Horse Gone, Schaffer wants to close Roan Plateau Barn door
Plateau as "scrub land" not worth saving follow suit?
Now that the BLM has given away the Roan, why is Bob Schaffer endorsing Governor Ritter's plan to save most of the Roan Plateau from drilling. Will his Oil Lobbyist supporters admit that the Roan Plateau is worth saving?
We know Oil Man Bob Schaffer hasn't changed the tune he's been singing
since he left the Congress to work in the oil industry. He is just
pandering for votes on the Western Slope because he knows it's a hot-
button issue. It's also a cheap pander (as a commenter already noted),
because the BLM has made its decision, the governor is powerless, and
only an act of Congress signed by the President can change course.
