Finally….


I am happy to write a blog post in FAVOR of something Pres. Obama is doing. I don’t think this has happened since Obama kept most of the provisions of the Patriot Act including warrantless wiretapping and rendition, AND when he kept most of Pres. Bush’s National Security team.

Pres. Obama will announce this week the lifting a 20-year ban on drilling off the Virginia coastline. It will open large sections of the eastern Gulf of Mexico and an area off the Virginia coast for oil and natural gas drilling. It will also open up large portions of the Artic Ocean to drilling. Some 130 million acres.

He campaigned against this, but this is one campaign promise I am glad he is breaking.
