    Well he said he was going to get us off foreign oil, he just didn’t mention our return to whale oil. Obama sure is behaving like someone who only wants one term. He may have hoped for two [or more] at first, but the job is so boring for him that he`s decided that since Gore and Carter are the two most beloved libs around, he can suicide-bomb the nation in 4 and then get back to the links where he clearly would rather be.

    “daddy, did you kill a whale, yet?”


    Environmentalists, already peeved with the administration’s handling of the Gulf oil spill, are accusing President Obama of breaking his campaign pledge to end the slaughter of whales.

    The Obama administration is leading an effort within the International Whaling Commission to lift a 24-year international ban on commercial whaling for Japan, Norway and Iceland, the remaining three countries in the 88-member commission that still hunt whales.

    The administration argues that the new deal will save thousands of whales over the next decade by stopping the three countries from illegally exploiting loopholes in the moratorium.
