Skip to comments.Obama Says Moratorium Doesn’t Really Hurt Anybody; Louisiana Seethes With Indignation
Posted on 09/16/2010 7:52:41 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obamas moratorium on deepwater offshore oil drilling has been quietly fading from the front pages, as the effects and news coverage of the Gulf oil spill have tapered off. One could almost argue that the spill and the moratorium arent even national news stories anymore; theyre of purely local interest now.
So perhaps its on one level understandable that the administration, personified in a report entitled Inter-Agency Economic Report Estimating the Economic Effects of the Deepwater Drilling Moratorium on the Gulf Coast Economy, is touting the fact that since the moratorium went into place in late May, only 8,000-12,000 jobs have been lost.
This is a win, the administration says, because other predictions - like the one by the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil & Gas Association which said 33,000 jobs would be lost as a result of the moratorium, forecast far more dismal results. The administrations own halfheartedly-assembled numbers which projected job losses numbering 23,000 or so were worse, for that matter.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“And now these people have the unmitigated gall to claim that economically the moratorium is no big deal because its only killed 8,000-12,000 jobs.”
and those are only the iceberg above the surface...... obamination is non-civilized human, aka muslim, and hates real Americans who need work!!!
There is absolutely no logical rationale for Obama’s moratorium other than to harm the USofA ... but hey, that’s what Obama and his Merry Marxists are all about.
This Dumbo-eared prick couldn’t care less about America or American jobs. When will this country stop going into the back seat and giving up its best to the liberals/socialists? When will we return to the greatness of this nation and that of its founders? A slick talking Chicago thug and his cronies have hijacked this nation.
Wow...how compassionate and caring "The One" is...
Indeed. The is a stranger in the White House.
A moratorium on vacations may help this fella understand.
Drilling engineers and oil workers have been replaced by folk on welfare sweeping up tarballs on the beach.
Sure there are jobs. What kind of jobs? Instead of productive work, we have more taxpayer dollars going to clean up a mess for which Obama is largely responsible.
it only hurts no one because it hurts all Americans and zero doesn’t care about us.
’ really harm anyone? HEs right, in his eyes. We can continue our dependency an buy oil from his highness in saudiland, and not develop our own resources. But then again, Obama favors Mexico and Brazil drilling at the American taxpayers expense. Useless POS.
We can talk about oil dependency, trade balances, national security, employment, industry health health and wealth of the American economy.......
But as the pres sez, it doesn’t really harm anyone.
He knows best (whats not good for America)!
It’s like the Death by 1000 Cuts.
Energy built and propelled this nation to greatness.
Coal, then oil, then gas then nuclear. ( Wind and wood were there all along) These create the platform for everything new.
Kill them, and you kill our pre-eminence.
We need a government that gets it.
Drill, baby drill.
Some weeks ago James Carville was highly critical of Obama. I bet now he is hotter than Tabasco.
The cold arrogance of these people is absolutely chilling. If I had the chance, I would slash the government with a scythe like the Angel of Death. This administration is at war with the private sector and they need to be brought down.
Simple fix: NEUTER HIM BY VOTING OUT HIS HENCHMEN IN CONGRESS THIS TIME then SEND HIM PACKING IN 2012.
Of course, if he can’t come up with that birth certificate, he’s probably not going to run.
The list of people who OWN parts of mac daddy must be almost endless.
This is what happens to people who sell their souls to become something that will boost their egos, then the payment become due and when they are used up nobody will give them the time of day and their so called friends will tear them to shreds.
Then prosecute Obama for fraud and keep the prosecutions going to get Pelosi and others who perpetuated this total fake.
None dare call it CONSPIRACY because that is obviously what it is.
I've been saying this since the Carter era.
This is the most incredibly incompetent bunch I could ever imagine!
