Dumbfounded | AspenTimes.com


Dear Editor:

Is it true that Obama is buying $2 billion worth of oil from Petrobus in Brazil after closing down our own rigs? He’s banned our rigs from drilling at 500 feet, costing us billions of dollars in rigs sitting idle.

Meanwhile he buys from Petrobus, which drills offshore at 14,000 feet. Nothing like giving away money to another country and taking it away from our own! Somebody please explain the rationale!
