You really have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to energy. It's not even worth debating it with you, but you are an easy target so I'll continue to entertain myself I suppose.
Obama is 'pro-drilling' only when it is politically advantageous for him to be 'pro-drilling' (ie. price at the pump relief). You're incredibly naive if you think that Obama really wants to see more drilling long termand see the oil and gas industry continue to grow (a product of more drilling).
I won't even comment on your last sentence about pissing into the ocean. I guess you meant that we can't make much of an impact by continuing to drill in the U.S.?
