    Sure, the GOP has found that suckers just love their "drill, baby drill" campaign slogan. Obama is co-opting it!

    If it is not profitable to drill for oil in ANWR then it won't happen, but whatever oil there might be is of no use in the ground. Or is it "all about elk"?

    Drilling in ANWR would send a message that the Obama Administration is serious about doing something about energy, in this case oil. But as the American government appears to be indifferent to the difficulties, or adversarial to drilling, then speculators will continue to make a great deal of money. And so they should.

    It's fair to point out that it was Obama's Democrat Congress that stopped any drilling and while Clinton was President he vetoed Congressional approval, claiming it would take ten years before the oil arrived anyway. The idea that there is insufficient oil to bother with is just another excuse.

    It should be understood that what can be good for Obama might not be so good for the American people.

    Obama's GOP challenger last election was also opposed to drilling in ANWR - McCain said, "We ought not drill in the Everglades, we ought not drill in the Grand Canyon, we ought not drill in ANWR."

    The drill, baby drill campaign slogan has nothing to do with what might be good for the American people. Its only for trying to influence of the gullible. What's good for the American people is increasing our R&D efforts for alternatives and increasing conservation, both of which this Administration has funded higher than any president in history.

    Yes last time they were both liberals with wrong Ideas. I vote Constitution party so it does not matter. Of course maybe Bachmann will run.

    And before that Bush was the highest. Big deal Obama is doing little more than talking and campaigning.

    Not like it is unexpected, but every time I read sheer ignorance like this I have to laugh, not at what is written, flame bait of the highest order, but rather the arrogance, and ignorant statements put forth like this one.

    Cat, if you even tried to have an adult conversation with anyone your credibility might not be in the toilet like it is.

    What's good for the American people is increasing our R&D efforts for alternatives and increasing conservation, both of which this Administration has funded higher than any president in history.

    So your answer, much like Carter in the '80s is to put on a sweater, ride your bicycle to work, and stop traveling while we burn up the worlds food suppily in our autos and heating our homes...Meanwhile, we are NOT going to tap any of our untapped, proven reserves in ND, SD, AK, off the shores of the Gulf, Atlantic, or Pacific Oceans, because it just isn't fair that our own gas prices are lower than our Euro friends. And we are going to strangle our economy like this purposely while trying to come out of what could be seen as the worst recession since those Carter days, or before.

    Peak Oil is a myth, yet you buy this tripe without question, and willingly spew talking point garbage as if you know it all...But we are the gullible ones....

    What proof do you have that peak oil is a myth?

    Is it because it's a sound theory that you're having trouble with it?
