Bush begs the saudi prince to release more oil supply, Congress drags the executives in front of them for a dog and pony show.
Not one of these idiots does the obvious, drill for oil
According to wikipedia,
Energy Bill authorized drilling in ANWR, but a filibuster by Senate Democrats kept the measure from coming to a vote. In 1995, Republicans prepared to take up the battle again and included a provision for ANWR in the federal budget. President Bill Clinton vetoed the entire budget and expressed his intention to veto any other bill that would open ANWR to drilling.
We have plenty of other sources of oil. Had Clinton not vetoed the bill, we would have already have ramped up the drilling in ANWR, and we would have set the stage for drilling in other areas.
