Default Oilbama creates more jobs!

In Egypt. More proof Oilbama keeps milking the oil spill so he can destroy offshore oil drilling in U.S. waters and the American oil industry.

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc is pulling one of its deepwater rigs out of the Gulf of Mexico, in the first such move resulting from uncertainties surrounding a U.S. moratorium on deepwater drilling.

Diamond said on Friday the Ocean Endeavor rig, which had been contracted to earn about $290,000 per day from Devon Energy Corp in the Gulf of Mexico, will move to Egypt under a new deal with Burullus Gas Co running until June 30, 2011, when the Devon contract would have ended.

"We are actively seeking international opportunities to keep our rigs fully employed," said Larry Dickerson, chief executive of Houston-based Diamond. "We greatly regret the loss of U.S. jobs that will result from this rig relocation."

With his total disregard for the decisions from two judges that have overturned his moratorium on drilling and his insane orders for NASA to help make Muslims feel good about themselves, Oilbama leaves no doubt that he hates America and the American people. Supporting Oilbama is un-American.

You win some, you lose some. I guess the Egyptians will see this as good news, likely having got the rig cheap; so that's a positive

I thought this was going to be something about unemployment in DC being at an all time low.

Yeah, right..."destroying the American oil industry" is part of the agenda.

Where do you boys get this stuff? From Orly Taitz?

Have you heard that it's raining oil in the Gulf? F***ing raining oil?? Even if that's not entirely true, you cannot deny the severity of the environmental impact. I'm not expecting a polite response from you here, but a suspension on deep water drilling is utterly necessary in order to prevent this type of disaster in the future. This country, this world, is nothing if not for the ecosystems we subside in and exploit.

Surely a cessation of deep water drilling would be required in order to prevent such a disaster. Merely suspending it, the implication being that it must re-start, means that it's likely to happen again.


Thank you for reading
