Obama has made America king of oil production on this planet ;)

U.S. surges past Saudis to become world's top oil supplier -PIRA | Reuters

Oct 15 (Reuters) - The United States has overtaken Saudi Arabia to become the world's biggest oil producer as the jump in output from shale plays has led to the second biggest oil boom in history, according to leading U.S. energy consultancy PIRA.

U.S. output, which includes natural gas liquids and biofuels, has swelled 3.2 million barrels per day (bpd) since 2009, the fastest expansion in production over a four-year period since a surge in Saudi Arabia's output from 1970-1974, PIRA said in a release on Tuesday.
Because he puts up a few wind mills, solar farms = somehow he isn't the king of oil?

No he hasn't. And we aren't the great king, Saudi Arabi and Russia are. We are currently #3 in oil production.

Please learn something before cheerleading ignorance as your level of oil and gas knowledge.

The explosion of US oil and gas production is coming from advances in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Wells are drilled to the depth of the source rock (low permeability shale) and kicked-off in a horizontal direction with lateral sections thousands of feet long. The rock is hydraulically fractured in multiple stages to increase the flow rate of the hydrocarbon. While hydraulic fracturing has been around for decades, it has only recently been combined with horizontal drilling to allow these reservoirs to be economically produced. It is unlocking resources that have, until now, been inaccessible.

The Left has made several attempts to limit hydraulic fracturing and oil development in general, and the Obama administration is no exception. Obama-appointed EPA officials, for example, humiliated themselves after their negligent accusations against EnCana in Pavillion, WY and the agency has since backed off the topic of fracking. (The EPA drilled its monitor wells into a hydrocarbon-bearing formation and claimed that the groundwater had been contaminated, among other embarrassing blunders.)

This explosion has come in spite of Obama rather than because of him. If we were to free up the energy industry, we would see even higher rates of production growth.
