediately.
Offshore Drilling WILL NOT lower gas prices in the near future and IS NOT going to wean us off foreign oil nor make us more energy independent.
Face it drilling for oil is a dirty business. Drilling platforms release "produced formation water" and "drilling mud" both of which contaminate marine life and that is not even addressing the impact of a spill. More spills happen in transport than on the platform but they do happen.

Conservation should be at the top of everyone's list. We should be making every effort stop using fossil fuels and embrace alternative energy options that are renewable and sustainable.

Pelosi is not alone in land of flip floppers. Back in June both Obama and McCain did not support more offshore drilling but now they do. Business as usual politics and wishy washy candidates with no conviction. Go figure..

Bush and Company have been beating the drum to lift the ban on offshore drilling that his Daddy put in place. So if Bush is pushing to lift the ban then why don't all these pinheads get the point?
Bush and Cheney serve at the pleasure of Big Oil.
If George W. Bush's lips are moving then he is lying and you would have to be just plain stupid to get behind him again.
