I see doc. Now you're saying all the Republicans are actually against drilling. That's the logical takeaway from a handful of moderates teaming up with all the Democrats to block drilling. That handful of moderate Republicans are actually all the Republicans now. I understand.
It shouldn't occur to me that if they had another few conservative Republicans in place of the Democrats that it would have passed. No sir. What's supposed to occur to me is that about 15 or so Republicans blocked it all by themselves with no help from any Democrats, and further that those 15 or so Republicans morph into all the Republicans.
And the fact that all the Democrats voted against it, well heck it's like they didn't even vote against it at all! Kind of like how the Obama administration apparently has nothing to do really with blocking GOM drilling. Maybe I should even vote Democrat now if I want ANWR drilling!!
And if that isn't what I take away from that, I'm a racist.
Another exercise in docjoe logic.
If one or two Republicans had voted for Obamacare, you would at some point be explaining that "the Republicans" had actually passed it.
