    What's a newspaper? Is that like a liberal print job?

    Actually, several states support it. And this includes parts of Alaska. California pretty much doesn't like it, and he excluded them.

    You'll spin anything.

    It is good politics but by no measure what America needs.. unfettered access to her own energy reserves.
    Our oil will do absolutely nothing to help our energy needs. We simply don't have enough to make a dent. It's a drop in the bucket.

    So to speak.....
    I do think we should be looking at drilling down by Cuba before someone else does.....
    We should leave our strategic supplies untouched, for when we really need them.....
    ..... andpump the Middle East dry, then we won't need them.......

    portends? what does that mean in this context?
    I was at first fooled by this drilling thing too, and as such even told a couple folks that he had done a good thing until I read what his actual statement was... I also gave him credit in the pre-inauguration times when he was selecting his cabinet.. all the way up to his 4th day in office when in the dark of night he signed a moratorium on all oil exploration in on our lands and offshore. When he iced those pirates he also got a BIG atta'boy from me!

    portend.. indicate. tell of..

    DETRACTOR?? WOW that's pretty strong language!..

    Exactly! The fact that we only have small supplies means we should save them, not suck them up. Especially for national security reasons.

    It's just like the whole government spending argument - don't spend like pigs now and make our grandchildren pay for it. You'd think more conservatives would get this.

    Our oil, natural gas, oil sands (still lacking some technology, but works already when we get near about $3 gal for gas), and COAL.. BUT you're right we only have enough for a 1/2 century or so... But I DO know where you get that info.. I watch MSNBC and CNN too... It's a DAMN liberal lie! So is "it will take 10 years" for it to get from drill set to market.. as well the whooper about we can't have the fuel we mine here.....All that crap came obviously, from the same source (I have no idea where but it must be true I saw it on TV...)

    Had we started 10 years ago, we would be energy independent now... if we don't start now we won't be independent in 10 years from now either! The kick in the pants is we've already spent 1/2 trillion dollars on "energy independence" that was squandered by bureaucrats and we gained nothing from it..

    I am only a "far-righty" when it comes to the federal government.. I am pro entitlement programs run by the states, my godson is a MD survivor and without entitlements he simply would not be alive today... I also support some gun control as provided by the states as long as it doesn't infringe the 2nd... I take great exception to the power hungry in Washington (progressives on both sides) when they start stepping on the Constitution. I realize that we have ALL (except the eldest of us) been taught that the Constitution was a flawed document.. I have learned better. And yes Virginia I do believe that socialists exist, maybe an over simplification, but that collectivism is alive and well in Washington and the Whitehouse itself.

    I believe the Constitution is a contract and that Washington is in breach if it.

    I am NOT your enemy.. I am an American.

    Our own supplies are useless unless they are drilled and ready to go. Waiting till an emergency is too little too late.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
