Saying the opposite of what you are doing (again)

Comrade Obama

Misdirection.

Concerning the Obama Administration’s offshore drilling announcement:

When you cut through the hoopla, here is what Obama’s announcement added up to:

  • Canceled five lease sales off the Alaska coast that were planned over the next 2 years. One of the areas is estimated to hold up to 77 billion barrels of oil, or more than 3 times US reserves.
  • A study of the southern Atlantic OCS, with the findings due back next year….no leasing.
  • Delayed a planned lease sale off Virginia until at least 2012.
