REAL REPUBLICANS FOR REAL CHANGE

Response to Speaker Pelosi’s call to divert oil from US reserves

July 9, 2008  
Our strategic oil reserves are maintained for use during an impending emergency. Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call to divert resources from those reserves shows that she lacks the vision to see beyond a knee-jerk, band-aid response to today’s high oil prices that will only weaken us in the event of a real emergency.    

 

And now Congressman Ron Klein, who campaigned on a slogan that he would “lead, not follow,” has once again followed Speaker Pelosi’s ridiculous plan and signed onto this pathetic display of ineptitude.  No wonder Congress’s approval rating is at 9%.     

 

Speaker Pelosi does seem to understand the basics of supply and demand. She fails to recognize however that because of the newly-expanding economies of China and India, this  increased demand is a long-term situation that requires a long-term solution. Our current situation is not a “shortfall.”    

 

America is richly blessed with a full spectrum of diverse energy resources and we must use them all.  If we do, we will not only lower our prices at the pump.  We will also be able, for the very first time, to develop an honest foreign policy that is not held hostage to our need for someone else’s oil.  

 

Leaders lead from the front. Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Klein are not leaders.  Leaders do not rely on such irrational and meaningless bullying as “Use it or Lose It.”  They find solutions that make us stronger, not weaker.    

 

It’s time for new leadership in Congress.
