Obama Kills Atlantic Offshore Drilling For Five Years
Big Government ^ | March 30, 2012 | John Sexton

Posted on 03/30/2012 1:27:16 PM PDT by trappedincanuckistan

Yesterday the Obama administration announced a delaying tactic which will put off the possibility of new offshore oil drilling on the Atlantic coast for at least five years:

The announcement by the Interior Department sets into motion what will be at least a five year environmental survey to determine whether and where oil production might occur.

Keep this article.

When Romney is sworn in we need to keep his feet to the fire to reverse acts like this.

So we’re going to study the issue to death???

Remember, Obama says he killed the Keystone Pipeline due to not having enough information and enough time to study the subject. It was the fault of Republicans in Congress who forced his hand on that issue, so he says.

So is this the latest liberal tactic on energy? We’re going to say we need to study and study and study?

Of course, on some issues, liberals want to rush to judgement. If the liberals took as much time studying the Trayvon Martin case, we would not have seen that become such a circus, because they would be calmly studying the evidence.

The Republicans should use this as a campaign issue. The Democrats may say, well, we want to study the issue and all that. At some point, a decision to study and study a subject is a decision not to proceed with it.

On the Keystone Pipeline, Obama says that he didn’t have enough information and enough time to study that project. He says he turned it down because Republicans forced his hand, and he didn’t have enough time to deal with it.

Of course, on some issues, Democrats don’t care. They rammed through a 2000 page healthcare bill, for example, which was still being written on the weekend Congress had the final vote on it. Some issues we see there is no concern about all the details. But when it comes to energy, we will study and study the issue, and decide not to do drilling because we are studying the issue.

I hope that critical masses of voters see through this claptrap explanation that they are studying the issue of drilling.

Several years ago in Hawaii the Dem-dominated legislature said they would appoint a panel to study HSA's because there was pressure to allow them in the state.

Still haven't heard from that panel.

"Study" is a way to dupe the public into thinking you've taken action so you can talk about something else.

Obama is becoming more and more of a demogogue every day.

Great point. So if Obama is re-elected, this issue will officially be on the back burner, because it’s being studied. As you point out, it’s possible that the study will never be completed, or a final report issued.

A decision to study the issue of drilling for five years is a de facto decision to ban such drilling. I hope the voters see this for what it is, as gas prices continue to escalate.

Yes, that is their tactic. That’s what they did to that poor man who wanted to open a mine somewhere (can’t remember the state). He finally stood up at a meeting and said he gave up, and how sad he was to see men coming to him with tears in their eyes looking for jobs. The enviro whackos are heartless commie thugs. They are going to reduce us to living in poverty.

There are leftist big money donors who are withholding their donations because they say Obama hasn't done enough for environmentalism.

I guess he has no choice but to issue draconian stuff like this...he's got to get them to change their minds and open their wallets because he is going to need LOTS more cash.

He will become more and more of a puppet on a string.

Oh oh, look out for more windmills and guys selling solar panels produced by companiees that won't be around a year from now (but got giant government subsidies, so don't worry about them).

This, the shutdown of the coal industry, the mic incident promising the Russians "flexibility" in the 2nd term, and the question what are you paying for gas today should be blasted as ads from now through election time.

Biden's call today for a "global tax" is frosting on the kick-these-people-out-of-office-in-November cake.

0bama is selling off our oil resources people.

Do a simple google search for China, Russia, and oil drilling in the gulf and you will realize all the gold in Ft. Knox and the promise of American productivity are truly bankrupt.

The oil in the Gulf is going to the highest bidder, while we hold our little ‘bans’ for the useful idiot environmentalists.

I am more than willing for Obama to have his house (in Chicago when we send his butt back there) completely powered by solar panels on his roof. All his lighting, heating, cooking, AC, TV, computers, hair dryers, etc., etc., etc., can be powered solely by solar panels.

When he is out of power after ~90 minutes, he can’t resort to ANYTHING else, including an external generator.

With leftists, it’s always “Rules for thee, but NOT for me!” Let’s change that paradigm!!

Yes, but they won't. That would require actually standing up and exposing the leftists for the hypocrits and moral cowards that they are and Republicans, being spineless cowards themselves, are too frightened to do that. The leftists might not like them if they take the fight back to the leftists and that could impact Happy Hour at the club!!

I have screen shots of his website and although I will vote for him, he had BETTER come through.

Literally, he could spend the first year of his administration undoing the four years of the previous one.

not enough info on the pipeline but he quickly went ahead to overturn don’t ask and used a bogus survey which most did not get and no combat troops did not get.

I can’t believe he’s doing even more to frighten the futures markets. He’s ensuring that gasoline prices will be high clear through next November. Millions of people will pay over $4/gallon to fill up their cars before going to the polls. It’s gotta hurt him bad. Could the financial support of the envirowackos really be worth that much? I guess the answer must be yes.

the usual place of course, cowering behind their doors and then sucking up tot he MSM so they don’t get called a name.
I mean heaven forbid if any of them speak up especially over conservative social issues and especially the homosexual agenda, hell they can’t even get Holder out of that place and overturn the DOJ.

Meanwhile McCain is looking for another war we can get into .
Romney and his ilk are at the homosexual elitist cocktail parties, letting them know he is for them whilst trying to get their money.
Crybaby speaker is somewhere but he sure ain’t where he needs to be

Pathetic isn’t it?
Is it any wonder the left have advanced their agenda so much.

Sarah Col Allen west please save us from this crap, you can get Michelle, Demint, NM Gov and some others to set another party called the conservative party or something

Seems that “all of the above” does not include oil, coal, or nat gas”

I truly believe Obama is trying to ruin the economy, while simultaneously taking credit for all the gains that are made in spite of his policies.

Really, if Romney gets in how do you undo this unless you get rid of the Dept and close it all down.

The point is he has planted legislative perverbial landminds everywhere in such a twisted intertwined fashion, maybe it will take the B@$tard Baird Capital Side of Romney just to cut it all to the bone and say "Your Fired".

Starting with a 50% haircut of all personal at that Viper Den the State Dept works for me...

wouldn’t surprise me and another thing I’m sure Kagan has already spoken to obama and told him the vote today.

Kennedy voted against us sir, oh no problem Kagan we’ll find something on him and blackmail him so he’ll vote differently in June.

Yiou can bet the left, Soros etc have their enemy list and I would love to have had a candidate who wins and then investigates obama, Kagan, Holder the DOJ and the MSM who got him elected.

There is so much corruption here that it must be hard for even for the loony loons on the left to actually think obama is open and honest.

Many of us have taken this oath. Notice the part about "defending The Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic" comes BEFORE the part about obeying the orders of the President.

I don't think it is a stretch to say this person in the White House is an enemy BOTH foreign AND domestic.
