I Admit It: Obama Is Focused Like A Laser On Jobs

Focused on killing them, that is

President Obama’s United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing.

…The Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP) recently estimated that drilling in the Utica shale, which is affected by the suspension of the mineral lease auctions, would produce up 204,500 jobs by 2015.

“The President’s plan is to simply say ‘no’ to new energy production,” House Natural Resources Committee chairman Doc Hastings, R-Wash, said to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar during a hearing pertaining to hydraulic fracturing. “It’s a plan that is sending American jobs overseas, forfeiting new revenue, and denying access to American energy that would lessen our dependence on hostile Middle Eastern oil.”

Hey, how are all those good paying Green Jobs Obama has has created in the Gulf Region working out?

    Who puts more money into his campaign coffers?

    Oil and gas companies and their non-unionised workers?

    Or public-sector unions and investors in ‘green’ boondoggles?

    He’s certainly a ‘green’ president. He’s found ways to root it out of people’s billfolds like no one else.

    That 204,500 figure in three years or so seems highly inflated. I just hope we don’t fall prey to the same disease that afflicts the left. Wild figure fabrications come back to haunt you and destroys credibility for projects.

    The Feds also are giving hundreds of millions of dollars to start olive orchards in Morocco to create
    jobs there,which will cripple the
    California oilve industry.
    What’s going on here? Doesn’t the government even care about us?No,they’re internationalists who placate the Americans only to keep in
    office.And then it’s “screw you” .We only need your votes and children-To fight our wars.
