    Exactly what bill did they block? Bush was against offshore drilling in Florida before he supported it. The GOP governor blocked offshore oil drilling in California.

    By the way I am for drilling ANWR and Bakken, but that will not solve anything like the republicans claim. It's just too bad Carters energy policy was scrapped by Reagan. We could be driving cars that get 70 miles to the gallon by now and not importing a drop of oil.
    Ahhh, so you prefer to prolong the oil shortage and human suffering by creating a shortage now and for the next hundred years, rather than use what we have now and plan on finding alternatives within the next hundred years ???

    Not drilling doesn't do anything to help, either.

    On May 18, 2006, Dems blocked a bill to allow offshore drilling off the continental U.S.

    On December 21, 2005, Dems blocked a bill to allow drilling in ANWR.

    Do I need to go on ??

    No I want to start developing alternatives now and create an energy policy of conservation and using our resources more efficiently. We have to stop being the country of waste. I just get tired of republicans claiming we can save ourselves and eliminate imports by more drilling. That is just too shortsighted and not even possible.

And we don't have the infrastructure to use natural gas for cars.
    This last cold snap, so many people with natural gas heating used so much of it, that the line pressure dropped below what is required by Combined Cycle Natural Gas Turbine power plants, and they had to shut down. It was so cold in Texas that even coal plants were shutting down. When it comes to electric power, only nuclear operates well in extreme cold situations.
    Neither electric cars or natural gas powered cars are the answer for the forseeable future.
    Jimmy Carter was the only president with an engineering degree and thus able to better understand the complexities of our energy needs, and Reagan put a stop to most of the programs that Carter started.
    Regarding Jimmy Carter, most people agree he is a moron who got elected becuase no one knew him. Not sure what your complaint is about nuclear other than it isn't used in transportation. If you want to do what Obama is asking you need electric power for all those electric cars. Natural gas is already used in some trucking. It would be somewhat costly to convert diesel trucks to nat gas but we Obama is looking for areas to invest. If there are other alternatives that work we should be in favor of all of the above.

    ?
    Repealing the same ban that Bush supported a couple years before? The same ban his brother Jeb supported? The same ban the California GOP governor supported? They all supported the ban before they flip flopped.

    In 89 a drilling bill for ANWR was about to be overwhelmingly passed right up until the Exxon Valdez spill.

    Most people think Reagan was a moron too. So what's your point?

    No one believes we can drill enough oil to halt foriegn imports. That's just a left wing talking point. There's no reason we can't drill all we can WHILE developing alternatives.
