“States will be empowered to establish processes to oversee the development and production of all forms of energy on federal lands within their borders, excluding only lands specially designated off-limits”

This means that national parks and national forests, not to mention state parks and state forests, are open for business to oil companies to drill in the park. Romney apparently believes that those companies who write large checks to his campaign trump all of us who visit and use these wild spaces. Mitt Romney is no Teddy Roosevelt and if his idea of fixing the US means gutting our natural treasures, with all due respect, Mitt Romney can take his energy policy and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.
