'Member that? Got that all recalled from the memory banks? M'kay.
Now, you also remember the eight long years of the Bush administration, where every time somebody, anybody, even mentioned that it might be a good idea to do some drilling someplace, that the whole f-ing world was coming to an end? And you remember that it was the Democrats doing all the shouting and maneuvering and uproar? And the Iraq war was "blood for oil"? And Bush was in the pockets of Big Oil?
'Member that? M'kay.
And also you remember who it was that got drilling banned in California and the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast? Democrats again, remember?
And who's the friend of all Greenies everywhere? Who do the Greenies raise money for every election? Democrats.
Ok. So guess who is going to announce drilling in the Atlantic and the Gulf today at 11:00 AM?
[hee hee!] No go on, guess. [snicker!]
Yes, BARRY OBAMA my friends.
In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, President Barack Obama is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines. At the same time, he is rejecting some new drilling sites that had been planned in Alaska.
Obama's plan offers few concessions to environmentalists, who have been strident in their opposition to more oil platforms off the nation's shores. Hinted at for months, the plan modifies a ban that for more than 20 years has limited drilling along coastal areas other than the Gulf of Mexico.
