Skip to comments.Interior secretary to issue new drilling ban (Unfreakinbelievable)
Posted on 06/22/2010 6:13:28 PM PDT by tobyhill
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one.
Salazar said in a statement that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. The judge in New Orleans who struck down the moratorium earlier in the day complained there wasn't enough justification for it.
Salazar pointed to indications of inadequate safety precautions by industry on deepwater wells. "Based on this ever-growing evidence, I will issue a new order in the coming days that eliminates any doubt that a moratorium is needed, appropriate, and within our authorities."

This douchebag really thinks he’s somebody special, doesn’t he?
Back to court. The Bowrama administration won’t quit until they stop all private business.
There is a jail cell in LA with Salazar’s name written all over it....
I hate these folks. HATE THEM
They are under the impression that nothing but their will matters.
Hey, ya want some oil for that Fiat?
Law is for you small people.
Stroke of the pen, law of the land — for us.
< /Obama >
AND they are trashing the judge as corrupt..man, these guys play hardball.
I wish we did.
“O” is really pissin people off with his Chicago tactics. Americans are classier than that.
No we are not fifty three percent voted for this.
...”Based on this ever-growing evidence”....What growing evidence, Salazar, the same type “evidence” you used when you typed in two paragraphs into an already signed report oil experts that outright said that an oil drilling ban would cause more harm than good?!
Like Glenn Beck said today, the ocean/offshore drilling companies are running 99.9% positive and you jackasses want to bring the American economy to a scretching halt over the 1%.............!? Idiots. =.=
Is it time to sack DC yet?
God forgive me, I am really beginning to hate Barack Obama. Must start praying about that. Right after praying for our country to be saved from the SOB.
Does this mean Obama is going to demand that Brazil stop their offshore drilling he gave them 10 billion dollars for?
"OK, Coleman won again!"
"OK, Coleman won again!"
"Hmpf! Franken won. Okay, game over. We're done here. Let's swear in our new senator."
Perhaps U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman will be amused? I think not.
And Brazil is drilling deeper wells in deeper water.
Actually that was 99.998%.
