Jobs and oil-supply potential are shut down

While the Obama administration was taking a victory lap last week after the 5-4 Supreme Court decision to uphold the president’s signature legislative accomplishment, Obamacare, the Interior Department was using the media black hole to release a much-awaited five-year plan for offshore drilling. That plan reinstitutes a 30-year moratorium on offshore energy exploration that will keep our most promising resources locked away until long after President Obama begins plans for his presidential library. Given the timing, it is clear that the self-described “all of the above” energy president didn’t want the American people to discover that he was denying access to nearly 98 percent of America’s vast energy potential on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

Your post should be revised - "This guy" should say "These people". He is not alone.

From the article...

More than 3 1/2 years into the Obama regime, nearly 86 billion barrels of undiscovered oil on the Outer Continental Shelf remain off-limits to Americans. Alaska alone has about 24 billion barrels of oil in unleased federal waters. The Commonwealth of Virginia - where Mr. Obama has reversed policies that would have allowed offshore development - is home to 130 million barrels of offshore oil and 1.14 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. But thanks to the president, Virginians will have to wait at least another five years before they can begin creating the jobs that will unlock their offshore resources.

Not in the article, but Alaska has 132 trillion cubic feet of natural gas waiting to be tapped.

Plenty of resources available that could allow jobs to be had, and the national debt could be decreased. Obama and crew obviously not interested.

Also from the article...

But facts are stubborn things, and the Obama administration cannot run forever from its abysmal energy record. In the past three years, the government has collected more than 250 times less revenue from offshore lease sales than it did during the last year of the George W. Bush administration - down from $9.48 billion in 2008 to a paltry $36 million last year. Meanwhile, oil production on federal lands dropped 13 percent last year, and the number of annual leases is down more than 50 percent from the Clinton era.

This is not by accident and I hope more and more people realize this.

Obama helps whom he wants to help.

It's an "all of the above" energy strategy (I don't think he has ANY strategy on energy at all except to not allow Americans to consume any).......except for coal, oil, or nuclear.

Give him credit for keeping ONE campaign promise.....to increase your bills!
