    What? I thought that Obama said oil production is at the highest level in 8 years.

    I guess it is, if you count the stuff Obama has no control over.

    Didn't Obama tell us otherwise that production has increased? (Or did he take credit for something Bush did...again)?

    Appears what Obama is saying is not the truth. AKA fibbing.

    Great article here:

    March 22, 2012
    Obama Caught Fibbing at Oil Field

    Read more: Obama Caught Fibbing at Oil Field - President Obama - Fox Nation


    From the article:

    Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., and others disputed Obama's assertion that his policies have increased production on federal lands.

    "While oil production on private lands has increased, according to the Institute of Energy Research, oil production on federal land was down 11% in 2011," Pearce said.

    Tim Wigley, president of Western Energy Alliance, said Obama's "bureaucracies and broken policies are making energy development in the West increasingly difficult, time consuming, and cost prohibitive."

    In an effort to force unviable tech on an economy not ready nor willing to accept Obama's premise.

    I like this article. The author doesn't mince his words. Straight from the hip. And his piece covers stats on all fossil fuels. Check it out.:D

    Salazar Lied About Oil Production on Federal Lands
    By Jim Geraghty
    March 20, 2012 9:57 A.M.


    Yesterday I pointed out that the production of fossil fuels on federal lands is down from fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2011 (October 1, 2009, to September 30, 2010, compared to October 1, 2010, to September 30, 2011).

    This is significant because the administration is . . . well, lying. Not long ago, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said, “The fact of the matter is we are producing more from public lands — both oil and gas, both onshore as well as offshore, than any time in recent memory.”

    Not only is Salazar wrong, he’s wrong for every type of fossil fuel produced on federal lands.

    Crude-oil production? Down from 739 million barrels to 646 million barrels in FY 2011.

    Natural-gas production? Down from 5,415 billion cubic feet (Bcf) to 4,859 billion cubic feet (Bcf) in FY 2011.

    Natural-gas plant liquids? Down from 115 million barrels to 111 million barrels in FY 2011

    Coal production? Down from 478 million short tons to 470 million short tons in FY 2011.

    Taken altogether, the total amount of fossil fuels produced from federal land hit 18.6 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu), lower than every year since 2003.

    QW simple question here. When we can uncover their blatant lies so easily, why do they bother lying?

    Are they living in an alternate universe? They must be. I find it most bizarre. It's not even a matter of the Administration "hyping". It's flat out and out lying.
