I was stuck at the car dealer getting a key programmed for over an hour and watched Fox News most of that time, all about the court order. One of the pundits (retired judge) said it will be difficult for the administration to reverse this one. Probably Supreme Court material later this summer, but until then the rigs are drilling.

A friend of mine is a Federal Judge like this guy. Lifetime appointment is a sweet deal. You really have to be crazy or stupid to be kicked out.

Barry knows we need the offshore drilling. So he makes a media circus about it to appease his left wing whack jobs. (while granting one company a new permit a couple weeks ago, $$$$ in his pocket)



*He then calls the judge on a secure line and tells him to stop his ban.

From the news the judge is a Bush appointee, I don't think O is in his pocket if anything O is pissed and going to appeal.

Oh, by the way O is trying to get gas up to $7.00 a gallon gas. Someone's going to make some money!! And we're going to pay.

Interior Secretary Salazar Seeks to Reimpose Drilling Moratorium

Why would the administration want this? Unbelievable pain from job loss.

O want's to destroy this economy and build it back in his image. No growth, no energy, High unemployed, unimaginable debt, and a people without hope.

A life were most will depend on the government for crumbs to survive. O is destroying the USA from within like a cancer.

LA needs drilling for its economy. FL derives little to no income from the oil industry, but makes billions from tourism.

Those two things (oil vs tourism) seem to be mutually exclusive this summer. Either you have drilling & spilling with no tourists or you have no drilling and hopefully still have vacationers.

So in Obama's political calculation, apparently Florida is more important.

Oil spills suck, that much I can agree on. Deep water drilling has huge risks that I don't much like and we all see why. The oil industry is necessary for our economy and we must find safer ways to get it (oil) out of the ground without these huge disasters.

Oil helps our economy>manufacturing cost are lower>Widgets are cheaper >people have better paying jobs>more disposable income>able to fill the family car and go to Florida on vacation.

It worked in the past and we can do it again.

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
