President Bush just took that excuse away from today. The presidential moratorium has been lifted on drilling.
WASHINGTON - In another push to deal with soaring gas prices, President Bush on Monday will lift an executive ban on offshore drilling that his stood since his father was president. But the move, by itself, will do nothing unless Congress acts as well.
Now the only thing standing in the way of more oil production right here in the US are the Democrats in Congress.
There are no more excuses.
