White House Used Fraud to Suppress Gulf Drilling

The Obamination Administration was willing to stoop to new depths to keep its “boot on the neck” of the oil industry that is so crucial to the economy of Gulf states and America in general:

The Interior Department’s inspector general says the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of the administration’s six-month ban on new drilling.

The inspector general says the editing changes resulted “in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.” But it hadn’t been. The scientists were only asked to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.

…Louisiana Rep. Bill Cassidy, a Republican, said in a statement that the investigation proved “that the blanket drilling moratorium was driven by a politics and not by science.”

“Candidate Obama promised that he would be guided by science, not ideology,” Cassidy said. Cassidy said if that were true thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity would have been preserved on the Gulf coast.

Obama also said he would make energy prices skyrocket. At least that’s one campaign promise he’s trying to live up to.
