Another Republican Screaming Lie Revealed

Revealed to be the usual load of conservative garbage by this information about Obama's oil drilling moratorium. Republicans have been thundering in anger for weeks about all of the jobs lost by Obama's efforts to keep the oil companies from doing whatever they please, regardless of the danger.

"weekly unemployment claims data in the mining industry sector, which comprises primarily oil- and gas-related jobs, have shown no noticeable spike since the moratorium was declared May 28. Overall employment data in coastal parishes also show little change since the drilling ban."

So, once again, the Republican party has managed to gin up a whole mess of outrage about nothing. In the meantime, Democrats have continued to try to do their jobs. How can there even be any question about which party is more fit to run this country?
