ICYMI, here is President Obama at the University of Miami talking energy, and about how the GOP is salivating over high gas prices and more drilling.

"That's a bumper sticker, that's not a strategy to solve our energy problem. That's a strategy to get politicians through an election."

But if "drilling won't get us out of this problem," why are we starting to drill again, especially in a place that is so risky?

At least he pushes for renewables, a huge plus.

President Obama has taken steps to make us energy independent and create an economy that's built to last. He's been a strong supporter of domestic energy production, has made historic investments in clean energy technology, and has nearly doubled fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. Because of the progress we've made, our dependence on foreign oil is the lowest it's been in 16 years. Yet, conservative groups funded by big oil are spending millions trying to distort the President's record.

Why the Hell isn't Congress Ripping into the Bush/Cheney Secret Energy Policies?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Your Daily Dose of BuzzFlash, but this time it comes via Stephen Pizzo. He starts with one of my pettest of peeves:

Republicans don’t want to look back because, "back there" is all the stuff that got their party run out of power. And Democrats don’t want to look back because they fear it would only make already unpleasant Republicans angry, and making Republicans angry is apparently something Democrats fear more than anything else. [...]

[W]hy the hell isn't Congress ripping into the Bush/Cheney secret energy policies, even though the Gulf of Mexico and the citizens whose lives and livelihoods  are being destroyed before their eyes? If not now, when?

A sane person would assume that, with such an enormous disaster on the news every night, those in charge would be interested in finding out precisely what it was that Dick Cheney and the head of BP decided during their secret 2001 meetings

Please read the whole thing here.

If the obstacle for Dems is their concern over Republican anger, it's a little late.  What do they think they've been subjected to at town hall meetings and Tea Bagger rallies? What do they think they've experienced on the Senate and House floors? What about in elevators and cloak rooms? Or from the punditiots on the Tee Vee machine?

There is simply no excuse for ignoring crime. That BushCo has skated for this long is inexcusable. They've killed thousands of Americans (and Not Americans) with their fraudulent war, horrific torture policies, and lack of environmental and financial oversight (yes, a bad economy can kill).

If it takes a Big Oil Katrina to finally investigate these thugs, then do it, or voters will start "looking back" at Congressional inaction.... which in and of itself is a crime.
