I don't dislike Hamilton for flip flopping or compromising that's what politicians should do.
She voted without even reading what she was voting for. This is a reprehensible act of stupidity on any politicians part IMHO.
I am all for energy independence but I'm not convinced that fracking is the answer as of yet. I would prefer they do the standard oil drilling off the coast to look for more oil. Heck they should erect wind farms off the coast as well.
In this case we're looking at 5 years worth(?) of gas. I wonder if that is worth the environmental risk. This is different then the situation in North Dakota where the known oil shale deposits contain millions of barrels of frackable oil and gas.
Our level of importing oil has fallen over the last couple of years due in part to increases in domestic production - most of which is from fracking.
Anyway, Hamilton is an idiot - not for voting FOR fracking but for not reading what she was voting for.
