No Time to Dither

By Hugh Hewitt

The Pelosi-Reid Democrats who control Congress dithered on Monday--and the markets fell and oil skyrocketed. As a result, nervous investors saw a replay of much of what has distinguished Washington, D.C. during the 110th Congress.

The economy and the people who work in it are deeply troubled by continued political posturing, whether on the real estate crisis or the refusal to authorize real exploration offshore on the outer continental shelf. Democrats are counting on fear and confusion to cloud voters minds, but they seem to underestimate the anger that is growing in the heartland at their indifference to real solutions to real problems.

Even if the Democrats wake up to the peril in the markets, it seems that the radical environmentalist special interests will keep them from doing anything to add to the domestic supply of oil.

Voters should remember in November the Democratic indifference to their issues in September.
