Top political links of the day

Here's a couple of quick links to some stories that might be interesting to more politically-minded readers out there:

Hugh Hewitt writes about the need to drill domestically for oil and what the Democrats are doing to prevent it:

"The Big Three Democrats are thus all agreed that their party has given up on bringing down the cost of oil and thus the cost of gas at the pump.

Because demand for oil isn't going to drop due to growth around the globe, the only way to bring the cost of a gallon of gas at the pump down is to increase the supply of oil. The only way to increase the supply of oil for the present is to explore for more oil and then bring it to market. that means drilling."


In related news, at least one Democrat wants to nationalize part of the oil industry: “Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) said, ‘We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market’.”

Hinchey is actually the second Democrat to threaten nationalization; you might remember that Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, that will help. It worked so well in Venezuela, Russia, Mexico...


Karl at Protein Wisdom has a great post summarizing Barack Obama's rather thin resume. Have you wondered what exactly a "community organizer" is? Karl has some information. Not all that impressive in my opinion.


Carol Platt Liebau at Townhall links to this gem: A key foreign policy adviser told a British audience that “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.” Winnie the Pooh????
