    Gas Production Up 11% under Obama

    Those pesky little facts.

    Energy policy, climate change and environmentalism.
    Domestic Oil Production is Up 11% Under Obama and Was Down 15% Under Bush

    The GOP’s favorite line of attack against the President recently has been that his administration is blocking American oil production and making gas prices go up:

    “The Obama administration has consistently blocked America’s energy production.” — Speaker John Boehner, March 10, 2011
    “These resources are being kept out of reach because of an intense regulatory bias and radical environmental activists — both in the administration and elsewhere.” — Chairman of the Oversight and Government Oversight Committee Rep. Darrell Issa, May 12, 2011
    “He is diminishing and decreasing the amount of energy in our market domestically and that, of course, resulting in prices that are rising and gas having doubled since he has been in office.” — Sarah Palin, May 6, 2011
    “I would reverse Obama’s entire pattern of being anti-American energy. I would start by saying drill here — drill now, pay less.” — Newt Gingrich, May 12, 2011
    “The decisions that the President is making on energy, and has been making since the beginning of his administration, has made it very clear that America is not interested in developing our own energy resources.” — Mitt Romney, April 25, 2011
    “This is a president who has sat on his hands as it relates to drilling. You know, we’ve got a country that’s got some enormous energy assets that are not being exploited or leveraged to the benefit of our country and to our people.” — Tim Pawlenty, April 25, 2011
    Incredibly, none of the Republicans hammering Obama for supposedly strangling domestic oil production bothered to check the data.

    While domestic production declined each year under President Bush, falling from 5.8 million barrels per day to less than 5 million, production (XLS) has increased 11% since Obama came into office. It would have increased even more if a pesky oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico hadn’t intervened.

    Told everyone that Obama or his minions, would try to take credit for this even after all his posturing.

    If you remember correctly, this boon is partially due to "fracking". Are you now in support of "fracking" to support Obama?

    "this boon is partially due to fracking."
    Um, have the courage to first list the % of fracking thats contributed to the 11 % rise under President Obama.
    Then tell us why it went down 15% under Bush and his "minions" (where do you come up with this
    nonsense. Oh right. lunatic, right wing web sites.)

    If you knew your facts you would know that neither President Obama nor Democratic Governor Cuomo oppose fracking, but they sure as hell support trying to make sure if its going to be done close to communities that it doesnt contaminate people's drinking water. Seems reasonable dont you think?

    Still waiting for your breakdown of what % of fracking
    contributed to the 11% gain in production during President Obama's term.
    Still waiting for why oil and gas productions went down 15% under Bush.

    Peter Schiff your idol.
    Gotta love that to.

    Here is something I posted a year ago in jan. 2011 about Peter Schiff.
    Its an example of what happens when you become a rigid adherent to a right wing ideology.
    SiriuslyWrong really should be embarassed to have pushed Peter Schiffs book and his Austrian School
    of economics in this website.

    Peter Schiff Says U.S. is Powerless to Prevent Runaway Inflation, Silver to Soar to $100
    Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010
    Sep 12, 2010 - 01:23 AM

    Peter Schiff forecasts that Silver could reach $100 following a collapse of the U.S. Dollar as he says “The United States right now is completely powerless to prevent runaway inflation”, as the U.S. continues with policies of more economic stimulus and bigger deficits.

    “I think growth is real around the world and I think inflation, unfortunately, is very real. Central banks are much too easy. They’re printing much too much money.
