Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Congressional Democrats: Drilling for oil destroys jobs, or something

To the morons who keep putting these boobs back in Congress: Why do you hate the rest of America?  From CNS News:

Appearing at a press conference with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on job creation, Rep. Andrews said, “I agree with my colleague and friend that drilling for oil off the coast is a problem, not a solution, but let’s get back to the main point here that if the Republicans really believe that was really a job-creating idea, why don’t they put it on the floor?”

Here’s a typical left-wing canard right here:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of the House Budget Committee, said there would be no “immediate” reduction of gas prices from more drilling.

Using that “logic” (and when it comes to liberals, I use that term loosely), why bother eating healthy or exercising, since you’re not going to see the “immediate” reduction in weight? Pass the extra-meat pizza, dude!  Besides, it’s just flat-out not true.  Remember when Bush lifted the moratorium on offshore drilling in 2008?  Just the promise of lifting the moratorium resulted in the precipitous drop in oil futures prices.

Had these imbeciles not gotten their way during the Clinton years, we would have oil flowing from ANWR by now and available in gas stations and refineries across America. But we were told in 1995 that “it will take at least 10 years before we get the oil out”. Sixteen years and another $3/gallon later, that oil is still in the ground, thanks to the treehuggers.

Exit question: If drilling for oil destroys jobs, does this mean that Brazil’s unemployment is about to skyrocket?

  1. Like the two elected officials are experts on anything remotely connected with energy? I don’t think so. There main interest is continuing to be able to show how idiotic their reasoning truly is, by pandering to the eco-whackos and getting re-elected. Both of these idiots mentioned in the article should be put out to pasture in the nearest swamp.
    I just don’t get the left and their outright and apparent hate for the people of this nation. When will the majority of the voters in this country see them for what they are, America haters. Sorta like the obummer.

  3. Yeah, creating hundred of oil production jobs on off sore oil rigs…uh….destroys…er…jobs…yeah, that’s it!
    All those extra “roughnecks” (term used on “Armageddon” for those who worked on the oil rigs)…all those extra roughnecks with jobs would be DEVASTATING to the economy!Goodness knows, the economy is MUCH stronger if those guys would be drawing unemployment!
    Good grief…that’s just plain stupid!
