Who'd have thought it! Bush lifts offshore drilling ban

"President George W Bush lifts an executive ban on oil drilling in most US coastal waters, and urges Congress to follow suit."
(Via BBC News.)

So, apart from the fact that there's HUGE amounts of un-tested areas of the continental USA that the oil companies own and haven't done anything with and the fact that new sites off-shore would take up to 10 years to complete (really helpful with today's gas prices! not!), what else is new with this special interest President?
