Now that Bush and McCain have started turning up the heat on drilling for all, the latest excuse of the "let America suffer" Demos is that the sight of platforms will somehow make people ill.
What a bunch of yahoo nonsense these buttholes yadda yadda about.
First, tourism creates low wage jobs. The Demos have yelled for years that the Bush economy has not created "good" jobs, and here they are saying they want more.
Hypocrite is between Democrat and low wage in the dictionary.
Wait.... those low economy jobs are taken by inter cultural sojourners, aka illegal aliens... Okay, now the Democrats position makes sense. They want the jobs for their base voters.
Secondly, the drilling will be so far off the coast that the only tourist ever seeing them will be the drunk business types who are attending a sales meeting and are fishing from a "party boat" in the day in between hearing VP of engineering lie about the scheduled availability of the new product and the company's President assuring them that their below water stock options will actually be worth something when the economy improves.
Thirdly, we have the spectre of a hurricanse destroying the oil rigs and crude covering the coasts. Uh.... Could I mention that Katrina didn't hurt a single rig?
Could I mention that we have new superb tyechnology????
Finally, the bottom line. If John and Jane Sixpack don't have jobs, they aren't going to be driving to Florida, or California or wherever and staying in all those motels and eat in all those resturnants that give those low paying jobs to illegal aliens the Democrats love so much.
Why do the Democrats and the environmental wackos hate illegal aliens?
