    Yeah, because oil companies are so popular right now. I'm sure this decision will win lots of votes. The voters were beating down the doors of the White House DEMANDING that the oil companies be allowed to drill offshore.

    Jobs are real popular right now. Obama has killed enough jobs, as it is. Sometime, over the next 18 months, he has to something, anything to cut the unemployment rate in half, to have even a half-ass chance at being re-elected.

    I don't see how this is good for Obama. It shows he went back on his word yet again, and he gave the oil shills what they wanted.

    How is this anything but a victory for industry?

    It's neither. This doesn't mean ****, either way, because the MMS isn't going to issue any drilling permits. The Libbo media isn't going to report that no drilling permits have been issued. Only the ignorant, both left and right, are going to buy into this.

    More importantly, we still have a media blackout on the Gulf region. That should tell you just how disastrous the "spill" (a.k.a stream of oil) was. The press isn't even trying to self-correct and let the public know that the First Amendment is not being honored by the government. We are not allowed to know what is really going on there or how much damage has been caused. I have a friend working there though as part of the cleanup, for what little good it's going to do. He said it's a complete gong show.

    I'm glad they won't issue new permits, but that doesn't matter since territorial waters all over the world are being sampled for more oil, and the arctic is next. The oil madness is never ending. There has been such little coverage of the toxic spill in Hungary where a waste pond completely overflowed into public water ways. That same situation is more than likely going to happen in Alberta where the tar sands tailing ponds are the size of lakes and could easily collapse into the athabasca. For those who don't know, that region has the most fresh water in all of North America, even more than the Great Lakes. Are we just going to wait for the inevitable?

    So, now, there is a coverup by the Obama Administration, as to how terrible the spill really was? It's trully amazing to watch Liberalism fall to pieces.

    So, in short, we're just all ****ed?

    The Liberal agenda is falling apart. Time for Liberals to just off themselves, since they don't have any real solutions, aside from toilets that have to be flushed twice, using half again more water and windmills that don't work in the cold.

    One would think, that with all the intellectual brilliance that the Libbos claim to posses, they would be able to come up with some answers, but all we hear is pissin'-n-moanin'. That's why Generation X is the most useless crop of people ever to be produced.

    You are too brain dead from watching Glen Beck and O'Reilly to see that nothing I said had anything to do with liberalism. Now shove off.
