"Demagoguery and demonization will not reduce energy prices or solve supply problems in the long run," he (Engler) said. "Our energy supply and infrastructure have suffered from 25 years of increasingly restrictive government policies that have made it almost impossible to access and refine the resources we have. The Senate should dispense with the theatrics and get serious about America's energy supply."You have GOT to be KIDDING ME!!
The energy crooks have had the easiest time of their lives for the last 25 years under Reagan, Poppy, Clinton, and Dubya. And now Engler is actually going to cry “poor mouth” even though these clowns have been too busy gouging us to get serious about supporting development of alternative energy sources?
Fortunately, Jim Hightower provides a dose of reality from this link (under “Conservative Hypocrisy,” a redundancy if one ever existed). Also, this link provides some additional background as well as a link to a related Smirking Chimp article.
