    ONCE MORE, why do you, and most of your liberal buddies, think that inceasing the supply of domestic oil is a bad thing. NO ONE is claiming that ALL of our usage can be domestic, BUT each additional barrel of oil we produce is one less we have to import.
    I think increasing domestic production is a great thing. As long as it's done safely and with minimal impact on the environment.
    What I don't like is politicians and their pundits lying to Americans by claiming we can solve our energy problems by drilling more in the US. The truth is we are screwed.

    The moratorium has been lifted. You should stop lying.

    If so why wouldn't increased drilling here be able to ween us off getting oil from our enemies?

    Also, why is Obama not allowing US companies back in the Gulf, yet giving billions to Brazil so they can get it and sell it back to us?

    I wasn't referring to the spill. Showing what impact offshore drilling has on our energy dependence.

    Don't recall hearing anyone saying we could "solve" our energy problem by drilling domestically, but a lot have been saying we could "improve" our energy situation if only we were allowed to drill oil from our own resources.

    Obama stopping drilling? According to articles there's 362 more rigs drilling for oil than last year (12 for the week).

    The number of rotary rigs drilling for oil increased 12 to 851. There are 362 more rigs targeting oil than last year. Rigs drilling for oil represent 49.0% percent of all drilling activity.

    Look Dude, there has been NO new permits issued since the gulf spill moratorium. I don't know what you are trying to pull here, but it is quite transparent, and dishonest.

    The Obama administration issued the first new deep-water drilling permit for the Gulf of Mexico since the BP oil spill, stoking cautious optimism Monday among some industry executives and Gulf Coast politicians about local oil and gas exploration.

    snip

    In mid-February, U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman ruled in Louisiana that the Interior Department had to act on drilling applications "within a reasonable time" and that delays had grown "increasingly inexcusable." The Republican-led House has promised to grill Interior Department officials about the delays at several hearings over the next few weeks.

    One permit, ONE! and that one was only due to pressure from the courts. Don't be ridiculous.

    GAWD, you guy's just can't help but be dishonest can you? From your own link....


    The number of rigs currently drilling for gas is 61 less than last year's level of 941.

    natural gas =/= oil.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's all energy is it not?


    is not natural gas drilling a by product of oil drilling?
