    shorts stand your ground

    Bull Crap! 25 million citizens unemployed and 5 trillion dollars further in debt under Obama. Shovel Ready jobs? None. Obama made promises prior to his election and he has kept none of those promises.

    Keystone XL pipeline? Obama has it on hold because of the election, if he says yes to the pipeline he loses the votes of the environmentalist. Everything Obama does is about him and his re-election. He could care less about jobs for us po-folks.

    Thousands of oil drillers are still without jobs in the Gulf of Mexico because of Obama. Why did he shut down the entire Gulf to begin with? You only penalize the bad guy. If the rest are going by regulations then you let them continue to work.

    Obama is a liar and needs to go!

    • Reminds me of HERO...a billion in debt and nothing to show for it.....take from investers and still nothing. You wanna talk about high unemployment, then consider this. This POS company relies on oil prices that go beyond conventional pricing peaks to generate profits......what do you think will happen if the price of oil continually increases in a recessionary economy?? It will put a strain on businesses and people alike....econ 101 buddy....and oil is not inelastic by any means....the market will reflect that equilibrium accordingly....my point is, this POS of a company relies on inflated oil prices to sustain itself even if it means the collapse of the US economy....the fact that it relies heavily on inflated oil prices to sustain itself also demonstrates its vast inefficiencies!!

        If this POS administration had an ENERGY POLICY it would greatly help the US economy & US security!!

        Great piece of information, thank you! This is how the boards should be more often, exchanging educated information not slandering one another.

        So, what if the price of oil came down and the permitting process sped up. The day rates would be lower but volume is up (less rigs cold stacked)...would that be enough to sustain itself and possibly reach profitability?

      Obama is a campaigner not a President.
