If you haven't seen this yet....

Well, here ya go:

Congressman Roy Blunt put together these data to highlight the differences between House Republicans and House Democrats on energy policy:

ANWR Exploration:
House Republicans: 91% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Coal-to-Liquid:
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 78% Opposed

Oil Shale Exploration:
House Republicans: 90% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration:
House Republicans: 81% Supported
House Democrats: 83% Opposed

Refinery Increased Capacity:
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 96% Opposed

SUMMARY:
91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the production of American-made oil and gas.
86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.

Here's my take on all of this: Yes, it's all well and good to point out how obstructionist the Democrat American Communist Party is, but where the hell were the Republicans when they were in the majority? When they controlled the House, the Senate, and the White House? Why the hell couldn't they have passed all of these bills then?

*crickets*

Yeah. That's why they're the Stupid Party. Or perhaps the Spineless Party. Or both. Found at RNS.
