If no effort is made to guarantee our fair share of royalties, I have warned the federal government that we will be forced to block the August sale of off-shore oil and gas leases. Industry leaders understand our predicament. It's time to play hardball, as I believe that's the only game Washington understands.

Bring it on. Extortion is always good for one's image and creates massive sympathy for the extortionist.

Idiot.
