Louisiana Small Business Owner Begs Obama: Let Me Go Back to Work (Video)

There’s a reason why Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

While gas prices soar to $4 per gallon the anti-business Obama Administration STILL will not allow American deepwater drilling companies to operate in the Gulf of Mexico even though his moratorium is illegal.

But, enough is enough.
Louisiana small businessman Thomas Clements made this video wondering why the President hasn’t done anything to get drilling started again in the Gulf of Mexico. Clements’ business has lost over $400,000 and may close by June if new permits aren’t issued.

The transcript:

My name is Thomas Clements, owner of Oilfield CNC Machining in Broussard, LA.

The present administration need to step up and they need to do this now and start giving out permits, and get us back to work.

I don’t know why we have to ask to go back to work. Everything that they’ve asked for is there. U.S. companies have gone above and beyond the call of duty. And America is the best at — the best at what we do.

The federal government is over here, it’s supposed to be protecting us from foreign companies or foreign entities — that’s my understanding of what the federal government’s role is — and here they are, not doing anything to protect us. We had great news come out yesterday, the Marine Well Containment System, and what’s the president do, the administration? They say nothing. They haven’t said anything, I mean, I would think that’d be extraordinary news for the Gulf of Mexico.

The present administration has got me held as a hostage here on their political agenda.

If Barack Obama cared about jobs he’d lift his deep-water drilling moratorium.
Too bad he doesn’t care.
