WASHINGTON, May 4 (Reuters) - Plans by U.S. President Barack Obama to expand oil drilling off the eastern coast of the United States are "dead on arrival" in Congress after the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Democratic Senator Bill Nelson said on Tuesday.
Nelson, of Florida, made the prediction to reporters at a new conference where he and two other anti-drilling Democratic senators also called for a huge increase in the cap on oil-company liability related to environmental disasters.

Did anyone actually believe it was ever really alive under this administration and this Congress? Please.

Nope. So now the phony carrot of proposed drilling offshore in conjunction with Cap & Trade is dead. Drilling off VA coast was laughable to start with.

It concerned a lot of us here in Florida because something happening like what is going in in the Gulf right now.

When China starts drilling off the coast of Cuba, your concern will be elevated. But hey, let's just shut down all the wells in the Gulf.:eek: I guess it is all right to fuck up LA eco system in order to supply gasoline to FL. You do remember the oil shortages after Katrina?

How did you get that from what I posted?

That sounded a lot like a one of those definitive statements you claimed you don't make.

Is it your time of time month or something? You have been acting like a jerk all afternoon and I haven't said one thing critical of you.

Yea an oil rig just exploded in the Gulf sending a wall of sludge into the US coastline, of course its dead on arrival. Give it a few months to completely fall out of the news cycle and it will be back on its feet.

Not me! We went thru Katrina and how many storms and nothing has happened in 30 years! 1 Act of sabatage or eco-terrorism and everything should be off the table!?! Armed attack boats in the gulf, protect our assets!
Oil has been in our past, our present and as much as the greenies think it wil be obsolete, it willl still be the main thing when I am dead!

What disgusts me is that these drug smugglers shoot a deputy and our sorry ass Federal government gives lip service. Send some Apache choppers on the border and let them shoot these druggies either on our side or their side of the border. If el Presidente does not like it, screw him.
