In her National Review article, “Stall Baby Stall,” Gov. Palin analyzed Obama’s promise to open off-shore drilling and concluded along with many of us that his promise worthless. “Behind the rhetoric lie new drilling bans and leasing delays; soon to follow are burdensome new environmental regulations. Instead of “drill, baby, drill,” the more you look into this the more you realize it’s “stall, baby, stall,” she wrote (Palin, 2010, ¶1).
Gov. Palin wrote that while DC bureaucrats “consider” drilling in the Arctic and off our Gulf Coasts, countries like Russia, China, and Venezuela are already doing it (Palin, 2010, ¶2). The new ban on drilling in parts of Alaska will only lead to lengthy delays in bringing the resources to market, which are not good for either energy independence or national security (Palin, 2010, ¶3). “The administration’s sudden interest in offshore drilling is little more than political posturing designed to gain support for job-killing energy legislation soon to come down the pike.” (Palin, 2010, ¶4).
The last sentence pertaining to the administrations sudden interest in offshore drilling is spot on. Obama cares nothing about energy independence or national security. His administration is committed to the cap and tax scam, and other environmental tomfoolery. Carbon credits is a scam business that benefits people like Al Gore very nicely on the backs of the American people.
Any interest the Obama administration expresses in offshore drilling or in Gov. Palin’s AGIA project is smoke and mirrors covering an ulterior nefarious motive.
