I notice that President Obama proposes more oil drilling. As you might expect almost nobody is happy about this. Environmentalists are against it, of course – no surprise there – but the Republicans, who wanted to drill are against the President’s plan. Because it’s the president’s plan they must oppose it, of course! It’s their way or no way.
I do agree that there’s too much delay built into the plan but overall it’s a reasonable attempt to meet in the middle. I am so extremely tired of the school playground nature of politics. Come on… let’s behave like grown-ups for a change and work this one out.
