Senate Democrats on Wednesday rejected a Republican bill to expand and speed up offshore drilling.

So was Obama just kidding when he proposed expanding our energy production on Saturday? Note that he also opposed the Republican bill. Which is it?

  • I think if we vigorously invest and develop every form of energy both theoretically possible and currently available we will still have trouble meeting increasing demand . i’m tired of people who use massive amounts of electricity and fuel (aka everyone) telling us we need to stop developing the resources that provide it . we have got to do everything we can as americans to achieve energy independence . our leaders need to wake up or get out of the way
