    This is sure to be a huge saver or creator of Jobs in the Gulf:

    The White House has confirmed that it is extending the moratorium on new drilling in the eastern Gulf for SEVEN YEARS.

    The White House won't allow any new oil drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico for at least the next seven years because of the BP oil spill.

    A senior administration official told The Associated Press on Wednesday that drilling leases won't be considered in the waters off Florida as part of the change. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision hadn't been announced yet.

    He said that because of the BP spill, the administration now understands the need to elevate safety and environmental standards. Before the spill, the administration had considered a plan to allow drilling in the eastern Gulf...

    But what kind of common sense can we expect from a government that forces a four year old boy who to remove his leg braces at airport security.

    TSA apologizes for forcing 4-year-old to remove leg braces at airport screening -

    An Obamanoid Motto: never use a scalpel when a chain saw is available.

    Another dumb decision by the Dimocrat in chief. Well, at least he's consistent.

    You have GOT to be the DUMBEST person on USMB.

    All those spills?

    ONE

    B/c of ONE spill OBAMA is killing 1 MILLION jobs. These jobs will not come back, b/c the companies will close and move on, it will take decades to recover from this stoopidity.

    and your happy about it.

    TM sees one point of data and thinks it's a trend.

    Which 'Splains quite a bit about the lack of complexity in her neural synapses.

    This is simply unreal. They were told that the 5 year moritorium would kill 1 million jobs. So the only logical reason for EXTENDING it is to kill more jobs.

    Why? why does obama hate American oil workers?

    Obama is a the worse kind of ideologue - a narcissist who cares nothing for how his policies impact "the little people".

    What was it Bill Maher said? Oh yeah, "fuck their jobs". Sounds like the Obama administration is taking his advice to heart, plus we have the added benefit of being even more dependent on foreign oil since we can't drill for it in our own backyard. Makes me wonder if this isn't a ploy to make "green" energy look more attractive.

    They launched the Volt last week. Look for gas to go sky high.
