Breitling Oil and Gas Morning Podcast #179 10-25-12

I was disappointed, but not surprised, to learn of President Obama’s desparate attacks on the
successful American companies such as those in the oil and natural gas industry. There have
always been politicians who are willing to pit one group of Americans against another in order to
win an election.

We are a nation that has always looked favorably upon success. The American dream has always
been rooted in the idea that hard work brings success, and we have the right to enjoy the fruit
of our labors. Our Declaration of Independence says that man is entitled to “life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness.” But it guarantees neither happiness nor riches for any man. These are
things to be earned through hard work and determination. The President, instead, wishes to take
from one group and redistribute them as he sees fit. This is done under the guise of successful
companies “paying their fair share.”
