    This will actually be a 3rd attempt, cause lost on an appeal on the 1st attempt.

    We depend on oil, well except for the leftists.
    The leftists have not been driving cars, riding on buses, using electric lights, using the Internet, buying items made from plastic, or taking a warm shower. We will finally have true equality, equal suffering for all.
    This pud puller in the WH has now become a rogue regime overnight by openly disregarding the Federal Appeals court ruling.:clap2:

    Obama attacks this court ruling, and taking Arizona to court as well, while throwing out the Black Panther voter intimidation case.

    Ah yes...hope -n- change indeed!!!!!

    Can anyone show me that other deepwater wells are a safety hazard? Are there other imminent disasters?

    FFS, as bad as this is, this is the first accident in the Gulf in decades. Unemployment and oil prices are high. This will just make things worse.

    This is dumb.

    Actually, leftists do drive cars, ride on buses, useelectric lights, use the Internet, buy items made from plastic, and take a warm shower (well, on this latter point, quite a few probably do not do this consistently).

    I've been against obama's foolish energy stances all along. This is political suicide down south. 2 judges already have told him he's wrong. I guess my perspective is clouded being in the industry. But why not just ban BP?
