Here is just another thing about that awful white/wet/WHO KNOWS people-lovin’ Michele Bachmann, who is your next president, at least until the Mayans rapture everyone down to Hades. Michele Bachmann is very concerned about the lack of jobs in America, and also about our dependency on foreign oil. Lucky for us, Michele Bachmann has a plan, which includes, probably among other terrifying ideas, ripping up the Everglades for oil.
Bachman said the United States needs to tap into all of its energy resources no matter where they exist if it can be done responsibly.
“The United States needs to be less dependent on foreign sources of energy and more dependent upon American resourcefulness. Whether that is in the Everglades, or whether that is in the eastern Gulf region, or whether that’s in North Dakota, we need to go where the energy is,” she said. “Of course it needs to be done responsibly. If we can’t responsibly access energy in the Everglades then we shouldn’t do it.”
In 2002, the federal government at the urging of President George W. Bush bought back oil and gas drilling rights in the Everglades for $120 million. Bachmann, who wants to get rid of the federal Environmental Protection Agency, said she would rely on experts to determine whether drilling can be done without harming the environment.
