So what did Obama learn during this time? Absolutely Nothing.
In fact, the Investigative Panel said he tried covering up the spill data.

Where is Obama's "New Plan"?? He doesn't have one. All he's saying now is that ceo's will have to sign a letter saying they are compliant with safety regulations! Obama has to be the dumbest sob I've ever seen.

@the Messiah who uses an offensive, hatemonger icon;

...hey, let's just listen to Palin and the failed GOP, and go back to cut taxes / cut govt that we tried for the 3 decades of the Reagan/Bush era. In fact, let's get ANOTHER big tax cut to the wealthiest as we did in 1981 and 2001.

I mean, that worked SO well to deliver Trickle Down prosperity. Almost nobody is unemployed now. And the banks and oil companies and health insurers, heck - they POLICED THEMSELVES!!! Get government out of the WAY by golly!

Abe Lincoln would have said;
"You can fool some of the people, ALL of the time"... ;^)

No one cares if you're offended sally.

Everyone sees rising Unemployment, Poverty and War yet Obama thinks he should spend time with George looney Clooney talking about of all things, the Sudan election.

That's the kind of misguided focus the voters have seen enough of from Obama and the Jackasscrats.

Trickle down econmics worked in that it provided jobs (prosperity) to the masses. Compare that to the massive jobless rates that the uncertainty being created by the current administration is causing.

AND since this Deep Water Moratorium has been in effect shallow water well permits have been decimated to only FOUR permits further delaying any recovery in the Gulf region after Katrina and BP. In a typical 6 month period, the time since the disaster to date, 84 permits for shallow water drilling are made. America wake up by 2012 to vote this Articulate Incompetent Clown outta here!

They will probably reinstate it after the election. It's just another stunt from the worst President in history.

President Obama is doing the right thing. Some time you have to put on the brakes and take time out for an inspection. This will also help avoid layoff`s in the oil industry.

Like it or not it's legitimate and legal foreign investment. If we want to close off the energy market, you have to Nationalize the Industries.

Are you willing to do that?

What? Inspections are supposed to happen throughout the year.

Reports are that Obama reduced Inspections before the disaster.

The moratorium killed jobs. You seem to have missed that part in your assertion that it will help avoid layoffs.

Lifted, but with regulations and restrictions. If you do this, then the government will allow this to happen.

This is what small businesses are being told regarding taxation. You'll get tax deductions if you do what we tell you to do. Buy certain things, do certain things.

It's not the business operators' choice but what the government is telling them to do!

NO to ALL democrats. OUT with them all. OBama has his VETO PEN and needs a two thirds override. Out with ALL democRATS. To give the opposition some backing in dealing with Obama.

NO to ALL DEMONcRATS. Vote!

And governors control YOUR healthcare. A democrat governor will give you ObamaCare. NO to democRAT governors!

That S.O.B obama was sending billions of our money to let offshore drilling go on during the communist ban on us. November can't get here soon enough. And I'm just waiting on the next American hero to get rid of obama. Anyone would be better then someone who may be book smart but failed common sense.
