But that's a complete "about face" from his earlier position.

You would think there is an election looming? :roll:

It's easy to open up the leases-- money to the gov't-- but then when it comes to drilling permits-- now that is a different story :roll:

paperwork? or praise a political move by the president?

paperwork is just a matter of filling in the blanks with facts.. easy enough..

praising the president for something that should be a normal function of government, that has been delayed for well over two years.. ya,. I have a bit of a problem doing that.. it would be awful insincere if I did praise him for doing nothing..

It reminds me of the car ad on TV that says all "credit apps" accepted. Nothing said about being approved.

I'd like to praise the president for constantly making his far left suppoters bite their little forked tongues. He's done more to drive them away from chat groups such as this and reveal their hyprocrisy than anything I could have ever imagined:

Gitmo, habeus corpus, indefinite detention, ordered execution of an American citizen without a trial, invading a sovreign nation's airspace, drone attacks killing innocent civilians...............and the list goes on and on and on.

Obama, the gift that keeps on giving.

:lol:

Hey Jingo this couldn't have anything to do with the three bills the Republicans are passing through the House on a Truly Bipartisanship vote not the Obama bipartisanship way of one Republican supporting a Dem bill.

Would not look good to have the Republicans being the only ones interested in doing something about the price of gas with an election on the horizon now would it. :wink:

HR 1231, requires the Interior Department to offer leases in every area, including California, with significant oil deposits three miles off the coast.

The measure, “Reversing President Obama's Offshore Moratorium Act,” is intended to double offshore oil production by 2027. It is scheduled for House action Wednesday.

The North Coast is part of a section of California coast that holds an estimated 2.3 billion barrels of oil, about 2.4 percent of the nation's total untapped oil.

Developing California's offshore oil deposits will generate jobs, government revenues and reduce the state's dependence on imported oil,



Passing third bill, House says 'drill baby, drill'

WASHINGTON --

The Republican-controlled House has easily passed the last of three bills to expedite and expand oil and gas drilling.

In a 243-179 vote Thursday, the House passed a measure that would open up areas off the West and East coasts, Alaska and the eastern Gulf of Mexico to drilling. The Obama administration pulled back on leasing in some of those spots last year to further evaluate the environmental consequences. It never considered drilling in the Pacific.

The bill directs the Interior Department to select lease areas based on how much oil and gas they contain.

The measure joins two others passed earlier by the House to speed up drilling and leasing.

None is likely to pass the Senate. All are opposed by the White House.


Republican claims drilling bill vote prompted oil price tumble

“Here we are in the Senate today, and I would just mention to the Senate that our bill yesterday to expedite lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico, those very leases that have been delayed or canceled by the administration in the past year, The fact that we're willing to expedite those lease sales had a profound effect on those people who like to speculate and hedge in the oil market,”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House sharply criticized a bill passed by the House of Representatives on Thursday that would expand offshore drilling as part of a broader Republican effort to stimulate domestic production in the face of rising gasoline costs.

The White House also said the Interior Department would hold new lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico by mid 2012.

hold sales by mid 2012... and cancel them by Dec. 2012... :?

Seems Jingo doesn't believe any Dems would vote against Obama. What makes me think there will be more than a few Dems voting against him for the next year and a half in hopes of saving their own butts in the next election. :wink:
