It isn’t exactly “Drill, Baby, Drill” but Obama’s decision to allow some offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico is a step in the right direction. He is also allowing some drilling off Alaska’s shoreline, while shutting off drilling in other areas of Alaska.
This was the second good move by Obama in the last few days. His surprise visit to Afghanistan was not just good, it was great. The troops needed the morale boost and Obama was right to firmly plant the flag on our offensive to root out terrorist in the region.
The President deserves our praise when he does the right thing, and in these two cases, he did.
