Kerry stated he will drill ANWR! "we‘re going to be drilling all over the United States."
MSNBC ^ | James Hoffa on HardBall

Posted on 02/20/2004 7:44:21 AM PST by SirFishalot

MATTHEWS: How about ANWR? You guys want to see ANWR because you want to see guys working in your business. I guess there‘s a lot of Teamsters jobs up there lined up and organized, if you could put a pipeline up to the Alaska wilderness. He is against that.

HOFFA: Well, we talked about that.

He says, look, I am against ANWR, but I am going to put that pipeline in and we‘re going to drill like never before.

(CROSSTALK)

MATTHEWS: What, are they going to run water through it?

(CROSSTALK)

HOFFA: ... more jobs than the ANWR would have ever created.

MATTHEWS: What are they going to run through the pipeline?

HOFFA: And that‘s the position he‘s taking.

(CROSSTALK)

MATTHEWS: But he is against drilling up there. What are they going to run through the pipeline?

HOFFA: Well, they are going to drill all over, according to him. And he says, we‘re going to be drilling all over the United States. And he says that is going to create more jobs.

(CROSSTALK)

(LAUGHTER)

MATTHEWS: You got that guy rolling.

(CROSSTALK)

MATTHEWS: What position was he in when he made all these promises?

(CROSSTALK)

(LAUGHTER)

MATTHEWS: It just seems amazing that he has turned around on NAFTA, turned around on WTO, turned around on ANWR, anything to get the Teamsters.

HOFFA: Oh.

MATTHEWS: Who is going to be boss if he gets in there, you or him?

HOFFA: Well, I think that

He flops more than a just caught fish. Saying things and doing things are two different things.

Sounds like Kerry has been doing some serious "drilling" on his own.

ANWAR is not the United States - it's an evnornmentally sensitive area, and those are controlled by the UN.

As long as he does not drill too many dry holes, he will be fine.

Voted against it before. Now for it since Hoffa and his bunch have endorsed him. Hoffa was working with Bush on this. Now Hoffa turns his back on Bush since Kerry will do it now. What did Hoffa say, 700,000 jobs if they drill ANWR? Bush thinks he can trust these people? Duh.

First.. learn to spell. Second. Have you been to the Alaska Northern Wildlife Arctic Refuge? I have. The American Public has been totally sucked in to propaganda about this ENVIRONMENTALLY sensitive area. Do your homework.

When Kerry says "Wer're going to be drilling all over the United States." he is obviously referring to his plans for himself, Teddy and the White House interns.

"No, I voted to threaten drilling on the Coastal Plain of ANWR. You see I voted for a process, not for drilling"
