If taking advantage of the oil crisis was the plan -
                           It Just Got Totally Blown Out of The Water


Excerpt: Yahoo News, AP NEW ORLEANS A federal judge struck down the Obama administration's six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, saying the government rashly concluded that because one rig failed, the others are in immediate danger, too: Click Here 

Commentary: "Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before." This is the infamous statement, spoken by obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. It appears Obama took the statement to heart and is running with it, in this new crisis.

Many people, like myself, believe that Obama has been taking advantage of the oil crisis in order to stop off-shore drilling. Obama's six-month ban on deep-water oil drilling, which could have been the final nail in our economic crisis, was preceded by his lack of quick action to the oil crisis and his blocking of foreign help with the crisis.

Obama blocked foreign help, being unwilling to grant a permit for them to be in our waters, as the union backed Jones Act requires a waver in such cases: Click Here --Bush waived it to receive foreign help with the Katrina crisis.

Congressman Joe Barton was correct in issuing an apology to BP CEO Tony Hayward for Obama having bullied the company into paying out twenty-billion dollars in a slush fund, to help people who are having financial hardships due to the oil crisis. Until there is a trial, it will not be known how much responsibility our own country bears, considering how poorly Obama has handled the aftermath of the crisis.
