Giuliani: Consider More Offshore Oil
Forbes ^ | April 4, 2007 | BRENDAN FARRINGTON/AP

Posted on 04/04/2007 6:11:50 PM PDT by FairOpinion

Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday said everything has to be considered if the United States wants to break its reliance on foreign oil, including more drilling off Florida's coast.

Calling the energy supply a major domestic problem, Giuliani said the nation needs to focus on nuclear power production and renewable energy sources. In the meantime it also needs to see what oil can be tapped, he said.

"Energy independence means everything has to be open for discussion," Giuliani said when asked about offshore drilling. "The idea of having more oil under our command, so to speak, or within our orbit probably for some period of time is going to be important. The ultimate goal, however, should be renewable sources of energy."

Well you know that I agree with you 100%. The Rudy I know doesn’t take crap from anybody. I just hope age hasn’t mellowed him :-)

BTW, the last several polls on FR indicate rudy gets around 10% support at best. Sucks, eh, dude?

Doesn’t look like it. He was great on Hannity the other day — a real leader, just what we need. :)

You know what cracks me up about this forum? This was the place that largely wanted Alan Keyes as their guy in 2000. LOL. That didn’t work out too well for them then and it’s not working out too well for them now. They’re seeing themselves marginalized every week and it’s freaking a lot of people out.

You constantly complain about FR, but are still here. It’s very similar to battered spouse syndrome. Go ask your shrink husband about that one. You know, the one who won’t “allow” you to donate to FR.

What kind of spouse won’t “allow” another to do anything, btw?

Thanks for the great job you’re doing, areafiftyone. I’m sorry that the Rudy threads devolve into such ugliness by the Rudy haters. Their charges get more inflammatory by the day and you handle it with grace and kindness.

My husband isn’t a shrink and no man would want his wife financially supporting a site where men are permitted to speak to woman the way some of the freepers here have been permitted to do.

But carry on with your he-man act. Most of us know what you are and it’s ugly and maladjusted.

Wrongggggg! Just pointing out that you’re beating a dead horse here. We’re only at 10% at FR and it seems that with all the energy being spent on these pro-Rudy threads could be used to light a fire under the candidate(s) of your choice. Just common sense.

Before I call it a night, let me add that I find it quite amusing that most of these maladjusted freepers spend more time bashing all the candidates. The only ones they support are those who either a) haven’t announced; or b) don’t stand a chance of winning.

Now, I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like a winning strategy and it certainly doesn’t sound like they actually support the GOP in any fashion.

Also, most of these people are the same ones who thought Alan Keyes should be our nominee in 2000 and called Bush a cokehead, so you can see that their political sense isn’t exactly in sinc with the rest of the country. Thank goodness.

So, make a big deal of a typo.

Santorum WAS a conservative Senator, who was defeated because the conservatives stayed home in 2006.

This is straight out of the Clinton War Room.

NOW THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN ‘BOUT.

My grade school memory in geography is the paragraph that said “[insert country] is rich in natural resources including minerals, diamonds, coal and oil.

Since when has it become a sin against nature to utilize our own natural resources for the betterment of Americans?

I agree with Mr. Giuliani on these environmental issues.

“I wonder how some of these anti-abortion zealots would react if their wife or daughter was brutally raped by a criminal of a different race. Would they want their said wife/daughter to have the baby then?”

Yes I would. It would be very traumatic, but murder is murder. It isn’t the poor baby’s fault! Why punish him/her? And I will just bet that the baby would end up being a blessing and a beautiful gift from God!

Maybe Rudy could use tax payer money to fund research on how to use the tax payer funded abortion “products” to fuel our cars.

Different topic.

Eneregy independence is part of national security. Without national security, not much else matters. Or is it just a pesky problem that will go away?

+1 to Rudy on this...although i am not a supporter of his, how does he think Florida will go for this?...i can’t speak for California but i know that Florida will fight this tooth and nail...my state is saturated with oil rigs on its small coast (AL)...it ticks me that FL won’t be a player and my state probably uses an 1/8th of energy in comparison.

We could use nuclear energy for industry and electricity for homes, etc. and only use oil for cars — getting it from domestic production.

I've been saying that for 30 years.

Liquids are portable, ergo use liquids in machines that are portable (cars, buses, trains, planes). Non-portable enrgy for entities whaich are non-portable energy consuming. Seems pretty simple to me...
