The street below Danny Chen's window in lower Manhattan has changed over the last decade from a bustling four-lane thoroughfare to an empty road lined with police barricades.

Obama takes the Oil Money over Court Ruling

Obama admin successfully petitioned Court to Overturn an April 2009 Ruling that determined Gov was "Unprepared" for Major Spill

JULY 5, 2010

Obama Decried, Then Used, Some Bush Drilling Policies

Less than four months after President Barack Obama took office, his new administration received a forceful warning about the dangers of offshore oil drilling.

The alarm was rung by a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which found that the government was unprepared for a major spill at sea, relying on an "irrational" environmental analysis of the risks of offshore drilling.

The April 2009 ruling stunned both the administration and the oil industry, and threatened to delay or cancel dozens of offshore projects in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite its pro-environment pledges, the Obama administration urged the court to revisit the decision. Politically, it needed to push ahead with conventional oil production while it expanded support for renewable energy.

Another reason: money. In its arguments to the court, the government said that the loss of royalties on the oil, estimated at almost $10 billion, "may have significant financial consequences for the federal government."

The U.S. Court of Appeals reversed its decision and allowed drilling in the Gulf to proceed—including on BP PLC's now-infamous Macondo well, 50 miles off the Louisiana coast.

The Obama administration's actions in the court case exemplify the dilemma the White House faced in developing its energy policy. In his presidential campaign, President Obama criticized the Bush administration for being too soft on the oil industry and vowed to support greener energy forms.

But, once in office, President Obama ended up backing offshore drilling, bowing to political and fiscal realties, even as his administration's own scientists and Democratic lawmakers warned about its risks.

After the Macondo well blew out, sinking the Deepwater Horizon rig and causing a catastrophic spill, Mr. Obama said his administration should have been more vigilant in handling the oil industry. "More needed to be done, and more needs to be done" to tighten oversight, he told reporters recently.

Still, the administration defends its intervention in the court case, and says the ruling made it look more cautiously at whether to open new areas to offshore drilling.

More PROOF Obama knew of the Problem but pushed forward because of the MONEY!!!!!!

So vote Bloomberg out of office. What is wrong with people who see politicians doing stupid things, and still don't go to the polls, and vote them out. We have elections to correct any mistakes we make at election time.

You can't vote Bloomberg out of office. He has reached his term limit. He is now trying to figure our what is next. Governor? Senator? Filthy Rich businessman?

Drug lobby launches pro-Reid TV blitz in Nevada...Reid has 25 million from his big business’buddies and both he and the unions have backed him, not the American people…….“LETS MAKE A DEAL HARRY” WHO DO YOU THINK HIS VOTE WILL FAVOR, YOU OR BIG BUSINESS, THAT PAYS HIS WAY?

Obama denies any Israel, US rift...BUT HIS LIPS WERE MOVING……………….

UPDATE: MORE CLAIMS OF RACE BIAS AT JUSTICE... YEP, THE MOST RACIST PRESIDENCY IN OUR HISTORY, INCLUDING SLAVERY.

US v. AZ...THE US vs THE OBAMA AGENDA

HOLDER: Immigration law 'crossed a constitutional line'...FUNNY SINCE IT MIRRORS FEDERAL LAW………………….BOTH HOLDER AND OBAMA BY FILING THIS SUIT ARE ADMITTING TO NOT DOING THEIR JOB NOR UPHOLDING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE.

THE HYPOCRACY OF THE LIBERALS………..

SPRINGFIELD, Ill.(AP)- Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has handed out raises—some of more than 20 percent—to his staff while proclaiming a message of "shared sacrifice" and planning spending cuts of $1.4 billion because the state is awash in debt.
The Democrat has given 43 salary increases averaging 11.4 percent to 35 staffers in the past 15 months, according to an Associated Press analysis of records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
SOUNDS JUST LIKE ODOODLE AND HIS 54 CZARS……………….

I bet Bloomberg could clinch the VP spot by financing Ron Paul’s 2012 Presidential bid. Now Paul is demanding big cuts in the Defense Budget. Tea Partiers will now have to choose between Big Government military spending and Small Government no tax spending. Making that kind of decision could give Right Wingers a nervous break down. Still nobody talks about ending subsidies to the oil companies. Even Ron and Rand won’t touch that one.

If Bloomberg is an idiot as Mayor, how stupid do you have to be to vote for him to be Governor, or Senator? Why do you think we have elections? To clean out the Gene pool. This year the Democrats cannot run on their record for re election, so they are resorting to Character assassination. They are checking tax records, divorse records. Like they are free of character flaws. The American people will vote them out, because of their Congressional votes, not whether the Republicans paid their property taxes on time.

I guess by bringing our democracy overseas to countries that don't want it, depletes the supply we have here.

What a shame!
