The Last Laugh: Offshore Drilling

Offshore drilling is a no-no for liberals and environmentalists. So I guess they were a little mad about it when their hero President Obama announced plans to start offshore drilling this past week.

"Given our energy needs, in order to sustain economic growth and produce jobs and keep our businesses competitive, we're going to need to harness traditional sources of fuel even as we ramp up production of new sources of renewable, homegrown energy," Obama said. "So today we're announcing the expansion of offshore oil and gas exploration--but in ways that balance the need to harness domestic energy resources and the need to protect America's natural resources."

Now I personally don't think it will happen. But I do find it funny how the same people that just cheered him for health care reform are now blasting him.
