Headline of the Day

“Obama Announces New Oil Drilling for EPA to Block,” Doug Powers quips:

One of President Obama’s 2012 slogans should be “Drill, maybe, drill.” Obama knows that merely a call for drilling isn’t actually drilling, so publicly he can sound as drill-happy as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood (as he did early last year and is starting to again). As long as the EPA is there to block or revoke permits, Obama can, with a wink and a nudge, keep the “green” in his corner.

Don’t worry though — we’ll drill for almost as much new oil as there is a moat complete fence around the border.
