So Nancy, How's That Energy Plan Going? What, Still Nothing But Roadblocks, Typical.

In May 2007, Nancy Pelosi announced amid great fanfare that the Democrats had made July 4, 2007 Energy Independence Day.  Castigating George Bush for his inaction on energy policy, Pelosi noted that gas prices had reached record levels and that the newly-enacted Democratic majority would take charge of energy policy to take back the leadership from “Big Oil”.  Pay close attention to the chart behind Pelosi at the beginning:

Their stated accomplishment was the ethanol debacle and the elimination of drilling tax credits.   Nothing that, in the real world, would help.

Since then gas has risen 60%.
