Hammered in recent weeks by Democrats for putting their focus more on social issues than living up to campaign promises of job creation, Senate Republicans sent out an e-mail invite to a media conference for Wednesday "about an announcement concerning jobs and offshore energy."
Republican Sens. Bob Rucho, Harry Brown and Tommy Tucker are expected to announce the introduction of a bill to study offshore drilling for natural gas, along with other energy generation options.
The timing of their announcement, from a PR perspective, is either brave or somewhat foolhardy.
Does anyone over at the GOP caucus remember that April 20th is the one-year anniversary of a particularly tragic and costly offshore drilling mishap?
