Boehner Slams Obama’s Offshore Drilling Expansion

Last night, I predicted that President Obama would take some heat for his decision to expand oil drilling off much of the country’s coastline. But I didn’t think it would be coming from Republicans:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) dismissed the president’s plan as not going far enough in opening up U.S. waters for exploration.

Obama’s decision “continues to defy the will of the American people,” Boehner said in a statement, pointing to the president’s decision to open Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters, while leaving Pacific and many Alaskan waters largely closed to exploration.

This guy ain’t easy to please.

Why did he do this now? Why not while the climate bill was on the Senate floor? Is he trying to get some support on the right for climate legislation preemptively? That is never going to work. If climate legislation passes under Obama, it will be with all of the Republican opposing. I am sure of that. He is just wasting his time and pissing people off on the left.

Bottom line here is Pres.Obama agreed with Pres. Bush, Sarah Palin, Republicans on drill, drill in the name of lowering gas prices, lowering energy costs, create jobs, move us towards energy independence, move towards an energy solution. Okay, might as well give Dick Cheney’s Halliburton the contract since Energy services/drilling is this company’s expertise and they can hire many immediately since this is about also jobs. Whatever happened to the oil from Iraq we stole, can’t we use that oil, stop this drilling? So much for Earth Day, Save our Planet, Global Warming, ride your bike to work, cattle is hurting the environment, no plastic bags,etc…at the end this is about Survival of the Fetus. Who cares about hurting/ killing Marine life, damaging the ocean floor, etc…
