Conservatives don't be happy, Liberals don't be unhappy---No drilling will take place--see may gurarantee...

Conservatives stop celebrating and Liberals stop fretting---There will be NO drilling!!!  This proposal will require congressional approval AND if you ACTUALLY read the Pres. remarks the only relevent part is what I have in bold below:
"That's why my administration will consider potential areas for development in the mid and south Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, while studying and protecting sensitive areas in the Arctic."
WILL CONSIDER means just that...A very non-committal commitment...Environmental impact studies, ad nauseum, will have to be done this will NOT happen any time soon, if at all...This is just a shewrd political tactic to calm the waters after the Healtcare  Bill controversy.  Call me cynical, but if I was a political advisor this is exactly what I would do--Genius!  Swing back to the middle.  I will be bold myself...If ONE site in these areas has an oil platform in it within 5 years from now, I will buy ANYONE who leaves a comment on this post TWO FREE tanks of gasoline...I am that confident... :)
