You know I wish you would celebrate the cause of Republicans every once in a while like how the Congressional Republicans (94-06) have been wanting to open up ANWR since 2001? That we would not be in this crisis if we would have passed Bush's Energy Bill back in 01 before 9/11. What about how the Congressional GOP (94-06) have been wanting to open up the OffShore Drilling back in 05 when gas was a buck and change? How about talking about how our boys have been sponsored over 100 pieces of legislation to open up drilling and innovate our infrastructure? How about talking more about Representative Roy Blount (R-MO) and how our GOP minority is trying to get drill here and drill now and campaign on that as a winning issue in November?
Why is it that it is easier to criticize than it is to build up? Come on, you were in the service. You know better.

Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2008, 8:51 AMJust though this would make one think.For years the congress was controlled by Republicans, and what did they do about any of this? Actually, the ban on off shore drilling was signed by G.H.W. Bush. Liberals and environmentalist who are not members of congress cannot be blamed for anything other than lobbying. They don't make laws. And, while all this was going on, where was the party except out trying to elect more Republicans whether or not they believed in the Republican principles.Jim----- Original Message -----From: "Johnny Minton" <firstname.lastname@example.org>To: "Johnny Minton" <email@example.com>Sent: Wednesday, June 25, 2008 12:31 AMSubject: Radical Treason of Dims>
