Lift the political moratorium. We all know he put it in place with no forethought, just a knee-jerk reaction at damage control to save his own nasty butt and try and convince people that he was actually doing something.


YouTube - WVUE: Gov. Jindal urges drilling moratorium to be lifted

Just as the lady said - he's kicking their butts.

I think we know what this administration is doing. What better way to get rid of evil oil than to implement an unjustified moratorium that will destroy their economy and lose tens of thousands of jobs.

This has been the plan all along, to try and FORCE America off oil, whether it's a good idea or not.

Brazil could benefit from the BP Gulf of Mexico spill as a U.S. moratorium on offshore drilling boosts available rigs for the country's deep
water oil exploration program.

Even as an ecological catastrophe makes the future of U.S. offshore drilling less certain, Brazil is plowing ahead with a $220 billion five-year plan to tap oil fields even deeper than BP's (BP.L) ill-fated Gulf well, which is still leaking crude.

With an estimated 35 rigs idled in the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil is already receiving inquiries from companies looking to
move their rigs here, where vast discoveries in recent years may soon turn the country into a major crude exporter.
Well, at least another country will benefit from the disastrous decisions by this piece of work.

The Brazil thing is scary. First an alliance with Iran, then a step up in oil exploration and (eventually) production. Neither of those scenarios bode well for the United States from a geopolitical standpoint.

These type of bans are not new, in fact they were put in place in the past after previous oil spills as well, most notably the 79 Spill in the Gulf and the Exxon-Valdez spill.

The people on the coast are wiped out, he wipes out the workers on the other oil rigs and now go's after BP dividends, American stockholders who depend on that for support in their retirement. He must be peeing his pants over the thrill of destroying so many more Americans life lines.

So you want the government to pay the costs?

BP is stuck between a rock and a hard place. If they can afford this whole mess but cutting the stockholders is going to put them in bankrupcy. If people around the world can't get their dividends, they will bail on the company which will bankrupt them. If we go after them to soon, we could be holding the bag for just about everything. Very touchy situation.

I predict that BP will cut capacity at other wells and refineries, thus sending supply tumbling, thus sending crude prices up, thus creating higher gas prices, thus a bankrolling nice fund for the escrow account Obama is demanding.

This will only last for a short period until demand slows down due to higher prices, so the wallet-squeeze could get very fierce for a while in order to maximize the revenue window of opportunity.

Make no mistake about it: The American People all over the country will likely feel the pinch of this crisis finanically. When supply and demand principles take hold (higher costs at the pump), all fingers may well point back to this Administration.

I'd like to see obama stop using this crisis for political gain, stop his blame-game, stop his demagoguery, stop trying to use the oil spill to further his radical left-wing agenda of getting rid of evil oil, stop costing jobs and income to those here and oversees with his rhetoric toward BP and finally, pull his head out of his a**.

Do you have any idea whatsoever what that will do to the economy?
