Tom Cole, Oil Boy

June 19, 2010

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) is another politician in the pocket of big oil, making decisions to benefit the oil and gas industry regardless of the consequences to our lives and our futures. Here is Rep. Cole urging you to sign a petition to “Drill Here, Drill Now.”

My question to Rep. Cole is, “How’s that ‘Drill Here, Drill Now’ thingy going, anyway?” I don’t think that he’s been checking out the NOAA Interactive map of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Incredibly enough Cole thinks the disaster is an “Act of God.” The rest of us thought it was caused by human greed and incompetency.

What do you expect from someone who’s one of the top recipients of oil money and who’s voted in favor of big oil companies 90% of the time from 2005-2007?

We need new leadership in Congress. It’s time to vote out the Oil Boys and replace them with elected representatives who can think, decide and lead. Not lackeys who sell their votes to the highest bidder.
