Ed Shultz Show tonight-Terry McAuliffe wants drilling off the shore, will Hillary do this with him?

Ed Shultz tonight said no one has asked Hillary this question, and they need to quickly.

Terry McAuliffe, democratic governor of VA, used to be very against drilling when he ran the party, and lived in Florida. Now, Terry wants to drill off the Atlantic. The small businesses in the area are against it, because of the memories of the BPee Gulf oil spill.

Tonight they showcased the six year anniversary, and the paltry payout by BP for all the damage. Ed Shultz says it's up to Obama, to tell them that is not enough. All believe Obama should do just that.

Now that Terry is on board with Obama to drill, Ed asked if this is where democratic mentality is going, that it's not just a partisan divide, they can now find a home for drilling in our democratic party?

The other governors along the coast fought Obama, and it was dropped. Terry McAuliffe, a DEMOCRAT pushed for this drilling policy and is still pushing for this policy. Small business near the coast do not want any part of drilling off their coast.

These are just multinational companies who would love to do business, and not pay for the cost of that business when it comes to the environment. They never do. Just look at the constant fight in Louisiana, and now with matters of the Gulf of Mexico, businesses in four states from BP. It's still a mess, the eco system is very damaged in the Gulf.

There is a glut of oil now! Is THIS how we tackle climate change? Not hardly!

While Hillary was fundraising in S. Florida, their elected officials were fighting Obama on this drilling. Hillary was in Florida so they reached out and asked months ago where she stood. Hillary refused to answer.

It's time for Hillary to answer: Is she for drilling off of our Atlantic coast for oil and gas? Is this what her and Gov. McAuliffe are cooking up? After all, she wants to continue on the Obama path. This path was stopped. Will we have to fight Hillary on this?

It's time for Hillary to answer.

3. Ed says it's getting late and it needs to be asked. This was a recent fight.

 

The corporations want this, and they like Hillary. Now, she has her pal Terry, who they gave life to, who loaned them the money for their home after Bill left the White House, former DNC chair....in the state they want, to break open the waters, for slimy oil companies who don't give a shit about our environment, like Tony, "I want my life back" from BP.

This is big and we need an answer. We know Bernie is against it.

2. Go over her head. Ask her bosses

 

Would Wall Street and Big Oil like to drill for oil in the Atlantic?

6. We don't care. We will vote for whoever Team "D" puts up as the nominee.


Both parties may as well rebrand themselves as "R" and "D", dropping the words "republican" and "democratic" altogether.

7. Quoth Hillary

I am very sceptical about the need or desire for us to pursue offshore drilling off the coast of South Carolina, and frankly off the coast of other southeast states

9. I think it's silly demanding Hillary to tell you her position

because she will say whatever she thinks is expedient at a given moment.

10. Fracking, combined with her "Drill, baby, drill" attitude, is what the 1%ers want.

This election season some of the rich and powerful aren't supporting the candidate this time . . they're just voting for the same old GOP policies of the past.

It's just different packaging this time.

This time it isn't Sister Sarah saying this shit, it's Hillary.

Sarah's meme of "Obama pals around with terrorists" as compared to Hillary's "Bernie is responsible for the massacre of Sandy Hook".

Just packaged a little different this time around.

11. Hillary hasn't had a press conference in 4 months

And has only had a limited number of debates. There are a lot of questions that should have been asked of her that never were.

13. It's easy to read the tea leaves - ask "Who profits"...

 

and "Are they contributing to Hillary's campaign?" if you can draw the money line, Hillary will support it, regardless of her posturing.
