Are you suggesting that President Obama has supported offshore drilling in the US more enthusiastically than any "other [American] president has"?

Because, if that is your implication, it is just downright ludicrous...

I believe that "what happened in the Gulf last year" has merely provided a pretext for the left to oppose drilling in the US, thereby acceleration the timetable for the exhaustion of worldwide oil resoruces.

And that President Obama, post-BP oil spill, is merely genuflecting to his left-wing base, which he needs to fire up for his 2012 re-election bid...
