Hoax (noun) Definition: an act intended to trick people into believing something is real when it is not.
She apparently believes the offshore oil rig in the picture is not real. This woman is actually in charge of something fairly important.
From Michelle Malkin.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday shut the door on expanding oil and gas drilling beyond areas that have already been approved for energy exploration, drawing a clear distinction from her counterparts in charge of the Senate.
“This call for drilling in areas that are protected is a hoax, it’s an absolute hoax on the part of the Republicans and this administration” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference. “It’s a decoy to punt your attention away from the fact that their policies have produced $4-a-gallon gasoline.”
Pelosi’s stand may put her at odds with a growing number of members of the Democratic Caucus who have
been moving toward possible compromises with Republicans on ways to expand domestic energy productionactually seen an offshore oil rig and believe them to be real.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday told reporters that expanded offshore drilling is not off the table, and that Democrats will take a look at whether states should be able to choose to drill off their coasts. “I’m not knee-jerk-opposed to anything,” Reid said.
Love that part about “[Republican] policies have produced $4-a-gallon gasoline.” Seems that the numbers are actually pretty simple on this; simple on the order of 2+2=4.
Maybe McCain can call ol’ Ross Perot and get one of those foam boards with the gas price chart on it and hit the Dems over the head with it.
