    More hypocrisy from this administration. He runs around the country preaching about job creation and then stands in the way of every possibility that comes along to do exactly that. Ohio could certainly use the jobs right now too and considering how important that state is in the presidential election, this is an incredibly dumb move on his part.

    You beat me to it, DTMB! Here's what I was wondering .....




    Up to six months? Really, only as much as six months? Are they required to report in that time frame?

    It's hard to believe that the Obama administration is going to be willing to act on it in six months. In the middle of the campaign?

    Whether it's renewing the lease or putting a permanent kibosh on the jobs, that decision could come with a steep price tag. The cynic in me says it gets deferred until after the election.



    Indecision will make less news than decision will. So I have a really hard time foreseeing action.

    If Sarah Palin were in the Wh we wouldn't be having these jobless days. She'd put people to work extracting American energy for the American people..

    Barry is just trying to appease his environmentalist supporters. They already threatened non support of his reelection over Keystone.

    We all see how that played out.

    This looks like more of the same.

    Oh, c'mon. The jobs will still be there a year from now after the election and until then it's important Barry keep those environmental kooks from not supporting him in the election. Then he can toss them under the bus and get those drills running. It's politics...Chicago style.
