The story in the OP, while old, confuses me. I thought we were told that the United States has so little oil and would manufacture so little oil even if we did ramp up drilling that it would not have a significant effect on the price of gasoline. And yet, even at our current levels, we were able to cause the price of oil to rise? Somehow that doesn't make sense
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
today: Heath Shuler floats gas tax holiday - Dan Berman - POLITICO.com
shuler is probably the current leader of the house bluedog remnant, if not arkansas' mike ross
shuler, tho only in his third term, is the one dem who stood up to his palsied speakeress in the depressing days after tsunami tuesday
he was defeated in his bid to replace her as party leader but i think he rose in the caucus as a result of his effort
shuler is the former quarterback of the washington redskins, a #1 draft choice who went absolutely bust (i saw him play in oakland, one of the worst qb performances i think i've ever witnessed in more than 40 years of attendance)
shuler, from NC11, is a very attractive man, a very good man, he ran in NC on values, he won his constituency over, he was on the list of folks like me heading into tsunami tuesday but we couldn't dislodge him, he beat us by 8 points
shuler is pro life, pro gun and anti illegal immigration
Just so every one knows, Cat used an article earlier put out there by "the center for public integrity" Great name I know....But further research into the funding of this site shows that it is far from on the up and up....
So that should be enough to take a skeptic eye at Cat's rhetoric.The Center has been criticized for accepting large funds from George Soros, a politically active billionaire and critic of the Bush administration. The Web site of one of Soros' organizations, the Open Society Institute, discloses four grants to the Center, all made before his entry into the 2004 presidential contest. They are:
A $72,400 one-year grant in 2000 supporting "an investigative journalism series on prosecutorial misconduct."
A $75,000 one-year grant in 2001 supporting "an examination of wrongful convictions resulting from prosecutorial misconduct."
A $100,000 one-year grant in 2002 "to investigate the political spending of the telecommunications industry on the federal, state and local levels."
A $1 million three-year grant in 2002 "to support the Global Access Project."

Just look at the facts: Who do the dems fight for and who do the republicans fight for? The answer, big corps just different brand-names of big crops
