With the impending oil spill, why is the "Drill Baby Dril" crowd silent?

"Drill here, drill now", right? I'm glad Obama took a much more measured approach.

Update:

With the impending oil spill reaching coast....

Happy now?

    Jindal's not silent -- he's begging for federal aid!

    And that's on top of asking for federal aid for tornado victims. Of course, as soon as he gets his aid he'll go back to calling for tax cuts and smaller government. According to http://www.taxfoundation.org/research/show/62.html Louisiana gets $1.45 in federal spending for each $1 paid in taxes; maybe if Louisiana paid their own way then taxes could be cut.

    From: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM...

    Governor Bobby Jindal had requested additional resources from the US government "following reports that part of the oil sheen broke off and will now reach Louisiana's coast earlier than previously expected," a statement said.

    "Our top priority is to protect our citizens and the environment. These resources are critical to mitigating the impact of the oil spill on our coast," Jindal said.

    ------------------

    Obama was very smart: he balanced limited new drilling with new automobile fuel economy standards. That's how we wean ourselves off of foreign oil.

    One robin does not a spring make and one drilling accident will not sour the demand for oil. Drilling will go on if we don't drill another country will.Perhaps if it did not take 10 years of paper work to start to build a nuclear power plant we would not have the demand for oil.

    Not the first time it has happened, and it won't be the last. We need the oil and there may be accidents and/or consequences of that need.

    Better than to be at the mercy of others for it. ESPECIALLY the type of countries that have it.

    Any lib that would rather be at the mercy of an oil nation, is short sighted - this ocean, that ocean, this land, that land being ruined - and should STOP driving IMMEDIATELY.

    It's a waste of breath with Obama. Obama would rather see America enslaved to the ME than allow us to use our own resources.

    I'm glad Obama is doing nothing about energy. Makes him easier to vote out in 2012.

    Have we suddenly stopped needing energy?

    Well then, Obama and all his supporters continue to look like idiots.
