WASHINGTON – In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, President Barack Obama is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines. At the same time, he is rejecting some new drilling sites that had been planned in Alaska.
Obama's plan offers few concessions to environmentalists, who have been strident in their opposition to more oil platforms off the nation's shores. Hinted at for months, the plan modifies a ban that for more than 20 years has limited drilling along coastal areas other than the Gulf of Mexico.
He must be feeling the pressure if he's doing this.Rest In Peace America

he's hoping that he can mollify some of us with a token give away. He figures that drilling will let him get away with cap and trade or amnesty for illegals.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

No drilling till 2012. Shutting down new drilling in the Gulf of M. and AK and preventing drilling in the Pacific. The Magic Negro is throwing a few scraps out to try and pass his cap and trade massive tax increases. I doubt that drilling will EVER take place off VA's coast. Too many Env. nuts in that part of the country so this is just a sham.

This is nothing more than a FDR trick.
When Townsend and Coughin thought up the idea of Soccial security and Long was going to run as a third party candidateon that , it was fear in the White House.
Then something must be done an advisor to FDR told him even though FDR was not in favor of Social Security. So he decide to "steal the lefts thunder". The advisor told him that a third party candidacy would cost him his presidency if it ran on a Social Security platform.
Obama is trying to steal from the rights thunder in this case. To bleed off some of the rights supporters or weaken them.
FDRs problem suddenly was cured by the Assasination of Long . Pretty good timing huh."When governments boot is on your throat, whether it is the left boot or the right boot is of little consequence." Gary Lloyd

I don't like the sound of that other shoe....
He's hiding something.Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
