“Madame Speaker, Where art thou?’’ Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, shouted from the well of the House. “This room is vacant of most members of Congress. Where, oh where, has Congress gone?

’’ he yelled to about a dozen other Republicans, the tourists in the gallery, some House pages, and Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, the lone Democrat who witnessed the unusual proceeding.

House Adjourns, But Republicans Linger to Bash Democrats on Energy

“The C-SPAN cameras were gone and the microphones were off, but that didn’t stop a small group of Republicans from taking over the House floor after the House adjourned for five weeks to attack Democrats for leaving town without doing something to lower gas prices.”

“Madame Speaker, Where art thou?’’ Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, shouted from the well of the House. “This room is vacant of most members of Congress. Where, oh where, has Congress gone?

’’ he yelled to about a dozen other Republicans, the tourists in the gallery, some House pages, and Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, the lone Democrat who witnessed the unusual proceeding.

Republicans want Speaker Nancy Pelosi to all the House back into session to vote on the GOP’s energy plan, which calls for an end to a longstanding moratorium on drilling along the outer continental shelf and also seeks to boost conservation and research on alternative energy sources.

“Bring the Congress back. Let’s have a real up or down vote,’’ Minority Leader John A. Boehner said after coming into the chamber from a press conference.

“The American people expect Congress to represent the will of the American people,’’ he added, to the cheers of the group.

The event started before noon and looked like it could go on for some time.

After awhile, the Republicans got the bright lights turned back on and got the sound system operating.

They dragged big flip charts to make their points about energy.

Adam Putnam, R-Fla., said “This band of brothers here is staying late to make a point to the American people: We want to work,” he said. The Republicans in the chamber then clapped and chanted “Work, work, work.’’

Pelosi and other Democratic leaders oppose GOP efforts to drill in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or end the offshore ban. They say tens of million of acres of federal land and ocean floor are already available for drilling and have proposed “use it or lose it’’ legislation to force oil and gas companies to use their leases or give them up. They have also proposed a series of other steps, including forcing President Bush to release tens of millions of barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, a step the Democrats say would lower world oil prices quickly by increasing supply.
