Now, with a seven-year offshore drilling ban in effect off of both coasts, on Alaska’s continental shelf and in much of the Gulf of Mexico — and a de facto moratorium covering the rest —
Obama tells the Brazilians: “We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers.”
Is this what you want to hear from Obama?

You have to put it altogether.
Oil companies do not own those oil drilling platforms, they rent them.
petrobras needed oil platforms, therefore Obama bans drilling in the gulf. The platforms can't set there not working, they are losing money. Petrobras takes up the rent on all those non working platforms. Obama then lifts the ban, but does not give permits for all the other oil companies except Petrobras.
And to think they called Nixon a crook. Obama makes Nixon look pale in comparison.
