    No, he just doesn't want the billions it will cost for that shinny toy after Obama says that the loser is all his.

    Trust me, I lived in Maryland, Ocela is a loser.

    No, you interjected your self in a discussion about peak oil and attempted to change the subject.

    Given that we passed peak oil in this country in 1971, what other option do you see? 40 years of mismanagement of our energy resources is finally catching up with us.

    Should have listened to President Carter.

    Snopes has long been speculated to be biased to the left, however seeing how much faith you put into it, even after you're earlier posting had been questioned, leaves me to conclude that they are indeed biased.....

    And the USGS, who's reports were referenced by SNOPES? Are they biased too? But your "facts," an editorial opinion, was not, is that it? You are embarrassing yourself.

    don't worry about it........most of us KNOW that snopes doesn't do politics. this is just a person who can't accept facts.

    Let me refresh your memory loss........

You have already been shown that the Bakkens could supply us without about one years use at our current consumption. And it is currently being pumped but hardly making a difference at all that I have seen in the gas prices.

    4. ANWR - 10.4 billion barrels
    5. Alaskan National Petroleum Reserve - 10.6 billion barrels
    6. Bakken - 4 billion barrels

    and finally if oil shale becomes profitable, we have 2.175 gigabarrels of oil.
    Look familiar ????

    I don't see anything about "peak oil" there..........do you???

    I will wait for your apology, but based on your history, I won't be holding my breath.
