Some of the dems seem to want oil from chavez and Iran rather from our oil sands. Fortunately the situation in congress will soon change.
Peter Foster: The oil sands and the Democrats’ death march

Radical environmentalism is an attractive indulgence when economies are booming, but doesn’t look so hot during an extended downturn
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came to Canada this week for a meeting of G8 speakers and to chat with those who would alternately promote, or kill, the Alberta oilsands. She has always been firmly in the killer camp, but her main concern right now is the death march of her own Democratic Party towards the November Congressional elections.
Obamacare is toxic. U.S. financial reform is incomprehensible and likely to be counterproductive. Vast Keynesian stimuli have gone down the drain to such an extent that the White House doesn’t even use that “s” word any more, referring to this week’s announcement of another $50 billion of unfunded spending as a “spur.”
Many Democrats are attempting to save their skin by distancing themselves from Mr. Obama, who compounded the inheritance of an economic crisis by pursuing a divisive — and expensive — social agenda. Ms. Pelosi has been behind him all the way.
