Back to court. The Bowrama administration won’t quit until they stop all private business.

The will of the people needs to be shoved up these jerks' arses, I'm afraid.

They are under the impression that nothing but their will matters.

...”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. =.=

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."

Does this mean Obama is going to demand that Brazil stop their offshore drilling he gave them 10 billion dollars for?

It's how the Left plays the game. It's the Al Franken election all over again:

"Coleman won!"
Let's recount.
"OK, Coleman won again!"
Let's recount.
"OK, Coleman won again!"
Let's recount.
"Hmpf! Franken won. Okay, game over. We're done here. Let's swear in our new senator."

It worked with the FCC. It worked for the EPA as well. If the Obama administration can get away with it, they’ll do it.

Obama has his will. He was granted it when he was elected. The people voted for him and the rest of the Democrats.

That is all that counts.

The only way to change it is to not vote for him and his people in every election from now on.

I am not supporting him or his minions. I don’t like what he is doing just like most everyone here.

It shouldn't surprise anyone here that the guy is arrogant enough to believe he could get away with something like this.

I said this last year and I will repeat it again. Before this clown's administration is over, he will cause a constitutional crisis. I hope I'm wrong but I can see it coming. And you can bet your last nickle that this was Obama and not Salazar who is behind this.

This means they know they will not get a stay on the judge’s order.

This means they will get really slapped by the judge with a new order and perhaps a ruling of contempt of court

It is not Salazar that is behind this. It is Obama. Salazar would not do this if Obama were not for it.

This is just more of Obama’s putting his political agenda above the will and interests of the American people. In this case, it is particularly easy for him to bring the heavy hand of government down on a group of Americans (Gulf Coast folks connected with the oil and gas industry) because they are mostly non-union folks from red states. If they were black members of the United Auto Workers from Michigan, it would be “drill, baby, drill.” Instead, it’s “die, roustabout, die.”

It's going to be very interesting to see what happens if the Republicans take control of at least one branch of Congress. Obama’s power will be dramatically curtained. Obama will then use the executive order like he's a Caesar. Count on it. Nobody has stood up to this POS and it's apparent that he thinks he can do whatever he wants. The man simply doesn't realize he's not a dictator. I know there aren't all that many people here who voted for him but if there are a few then you need to realize just how stupid you were Nov 2008.

And Brazil is drilling deeper wells in deeper water.

That's the whole point in what Obama is doing. He wants to destroy the oil industry, force us to "depend" on foreign oil in order to gin up his argument for "alternative energy."

"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. "

I heard the White House was appealing today's decision. How can they legally issue a new drilling ban while appealing a court decision on their previous ban? Doesn't sound right to me.

Gulf coast folks yes, but a 6 month moratorium will kill the entire country. People who have jobs will not be able to afford the gas to get there. Truckers will not be able to make deliveries. The price will spike on all energy.
