    Obama to speed up oil production in the US. Obama has directed the Dept of the Interior to conduct lease sales in Alaska and in the Gulf.

    King CommieObammie has flipfloped yet again and has adopted another Repub position: Drill Baby Drill!

    He keeps flipflopping I will have to drop the Commie part of his name. :)

    Obama must of final realize that increasing production at home will drop gas price. No shit Sherlock? What took you so long?

    will no doubt denounce his traitorous behaviour, and a Green Candidate will emerge to challenge him in the Democratic Primaries.

    LOL, the Obama is a two faced LIAR.

    Obama ‘s Weekly Address: Drill, Baby Drill!
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, May 14, 2011, 3:56 PM
    Barack Obama told us time and time again that would we couldn’t drill our way to energy independence. That’s why he supports drilling in Brazil and government funded green energy projects.

    Just last year he told an audience,
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=846JXk22Z7I&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Obama: You Never Heard Me Say 'Drill Baby Drill'[/ame]

    “You never heard me say, ‘”drill, baby drill… We can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

    Maybe we can.

    Today, in his weekly address, Barack Obama said he will open Alaska’s national petroleum reserve to new drilling, to help bring down gas prices.

    Of course, with Obama, we’ll believe it when we see it.

    Oh it's good for the country. It's one of the few things he has done right. But, we also know that it is all because of politics.

    Obama to Open Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling for First Time
    By JOHN M. BRODER
    Published: March 31, 2010

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is proposing to open vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, officials said Tuesday.

    The proposal — a compromise that will please oil companies and domestic drilling advocates but anger some residents of affected states and many environmental organizations — would end a longstanding moratorium on oil exploration along the East Coast from the northern tip of Delaware to the central coast of Florida, covering 167 million acres of ocean.


    Under the plan, the coastline from New Jersey northward would remain closed to all oil and gas activity. So would the Pacific Coast, from Mexico to the Canadian border.
    The environmentally sensitive Bristol Bay in southwestern Alaska would be protected and no drilling would be allowed under the plan, officials said. But large tracts in the Chukchi Sea and Beaufort Sea in the Arctic Ocean north of Alaska — nearly 130 million acres — would be eligible for exploration and drilling after extensive studies.
    The proposal is to be announced by President Obama and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Wednesday, but administration officials agreed to preview the details on the condition that they not be identified.
    The proposal is intended to reduce dependence on oil imports, generate revenue from the sale of offshore leases and help win political support for comprehensive energy and climate legislation.

    Obama Shifts to Speed Oil and Gas Drilling in U.S.
    By JOHN M. BRODER
    Published: May 14, 2011

    WASHINGTON — President Obama, facing voter anger over high gasoline prices and complaints from Republicans and business leaders that his policies are restricting the development of domestic energy resources, announced Saturday that he was taking several steps to speed oil and gas drilling on public lands and waters.

    It was at least a partial concession to his critics at a time when consumers are paying near-record prices at the gas pump. The Republican-led House passed three bills in the last 10 days that would significantly expand and accelerate oil development in the United States, saying the administration was driving up gas prices and preventing job creation with antidrilling policies.

    Administration officials said the president’s announcement, which included plans for expanded drilling in Alaska and the prospect of new exploration off the Atlantic coast, was intended in part to answer those arguments, signal flexibility and demonstrate his commitment to reducing oil imports by increasing domestic production.
    But in fact the policies announced Saturday would not have an immediate effect on supply or prices, nor would they quickly open any new areas to drilling.
    “These spikes in gas prices are often temporary,” Mr. Obama said, “and while there are no quick fixes to the problem, there are a few steps we should take that make good sense.”

    Obama has flipflopped to adopt many Republican positions :clap2:

    He still has passed Commiecare, Wasted $1 Trillion Dollars in the Stimulus. Cash for Clunkers was a failure and he still wants to redistrubute wealth (Marxism) and raise taxes. He has printed money. etc.

    ...yet, out the other side of his mouth (teleprompter) spews a call for up to $90 billion in taxes on the petroleum industry. This guy didn't fool me the first time.
