Pelosi firm: No vote on offshore drilling reported House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday ruled out a vote on new offshore oil drilling
A lot of Democrats see the need for drillig (which is why Pelosi will not let it come up for a vote). How about calling for a vote for a new Speaker of the House. If Republicans team up with reasonable Democrats, maybe they could select a new Democratic speaker.
even as Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said he might be open to a compromise that included it.

TheHill reported The White House has rejected calls from House Republicans that it convene a special session of Congress on energy, saying it wouldn’t make a difference. “We don't have plans to call Congress into session -- it won't make a difference if Democratic leaders are unwilling to bring up a bill for an up-down vote,” said White House spokesman Tony Fratto.
How about calling Congress back in session but shutting down the air conditioners until they cme up with a solution to this energy problem.

Do you think that congress could figure out this problem now? I highly doubt it. Oh by the way, those air conditioners should be yanked out of the walls. Do they have to be comfortable too? Just let them "sweat it out", like the rest of us....ANON
