Yes, Mr. President we owe our success to others... in the energy industry

This past week the President made what seemed like an outlandish claim at the time, that those folks that are successful in this country owe their success to others. Mr. President you are right in more ways than you know.

When it comes right down to it we all owe whatever living we are able to scratch out of this miserable economy to the energy industry.

You see Mr. President, your teleprompter, which you love so much, would not function without power which, by in large, is produced by the same fossil fuels that you hate. Your presidential limousine will not go anywhere without the fuel that is extracted and refined by the oil and gas industry. Many of the roads, including new ones that you claim to be "shovel ready," are made up of asphalt; a by-product of oil refining. The heavy equipment used to build those roads runs on diesel fuel refined somewhere in America; more than likely in Texas; a state you will likely not carry.

You see Mr. President, without the hard work of the energy industry you would not have a country to run. Think of it, Mr. President, the hard working coal miner, whom you are trying to put out of work, and the hard working roughneck on the oil rigs off shore that you are trying to shut down, are making a difference for all of us.

The big business of crude oil is not ours but Saudi Arabia and Opec by government edict. Talk about sending jobs abroad. The AMERICAN crude oil and energy industries are fighting the government to try to stay in business and trying to get market share. Why is it so important not to have an AMERICAN energy industry and to supply terrorist with large sums of money to do their dastardly deeds?
