Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Looking forward to normalization of relationship with Cuba. Throw the Castro brothers over the rail. Keep Guantanamo and explore the Cuban territorial waters for natural resources.
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!!!
The reason he needs to do this by executive action is that he is paying back the Sierra Club and other environmental wack jobs.
The environmentalist can't protests with signs and sit in in an area as remote and inaccessible a this area is.
It is not as pristine as it is made out to be.
It is in the middle of freakin no where..
It is not like your going to go there and hike.
Expanding the Refuge puts it off limits to exploration for oil in an area with know reserves. How does that help our energy independence?
WELL! That comes as a complete surprise.
So your saying it is "The rich and wealthy" that have the wherewithal to go after oil?
I always wondered why I never saw the poor and destitute out drilling for oil and providing for America's energy demands.
BeRight - While you're placing a checkmark for scoring beside the "tree huggers" column, be sure to post one also for Vladimir Putin and Islamic Jihadists. They don't want America to be energy independent anymore than anti-fossil fuels Obama does.
You really have to wonder how's side that guy IS on.

Putting an oil reserve permanently off limits is stupid.
Score one for the tree huggers. Minus one for cheap oil.

"Obama effort sparks ire in Alaska" (by AP)
The President has just declared war on Alaska.
What every happened to States Rights?
Obama now wants to shut down Alaska Oil Production.
On the other hand he preaches energy independence.
Then he talks about a long term energy plan.
I am not sure how locking up an energy source and putting it off limits forever and is good for the country?
Looks like he just wants to put up obstacles to energy independence in order to just get his way.
bills of substance - how do we know? they were never debated.
and by the way, do you know the difference between health insurance and health care?
And Bush spent the money on two wars.
Oblabla policy wasted every penny
Harry bottled up the Senate.
No bills made it to Oblabla.
He had not decisions to make.

I say it is a perfect time to raise gasoline taxes mod.
Isn't that where the highway money is supposed to come from anyway?
60% of federal gas taxes are used for highway and bridge construction, right? The remaining 40% goes to earmarked programs right? Why not use it all for highway and bridges?
That would be a good start or does that make too much sense?
Pass a bill that enriches the highway fund, and that will happen beright.These are negotiating points,mdoncha know?
This I am not making up: We should change the name of Tuesday night's speech from the State of the Union to FREE S H I T Night.
There will be a whole list of free stuff that Oblabla wants to give away using tax money.
Why not fix roads and bridges first?
I made that up.
