His announcement followed passage in the Republican-controlled House of three bills — including two this week — that would expand and speed up offshore oil and gas drilling. Republicans say the bills are aimed at easing gasoline costs, but they also acknowledge that won't be immediate.

The White House had announced its opposition to all three bills, which are unlikely to pass the Democratic-controlled Senate, saying the measures would undercut safety reviews and open environmentally sensitive areas to new drilling.

don't worry the Obama admistration is going to stop impeding/manipulating lease sales in time to have a bunch of insignificant lease sales in mid - 2012

just in time for the election...

and as easily as it did in the latest round of "opening up areas", it can and will cancel the lease sales by Dec. 2012
