Oil Workers Protest Obama Visit

Oil Workers Protest Obama Visit

FOX News

CUSHING, Okla. -- The President is scheduled to speak in Payne County this Thursday morning. It may be rural Oklahoma, but when it comes to pipelines, it's the Capitol. The President is expected to talk about energy, though many in that industry are not impressed.

They are even planning to protest his visit, calling it a political ploy more than a genuine interest.

Mike Cantrell with the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance says, "For the last three years he's been anti-fossil fuels."

Mickey Thompson, an energy industry expert and political analyst, says, "He calls our industry an industry of the past and they'd like us to go away."

Into the heart of the Oil Patch. No, obama is not admired in Oklahoma. My neighbors to the north will not give him a rousing reception. obama will have to fly in his own cheering section.
