If only the GOP knew how to play hardball like this. We’d now be living in a Free Republic!

Is it time to sack DC yet? In about 5 months.

Burlap or cotton sack?

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.



The first thing that crossed my mind...as in 'Motion for Contempt' filed by the plaintiffs - soon.

BUT the question is, will they have the courage to do what must be done?

Representative Boner? John McWhatshisname? Olympia Snowe...? In a word, no. They are frightened of Obama and they will not have the courage to stop him...

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

No. Companies that are shut down will not let equipment sit idle. They will move the gulf equipment to Brazil and we will never see them or the jobs they provided again. Somewhere Soros is smiling.

“I hope anyone who voted for this walking insult of a President are now, totally awake.”

IMHO, those that sit out elections because the candidate is not pure enough and allow the Democrats to control the Congress are enablers and are as much a cause of this mess as the Democrats. When you don’t take sides both sides hate you.

The general attitude in LA is we hope you like freezing this winter because we don’t care. We didn’t put him in office. We voted for the other guy as bad as he was. And the reason he’s around is the same reason O is around.

“The question must shift to “what are we going to do about it”. Saying “no fair” is not going to matter to these people, and their media will cover for them and demonize anybody questioning the “why”.”

A couple of incidents come to mind:

“When in the course of human events.....”

“Fort Sumter”

Maybe the Administration should just present “the further advance of the Progressive agenda, which includes placing more restrictive controls on the free marketplace aimed at destroying Capitalism” as their justification for the moratorium.

In theory you are correct. To issue another moratorium would indeed be contempt.. As in, “Yeah we heard you but we’re above the law so take THIS!” Never has the term “War over oil” been so appropriate, except this time it’s the American Gov’t vs. Americans.

Obama has his will. He was granted it when he was elected.

Stop & think about just how silly that sounds.

He represents US. The office is much bigger than one man.

And its MUCH bigger than this man.

“Well, also that Putin doesn’t throw a ball like a limp-wristed sissy, “

Putin is macho. Obama is metrosexual.

I am not a big fan of Putin, don’t get me wrong. I just acknowledge that he is actually trying to build up his country. Unlike our current president, who couldn’t be doing much more damage than he already is, from the war to the economy to social policy.

Agree. . .now we are facing - among other grave threats per Obama - the re-creation of our political electorate by Executive 'fiat'. And whether by those, 'too late smart' or just 'forever stupid'; America's damnation will move forward by by Obama.

And the 'man who would be King' may become, just that.

It's heating up pretty good down the bayou (Larose, Golden Meadow, Morgan City, Houma etc.). Those boys are getting more miffed by the day.
Buddies of mine who work for a big wireline company have already been told in a round about way that if they want their jobs, overseas may be their only option.

I really hope folks are watching Glenn Beck on how Soros and his ilk, including people in the administration, are profiting off of this moratorium through Petrobras.

It's directly out of Atlas Shrugged, Cloward and Piven on steroids. The President creates a shortage of oil here while financing drilling in Brazil, who will be so happy to sell us their oil so we don't have to buy it from those awful Saudis, while socialist Petrobras investor George Soros rakes in the cash and the rest of us pay $10 for a gallon of gas.

Think Ken Salazar is in on the plan, or is he really that stupid?

This is so cool. The lefties have just been bitch slapped and their coming right back for more. There is no logical, engineering or ecological reason to stop drilling in the Gulf. All Salazar is doing is providing another opportunity for this judge to shine light on the commies in the WH.

The rise will not happen that fast.

This order does not shut down existing production, only drilling of new wells.

It will damage our domestic industry for a decade with the impact of lost jobs. But the flow of oil will hardly change at all over the next few months. The production impact is more long term.

"IOW the govt has to show a compelling state interest that outweighs the damage that will be done."

Thanks for your reply. Somehow I don't think this Judge is going to take too kindly with their issuing another ban. You'd think that whatever additional facts they have to support their viewpoint should have been included in their argument in the first place, or at least should be used in their appeal. I don't think issuing a whole new ban is going to go over very well. This morning, I see Drudge is reporting that the government shut down the dredging for the sand berms. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department wants them to move them 2 miles farther out. What good they'll do all the way out there is beyond me.
