Domestic oil production overall in the U.S. is at its highest level in the past eight years, according to the misleading “nonsense” coming from the Energy Department.
The facts are that production on federal lands was down 14 percent year-over-year in 2011, and overall remains 13 percent lower than it was in 2003.
Still, Obama insisted he’s not backing away from drilling or searching for more oil as he stands by and watches fuel costs skyrocket!
“You wouldn’t know it from listening to some of these folks running for office, but producing more oil here in our own country has been, and will continue to be, a key part of our energy strategy,” Obama said.
Wow, can this President “spin” the truth or what? What about the Keystone Pipeline Project Mr. Obama? What about rising gas prices that your own Energy Minister admits is a positive force for your expensive alternative energy policies? Is that what you are doing? Bankrupting us all so that we can burn algae in magic pots as an energy source?
You are quietly eliminating coal-burning power plants from the system while making speeches about how important it is to pursue all energy sources? You severely lack credibility Mr. President!
