After a court overturned the deepwater drilling moratorium, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he'll issue an order within days to effectively reinstate the ban, while the White House promises a court appeal. Offshore drillers remain understandably nervous about resuming operations.

    As a commentator pointed out yesterday, no less than nine other countries are drilling in the Gulf and beyond the jurisdiction of any dictatorial bans from our increasingly Hugo-Chavez-like White House. But, sure, let's just shut down all drilling for U.S. companies and make sure we reduce our own supplies further and increase our dependence on all those friendly countries, like Venezuela, China and Saudi Arabia, who have our best interests at heart, always.

     

    Great idea!

    China doesn't export oil. They are net importers.

    What a crack-up. After being ordered to pay a speeding ticket, I'm going to reinstate the fact I wasn't speeding and not pay.

     

    After Obama went on and on during elections how abuse of power was a big problem in the WH, here we are again.

     

    Note: I'm not a Bush, nor Obama supporter. I am just pointing to the hypocrisy of all politics in general.

    Government agency after agency just going around suing each other.

     

    I suppose the Obama administration has created some jobs.

     

    Lawyers and bureaucrats.

     

    I just don't see how it benefits the average American in any way.
