Speed Up and Be Much More Aggressive on Getting our Energy So WeCan EXPOER It At...

Dear Mr. Obama,
I wrote about this two years ago. With the advent of the new drilling technologies for extracting oil and natural gas, I urged you to get ahead of this curve and in doing do possibly bring down the national dept to something reasonable. In these years, very little has been done. Bills sit await your approval with only a few being given the green light. In the meantime, we have made little progress on export gas NOR oil into the much more lucrative market. I just don't understand. this. Forget the good of the country for a minute ... you could be in a position to be the president that brought all this revenue ontream for America and you've missed most the chance ... but it's not too late. there is time to have your people be given unambiguous direction to get this energy export ON THE MOVE. Continuing on the current path will simply give you the reputation of the president who could have, but didn't. Who's running that place. This is so simple, economics 101, politics 101, government 101, but you must be getting the WRONG advice. Fire some people and get some in that understand this business and its potential before it's TOO LATE. David Sharpe
