Obama Decried, Then Used, Some Bush Drilling Policies


online.wsj.com

Less than four months after President Barack Obama took office, his new administration received a forceful warning about the dangers of offshore oil drilling.

The alarm was rung by a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which found that the government was unprepared for a major spill at sea, relying on an "irrational" environmental analysis of the risks of offshore drilling.

The April 2009 ruling stunned both the administration and the oil industry, and threatened to delay or cancel

Choppy seas have limited the ability of 'skimmers' to collect oil in the Deepwater Horizon spill. Above, TMT Group's converted super tanker 'A Whale' in the Gulf on Sunday.

Obama the globalist elite frontman is talented at doublespeak and doubledo.

He at first eschews the policies done by his frontman predecessor Bush to create the left-right illusion, then he starts replicating his policies when the time is right.

What problem does Obama and Big Oil have with offshore drilling?

Remember, Big Oil owns Obama.

This seems to be a popular theme with Obama. Just about everything he said on the stump turned out to be a lie.

What really gets me, is many people didn't vote for McCain because they feared he would be too much like Bush, yet Obama is far more "Bush" that McCain could have ever hoped to be. Personally, I think they both would have equally hurt the country, but the sad fact of the matter is that Obama is just a continuation of Bush. It wouldn't be so bad if Obama didn't run his campaitgn on the premise of change, yet kept things the exact same.

It's too bad that the American public is still too ignorant to see that change never came, nor was it even attempted. Obama is a fraud.

Remember Obama's platform was "hope & change" and that is exactly what you got. You hoped for a change and got your change but it wasn't exactly the change you had hoped for. He never said what would be changed, when it would be changed, how it would be changed, who would be doing the change or why it would be changed. So your left with your hope. Had enough of your hope and change yet?

He played the americam public like a finely tuned fiddle and danced you all the way to the ballet box. Hope you weren't expecting the change would be for the better. He's Bush on steriods, thats your change.

It didn't matter if he knew the risks of drilling. If the well was a success he wins, if it failed he wins by using it to further his agenda via crisis management. For all those that bought into his hope & change say, bhaaaa bhaaaa bhaaaa

When Obama was campaigning, he was against offshore oil drilling. But in office he changed his tune real quick. This is true.

But it's funny that conservatives are bashing him for it, because they were all for offshore oil drilling when Caribou Barbie was shouting "Drill Baby, Drill".

Kinda being hypocrites aren't they? Wanting something till Obama goes along with it then bashing him for that exact thing?

I believe what the American public, and the rest of the world, fails to see that these guys had/have the same puppet master(s). They do their circus act before elections and then after elections they change - why? Because they are NOT in control - never were and never will be - Simple!

AND, if the little puppets do NOT comply there will be other "grassy knolls" and "Lee Harvey Oswalds" to be discussed on ATC
Answers the questions as to why do they act and say the same things their predecessors did...

I'm far from a fan of President Obama.

This is a perfect example of an outsider surrounding himself with career bureaucrats and lifetime politicians. It doesn't matter if he's a demoncrat or republican, it's the same load of Washington crap.

Obama is nothing special, just the latest President playing politics with every thing he touches.
