    Can’t wait for the Democrats to start chiming in with “no!” to new energy ideas.

    Ring!

    What exactly are his new energy ideas? His whole program is about off-shore drilling and coal, with a token rhetorical sop to alternative energy sources. How short-sighted can you be?

  • AFF says:

    Drilling for oil off Virginia’s coast is a “new energy” idea?.
    .
    Please.

  • Steve Vaughan says:

    Nice beach until the oil slick rolls in. Then so long Virginia Beach tourism. Better be a lot of oil out there.

    Ignorance squared.

  • Stevie, So you’re okay with Obama doing it off of other shores?
    Get a clue, genius. It’s 2009…not 1970. There are ways to harvest the oil without the slop of yesteryear. Unless you only want to offer empty rhetoric. [which you do].
    Likewise, in 2009 we have thin membranes that can collect solar energy off of a standing seam roof. All you have to do is peel and stick. Ain’t teechnology grand? Alternative solar and wind are highly viable these days.
    And face it .. If Kaine even stayed in the state long enough to pay attention, he hasn’t proposed growth in the alternatives. I’m looking for a new approach, and Bob’s bringing it!!

  • AFF…. better than paying our enemies for the oil that we don’t already own.

    BM: The technology has improved. But it doesn’t have to be BETTER, it needs to be PERFECT, before we risk drilling off Virginia Beach. Otherwise, we’re putting a known asset, the tourism industry, at risk for a potential asset — oil and natural gas off the coast — that we don’t know the extent of yet. I’m not opposed to drilling off the coast, if we balance the potential rewards with the risks. To suggest drilling as some sort of panacea for our energy woes is just dishonest. Oh, and if there are significant resources out there, I dont’ agree with Bob’s plan about what to do with the proceeds. I’d rather we adopted Alaska’s model, that those resources belong to the citizens of Virginia and we all should share in the windfall, if there were to be one, which is highly unlikely.
