    "The president's own administration has released a report which reveals that the United States has 26 percent of the world's technically recoverable conventional oil resources, and that's not including our enormous oil shale, tight oil and heavy oil resources. This report from the U.S. Geological Survey is vindication for anyone who thought that President Obama's claims ... are less than honest."

    It seems I am on this oil kick. Not true, just trying to do my part on exposing BHO for what he really is
    Its not personal, we just need a new direction, this one is not working. If it was BHO would not be saying these things

    Define "technically recoverable" in the context of Obama's claim.

    I anticipate a few problems with your OP, well, at least among some of our liberal friends...

    First, it has to do with Republicans. That's a big no-no...

    Second, it has to do with Republicans and a study, presumably one of a scientific nature. As we all know from reading many a thread here, Republicans hate science. It is therefore impossible for the two to be linked.

    Third, it contradicts things Obama says or has said. He's never wrong.

    And last but certainly not least... Fox News.

    Technically recoverable = oil Obama wants to pretend we do not have

    I own some property in NW Florida that has capped wells in the area from the 60s.

    There recovering oil 6 miles deep in the Gulf. I am not sure what "technically recoverable" could mean when there doing that

    Conservatives are going to push for a domestic energy moonshot, which will:

    1) create MILLIONS of new jobs

    2) greatly reduce our dependency on foreign oil

    3) solve the national security risk of relying on foreign oil

    4) dramatically improve our balance of trade


    It is coming soon, and it is a winning proposition.

    BHO made 3 huge mistakes that will cost him his job on November

    1) the stimulus was a failure. Its only intent was to reset the base-line our budget is. This has caused a 5 trillion dollar addition to our deficit with no real job growth
    2) He wasted the first 2 years on Obama-care instead of the economy
    3) Oil, plain in simple every well regulated chance we have to explore/extract/deliver/refine/dliver/and sale should have been a top priority

    Oil exploration is not about the price of gas, its about jobs plain and simple

    Win Win for America, and a real loser for the fossil fuel Nazis on the Left.

    We could be completely energy independent and off middle east oil entirely in a decade if we actually had an energy policy. Unfortunately our energy policy is directed almost entirely at "green energy" and this administration is laying waste to our oil / natural gas exploration / extraction...
