After KILLING American capitalism and business, NOW, he needs some cover, eh?
"Obama is to announce on Wednesday a plan to permit exploration for oil and natural gas off the coast of Virginia as a way to create jobs and reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil."

It’s a deal of some sort.
It’s a trap.
Heads are exploding over at DU...
Of course it is. He will sell the oil leases to china and we will not get the benefit of it. He will say... well china will not have to buy as much oil on the market so there is the benefit. Same thing when clinton took our oil reserves and sold them to European oil companies and left america nothing.
This is B*llS***. Don’t fall for it. He will never allow actual drilling. This is only to show that he is ‘open’ to the idea of Offshore drilling.
That’s what I was thinking too because he ALWAYS has an angle to screw us over. ALLOW drilling then TAX the operation by having the Feds confiscate the rig.
Thanks dear leader, for allowing us to explore for our own oil.
How long until his radical enviro-wacko supporters and EPA files lawsuits to tie the plan up in the courts for years?
Yep, just another OBAMA made CRISIS for America, so that he can push through some more SH!t.
Does Virginia get a say in this?
It's terrifying just to imagine what our country would be like if they had an 'ideal' president in office. Sure, right now we are probably seeing the closest thing to it, but 0bama doesn't go far enough toward feeding their liberalism...
So to give it to some buddy who gave election funds?
Some Soros associate?
It’s just to divert the anger over health care.
obama’s pretending that he’s going to toss us a bone. We forget all about their health care slap across our face and we run over there to talk about the bone. Only he’s got a string tied around it so he can pull it back real quick after things quiet down.
Whose “Healthcare Vote” belongs to this decision ?
American Solutions has been pushing, too. (Newt)
I think it all has something to do with giving something to get Cap and Trade passed.
They lose a few battles to win the war.
IIRC, BO didn't open anything up, this happened in 2008--BO SHUT DOWN the idea after taking office, and now is pretending it is all HIS idea.
Also, what price is BO demanding? Socialized oil companies? Crippling energy taxes?
I do not trust the boob.
