Offshore Oil Still Years Away?

From those optimists at Associated Press.

A quarter-century ban on offshore exploration expires in this coming week, but don’t expect to see a chain of drilling platforms from the beaches anytime soon.

It will take a couple of years, at least, before any oil or natural gas leases are issued, years more before any oil is found and perhaps a decade before any of it begins to flow to refineries.

And what if Congress, after completing a bill Saturday that removes the freeze, changes its mind next year and again puts some of the coastal waters off-limits?

Who wins the Nov. 4 presidential election is the biggest factor.

It’s the government’s oil and gas. The Interior Department, directed by the White House, will have wide discretion over where leases will be made available and how soon.

If McCain is President:

“We will drill offshore and we will drill them now,” Republican nominee John McCain proclaimed at the GOP convention. He probably would direct the department to accelerate its leasing schedule to include the newly opened regions.

If Obama is President:

Democratic Barack Obama is certain to take a more measured approach if elected. While Obama has said he favors limited expansion into areas that have been off-limits, he has given no specifics, and insists it should be done only as part of a broader agenda that promotes alternative energy and conservation.

The oil isn’t 10 years away as they like to say. I’ve heard it said that oil can be flowing in as little as 3-4 years. It’s no time to be a wimp. Drill It Now! Drop the regulations, issue the permits, and let’s get on with it. We need to get out of this mess now, and fix it for good. With the current economic trouble, this could save us in two ways, more jobs and less dependence on countries that would like to think they can bloody our nose while we are weak. We can still develop alternative power while we drill our own oil. In my opinion, everything needs to be fast tracked like we did during WW2. And that also means a President that has determination and a mind of his own. Not one that waits to see what Soros and the daily kos wants him to do.


No Media Bias? Part 2

I’m sorry, I just can’t help myself. I have to add this video as a bonus. See what the world has to look forward to if Obama is elected.

How Low Can Obama Go?

Barry just can’t get it right. Well, it’s not Barry himself, he doesn’t have an original thought in his head, but his handlers have gone off the deep end and are about to go under, dragging Barry with them. They’ll resurface, Barry won’t. He’ll join Algore, Skerry and Silky Pony at the bottom of the pool.  BDS was driving them at the start, PDS has driven them over the edge.

Wondering No More [Jonah Goldberg]

Yep. The day after 9/11, as part of its “get tough” makeover,  the Obama campaign is mocking John McCain for not using a computer, without caring why he doesn’t use a computer. From the AP story about the computer illiterate ad:

“Our economy wouldn’t survive without the Internet, and cyber-security continues to represent one our most serious national security threats,” [Obama spokesman Dan] Pfeiffer said. “It’s extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief doesn’t know how to send an e-mail.”

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by “extraordinary.” The reason he doesn’t send email is that he can’t use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):

McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan – Ted Williams is his hero – but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.

In a similar vein I guess it’s an outrage that the blind governor of New York David Patterson doesn’t know how to drive a car. After all, transportation issues are pretty important. How dare he serve as governor while being ignorant of what it’s like to navigate New York’s highways.


Mark Steyn has a question.

Re: Wondering no more [Mark Steyn]

Jonah, why didn’t the Obama guys and the AP figure that out? It’s extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief knows how to send an e-mail …but not how to do a five-minute Google search.


Michelle Malkin has more on the Gaffe Twins

Pirate’s Cove has more on McCain’s email use

!UPDATE! NewsBusters has a lot more.

It appears that McCain was actually “an internet pioneer”.
