The only people that are going for all of this are the Obamabot libtard marxist-sociopaths.
I have been watching this development for seveal days now and the story seems to have drifted off into the Obama lalaland. Right off the bat, Obama doesn't have the constitutional ability to do what he said he was going to do making this all another Obama take on gross stupidity.
At the New York Times, via Memeorandum: Obama to Open Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling for First Time
Where is this Constitutional for a "rezident" to make such an offer? There isn't one. This is all smoke and mirrors and for those that do not know the USC it all sounds so spectacular.
The Obama administration is proposing to open vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, officials said Tuesday. [...]
Oh. Geewiz. The offshore is already open, the US Congress be damned. No where in the USC is drilling for oil banned. It is a State issue but don't bother listening to me. Read the USC. You'll figure it all out.

Dan Riehl: Obama, Drill Here, Eventually, Perhaps
[...] Obama is not the Environmental lobby that props him and his progressive buddies up. But this sure plays well for now. It reminds me of Stupak's executive order, more than anything else. Obama wants disastrous cap and trade policy, to shut down the coal industry - and one day, maybe, we get to drill for oil off our own coast, eventually, perhaps. [...]
The big deal is this. Should the off-shore drilling start back up, it will be years before it does and the funds will be government run, government paid and government pay out of oil at a certain price. Smoke and mirrors, no matter what the libtards say.
