Fault of Democrats

I saw a little on the news of the Democrats raking the oil companies over the coals for their profits. Our president went over to OPEC to beg them to pump more oil. OPEC said flatly they weren't going to.

We have enough oil on our shores, in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve and the Gulf of Mexico, to supply our needs for many, many years. One party and one party only is responsible for us begging OPEC to help us out. That is the Democratic Party.

The great Bill Clinton vetoed the bill to drill in ANWR 10 years ago. Had he passed it, we would have our own oil. So when those Democrats fill their cars up with $4 or $5 gas, they should be happy.
