Frankly this is puzzling to me because it's out of character for Obama. He still is pushing to destroy the economy with his his climate change and energy bill, to fight problems that does not exist.
This is confusing at best, and makes me wonder what is really going on or is this a misdirection play to once again try to draw attention away from the PHONY Health Plan and all the taxes coming from it.
Curious, I can't wait to see what he comes up with next, it's a month away from April Fools day.
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.FOXNews.com - Obama to Unveil Offshore Oil Drilling Plans
March 31, 2010
In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, the president is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines, and is allowing an expansion in Alaska's Cook Inlet to go forward.
WASHINGTON -- In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, President Barack Obama is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines. At the same time, he is rejecting some new drilling sites that had been planned in Alaska.
Obama's plan offers few concessions to environmentalists, who have been strident in their opposition to more oil platforms off the nation's shores. Hinted at for months, the plan modifies a ban that for more than 20 years has limited drilling along coastal areas other than the Gulf of Mexico.
Obama was set to announce the new drilling policy Wednesday at Andrews air base in Maryland. White House officials pitched the changes as ways to reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil and create jobs -- both politically popular ideas -- but the president's decisions also could help secure support for a climate change bill languishing in Congress.
