    You're right that there is a difference, But it doesn't take away the fact that they still lean towards the right.

    A conservative favors traditional views and values and tends to oppose change.
    A republican favors traditional views and values and supports change as long it benefits his base.

    It all depends. I know a lot of people who call themselves "Conservatives" who are anything but.

    Looking at your link, it is amazing that Landrieu and a few other democrat senators are trying to convince their leadership to table cap and trade. Why don't they do the right thing and just vote with the republicans against it if Reid is dumb enough to try it. But no, they must grovel and lick the feet of Reid and Obama, rather than standing up for what their electorate wants.
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Here's what you need to know that many people don't: we simply don't have enough oil to make a difference.

    We have lots of natural gas and coal, but very little oil. The U.S. has only 3% of the world's oil. We consume 26%. Our 3% can never change prices more than a few cents a gallon, let alone ever hope to replace foreign oil.

    The only way to decrease dependence on foreign oil is to decrease dependence on all oil.

    He never said he would not allow offshore drilling in certain cases. Looks like you are the biased mindless lemming that gets all his info from Glenn Beck..
