Why is President Bush blaming the current Democratic-majority Congress for the non-starter status of the initiative for off-shore drilling for oil?
The Democrats weren't the majority up until 2007. Why wasn't he pushing for off-shore drilling then ....?
Now that the clock is ticking until his Presidency ends, has he suddenly woken up and decided to get something positive done for the country? He's sweating like crazy to promote some sort of legacy.
Bush could have taken a bolder step by overturning a 10-year-old executive order that bans drilling off most U.S. shores. But he said he wouldn't do that because he wanted Congress to act first.
Since when does Bush respect Congress to that extent? This is a an absolute contradiction in terms!
