Helping Jeb II. Just eleven months ago, we opined in this space that President George W. Bush sacrificed principles for politics when he reduced the area included in OCS Sale 181 offshore Florida from 5.9 million acres to only 1.5 million acres. Now, less than a year later, he’s done it again.
In case you have forgotten the details about OCS Sale 181, Dubya apparently decided to help his brother Jeb Bush remain Florida’s governor by placating the environmental interests there. The Bush administration deleted a large section relatively close to shore (half of which is no closer than blocks already open to exploration), and also cut a huge area that’s at least 115 mi from Panama City and 213 mi from Tampa Bay.
