Obama approves new Gulf oil well 
 Sure wish we could get some change...

 Link

 Excerpt:
The Minerals Management Service granted a new drilling permit sought by Bandon Oil and Gas for a site 
about 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana and 115 feet below the oceanís surface. Itís south of Rockefeller 
State Wildlife Refuge and Game Preserve, far to the west of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that triggered the BP spill.

Obama last week extended a moratorium on wells in deep water like the BP one that blew out a mile below the surface 
in April and is gushing millions of gallons of oil. But at the same time, the president quietly allowed a three-week-old ban
on drilling in shallow water to expire.

"I'm outraged," said Kieran Suckling, executive director for the Tucson, Ariz.-based Center for Biological Diversity. 
"How is it that shallow water drilling suddenly became safe again?"

Bandon Oil and Gas first sought the permit in April shortly after the Deepwater Horizon exploded and sank. 
The permit was approved Wednesday morning, according to MMS records.
 

I'm sure they're going to say, "Drilling in 115 feet is much safer than drilling a mile down,"
but the ruination of the Gulf proves we shouldn't be drilling anywhere on the water. 

Why isn't Obama using this as an excuse to move America forward?
Don't you think solar and wind look real good to people these days?


Why is Obama approving more disaster wells?
