    EXACT words...
    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Here's what happened. You had a whole bunch of oil companies who had leases on public lands that they weren't using.
    So what we said was, you can't just sit on this for 10, 20, 30 years, decide when you want to drill,
    when you want to produce, when it's most profitable for you. These are public lands.
    So if you want to drill on public lands, you use it or you lose it."
    Transcript And Audio: Obama-Romney 2nd Presidential Debate : NPR


    First of all... why is OBAMA ALWAYS ready to TEAR businesses a new one???
    Does he understand you get a lot more with honey then vinegar... but of course it doesn't make a difference when people perceive you as a Messiah... people, oil companies MUST OBEY!

    But more important this Obama attitude shows absolutely totally NAIVE knowledge of OIL exploration, production!

    When Obama BLAMES Oil companies have already leased 38 million acres in the U.S. and they are not drilling on them.

    There is absolutely no way that this is the whole story.
    Does anyone actually believe that any smart business would go around buying these leases, for a minimum of $26,700 for 670 acres (which is the minimum size), and then never using them? The AP put this out to support this retarded argument. Try clicking on a state to see how much land the oil companies are not using.


    Let's think about the entire Oil process. Oil companies must do a whole lot of research. They have geologists telling them the likelihood that oil will be found in a certain area. These geologists are very good at what they do. They can tell a lot from satellite, then they can tell more from seismic tests, even more from core samples. These tests go in order. But they can only do the seismic tests after the lease has been secured. Tell me first why would you lease land just for the fun of it? Do really think that the oil companies are going to lease land that they don't think will ever produce, just because the BLM said they are willing to lease it out.

    Why Do Oil Companies Refuse To Drill On 38,317,322 Acres Already Leased?

    Use it or lose it. That is how it works with my vacation at work, that is how it should work for the oil companies. If they don't think that the land has oil underneath it, then we are doing them a favor by ending their lease on it.

    In a blog by Breitbart on the 10 big lies of the debate, there is this:

    4. "And the production is up....What you’re saying is just not true." Obama contested a claim by Romney that production of oil and gas is down on federal lands. He even accused Romney of not telling the truth. But Romney was right--exactly right, down to the percentage decline. Furthermore, Obama's claim that he has been increasing oil and gas production on federal lands flies in the face of recent policy decisions, such as closing off a large part of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska to further development. Obama has tried to take credit for expansion on private lands, while opposing expansion wherever possible.

    Chris Wallace then pointed out that oil production of public lands is DOWN 62%!

    I cannot believe that anybody can speak in front of 60 million American and lie like Obama did.

    That's also why we have grants and how funding gets out of hand......When you have a grant.....buy shit before it's up...so your funding increases....the liberal way!

    I cannot believe you would actually post such drivel without doing a bit of research. Or do you just like to repeat lies?:eusa_hand:

    Here is the truth of the matter;

    Myths And Facts About Oil And Gasoline | Research | Media Matters for America


    The data in the report, which go back to 2003, show that there was indeed a large decline in oil production on federal lands and waters in 2011. But that observation belies the fact that federal lands and waters were exceptionally productive during 2010, outstripping any year's productivity during the Bush administration. Indeed, the average productivity on federal land and waters during the four Bush years, 2003-2008, was 634 million barrels per year. During the three Obama years, 2009-2011, it was 676 million barrels. During the Bush years, federal lands produced roughly 33 percent of the national output on average. During the Obama years, they produced roughly 34 percent. [Columbia Journalism Review, 3/22/12]

    Romney flat out lied on this matter. As you also have done.

    YES you are right! Production INCREASED on Federal LANDS that take about 10 years to develop SO OBAMA had NOTHING to do with production increases on Federal land leases that WERE LET UNDER BUSH!!!

    BLAME Bush ok???
    The MEASURE is NOT production BUT LEASES LET!
    OIL LEASES under OBAMA in 3 years new leases 5,568 new leases..
    Under Bush.. from 2006 to 2008 15,095 new leases!

    A 2/3rds Reduction in FEDERAL LEASES !
    How can you dispute THAT FACT?

    And then knowing it takes 10 years from exploration to development... IT certainly has NOTHING to do with OBAMA's efforts!
    BUT Obama could have approved as many or more leases... that's the measurement of attitude i.e. for oil or against.
    Obama obviously could have encouraged rather then discouraged OIL leases !

    Show me how Obama HELPED increase oil production on federal lands that were leased BEFORE his administration???
