I believe in giving credit where it's due.
Today the president issued a permit to one company to start drilling one well in the Gulf. It's a start, a small one, but a start nevertheless.
I know we won't see this oil for a few years, but it is a beginning. Maybe this will give some psychological support for the price of oil futures. Hopefully the president will issue more permits in the next few days.
It might be good for a few votes in 2012.
