    Not to mention Arnold banning drilling off Calif.
    So Nelson had nothing to do with it?

    You blame democrats for limiting drilling when it's just as much republican.

    He fell for all that political spin during the election. The Oil companies calling to open up more areas, at the same time making record profits. It proves the theory there is a sucker born every minute.
    He ignors the fact that oil companies are shutting down refineries.

    Sure, why not! As long as you have young men and women dying to make the ME safe for big oil at the tax payers expense, why wouldn't you?

    We are talking about the feds not State Governors. Nice spin.


    http://www.seattlepi.com/national/370748_bush15.html

    President Bush on Monday lifted an executive ban on offshore oil drilling and challenged Congress to follow suit, aiming to turn the enormous public frustration about gasoline prices into political leverage. Democratic lawmakers rejected Bush's plan as a symbolic stunt.

    With gas prices topping $4.10 a gallon nationally, Bush made his most assertive move to extend oil exploration, an energy priority of his presidency. By lifting the executive ban on coastal drilling, Bush rescinded a White House policy that his father put in place in 1990.

    The move will have no practical effect unless Congress acts, too. Both executive and legislative bans must be lifted before offshore exploration can happen.

    Bush had called on Congress a month ago to go first, then reversed himself Monday. He said the country could no longer afford to wait.

    You are right: Bush Sr enacted the ban. Another republican.

    Bush's lifting of the ban had no effect on exploration.

    In 1981 Reagan signed a law banning some offshore oil drilling.

    Nice spin but take diesel. It was cheaper than gas until the dems and their environmental lobby decided sulfur must be taken out then it became more expensive than gas. It also now gels at a higher temp.
