How Stupid?

How stupid do the Dems think we are? Yeah, rhetorical question there. Their fave line is 'but if we started drilling now, it would take ten years to get to the oil'. No kidding! And if we'd started drilling ten years ago, we'd have the oil now. By that argument, there's no point in building new roads to relieve traffic congestion. Heck, they won't be finished for five years, right?

It is scary how often I see lefties put that argument forth as the height of their intellectual prowess.

Gee, that means if we had started drilling Alaska when then the Clinton administration killed it, we would have that oil *right now*!

It also shows a complete and utter lack of a clue on how commodities markets work.
