The GOP can strike black gold here if they act boldly for once

They need to at least allow the current ban to expire in October, and refuse to let a new one pass.  John Hawkins has been sending around this post and urging conservatives to write about the oil issue and the need for the GOP to finally take a strong stand on something. 

I was a little disheartened by this report earlier in the day, where a squishy compromise looked like it was being hammered out.  I thought, great, here we go again.  I almost bailed on writing about the oil issue, because I figured the GOP would continue to be their lazy selves and do the minimum. 

Then I saw this, Nancy Pelosi decided to shut down the lights and cameras in the House while the GOP was discussing and debating energy policy and oil policy.  It's turning into a circus, and I'm hoping this stunt by Pelosi finally lights a fire under their asses and they start acting bold.  Since they shut the chamber cameras down, they have Rep. John Culberson outside of the chamber with a handicam reporting and Twittering.

From Pete Hoekstra's Twitter account,

Shame! Shame! Capital Hill police working under strict orders to shut Capital down at 430 pm today. Speaker Pelosi wants this shut down now

Some of the GOP Congressmen are calling on people to call their Representatives, and to call the House leadership to demand a vote!  This is how you do it, GOP!  More of this, please!
