To the editor:
I recently discovered that Cuba and China are in cahoots to start drilling for oil off the Florida coast. Meanwhile, President Obama has nixed the Keystone pipeline, at least until the election is over (surprised?) and has given Brazil half a billion for oil exploration and drilling.
Oil exploration and some drilling on U.S. soil and waters has been halted for the most part. The U.S. has, though, dumped billions into “green” companies, at least a few of which have gone belly up — with Solyndra being the headliner. Gas is about $3.39 average/gallon now. Obama claims he wants foreign oil independence and that he wants to get the U.S. job market fired up. This administration’s policies continue to remain a mystery. What is Obama up to?
