There is a Charleston, South Carolina, which is a port city doing trade from the Atlantic Ocean (not the Gulf of Mexico).

I agree with the idea that our ports must be economically competitive. But, if the supertankers are bringing in oil, it may not be worthwhile to deepen ports in areas that do not refine oil.

Of course, a better idea would be for us to drill for our own cheap, abundant oil, instead of paying other countries to drill for it AND transport it here (the transportation part adds a possibility of the ship sinking with oil leaking into the waters, a peril that drilling on our own land does not involve). As other energy technologies are developed, oil may lose much of its value. Better to tap it and use it or export it before this happens.

Perhaps he's going to create a new gulf ?

Isn't Charleston in Virginia and land locked - or have you more than one Charleston ?

. . . but that doesn't stop him from telling people about it, in error.

"The Panama is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. If we donít deepen our ports all along the Gulf ó places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida ó if we donít do that, those ships are going to go someplace else."

So, President Obama wants to have our ports along the Gulf deepened. But, then he mentions, as examples, Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville--NONE of which are ports along the Gulf.

Poor Obama. He hasn't mastered sixth-grade geography yet.
