UPDATE: Rush Limbaugh gets Gang of Ten Republican to call.

Rush has more on Gang of Ten

Senator Chambliss (R-Ga) calls the Rush Limbaugh show to plead his case.

Rush’s Response to Senator Chambliss’s call.

Highlighting the main reason Republicans will be losing the election again this year, allowing a Democrat majority in the Senate and House and White House, Rebecca Strassel, of the Wall Street Journal talks about the Gang of Ten’s Democrat Oil Drilling solution.

Still, it was probably too much to assume every Republican would work out that their side was winning this issue. And so, last Friday, in stumbled Sens. Lindsey Graham, John Thune, Saxby Chambliss, Bob Corker and Johnny Isakson — alongside five Senate Democrats. This “Gang of 10” announced a “sweeping” and “bipartisan” energy plan to break Washington’s energy “stalemate.” What they did was throw every vulnerable Democrat, and Mr. Obama, a life preserver.

That’s because the plan is a Democratic giveaway. New production on offshore federal lands is left to state legislatures, and then in only four coastal states. The regulatory hurdles are huge. And the bill bars drilling within 50 miles of the coast — putting off limits some of the most productive areas. Alaska’s oil-rich Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is still a no-go.

The highlight is instead $84 billion in tax credits, subsidies and federal handouts for alternative fuels and renewables. The Gang of 10 intends to pay for all this in part by raising taxes on . . . oil companies! The Sierra Club couldn’t have penned it better. And so the Republican Five has potentially given antidrilling Democrats the political cover they need to neutralize energy through November.

The five Republican Senators siding with Democrats are all cronies of John McCain.

They deserve to be voted out of office.
