    Also, Conservative Democrat Bart Stupak made sure Pres. Obama signed an executive order that would eliminate any public funding for abortion. That sounds like something the Republicans would be in favor of. Just because they didn't vote for it doesn't mean that the legislation leaned more towards their direction.
    You do know the health care bill trumps an executive order. Stupak may have once said he was a conservative democrat, however, after voting for taxpayer funded abortions based on a flimsy executive order, I'd say he more than lost the conservative title to his democrat voting record.

    Arctic Change: Global - Global Temprature Trends

    Calendar year 2009 was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, according to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) analysis of surface air temperature measurements. Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures, according to the GISS analysis. The past year was only a fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest year on record, and tied with a cluster of other years — 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 1998 and 2007 — as the second warmest year since recordkeeping began.


    I liked republicans much better when they cared about the environment.

    No mystery here, just politics. Both Congress and Obama know our immediate economy depends on oil and coal. Just because they signed onto GW doesn't necessarily mean they believes it, (common sense demands proof, not just theory) but GW is a plausible way to hire new people, and that's the immediate goal.

    Only if it conflicts with the order. Does it?

    I honestly think if Obama is doing this truly with good intent than I am all for it and this is a +1 for me. I don't understand why many conservatives are upset with Obama doing this. If they are for more oil drilling in the US (as I am for as well) why does it matter who authorizes it? Conservatives and those supporting off shore drilling should be happy about this. If it's based on principal than we should be accepting this as a good thing and acknowledging that Obama made the right choice in our eyes. If it's about partisanship then just simply hate it because it was proposed by a man with a (D) in front of his name. I'm all for it regardless of who or whatever political party brings it to fruition.

    They're mad that they didn't get to do it and get credit. And they're mad that Obama isn't living up to their goofy extremist portrayal of him.

    This will do nothing to lower gas prices by the way, now or ever.

    How will it not lower gas prices? And even if it doesn't this will still be a good thing. It means wealth stays circulating in the US and not to foreign countries. Plus if we are energy independent then we won't have to worry about oil embargoes (like what has happened in the past). Energy independence is a good thing and drilling for oil in America is a great step forward.

    If Obama is serious about this(still think it might be an April fools prank), then I think he deserves credit for it and I applaud his pragmatic outlook on our energy demands. He also recently approved a small amount(athough not enough IMO) for nuclear power research or building, IIRC. If he approaches our energy problems with an open mind that pursues our own energy reserves, nuclear, "green", or other alternative energies then he is doing the right thing IMO. Its when people shun any one of these avenues that we do discredit to our own economy.
