Latta says Kaptur signed energy bill is sham

WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following
statement regarding H.R. 6899, a bill produced by the House Democrat
leadership attempting to address the current energy crisis our country
is facing.

"Speaker Pelosi and the House Democrat leadership produced a sham of an
energy bill and tried to pull the wool over the eyes of the American
public who have called for comprehensive energy reform legislation.
This bill was produced with no bi-partisan input, committee hearings, or
the opportunity for amendments, casting further controversy over the
contents of this legislation.

This bill further restricts the responsible recovery of our natural
resources both in the outer continental shelf and in ANWR. Furthermore,
this bill does not include any provisions for nuclear energy,
coal-to-liquid technology, or increased refinement capabilities, all of
which would have an immediate effect on lowering energy prices. This
bill even goes so far as to raise the cost of electricity through a
series of government mandated requirements that power companies would be
required to follow.

My constituents and the American public deserve an 'all of the above'
energy policy which the House Republicans have laid out in H.R. 6566.
House Republicans will continue to fight for comprehensive energy reform
legislation that our country desperately needs."

Late Wednesday night, news made its way from the other side of the Atlantic that John McCain, in an interview with a Spanish outlet, had made a series of bizarre responses to a question regarding that country's prime minister.

"Would you be willing to meet with the head of our government, Mr. Zapatero?" the questioner asked, in an exchange now being reported by several Spanish outlets.

McCain proceeded to launch into what appeared to be a boilerplate declaration about Mexico and Latin America -- but not Spain -- pressing the need to stand up to world leaders who want to harm America. (cont.)

your fairness, Pink.

I should have included Kaptur's name here:

"How many 'balanced' posts have we had one here about Carty Finkbeiner? Stainbrook? John Block and The Blade? Toledo Public Schools? The smoking ban? "

So foul and fair a blog post I have not seen.
