Sarah Palin blames oil leak on environmentalists

This is a message to extreme “environmentalists” who hypocritically protest domestic energy production offshore and onshore. There is nothing “clean and green” about your efforts. Look, here’s the deal: when you lock up our land, you outsource jobs and opportunity away from America and into foreign countries that are making us beholden to them. Some of these countries don’t like America. Some of these countries don’t care for planet earth like we do – as evidenced by our stricter environmental standards.With your nonsensical efforts to lock up safer drilling areas, all you’re doing is outsourcing energy development, which makes us more controlled by foreign countries, less safe, and less prosperous on a dirtier planet. Your hypocrisy is showing. You’re not preventing environmental hazards; you’re outsourcing them and making drilling more dangerous.Extreme deep water drilling is not the preferred choice to meet our country’s energy needs, but your protests and lawsuits and lies about onshore and shallow water drilling have locked up safer areas. It’s catching up with you. The tragic, unprecedented deep water Gulf oil spill proves it.
Extreme Greenies: see now why we push"drill,baby,drill"of known reserves&promising finds in safe onshore places like ANWR? Now do you get it?
The last thing oil companies want is an oil glut or a gasoline glut, because that drives down prices. So, Mr. Hooker, if we opened up ANWR, where it would be cheaper and safer to drill, I think most oil companies would move away from off-shore drilling.Dale Clark
old stupid harry reed made a comment several months ago, saying ( Oil makes us sick and coal makes us sick ) apparently he don't understand that without Oil and coal most of us would be DEAD within two years. What an Idiot! right along with most extreme inviromentalist.Leslie Vande Berg Rosson
If we had drilled in shallower waters, say a mile out vs 5 miles out, we could have easily gotten divers down there to fix this current catastropheMark Adams
Excellent post, Gov.Palin!Joel Luther
Obama and the democrats need to close they mouth, BECAUSE THEY BREATH STINKS!!.............. Let me make my record clear, i am not a racist, im not racist againsed blacks,, i grew up with a who bunch of black friends in San Bernardino California.. And i also grew up with indian friends. But the only change that the people really got, was the first ... See Moreblack man in office, the first black president. And when he says "change", he means, you will only have some loose change in your pocket after he is done taxing us to death, and stealing our money!!.. Obama, i knew that was the change you meant, and that's why i didn't vote for you!! I voted for Sarah Palin, and i will vote for Sarah is she runs for President.. I love Sarah because she comes from ourside of the corrupt policical circle, and she ha's different solutions and ideas to offer us, than do any other politicians have offered us.. Obama is not a commander and chief.. OBAMA IS A LIAR AND THIEF!!......Lee Nichols
