Pelosi: "Drilling Is a Diversionary Tactic– It's a 'Decoy' " (Video)


To Speaker Pelosi- Drilling is a hoax. Drilling is a decoy.

Monica Showalter of Investor’s Business Daily says Pelosi is acting like “a troll at the bridge” for not allowing a vote on developing and drilling domestic reserves.

Rep, Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) called the current House under Speaker Pelosi, “Pelosi’s politiburo.”


On Sunday, Speaker Pelosi did herself no favors.
The elitist speaker of the worst Congress ever— told George Stephanopoulos that there will be no up or down vote under her watch on domestic oil development and drilling.
…She is out to save the planet, after all.

The Hill said that “Pelosi rips GOP’s energy tactic” but that’s not what happened. The elitist Speaker dodged George Stephanopoulos’s questions about drilling during her interview on ABC News on Sunday.

Amy Procter captured the outrageous video of the House Speaker who insists she knows what is best for Americans even if it means sucking up $5.00 gas prices for the next 20 years!
Speaker Pelosi is really unbelievable:

From the exchange on “This Week”:

SPEAKER PELOSI: This is a diversionary tactic from a failed energy policy…

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: But if you feel you have the better arguments why not give a straight up or down vote for drilling?

SPEAKER PELOSI: Because the misrepresentation is being made that this going to reduce the price at the pump. This is, again, a decoy, this is not a solution.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Well but if you’re right, why not let it be debated out and have the vote?

SPEAKER PELOSI: We have a debate very single day on this subject. What you saw in the Congress this week was the war dance of the handmaidens of the oil companies. That’s what you saw on the Republican side of the aisle.

Amy reminds us that these are the same politicians who ripped Iraq for taking a vacation without finalizing important legislation.

More… USA Today, via Instapundit, reported today that, “Americans by numbers approaching 2-1 would be more likely to support a candidate who backs expanded offshore drilling.”
