Remove the Gulf Oil Drilling Moratorium!

Louisianans seem to be bipartisan, Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, Democrat James Carville, and now Lt. Governor Angelle in condemning the President’s deepwater drilling moratorium, which is killing the Gulf Coast economy. See a portion of Governor Jindal's speech at the same rally here.

“Enough is enough, and it’s time to quit punishing American workers to achieve some unrealistic political agenda…”

--- Democrat Lt. Gov. Scott Angelle, speaking before 11,000 in the Cajundome in Lafayette, La., 7/21/10

Hat tip goes to KatyinIndy who posted a link on Twitter to the following outstanding video of Lt. Governor Angelle’s impassioned no-holds-barred speech last Wednesday at the Rally for Economic Survival in Lafayette, Louisiana. It is refreshingly honest and inspiring! By the way, Vladimir on the RedState blog said this about the Lt. Governor, "Angelle is a true Endangered Species: a conservative, pro-business, pro-life Democrat." I didn't know there was such a thing, I though they were extinct with the retirement of Sen. Zell Miller!

Here are a couple of other meaningful quotes from Angelle's speech:

"While we, too, support the use of renewable alternative energy, let's keep the conversation real. America is not yet ready to get all of its fuel fronm the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees!"

"We believe our Creator requires us to manage ALL of our resources to improve the lives of all Americans."

    The way things are going. It's very clear that politicians are more interested in their interest rather than the interest of the common man who is losing out due to direct and indirect job losses due to the moratorium. If the oil drillers move out of GOM then it will do a permanent damage to US economy and will result in much more than minimum 23000 jobs lossed currently.

    The way things are moving, it's very clear now that the politicians are more interested in their own interests rather than common man's. Any sane person would not continue with the oil drilling moratorium now, considering the number of job losses direct and indirect, permanent impact of the moratorium if the oil drilling moves out of GOM. Guys keep the nations interest above you, enough safety data is available now, things to do are well established and stop this small thing developing into another bog economical disaster. Removed oil drilling moratorium for once and ASAP.
