Panderer In Chief

AP headline in today's San Francisco Chronicle, "Obama announces steps to speed US oil production." Oh, give me a break.

Facing continued public unhappiness over gas prices, President Barack Obama is directing his administration to ramp up U.S. oil production by extending existing leases in the Gulf of Mexico and off Alaska's coast and holding more frequent lease sales in a federal reserve in Alaska.

"Drill, baby, drill" replaces the steely-eyed slayer of dreaded terrorists.

    Of course, no one ever says how long it will take for that to translate to more oil pumped, then more products to the consumer. But it makes a good headline, which was likely the whole point anyway.
