Another Fed Judge Calls Obama "Lawless"

Gee. At some point in time, people might understand that Obozo is just another crook--but with Statist tendencies and a nice office.

Today, the Obama Administration's de facto drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico was once again struck down in Federal Court. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman granted a preliminary injunction requiring that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) act within 30 days on five pending permit applications from Ensco...


"Perhaps it is reasonable for permit applicants to wait more than two weeks in a necessarily more closely regulated environment. Delays of four months and more in the permitting process, however, are unreasonable, unacceptable and unjustified by the evidence before the court...The plaintiff's operations in the Gulf of Mexico are threatened with endless disability. It has already sent a rig to French Guiana; its contracts and skilled labor necessarily will follow...Beginning to process permit applications will restore normalcy to the Gulf region and repair the public's faith in the administrative process."

I'll take 2012 for a $Trillion, Alex.
