Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) slammed President Obama Friday for saying that increased drilling will not solve the country's energy woes. Its absurd that the president keeps simultaneously claiming theres nothing he can do right now to fight these rising prices at the pump, while pushing retread arguments from the Jimmy Carter era, Vitter said in a statement Friday.

Obama is an idiot.
I’m amazed there’s even a single United States Senator who has his head screwed on straight. Good news, I guess. Take it when you can.
Seems we always get a whole slew of those even when the article is clearly about how Obama is blocking progress.
The thing that amazes me is the attitude of “If I say it, you must believe it without question.”
Just how stupid does he think everyone else is? He reminds me of the developmentally disabled child who’s only slightly smarter than his peers - but thinks he’s brilliant anyway.

What an idiot he knows his reelection is tied to keeping the eviromentlist happy and oil prices down, soon he will chose Drilling, OPEC wants gas at 120.00 a barrel
Even if drilling for oil won’t make oil prices drop (and of course that clearly is wrong), it will create jobs. Jobs IN THIS COUNTRY. Jobs that we seriously need.
Oh brother!!! Got one question for Obama. Would growing more food help a starving man?
0bambi takes a page from Winston Churchill's WW2 book and makes war on the USA:
Churchill's strategic directive in WW2:
1. Target oil production and refining
2. Coal and power stations, railways and distribution
3. Manufacturing capacity starting with ball bearing factories.
As an aside...one of the reasons for the success of the British in the Battle of Britain air war (apart from radar) was access to 100 octane aviation fuel from the USA....gave the Spitfires the edge in acceleration and altitude.
