. . . jobs died.
I can only imagine the uproar if Bush or any other Republican president had pulled this stunt.
From the blog post:
“Obama knew his moratorium would cost at least 23,000 jobs but went ahead with it anyway. After all, what’s another 23,000 jobs when you’ve lost several million already?
In June it was reported that Team Obama fudged a report to support their drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico. A group of oil drilling experts claimed that the Obama Administration misrepresented their views in order to put a hold on drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.”
Didn’t help our energy independence much either. And he thinks he has a message problem and not an agenda problem.
