My congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) was part of this morning's "Abandoned Democratic Press Conference on Energy - 2008" at which the leaders of the "Wrong Direction Party" were to outline their "Excuses For Not Doing Anything Useful About Energy Since 1972", which I guess is why they threw the press conference under the bus. The announcement for the then soon to be abandoned press conference described the 110th Congress as the "New Direction Congress", well considering that the majority Democratic Party has deemed that "Thou Shalt Not Drive - Unless Your Car Is A Prius or You Are Rich" it would seem like a new direction. This lack of meaningful policy is not a "New Direction" for the Democratic Party, rather it is "The Same Old Thing".
What they were prepared to tell the nation concerning their obstructionist policies that have exasperated the recent rise in gasoline prices is anybody's guess, however my instincts tell me that the EPA may have had a hand in the cancellation, the Capital simply is not prepared for that much manure.
