Obama is pushing to stop drilling in the Gulf. The Times Picayune is already turning on him for that. Killing jobs in a major recession=Stoopid!

Pressure ON:

 

The president and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's announcement late last week to halt all deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico "at the first safe stopping point" while the Interior Department figures out what regulatory changes are necessary for offshore oil prospecting seemed designed to reassure the nation that drilling would only proceed in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner.

But to those who work in the offshore industry and in the communities at the epicenter of the spiraling disaster from the April 20 Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and oil leak, it smacked of a
lack of understanding
of the role that the oil business plays in the Louisiana economy.

In the 2008 presidential election, no coastal parishes except for Orleans supported Obama; last week's offshore drilling announcement only seemed to make his administration even less popular in the oil-affected parishes.
