I posted, "When the Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency, they didn't pass a law opening up drilling on ANWR. They just blamed the enviro whackos when it was totally on them, and people like you were dumb enough to buy it."
You posted, "It was fillibustered by the Senate Democrats psychotic docjoe. You're a moron posting from an insane asylum somewhere."
Well, the truth was even worse than I suspected. The reason ANWR was not drilled was totally on the Republicans. They had won the vote!! The moderate Republicans wimped out at the last minute, and they not the Dems were responsible for us not drilling in ANWR.
And just to put this in perspective, Rush Ilap, the precious GOM ban you are yammering on about at worst costs this country 200,000 barrels of oil per day. Estimates on ANWR is that between 1.5 and 1.9 mbpd could have been produced. Now that is one heckuva lot of oil, and it could have reduced the amount of oil the U.S. imports by 25%.
Drill, baby, drill... not!!
<I do tell the truth.> No, you don't. You have lied and blamed every problem including ANWR on the Dems. You lied about me when I posted the Republicans could have had drilling on ANWR.
<Of course all that episode proves is that there's virtually no difference between moderate Republicans and Democrats.>
That is progress. Just take away the word moderate from that sentence, and we'll finally agree on something.
