I asked Republican congressional candidate Joe Visconti of West Hartford what he thought of U.S. Rep. John Larson's press release on oil drilling. Here's what Visconti sent back a few minutes ago:
I am on the run but just saw your email and Larson's press release. His quote of "For seven years he has allowed speculators to run rampant in the energy markets. It is time for that to end.” refering to the President is hysterical because if the President has done this than so has he and the Democrats who have controlled the House and Senate since 06. Larson continues to show up late with a note from Pelosi saying the dog ate my homework. Larson also says it will take ten years to get any oil from ANWAR, well John you have held office for 10 years now and just had a ten year celebration, just what were you celebrating, 10 years of Blocking Domestic Oil Exploration and Drilling?
Washington and Larson need to stop playing pin the tail on the donkey, take off the blindfolds and promote a comprehensive Energy plan which includes more Domestic Drilling NOW, more Clean and Safe Nuclear Planning NOW both of which will require vast amounts of private and public short and long term investment.
