    Did Obama compromise on the drilling moratorium? New coal regulations? CAFE standards? The Stealfromus package?

    The only time the Democrats compromised, was when they stopped and said, "we better not do that, we'll get voted our, for sure!". That's not, "compromise", that's, "CYA".

    Obama is a hypocrite. One of the major problems with politics is how he rants like an arrogant child and points fingers at everyone but himself.

    Of course Obama compromised on the drilling moratorium. In case you missed it, new drilling permits are presently being approved. And of course Obama has compromised on greenhouse gas emissions. Has he been pushing for cap and trade? No. Has he proposed a national energy tax? No. The stimulus package? Of course he compromised there. He had to in order to get a few votes from moderate Republicans. Taxes? Yes, he compromised away sunsetting the top Bush tax cuts. Health care? He compromised away the public option and lower drug prices through collective bargaining. Debt ceiling? He compromised away essentially everything Democrats were seeking.

    I just read this thread and you people are crazy. 90% of everything said in here was ridiculous. This topic does not represent reality or even the view of a normal American. I don't think people understand what socialism, racism, and fear is.

    Socialism is when money is taken from the people and held by the government so the people never see it and never benefit from it.

    Racism is when you dislike someone because of their race, not their politics or policies.

    Fear is when you don't have a job and the mortgage is due last month.

    How many have been approved in the past nine months? 6? He shut down 33+ rigs.

    Guys back things up with sources, it helps your argument.

    He has been giving permits. Unfortunately Oil price is more directly dependent on speculation than supply.

    Finally while I believe we should drill more it is not the solution to our problem, it can have a somewhat positive effect. The bottom line is we don't have enough reserve sin America to last very long even if we drilled it all. Some of that drilling is also really expensive and would increase the price of gas.
