The two biggest proponents of off shore drilling have yet to say anything about the oil leak wreaking unbelievable havoc in the Gulf. SARAH PALIN AND MICHALE STEEL what do you have to say now? Come on, where is the chant you spearheaded during the election?
From Huffington Post:
"Drill, baby, drill! And drill now!" Steele memorably chanted at the Republican National Convention in 2008. "Do you want to put your country first? Then let's make decisions about our security based on what keeps us safe and not on what's politically correct," he told the crowd.
And during that year's vice presidential debate, Palin told Joe Biden, "You even called drilling -- safe, environmentally-friendly drilling offshore -- as raping the outer continental shelf. There -- with new technology, with tiny footprints even on land, it is safe to drill and we need to do more of that."
