Obama Bows To GOP Demands, Expands Domestic Oil And Gas Drilling: Unable to face criticisms that he has "blocked...

Although it breaks my heart to see Mr. Obama 'play Switzerland' in the face of polarizing issues like energy policy; break promises of more robust environmental policy that convinced so many to vote for him in the first place; and refuse to make good on claims that he supports investment in clean energy ecomony, there is a silver lining... If we just hurry up and drill, we'll get to the end of oil (there's only a finite amount you know) even quicker. The faster it's gone, the faster we'll be able to identify our petroleum addiction for what it is--a destructive, all consuming dependency. Maybe when it's gone, we'll finally realize what we've known for years--renewable energy is the only way to the future. But by then it may be too late, and we'll long for the days when $5 gas was our most pressing problem.
