Wait, What?

Barack Obama wants to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.  I voted for Obama; I drive a hybrid.  Therefore I should put a "drill, baby, drill" sticker on my Prius.

UPDATE:  I'm not surprised.

Cuellar applauds President’s plan to increase domestic oil production

Washington, DC – Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) today released the following statement after President Obama released a proposal to open vast offshore coastal regions to oil drilling. The five-year plan will allow, for the first time, oil and natural gas drilling off the East Coast of the United States and parts of the Gulf of Mexico pending a reversal of a Congressional moratorium. The initiative signals a major shift in the future of the nation’s domestic energy policy.

“I applaud President Obama for taking a critical first-step in expanding our domestic oil production by opening up offshore areas to oil and natural gas drilling. I have been a long-time advocate for an ‘all of the above’ approach to energy production, and I have repeatedly called for a positive shift in our nation’s domestic energy policy that includes offshore coastal drilling. I look forward to working with the President to put this proposal into practice and moving towards greater energy independence.”
