greenteadrinker can't believe Obama's decision to expand off-shore drilling:

My heart is broken. I didn't think he'd ever go this route; against us. But he did.

Tigerlily78 is more optimistic:

If you look close, it seems he has simply said "We'll think about it." All proposed drilling sites would still have to undergo environmental risk assessments. The main problem I see it is if the EPA goes limp again under the pressure of a future administration and they return to rubberstamping everything regardless of risk.
