Nancy Pelosi is calling on President Bush to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to stabilize prices. She just doesn't get it. Is this her response to the American Solutions petition to drill here, drill now, and pay less?
Rather than retrieve resources from our own land, Nancy Pelosi wants to take our reserves, which are set aside for emergencies or disruptions in supply, to try to rig oil prices. This has been tried before and it didn't work. Even if it did work it would only bring relief for a brief period of time. This will do nothing to reduce our dependence on foreign sources of oil.
It is amazing how these so called representatives can be so wrong, so often and continue to get away with it. In the mean time Iran continues playing their dangerous games and we still aren't doing any more drilling, building any new refineries or nuclear plants.
