The only thing idiotic is the notion that we should stop drilling. Here's an idea...why not go take the sheet off your bed, fix it to a pole on top of your car and see how far you get.

"The only thing idiotic is the notion that we should stop drilling."

You sound like Sarah Palin, George W. Bush and the Republicans. The Republican politicians' assertion that we should keep drilling offshore just like before is dumb de dumb dumb dumb.

First, deepwater offshore drilling was never thought through by corporations and was inadequately regulated. Look at this disaster in the Gulf. Just look at this mess. The assertion that we should just keep drilling deepwater offshore unregulated is dumb.

Second, even if we were to suck the maximum amount of oil out of deepwater drilling off US shores, it would have minimal impact on the price of oil or our energy needs.

Third, instead of continuing the head in the sand Bush energy policy, America should support this President in getting an energy bill passed.

Drill baby drill = dumb baby dumb, and more disasters like this one.

>>> You sound like Sarah Palin, George W. Bush and the Republicans.

Thank you.

>>> The Republican politicians' assertion that we should keep drilling offshore just like before is dumb de dumb dumb dumb.

You mean, to harvest the single, most important natural resource to the world's economy? Why that sounds so silly.

>>> First, deepwater offshore drilling was never thought through by corporations and was inadequately regulated.

Blame Clinton...he's the one who incentivized the deep water Gulf for oil exploration, and it was the Federal government that has approved rig designs, drilling plans and oversaw regulation.

>>> Look at this disaster in the Gulf. Just look at this mess. The assertion that we should just keep drilling deepwater offshore unregulated is dumb.

Right...drilling unregulated would be dumb...which is why we don't drill unregulated.

>>> Second, even if we were to suck the maximum amount of oil out of deepwater drilling off US shores, it would have minimal impact on the price of oil or our energy needs.

Only if you consider 27% of our oil and 14% of our natural gas "minimal."

>>> Third, instead of continuing the head in the sand Bush energy policy, America should support this President in getting an energy bill passed.

Right...a wind turbine in every yard and a prius in every garage.

>>> Drill baby drill = dumb baby dumb, and more disasters like this one

Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1499!

Gotta hand it to Obama...they don't know what caused the disaster, but they're going to rush out new regulations to see that it "doesn't happen again."

I'd like to see the folks on the left put their money where their mouths are and run on outlawing oil production. If oil drilling is so bad, you should be calling for the shut down of all oil drilling, rigs, production, and ban importing any oil. Go ahead, if that's what you really are for.


Personally, I think the left couldn't care less about drilling being dangerous, they just think they gain some political points

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."

ITA!


If you're liberal, live the green weenie lifestyle... But an EV, install your dirty solar panels, put up your wind mills...


There's nothing stopping them from doing those things other than the fact they want someone else to payfor them.

And yet, in my very liberal area, driving up the road there's nary a windmill, solar panel or horse & buggy to be seen.

Isn't that amazing?? but then you drive to the conservative areas, and where do the libs want all these wind turbines and solar panels...pretty hypocritical. i think a few turbines on top of the empire state building or the space needle would
