    Because these totally ignorant Obamatrons evidently believe the lyrics to the theme for "Beverly Hillbillies"..
    "Jed A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
    Then one day he was shootin at some food,
    And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.
    Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea."

    source:Beverly Hillbillies Lyrics - Theme Song Lyrics

    The reason is because how many times have we heard this OLD tired cliched first stated by Obama on the campaign trail...

    Obama (June 24): The oil companies already own drilling rights to 68 million acres of federal lands, onshore and offshore, that they haven’t touched. 68 million acres that have the potential to nearly double America’s total oil production.

    The charge has been repeated by Nancy Pelosi and others in his party.

    So, there are 68 million acres of leased land on which companies aren’t extracting oil,
    but Obama went too far when he said oil companies "haven’t touched" them. As Bureau of Land Management Petroleum Engineer Bill Gewecke, who manages the onshore sites, told us, he "wouldn’t say untouched, would say undeveloped."

    That’s because these leased lands that don’t contain productive drilling operations likely are not lying idle as Obama implies.
    There are a lot of steps and procedures involved in setting up a productive oil well on leased land, both onshore and off. The Bureau of Land Management’s Web site lists the regulatory hurdles that need to be cleared as part of the larger five-step life cycle of a well. The path to setting up an offshore drilling operation is even longer, as shown in a large flow chart developed by the MMS.
    And there is a lot of activity occurring on leased lands that does not qualify as "production."
    That’s a total of more than 15,000 holes that were being proposed, started or finished that do not count as "productive" holes.

    Do you independent voters that voted for Obama NOW understand how totally ignorant he is as is his supporters?

    I mean these idiots think like Jeb all you have to do is shoot and oil comes up!

    Oh and if their ignorance of OIL isn't bad enough.. these same ignorant people are laying claim to increased OIL production under Obama!
    Right... except the FACTS are:
    1) Production on Federal Leases is DOWN!
    While President Obama has been touting in recent days that his administration is promoting oil drilling in the United States, oil production on federally owned lands has in fact declined by 17,000 barrels per day since he took office in 2009.

    Oil Production on Federal Lands Has Declined Under Obama | CNSNews.com

    In a clear signal that the Obama administration is shifting the government's approach to energy exploration on public lands, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar yesterday canceled oil and gas leases on 77 parcels of federal land after opponents said the drilling would blight Utah's scenic southeastern corner.

    Salazar's decision -- which reverses the Bush administration's move to allow drilling on about 130,000 acres near pristine areas such as Nine Mile Canyon, Arches National Park and Dinosaur National Monument -- is one of a series of steps that the new administration and congressional Democrats are planning to reshape federal regulation of drilling, mining, lumbering and other resource-tapping activities.

    I love that show, too bad the rest of your post is as entertaining as a test pattern.

    Because handcuffing domestic energy production is such a good thing, right?

    I think of it as a way to have global redistribution of wealth.
    We won't drill it in the Gulf, but we'll invite Brazil to come over and drill it.

    It is also a potentially good thing to keep some in the ground for the possibility of a future disruption of world supply. Domestic production is fine but it is being sold off to the world market and the argument that increasing it is any path to lower prices or energy independence is false with the oil market as it is. Big oil is going to keep world supply at a level that will make current production techniques profitable, any increase domestically will be answered by decreases elsewhere to keep things like oil sands and deep water drilling profitable.

    Of course you loved it! You proved my point!

    I bet you also think health insurance companies just sit around all day and say..
    pay this ... don't pay this... screw our customers!!!

    I bet you also agree with numnuts Obama on eliminating what ALL american businesses do write off expenses of doing businesses BUT just for oil companies cause they are NOT americans!

    I bet you also DIDN"T KNOW that Obama has WRITTEN OFF his OWN personal taxes every year for at least the last 3 years an average of $100,000 in capital losses just like the other evil tax paying Americans do.. YET he complains about the "wealthy not paying their fair share"!

    How about this hypocrisy... tells americans.. can't fly to Las Vegas YET his wife takes 10 secret service and family to Las Vegas...
    YEA you and Obama certainly set a great example for how hypocrites and ignoramuses (ignorami for Latin purists!) take advantage of affirmative actions!!!

    Of course further proof of the mental capacity of Obamatrons was in Keystone rejection.

    Keystone critics obviously favored shipping 1 million barrels per day via tanker to China!
    They evidently showing again their mental capacity risk destruction of thousands of miles of ocean ..(think of Exxon Valdez!!) then the worst case 325 barrels flowing in one mile of pipeline on the ground easily accessible to stop,clean up!
    1 million barrels on the ocean in a tanker VS 325 barrels in one mile of pipeline!
    Should be a no brainer right???
