Dennis Moore puts party first, country second

Unlike Sen. McCain, our own 3rd District congressman Dennis Moore chose to put his party first and his country second today when he signed on to Nancy Pelosi's energy plan, instead of a comprosmise plan backed by House Democrats and Republicans.

Dennis Moore will say that this plan "compromises" by allowing drilling and funding alternatives to oil, but the plan does:

  • DOES NOT permit drilling within 50 miles of the U.S. coast, although 90 percent of known oil reserves are in this area!

  • DOES NOT permit drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The area proposed for drilling occupies just 2,000 acres (0.01 percent) of the more than 20,000 million acres. And this area is desolate and inhabited by few lifeforms.

Dennis Moore has consistently opposed energy exploration and has always voted AGAINST drilling in ANWR in Alaska. The do-nothing congressman who few in congress have heard of does do a good job though of impeding economic progress and ensuring that gas prices remain high.

Had enough? Call Dennis Moore at (202) 225-2865 and tell him to put his country first and his party second.

10 years is enough. We need "more" out of Washington, and that requires that we vote "Moore" out of Washington. Vote Nick Jordan for congress on Nov. 4th. Visit or

Great blog Shawnee, and I don't know much about Dennis Moore.

But you really got the facts wrong on Dennis Moore. Just look at this:

Industry and their allies in government continue to misrepresent their plans for drilling the Arctic Refuge--and we should take a critical eye to such proposals.

Sorry, meant to say, you really got the facts wrong on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
