Blame a Republican

In 15 years when gas prices are $20/gallon we can blame Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi that "stick to their guns" about offshore drilling, more refineries and drilling in ANWR as the gas prices hover around $4 a gallon...but right now we need to blame the Republicans.

From 2000-2006 we had a Republican President --and "oil man" no less. Republicans were in charge of the Senate AND the House. So what happened? Why didn't they do all the things THEN that they're proposing now that they're the minority?! Why didn't they open up ANWR then? Why didn't they approve offshore drilling and opening more refineries then? If these steps were taken years ago there would be relief in sight now...

So yes, in the next ten years we can blame Barack for "solving the energy crisis" with gems like "Fill your tires with air", but for now I think we need to be fair and blame the GOP for their inaction.
