Judge Blocks Obama’s Attempt To Destroy Jobs… I Mean His Offshore Drilling Moratorium

obamafacepalmPoor Obama.  He must hate it when the law and common sense stop him in his attempts to ruin the nation.

Don’t worry, they announced an immediate appeal.  Obama is quoted as saying “Who does this judge think he is?  I AM THE ONE!  I will do my best to ignore this ruling and ruin as many jobs as possible.  FORE!”.  Ok, I lied about that last part.  Well, probably didn’t lie about the golfing bit…

It’s nice to see that the Judiciary (at least this one member of the Judiciary) is not completely beholden to The One and his progressive schemes, and actually understands the rule of law over thuggery.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A federal judge in New Orleans has blocked a six-month moratorium on new deepwater drilling projects that was imposed in response to the massive Gulf oil spill.

Several companies that ferry people and supplies and provide other services to offshore drilling rigs had asked U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman in New Orleans to overturn the moratorium.

President Barack Obama’s administration has halted the approval of any new permits for deepwater drilling and suspended drilling at 33 exploratory wells in the Gulf.

Feldman says in his ruling that the Interior Department failed to provide adequate reasoning for the moratorium. He says it seems to assume that because one rig failed, all companies and rigs doing deepwater drilling pose an imminent danger.
