McCain forgets drill, baby, drill

Senator John McCain, R-McCain -- has he lived in Arizona in the last 30 years? -- his sidekick Lindsey Graham, and Susan Collins, joined the Marxists in the Democratic Party to make it harder to drill for oil and natural gas in America.

Perhaps their friends the Saudis fear losing business.

So much for McCain's call to "drill, baby, drill" in his 2008 presidential campaign.

Oh wait, that was his running mate, Sarah Palin. But no, he said it too -- in 2010.

Now McCain is hugging trees and blasting methane emissions. Oddly enough, Saudis flare off their methane emissions.

From The Hill:
Three Republicans joined Senate Democrats on Wednesday to reject an effort to overturn an Obama administration rule limiting methane emissions from oil and natural gas drilling.
Only 49 senators voted to move forward with debate on legislation to undo the Bureau of Land Management rule, short of the 51 votes needed.
Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) joined all 48 members of the Democratic caucus in rejecting the resolution under the Congressional Review Act.
Graham and Collins had previously publicized their plans to vote against the legislation. But McCain’s vote came as a surprise.
McCain said that he voted against the resolution because he fears that it would have prevented the BLM from writing an improved regulation in the future.
“While I am concerned that the BLM rule may be onerous, passage of the resolution would have prevented the federal government, under any administration, from issuing a rule that is ‘similar,’ according to the plain reading of the Congressional Review Act,” he said in a statement.
Power to the bureaucracy!

Oh well, he voted for other repeals this year.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

  1. Flaring off methane is better than letting it go into the atmosphere, but you do not want to have an open flame around Mac Daddy McCain after he has had a plate of Arroz con Frijoles! Talk about methane!

  4. So Maine and South Carolina and Arizona are not big shale states. Nothing to gain from voting for cheap energy, I guess.

  6. There have been numerous indications that Senator McCain's mental faculties are dulling with age. This is just one more. - Elric

  8. Like most of his fellow congressreptiles, McCain does not live in the state he represents. McCain lives in Washington DC, as do all of them. They go back home to make it look good and to pretend that they actually care about their constituents. I'll bet they have some good stores in DC about how they snow the hicks and rubes back home! This has all gotten waaaaay away from the original program, which kept Congress down on the farm where they belong, and only had them in Washington part of the year. Now they are 100% DC working between the Capitol Hill Hog Trough and lobbyists and their campaign money bundlers. They should be in DC less and in recess more, and we also need term limits to limit the time they can have their nose buried in the hog trough.
