President Obama Once Again Shows How Much He Cares.........

About Job Creation and Energy Independence.
Just like the Keystone Pipeline Project I mentioned the other day, the Obama administration has decided that 200,000 jobs in Ohio aren't really all that important.

Obama USDA delays shale drilling, up to 200k jobs

"President Obama's United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing...."

"Speaking of the WNF gas drilling, one environmentalist group spokesman suggested that moving forward with drilling "could turn the Ohio Valley into Ozone Alley," even though Wayne National Forest already has nearly 1300 oil and gas wells in operation."

Ohio, is one of those big, "Battle Ground" states and I would hope that someone there would be bright enough to remind those 200,000 potential workers about this come 2012 and election time.
Silly Bastards.

Gratuitous Picture for a Friday-
