President-Elect Obama has already announced a major step back in his emerging Presidency. Obama stated that he will reverse President Bush's order to allow oil drilling on public lands.
Unfortunately, with our dependency on foreign oil actually increasing, we cannot afford to stop drilling. Perhaps McCain was right about expanded drilling.... And oil prices are actually falling. This is our chance to drive in the knife to OPEC and drive oil under $50.
With Iran's nuclear program proceeding and their belligerency scathing, why are we not drilling?
