When Republicans are in power offshore drilling is great!
When Democrats are in power offshore drilling is great!
And everyone wonders why nothing ever changes.......
"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."
"Despite its pro-environment pledges, the Obama administration urged the court to revisit the decision."
"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."
"But the proposal kept much of the Bush plan intact, and even added for the first time new lease sales off the coast of Virginia"
"Salazar, and by extension Obama, have pursued the same offshore program as the Bush administration, even while playing a smoke-and-mirrors game,"
Obama - Change you can believe in.
