Palin Shunned Large Oil Companies

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Palin Represents The Interests of Oil Companies Who Support The Arab Muslim Middle East

Submitted by GmaM11 (United States), Oct 2, 2008 at 12:31

My son is corporate attorney for a large company in Alaska, focusing on oil and gas issues. He carefully followed Sarah Palin. The reason the natural gas pipeline sat on the drawing board for 10 years because the former governor was "in bed" with large oil interests, and restricted bidding on the pipeline to those companies. Palin came along, opened the bidding, awarded the contract to a Canadian company, and construction will begin soon. The only oil interest she has an interest in (play on words) is the oil in Alaska that will help our country decrease dependence on foreign oil....PERIOD.

Before you start spouting your liberal "hate the oil barons" claptrap, you should do some homework. It is the liberals who have been blocking US oil development, insuring our dependence on foreign oil. Follow the money!!! Who do you think is in bed the oil interests, the ones trying to increase independent, US production or the ones blocking it. Here is the klinker.....the oil companies that sat on their duffs for ten years are furious with Palin and are determined to finance and build their own pipeline. So it appears there will be not one, but two natural gas pipelines from Alaska....helping wildlife by providing more protected, warm space for breeding and survival, just like the current pipeline.
