Rachel Maddow- The more spills change_ the more they stay the same

Gulf oil spill is a re-run of an almost identical spill in the Gulf in 1979. The same solutions that didn't work 31 years ago have been applied to this spill, with the same failures. In 1979 the leak was eventually stopped by drilling 2 relief wells.

Rachel Maddow the other night made a really critical point that needs to be stated over and over again.

There is no 'domestic oil' vs. 'foreign oil' supply. All the oil in the world goes to the same world market where it is purchased by all countries. This really eliminates the 'Drill Baby Drill' argument that the solution to eliminating our dependence on foreign oil lies off our shores or in ANWAR. We just do not need to drill in the Gulf. It's not that critical. Immediate labor concerns and economic impact totally understood.

And for good reason, too.
