    U.S. Won’t End Gulf Drilling Ban

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/02/us...ll.html?src=me

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is rescinding its decision to expand offshore oil exploration into the eastern Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic coast because of weaknesses in federal regulation revealed by the BP oil spill, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced on Wednesday.
    Mr. Salazar said that drilling would remain under a moratorium for those areas for at least seven years, until stronger safety and environmental standards were in place.
    Previously, I could make sense of Obama's actions. This one truly baffles me and I cannot think of a good reason that this route would be pursued. This make me wonder if Obama has the US's interests in mind at all. While this may seem minor to many, and its an industry I don't really care about, this action makes no sense and is screwed up enough to make me VERY strongly consider not voting for him on the next election. (he would have to actually do liberal things between now and the next election for me to even consider it)

    So this issue might be a turning point for me, but I have no plans to turn into a foaming mouth hack.

    There is no reason to ban off shore drilling. Obama sucks.

    You're just now figuring that out? Everything that Obama has done, to date, has been counterproductive.

    I just posted this in another thread on this but here it is again. Something is not right, as usual with this administration.

    Cuba, Mexico and China are or intend to drill in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Strait and Caribbean Sea. Only America has disabled itself. Stupid countries have no business existing. America is becoming very stupid.

    If you each take the time to look at everything Obama has done related the economy you will find that each plan the "Trifecta of Doom" Obama Pelosi, Reid, have backed heave been failures and have added to the economic problems.

    I have been warning people of Obama's plan from the start, and this is part of it.

    Obama promised to raise energy prices and this will help to do that.

    If you include the latest phony farm bill with the increases in Fuel prices the inflation that will hit after the first of the year so hard many people are going to experience the poverty and hunger of the third world, and I'm not kidding, one little bit.

    Obama will continue to push his agenda until either enough people wake up to put an end to his reign of destruction or he gets his way and we find our way of life is only a memory from the past.

    It must be the Soros Open Society at work.

    The countries we don't like are doing it so we should too. Somebody explain that logic to me please.

    Re: U.S. Won’t End Gulf Drilling Ban

    America can't protect its waters and shorelines from environmental damage from foreign drillers operating in proximity to the American EEZ. So why not drill? Who do you think is more concerned about the American environment...Chinese drillers or American drillers?

    America can't stop foreign drillers. So how is Obama going to protect America's environment? Suck up the oil with a straw?
