Boehner on the White House’s new offshore drilling policy:
The Obama Administration continues to defy the will of the American people who-
Aaargh stop it stop it stop it.
Anyway, here’s the full sentence:
The Obama Administration continues to defy the will of the American people who strongly supported the bipartisan decision of Congress in 2008 to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling not just off the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico, but off the Pacific Coast and Alaskan shores as well.
Does Boehner seriously think there’s anyone up in arms that Obama only lifted the moratorium in the east? Not even the Tea Partiers have enough rage on their hands to dump it into this. For all this talk about the “will of the American people,” my guess is that there’s not much will to spread around one way or the other.
Not that this is going to stop the GOP from abusing that already-exhausted rhetorical trope at every available opportunity.
