    Salazar: Offshore oil drilling ban to be maintained in key areas

    So much for American oil production. Seems Obama is making sure his friends in Saudia Arabia are staying rich on American oil sales

    Post Carbon - Salazar: Offshore oil drilling ban to be maintained in key areas

    Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Wednesday afternoon that the Obama administration will not allow offshore oil drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico or off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts as part of the next five-year drilling plan, reversing two key policy changes President Obama announced in late March.

    The left has stymied the right. So conservatives must stymie the left. We must make sure that none of their renewable and alternative energy ideas lives or receives tax subsidies.

    It is better to pay a fortune to foreign dictators for fuel than to permit the American left to succeed.

    Meanwhile, several other countries drill there anyway. What a douche.

    Obama seems bent that we're all going to buy one of his Volt cars. You know, the "Car of the Year" that about 8 people bought.

    China is drilling in the Caribbean. Haha.

    America is hollow, and means less and less each day.

    There is no reason we shouldn't be drilling anywhere and everywhere that we have oil.

    Certainly much better to pay a fortune to foreign dictators, vice putting American oilfield hands to work and putting money into local economies.

    oafish obama is all over the place on this one

    the doof endorsed drill-baby-drill exactly one month before bp's blowout blew out

    Barack Obama reverses on offshore drilling - Darren Goode - POLITICO.com

    by july the lawyer loving lib was litigating, almost as if offshore oil came from arizona

    http://www.nytimes.com/glogin?URI=ht...26Q26AvCQ51Q26

    in october, just 2 months ago, trying to placate lost blanche lincoln, he was again doing the palin bit

    President Obama ends deep-water-drilling ban - Dan Berman - POLITICO.com

    his own epa exempted bp from environmental impact studies in april, 09

    U.S. exempted BP's Gulf of Mexico drilling from environmental impact study

    his mms approved 3 changes in the horizon's operation one week before the disaster, one of them 5 minutes after it was asked for, including allowance of the riskier one pipe method

    BP Revised Permits Before Blast - WSJ.com

    his own spill panel resolved that the white house misled the public as to the seriousness of the damage, lacked "competence and candor," and passed off as "peer reviewed" that which wasn't

    Public misled on spill, panel says- The New Haven Register - Serving New Haven, Connecticut

    his own ig at interior found the admin rewrote the recommendations of independent scientists, falsely painting the peers reviewed as favoring a ban they later said they didn't

    his own ig also LOL'd at ridiculous resorts to "peer review"

    Interior inspector general: White House skewed drilling-ban report - Dan Berman - POLITICO.com

    he's like a headless chicken

    proud, progressives?

    Those Americans aren't going to be allowed to drill and work any more than other Americans were allowed to harvest timber or fish. Environmentalists will prevent Americans from doing things which harm animal habitat.

    So environmentalists have stymied working Americans. So I'm happy to return the favor by sandbagging environmentalists who want tax subsidies for their pet energy projects.

    If working Americans can't drill, then environmentalists don't get to pursue renewable and alternative energy on a tax subsidized basis. I have no problem with importing crude oil from foreign dictators as long as American leftists are prevented from accomplishing their objectives.
