Liberals Say Gulf Oil Spill Will Help Them in November

I turned on the TV Sunday morning just in time to hear TIME Magazine’s Joe Klein on the “Chris Matthews Show” claim that Obama’s approval ratings won’t be affected negatively by the Gulf oil spill.

He is “incredibly lucky in his opposition — the oil spill is a great example,” said Klein.  “The Republicans look worse on that than the Democrats do.”

A chuckle was shared between Klein and Matthews.

In hindsight Democrats should be reminded that we are drilling in deep off-shore wells (5,000 feet or more) because berserk environmentalists refuse to let anyone drill into the rocky tundra of ANWR even though over 75% percent of Alaskans support this kind of exploration.

Now how does this situation make Republicans look worse?

In March the president reversed the ban on offshore drilling exploration claiming that he would “be guided not by political ideology but by scientific evidence.”

“That is 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 area’s in the Arctic,” said Obama.

As of today 11 people have died and “scientific evidence” is likely to show more than 9,000 miles of shoreline in ruins, local fishing and the tourism economy devastation and destruction of the regions wildlife. 

Reports are even suggesting today the shores of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and perhaps as far as Miami Florida may see oil slicks on their beaches.

Yes reports have yet to prove that drilling in the Arctic could be hazardous. Let’s get cracking on studying those “sensitive” areas Mr. President.
