Maybe We Should Drill?

(nablopomo day 8)

Why are we still dependent on Arab oil? According to the USGS (hat tip Hezbos), we have vast potential oil reserves of our own--possibly billions of barrels worth!  Our economy is in shambles, jobs are scarce and more are being depleted weekly--companies are still laying people off, closing positions and curtailing spending.

Wouldn't it make sense to begin drilling right here in the United States? An expanded oil industry would create many more jobs and boost the economy.  At the same time, we could be exploring alternative energy sources and increasing research and development.  And last but certainly not least, we wouldn't be filling OPEC coffers with money which could be fueling terrorists.

Will: Obama's moratorium on deep-water drilling seems to have been a knee-jerk reaction without thoughtful analysis. Or, as you said, there is more to his agenda.
