SEARCH BLOG: OBAMA and OIL
From the Financial Times:
President Obama re-iterated his boast that oil production has risen during his administration... a claim discussed here:
As the National Review article states:
‘When it comes to American energy production, President Obama is like a rooster who crows at the sunrise, then imagines that he conjured up the morning,” jokes Ben Cole of the Institute for Energy Research. The White House has been taking credit for increased oil production, when it actually was taking place on state and private lands while output on federal lands was dropping. Now, the administration is touting the construction of the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline, though so far the process has been entirely outside federal jurisdiction.It appears President Obama's re-election hope is to fool enough people all of the time. No change there.
