    If Obama believes that granting one permit since the gulf spill is going to be enough to cover his culpability in this issue, he is mistaken.

    He and his administration should be held accountable for their direct actions, which has been an ongoing attack against domestic drilling. It began with his initial moratorium, and his campaign continues.

    Republicans should start relentlessly equating the Obama administration with $5.00 gas prices.

    Obama one would think would get tired of shooting himself in the foot so often.

    Just think if he hadn't a "permitoriam" on oil drilling in the Gulf, that would be 23,000 (minimum) jobs he could have claimed he "created". Instead, he was happy to see them joining the unemployment lines.

    As soon as he did that, the damage was done. Most companies simply moved their operations to other countries.

    These few straggling companies now have to sit and watch the administration try and stall them out of business as well.

    I haven't heard about how this has impacted the economy along the gulf states. I guess they are in flyover country, so the media won't cover this issue.

    Republicans should seize the opportunity to point out that this administration is actively trying to have the US rely on foreign oil.

    yes well, the msm won't make a big deal out of the fact that obama , oops Salazar and his dept. have been in held in contempt, that hes only given I think I read 37 shallow water permits and as of last week ONE permit for deep water drilling and hes now appealing, adding more uncertainty and stringing this out.

    he said we wanted higher fossil fuel prices, and hes doing his level best to make it so. Won't see that in the msm either, you have to hit the you tube archives. booyah!

    I understand your concern, provacateur, but the federal judge is on our side. The criminal enterprise known as the "Obama administration" decided to ignore an order by a federal judge to open the Gulf for oil drilling. Obama is in volation of a federal judge orders.

    The solution to our long term problem is not a little more oil for a little bit of time.

    As to the actual solutions... This administration has been the most proactive in decades, maybe ever - To the chagrin of the minority party.

    Curb consumption and seek alternatives, of course. I find it unfortunate and sad that so many Republicans/conservatives/righties/whatever demonize any efforts thereof and/or laugh them off as a joke.

    Obama's contempt for fossil fuels is well documented. He doesn't care if America has to pay more, he wants to bankrupt them.

    You might not have seen this move by Republicans last week:
