Another ass-kicking: 5th Circuit rejects White House drilling ban appeal

Just in: The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has just denied the White House request for a stay on U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman’s order striking down the Obama blanket deepwater drilling ban.

Ass. Kicked. Again:

A U.S. appeals court on Thursday rejected the Obama administration’s request to put on hold a ruling that lifted a temporary moratorium on deepwater drilling in the wake of the BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The ruling is a setback for the White House which had sought to suspend deepwater drilling of new wells for six months while it investigated the cause of the April 20 explosion aboard the Transocean Ltd. rig and adopt new stricter safety regulations.

…The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, based in New Orleans, ruled about 90 minutes after hearing arguments over the administration’s request to put on hold a lower court ruling that lifted the six-month moratorium.

Interior Department Secretary and fraud doctor Ken Salazar is expected to finally “revise’ the moratorium, but it’s reportedly too late for some companies that are already moving rigs and workers overseas for projects.

Heckuva job, Team Obama. Heckuva job.
