Existing Leases aren't the problem and that Azz Holobama knows it.

It's the NEW Permitting the Obama admin has been BLOCKING. The Federal Judge called that POS on this tactic and order him in Contempt.


It's time for Obama to part ways with his Naive & Juvenile ideology and Start DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR COUNTRY.

His announcement followed passage in the Republican-controlled House of three bills — including two this week — that would expand and speed up offshore oil and gas drilling.

The White House had announced its opposition to all three bills, which are unlikely to pass the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Obama wants high gas prices and he's going to make sure the American people Suffer.

Plans by Shell Oil Co. have been delayed by an air pollution permit blocked by the Obamam admin.

Obama said he would create an interagency task force or another Committee.

House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings of Washington, sponsor of the legislation, said it was "ironic" that Obama "is now taking baby steps in our direction" after the White House and congressional Democrats criticized the bills.

"The president is finally admitting what Republicans have known all along, that increasing the supply of American energy will help lower prices and create jobs," Hastings said.

In the weekly Republican message, Alabama Rep. Martha Roby said it's time for Washington to get serious about the challenges facing the country, including straightening out its finances and tackling the gas price issue. She praised the House for passing measures to expand domestic energy production "because when we're talking about energy, we're talking about jobs."

"The greatest threat to our economy, job creation, and the future of our children is to do nothing," Roby said. "We have to act. It is what we were sent to Washington to do."

Obama Wants Your Gas Prices High,

He Just Does Not Want The Blame For It




High energy costs to the Obamites are only unfortunate in terms of overcoming short-term political challenges. Otherwise, they are more or less welcome. That is not a partisan slur, but simply a summary of the 2007-8 Obama team’s view of energy prices — and the 2009-11 uninterest in exploring for new oil.

True, we are, as the president says, pumping more oil than ever. But that is only because of prior leases, approved by Clinton and Bush, that have come on line, and the quite spectacular — and unexpected — oil finds in the North Dakota Bakken fields.

If one were to collate Obama’s campaign rhetoric (bad coal companies would be “bankrupt” under his envisioned cap and trade plans, energy prices would “sky-rocket”) with that of Secretary Chu’s (“somehow” American gas prices should climb to European levels; we should be worried about our abundant fossil fuel resources that can “cook” us), then the present climb to near $5 a gallon gas is what the president and his energy secretary once thought would be salutary — a sort of Europe U.S.A.

After all, in a progressive feeble mind, we Americans in our ridiculous pick-ups and SUVs sort of got what we deserved.


OH! I forgot! Obama & Biden drive around all day in Armored SUV's that Kill people on bikes! Then they hop in a 747 to a Fundraiser or Helicopter to the Golf Course!

finally after 2 years he make a few small meaningless gestures while America rots on the vine. The republican leadership ought to be on this but they seem to be more clueless than when they had the obama clone.

The polls are showing that despite approval of the assassination of UBL, Obama is still underwater in terms of his handling of the economy. The increase in gasoline prices has impacted not just drivers, but consumers of any goods that must be transported.Obama's consiliatory gesture, as is noted in the article, once again bypasses that obsolete body of buffons called Congress. It is also pointed out that the necessary permits will take months and drilling off the coast of Virgnia must meet certain criteria before it actually commences, possibly by 2017.

Obama is already in contempt of court for refusing to reverse his moratorium in the Gulf, so this may have prompted him to at least appear to be addressing the drilling issue.

It cannot be forgotten that during the 2008 campaign, he promised that energy costs would rise as he incrementally imposed his totally "green" policies upon Americans. The coal mine disaster in West Virginia and the BP accident have given him the necessary ammunition, so to speak, to force the nation away from its traditional use of fossil fuels.

As is becoming more and more the case. Obama has "directed" the new drilling policy on no other authority but his own. It was predicted last fall that if Obama lost either the House or the Senate in 2010, he would proceed with his agenda via "executive order," a technique which should be used only in a state of extreme national emergency.

Required reading should be Shakespeare's "Juliius Caesar," which depicts a charismatic leader, beloved by the "rabblement," who turned his popularity into a dictatorship, with the Roman Senate bowing and scraping before him. I am not suggesting that well-placed individuals will attempt to end his reign. Instead, I am seeing the correlation between a Caesar-type ruler who has concentrated all power unto himself

We are looking at a modern day enactment of Acts I and II of one of Shakespeare's best known plays.(Of course, schools no longer teach euro-centric or American history in any depth. Most people, particulary the young, probably have no idea what I'm talkking about.)

Obama The Incompetent Empty Suit Boob, I guess will do or say just about anything to win re election. I'm sure this Christmas he will be sitting at the White house Christmas Tree dressed as Santa with Michele in an Elf costume handing out presents to kids.

Obama = FRAUD

Write "OBAMA SUCKS" on all you paper money.

Why doesn't he ramp up the installation of wind mills and solar panels and all the sh!t he's been spewing for 3 years? Blow a few billion on high speed rail that few would use right NOW! Demand that scientists invent new stuff NOW!

I am disappointed.
