Are we coming to the end of a presidency, or are we being led?

Something about the sudden popularity of offshore oil drilling strikes me as peculiar. On the one hand, you could say that offshore drilling has its drawbacks, and was held back as a very-last resort. On the other, it could also be stated that George W. Bush is a Texas oilman, who knows a thing or two about how to market petrochemicals.

Here comes the rope-a-dope, folks. As a man whose entire family fortune is based primarily in the oil business, Dubya damned well knows that offshore drilling produces results. There’s like an entire subculture that has sprung up around people who work on offshore rigs. It’s not like offshore drilling is unheard-of, so the situation seems to be a little contrived.
