http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...e-bachmann-says-barack-obama-has-released-al/ So while deflecting from a question about her lying and attacking President Obama, Michele Bachmann lies again. I also fail to see how the President has " unfortunately put American energy resources off limits." Why do I say that? List of countries by oil production - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Because as of 2011, we're #3 in the world in oil production by a large amount. Those who are saying we need to drill more are ignoring just how much we drill already. Furthermore, there is no evidence that all or even any of the oil that is drilled will stay in this country when it is finally available years down the road.
