    All we need is for Obama to open up Federal Lands to Drilling.

    Guess what, we can drill our way out of this mess. we can become a net exporter of Energy, and go a long way to balancing our Trade Deficits. All we need to do is go after it.

    But will we? Me thinks not for at least 4 more years.

    Wasn't it like just yesterday some lib was telling me the idea that we have all this oil is a "Right wing Lie" Made up by Romney?

    Here is the IEA saying it's fact.

    The U.S. is going to become the world's top oil producer in Obama's second term? Well, that shoots a hole in a few things we've heard, doesn't it?

    Are you incapable of reading, or just a Partisan hack?

    It says the US could over take China, it does not say we will. If Obama has his way, it's not very likely, or do you see him all of the sudden reversing course and allowing more drilling on Federal Lands?

    We know that's what the government is telling us but for all we know, it's as true as some movie causing the Benghazi massacre.

    Was it not Libs telling us just a few short years ago how we were running out of Oil, and we could not possibly drill our way out of this?

    Now, Despite Obama not allowing more drilling on Federal Lands, we are still poised to become the Worlds biggest producer, and if we went after all that oil on Federal Lands in Ernest we could actually become the worlds leading Oil Exporter.

    Just think of how far we could go toward balancing our trade deficits if we actually went after all the oil, and not just the oil on Private land.

    Nothing in there suggests that their forecast that we will (read: will) become the world's top oil producer by the end of Obama's 2nd term suggests that prediction is contingent on a policy change. So it appears this is the case under the current administration's policies.

    I accept your apology.
