Johnston J. Bennett Jr. Quotes

When I go down in my state, I see virtually none of the independent oil producers for [President Jimmy] Carter … We’ve gotten higher drilling rig counts, more dollars being spent, more activity, more profits being made by oil people than ever before. But do they like Carter? Oh no. they hate him because of his rhetoric.

 
Context
30 years later, the same situation existed with Barack Obama as President. The independent oil producers also were doing very well, but the President’s rhetoric was not what they wanted to hear, just as they reacted to President Carter in 1982. He told Americans to conserve energy—not what oil men wanted to hear.
