Expanding the Refuge puts it off limits to exploration for oil in an area with know reserves. How does that help our energy independence?
WELL! That comes as a complete surprise.
So your saying it is "The rich and wealthy" that have the wherewithal to go after oil?
I always wondered why I never saw the poor and destitute out drilling for oil and providing for America's energy demands.
Typical whiny republican crappola ! What a bunch of idiots ! All he is doing is expanding the refuge , he's not shutting down any oil field ! The rich and wealthy have been trying for years to get at the reserves in that refuge and they are still at it !
BeRight - While you're placing a checkmark for scoring beside the "tree huggers" column, be sure to post one also for Vladimir Putin and Islamic Jihadists. They don't want America to be energy independent anymore than anti-fossil fuels Obama does.
You really have to wonder how's side that guy IS on.
USA Today page one.
Putting an oil reserve permanently off limits is stupid.
Score one for the tree huggers. Minus one for cheap oil.
Speculate all you want but I still say its probably cheaper right now to buy it than to produce it !

"Obama effort sparks ire in Alaska" (by AP)
Please show me where you got that nasty little nugget ! I'd say that with the Saudis dumping oil on the market that they cant produce it as cheap as they can buy it !
The President has just declared war on Alaska.
What every happened to States Rights?
Obama now wants to shut down Alaska Oil Production.
On the other hand he preaches energy independence.
Then he talks about a long term energy plan.
I am not sure how locking up an energy source and putting it off limits forever and is good for the country?
Looks like he just wants to put up obstacles to energy independence in order to just get his way.
Do you really think they needed to debate the repeal of obamacare over 50 times ?
bills of substance - how do we know? they were never debated.
Thousands dead and x10 maimed on a slate of lies !That right there should make you proud to be a republidud !
And bewrite there were never any bills of substance that came from the house ! They were never looking to do ANYTHING other than to obstruct and impede !
Yeah Bush spent it alright ! But its the way he chose to get it started ! Lying to our government and misleading the nation ! But don't believe me , just look at what one of the conspirators had to say about it ! google Colin Powell and Bushs lie !
and by the way, do you know the difference between health insurance and health care?
And Bush spent the money on two wars.
Oblabla policy wasted every penny
Harry bottled up the Senate.
No bills made it to Oblabla.
He had not decisions to make.
No #1 Obamas legacy is that despite the republican strategy of total obstruction he was able to help 40 million qualify for health insurance ! No#2 He made decisions that kept our economy from another great depression brought on by Dubya's disastrous economic policies ! No #3 He has ended or will end the 2 wars that his predecessor started on lies and deception ! Need more ? Not bad considering he had NO HELP AT ALL FROM THE RIGHT !
