House Republicans Refuse to Adjourn

By on 8.1.08 | 3:23PM

Great embarrassment to Nancy Pelosi & Co:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats adjourned the House and turned off the lights and killed the microphones, but Republicans are still on the floor talking gas prices. Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders opposed the motion to adjourn the House, arguing that Pelosi's refusal to schedule a vote allowing offshore drilling is hurting the American economy. They have refused to leave the floor after the adjournment motion passed at 11:23 a.m. and are busy bashing Pelosi and her fellow Democrats for leaving town for the August recess. . . . Democratic aides were furious at the GOP stunt, and reporters were kicked out of the Speaker's Lobby, the space next to the House floor where they normally interview lawmakers.

House Minority Leader John Boehner spoke to a group of journalists about energy, the state of the Republican Party, and the 2008 elections earlier this afternoon, as part of The American Spectator's Newsmaker series.

Boehner's talk comes after he went on what was billed as an "energy tour" of the United States/>/> in a bid to boost American-made energy production. The tour brought him to Alaska/>/>, where he learned that energy production could proceed in an environmentally safe manner. But although there is a majority in Congress who would support more domestic production, the Democratic leadership is blocking a vote to avoid putting their members in a tough spot.

Harry Reid, John Boehner, and now Nancy Pelosi speaking before Obama and Clinton. Pelosi was introduced with a video from her trip to Israel, but shockingly the video left out any coverage of this.
