Guerilla Congress convenes

No - I didn't give them the name...

House Republicans are back on the floor, despite the House being adjourned for their summer vacation. They are speaking and discussing drilling and an 'all of the above' option when it comes to energy sources.

The Dems, fearful of a vote total that would be in favor of drilling, refused to allow any vote on the issue.

You can read regular updates on what's going on in the House at Twitter. But interestingly, none of the main stream media (CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC) have even mentioned this in their 'top' news stories, despite headlines on everything from 'Clinton says he's not racist' to 'new breed of dolphins.'

I wonder why, especially when you consider that an overwhelming majority of Americans are in favor of drilling and even a majority of Ohioan (according to Rasmussen) say that drilling is more important than the environment.

It's a lot of fun to be in the minority again! You can actually stand on your principles and get something done instead of compromising to get something done!
