Skip to comments.Is Obama really the oil drilling President as Democrats claim?(‘How to identify a big lie easily’)

Well the economy is moving in the right direction at least temporarily as Obama says, and oil and gas prices prices are on the rise again moving in the 'wrong' direction. After killing the Canadian Oil pipeline Obama and his Democrat lackeys are claiming that Obama is the oil production president, claiming that domestic oil production is way higher now under Obama than when Bush was in office. In fact they claim that domestic oil production is SO high under Obama that they and Obama and Pelosi are once again calling for raising taxes specifically on domestic oil production (code phrase remove subsidies) to reduce it all while claiming we must become energy independent.
So now we have the standard political back and forth, one side claiming one thing, the other claiming the opposite. How do we know who is really lying? This is very simple if you know what to look for.
Watch anti-oil greenies reaction to these claims. For example, back in 2010 and even some of 2011 Rachael Maddow and others were ranting every night about the evils of domestic oil production and how Obama needs to be more aggressive in shutting it down. So how is she (are they) reacting to Obama administration bragging that the US is now the leader in domestic energy production, something that she preached endlessly is an evil? They are cheer leading the claim. Yes the haters of oil production are cheering what they claim is record oil production under Obama. If what they claim was really true then they would be screaming at Obama not praising him for it.
That is how you can tell it is a lie.
Lets apply this rule to Obamas Catholic Church birth control/contraceptive mandates ‘compromise’ claim. Obamas liberal lackeys (Maddow, Schultz,
Bonnie Erbe) all claim that Obama compromised on that part of the mandate. Is this realistic to believe? Well just apply the above rule. If Obama actually compromised on a birth control/contraceptive mandate those pro-abortion libs (Maddow, Schultz,
Bonnie Erbe) would be screeming at him on their show, but instead they are praising it. Like with oil production they would NEVER praise any compromise on birth control; instead they would be screaming at Obama for it.
That is how you can tell it is a lie.

Energy independence question that the MSM will never ask Obama:
How many barrels of imported oil did Solyndra save us in return for that $535 million OF OUR MONEY that the Obama stimulus handed them?
Stupidest argument against Domestic Oil Production:
We shouldnt let oil companies drill here because they might sell the oil to those in other countries
Morning Joes stupid comment of the day(today) :
Why are Republicans going after free birth control mandates in Obama-care with the Blunt amendment when that issue has been settled in the 1960s.
OK Joe, How the hell could those Obama-care mandates be settled in the 1960s when they dont go into law until 2013? Why are you constantly repeating liberal propaganda when you constantly claim you are a conservative?
Newt is and will take him to task on it. GO NEWT GO!

Award for ‘Worst’ picture:
Thanks for the ping.
Last I heard, he'd been drilled so much the boy's in San Francisco named the field after him.
Press conference question:
“Mr. President, you say that there’s no need to open public lands to drilling because it would take at least five years for the first barrel to come out of the ground, so how is it then that you’ve been President for only three years and you’re taking credit for today’s increase in domestic production?”
Very well done. I been thinking about that too, but I forgot to put it in the vanity :)
