Obama to Unveil Offshore Oil Drilling Plans
AP

In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, the president is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines, and is allowing an expansion in Alaska's Cook Inlet to go forward.

WASHINGTON -- In a reversal of a long-standing ban on most offshore drilling, President Barack Obama is allowing oil drilling 50 miles off Virginia's shorelines. At the same time, he is rejecting some new drilling sites that had been planned in Alaska.

Please explain how you made the jump from allowing offshore drilling to not being a socialist? What does one have to do with the other?

If he was a real socialist the Govt would exploit those fields and all profits would go to the people.

How did you make the jump from Democrat to Socialist?

<span style="color: #FF0000">I didn't make that jump. Not all Democrats are Socialists. Obama is a socialist who also happens to be a Democrat.

I am pretty sure Obama is a socialist among other things.

I have also heard some of his promises. Very good on making promises and I think it is his strongest suit.

I will believe the drilling when drilling starts.
It is much too soon to attribute accolades or whatever is being said regarding our president. I am patient. Lets see the act.

I actually think he is just posturing trying to get some Republicans behind him to vote for some other bad program like cap and tax.

The bottom line is that it allows Obama to say he did something without actually doing anything.

Until congress lifts it's ban ... this means nothing.

It will, however, allow him to pimp the naive on the campaign trail.

Ah, what a nice turn of phrase, "pimp the naive".

This was what I had in mind when I said, lets see the oil before providing accolades.

Hmmmmmm.

George Bush was excoriated for suggesting drilling as he obviously was bought out by big oil.

Could it be Obama has received and offer he cant refuse from big oil???

After all the oil didn't change.

I doubt Obama will be treated like Bush was in this matter.
