Looks like the CIC has finally said he would back offshore drilling, too bad it's not for the US. So much for the Hypocrite in Chief saying he wants to reduce our dependency on foreign oil.

This week President Obama eagerly announced his support for new offshore drilling.
But for Brazil.
Yes, you read that right. During a visit to Brazil, President Obama applauded Brazil’s decision to drill offshore for oil and gas, the very action that he and his administration have worked tirelessly to ban and restrict in the United States. The President also backed up his support with a promise of U.S. federal financing to help fund Brazil's drilling operations that will create thousands of new jobs in Brazil.
President Obama said that he wants the United States to be one of Brazil's "best customers" when Brazil's new oil and gas supplies come online.
Why does President Obama want to be one of Brazil's best customers of oil and gas when there are millions of Americans who would be eager to be the best customers of new supplies of oil and gas produced by workers in Louisiana, Alaska, and Virginia?
Meanwhile, gasoline and diesel prices in the Untied States are skyrocketing. Rigs are leaving the Gulf of Mexico and signing contracts with other countries. President Obama's drilling moratorium last summer and the subsequent refusal to issue new drilling permits caused the loss of at least 20,000 jobs. And domestic production of oil will drop by 220,000 barrles per day in 2011.
Will you help us send a message to Obama?
Please forward this email to your friends and ask them to sign the "Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less." petition.

It is part of the socialist agenda and redistribution of wealth through the elimination of the middle class. He wants sky rocketing gas prices, never ending debt, everyone dependent on the government for everything, etc... By keeping domestic production non existent, we are totally dependent on oil imports and subject to volatile pricing. This further enhances his cap and trade bill objectives, forces people to move close to their job (if they have one) which may not be in the best part of town, forces all the taxes and associated costs such as those related to CARB upon us.

When gas prices are low and the economy is functioning properly, people are much less dependent on the government which in no way adheres to the socialist priniciples O was educated with at an early age. His goal is the destruction of capitalism and the traditional American way of life which has sustained us since OUR Country was founded.

Plus, I have read that Soros has interests in Brazilian drilling?
True or not, this is one area that Zombie is correct on. The financiers and bankers will make their money hand over fist at the expense of American workers and consumers.

This is old news. I forgot the exact amount of millions he gave a Brazilian Oil Co to develop off shore drilling. Soros just happens to own 51% of said company. Oh Ya. He was Husain's biggest campaign contributor as well. Funny how it is not good to drill off our shores but ok else where. AZZ HOLE. OH ya. When this was first published it was announced that China has arranged to buy all the oil they produce.

You mean he is pulling a "bush" a la 2008. Damn socialists can't even come up with their own ideas.
so you're saying that with Obama supporting and helping to finance Brazilians to do offshore drilling is Bush's fault?

you're tight EF, this is news from awhile ago but it's back due to the recent trip to Brazil.

O is just scouting for the best place to spend his exile in....setting up the money for later.

Why don't you look at the full 8 years he was in office and especially at the $1.95 price when he left office and the clown posse took over? The spike in oil during Bush was from speculators manipulating the market price which is criminal if you ask me. The spike now if from O's direction that he his taking the Country, lack of domestic production, unrest in the middle east which O is now fully supporting and contributing to by sending OUR men and women into harms way when we should not even be involved. O wants $9 a gallon gas just like in Europe to help force his agenda further down our throats.

Pretty sure Exxon has enough money to aquire anything required.
There is no incentive for off shore drilling contractors to leave a contract elsewhere to return to the Gulf, regardless of client.
If Exxon, or any other operator, makes it worth the while for a contractor to return, they would have to buy out an existing contract where the rigs are, plus pay ALL transportation and set up costs. WHO do you think that cost is passed on to???

The rigs will not leave current operations to return to the gulf until they are finished where they are at.

It's not Bush's fault anymore than it is the current President's fault. They are each contributing but the point is that there are NUMEROUS factors at play here.

These people can't see that Rod. They are dead set in thinking it is all Obama's fault. It's amazing how people (both parties have been guilty of it) seem to think the President has some super power and can control everything that goes on when they're in office, and blame whoever the President is at the time for everything bad that happens in our country.

did Obama say or did he not say that he will support Brazil for them to be drilling in the Gulf and a promise to help finance it?
This has nothing to do with Bush or any other President, this has everything to do with what Obama said.
