Louisiana Official to Obama: Stop moratorium on drilling

Parish official to Obama: Stop moratorium on drilling


A Louisiana official pleaded with far left President Obama to lift his moratorium on new oil drilling and exploration. With the unemployment rate at 9.9% President Obama set up the moratorium after the BP oil spill in the Gulf.

A Gulf Coast official is pleading with President Barack Obama to scrap the moratorium on new oil drilling and exploration as the investigation of the massive oil spill continues, saying the economic impact to her Louisiana parish would be too much to bear.

Charlotte Randolph, president of LaFourche Parish, said she spoke to Obama in person during his visit to the oil-stricken region Friday.

“I expressed to the president that we are dying because of the oil spill, but if he allows this suspension to happen it will kill us,” she told reporters Saturday, noting that her parish has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
“First I’m hearing from fisherman who are dying because of the oil spill,” she said. “Now I’m hearing from the oil and gas industry and all of those associated services that they will be put out of business.”

Obama’s tour of the oil damage along the Gulf Coast came a day after he announced steps to limit new oil drilling and exploration during the oil spill. The president said he is “fully engaged” and ultimately responsible for what he called a catastrophe.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This is so sad and an outrage that any citizen has to plead with any president to make this country survive and do well. And to drlll when we should be drilling like crazy all over the place.

But asking this communists idiot for anything is a waste of time. To ask this idiot Administration combined with the Communists Party (formally the Democratic Party) is useless since their objective is to reduce Americans to third world status in mud huts.

If drilling on land were allowed, none of this would have happened in the first place.

Obama and his administration are nothing other than one big Death Panel.

obama and his communist cronies love this disaster. They have this chance to, "not waste a crisis". This is their opportunity to destroy the oil industry.

Tom, I think they do too, and your so right about the reason as well.

Mark, exactly. Here we are with obama saying no to the USA but there will be other countries going gung ho drilling all they want out there.

I wish we could open all the drilling fields in our country across our land and enviros stopping it.
