McQ over at Q&O suggests:

Investor’s Business Daily brings us the latest from probably the worst Majority Leader the Senate has seen in a very long time:

The Dr. No of the drill-nothing Congress tried to deflect the issue of rising gas prices Monday by telling Fox Business News that there are costs we should worry about besides those stemming from Democratic inaction. Our guilt is supposed to replace our anger. “Coal makes us sick,” Reid said, “oil makes us sick, it’s global warming, it’s ruining our country, it’s ruining our world, we’ve got to stop using fossil fuel . . . .”

In this case, he’s partially right – we all know that in a perfect world, we’d be using something else – an alternative. But this isn’t a perfect world and our energy needs aren’t going to stand still as we try to develop alternatives. So we have to deal with and use what is available now and exploit it.

The problem is, “Dr. No” isn’t just against petroleum and coal, but he’s also against the use of very clean nuclear energy.

Not only have nuclear power plants, drilling and petroleum refineries been stopped by the environmental movement, so-called clean energy projects have been stopped in their tracks as well – aided and abetted by the likes off Harry Reid. He has no solutions, only road-blocks. And the candidate he supports is no better…

Which is EXACTLY why I’ve said repeatedly, ad nauseum, that the worst thing you can give a Democrat is what they ask for. An actual solution to a problem removes the wedge that keeps them proped in their position of governmental power… else the solution they demand makes the situation that much worse. Either way…


And in the case of energy, these problems are ones caused by such as Reid in the first place, as I said yesterday…

Consider; what is the reaction to high prices? A push on the part of consumers for increased oil and gas drilling by removing the ‘green’ restrictions. A push for more nuclear power generation. A push for increased use of coal.  All of which runs in the face of the greenies that have so dominated our energy policy since the middle 70’s, and have driven us into the ground economically. And guess which side of that fence Obama is on?
