Default Re: Obama to open offshore areas along coasts for drilling

So how does the email scandal play into Mr. Pooley's arguments? This article was prior to those headlines. I tried to find some of his articles written post November 2009 and haven't come up with anything. Now with NASA saying their data is even worse than East Anglias... Cap and Trade doesn't have a scientific foot to stand on right now. Will it in the future? I don't think so

He's got little choice but to swing right after that whole health care thing. By all means, I support this decision. Stop bombing and start drilling.

I gotta give Obama credit on this one. He realized we cant be dependant on foreighn oil and need to drill in our own yard. I just hope he dosent have another reason for doing this.

Obaaaaaaama yet again changes his stances - this time on offshore drilling. Sarah Palin was all for offshore drilling during the '08 campaign and guess who was opposed to it?

My question is, why is Bristol Bay off limits? Doesn't Bristol Bay have a large oil deposit? Is this going back to the fear of another Exxon Valdeez, or is he just trying to please someone?

Like Rev's said, Cap and Trade is going to be jammed down our throats soon. I think this is a political ploy to say "look, we gave the repubs offshore drilling which they wanted, now will they support my crap and tax bill or will they just be the party of no again."

Whats wrong is wrong and whats right is right....Kudos to our President.

Good post, too bad some people will still complain even if they agree with this decision since it's Obama who made it

Actually, as is the case for MOST of the solid decisions Obama has reached, this is simply taking a "failed Bush policy" and making it his own.

Which, as you embrace it, you also embrace the hypocrisy the left has shown throughout. When these policies were explored and implemented under Bush, they were evil and awful. Suddenly, when a Democrat embraces and implements the SAME EXACT POLICIES, they somehow are scrubbed clean and are resurrected and reborn as fresh, new, exciting, and, most mysteriously, GOOD policy ideas.

It is the apotheosis of hypocrisy...

Let's see, Haliburton&Blackwater still making billions on the war?, check.

Insurance companies to cash in with Romney-care? check

Sarah's "Drill baby Drill" in effect? check

Patriot Act intact? check


It's like McCain was elected

Dems are embracing republican policies now - that's change that should make the lefties howl
