Harry Reid’s Case of Selective Hearing

Democrat Heaps Praise on Pickens Despite Pro-Drilling Remarks

Listening to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid talk about T. Boone Pickens, you’d think the two were in perfect harmony with a solution to America’s energy problem. There’s just one problem: Reid is listening to only what he wants to hear from the legendary Texas oilman.

While there’s no question Pickens is talking about wind, solar and biofuels, he’s also made quite clear that he favors expanded offshore drilling and exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. “I’m for everything but foreign oil,” Pickens says.

We hear you, Boone, but your pal Harry must be suffering from a case of selective hearing.
