(USA Today) - Nancy Pelosi says to "just say NO" to drilling. Former President Bill Clinton replied "maybe a good drilling will make her a little less tense".
Nancy Pelosi stands by her stance to not hold a vote on offshore drilling stating "this is a Democracy and I have the right to suppress any vote that may conclude with a different outcome than the one I want". She added "it's my party and I'll oppress it if I want to".
Conservative Republicans feel offshore drilling is necessary to not only stabilize our economy but a necessary first step towards independence from foreign oil. "First, we step away from foreign oil" explained Congressman B.P. Valero "then with oil prices dropping and our economy growing we can afford to focus on future technologies to break our oil addiction forever".
Nancy Pelosi responded by claiming "the Republicans are just fact-slinging truth-mongers spewing out simple common sense solutions to complex problems". To that Congressman B.P. Valero replied "uh, yes".
