    In some cases, but not necessarily. I wasn't disputing the fact that it's all energy, I was disputing your claim that BWG was being dishonest.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    He is in a manner of speaking. By trying to promote numbers that are questionable as to the overall outlook on energy exploration, and extraction in this country, he is being at the least disingenuous when he tries to say that drilling is up.

    Obama/Biden have a declared policy of killing the current sources, and methods of energy in favor of some utopian wet dream of alternate resource that is at present not known or developed. Meanwhile, the people that libs love to say they are on the side of, the working man like you and I, get squeezed from both ends.

    Look, I like the idea of coming up with less harmful, cleaner energy sources just as much as the next guy, but until we have that proven, and affordable for the country, we must do more of what is in place now. And that includes opening up more oil, coal, and natural gas resource.

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    Doesnt it irk liberals that obama just gave 2 billion to brazil to drill for oil and do some drilling right off our coast. So were creating jobs for brazilians now not just chinese and mexicans. Gimme a break.
    We need to drill in the gulf <where I live btw> and anwar and anywhere else there is an abundance of domestic oil. It just makes SENSE.
    We should pursue the alternatives but cmon be honest liberals any viable alternative energy source that will serve the mass's is generations away and you know it.
    Ethanol the biggest bamboozle in environazis history...all its done is drive the price of FOOD sky high its done zero for lessening oil dependence.

    We need to drill here and drill now...we need to build more refineries while we continue to try and find an alternative energy source to oil that will actually work and we can actually afford...

    Absolutely! Living in FL, it must really piss you off knowing that China is going to drill a mere 90 miles from Key West....Probably slant drill, so they'll be stealing our oil.

    It's our oil? Really?
    Did you know that US oil companies drill all over the world?

    march 15, 2011, the fifth circuit sides with salazar:

    Appeals court issues a stay on drilling ruling - CBS News

    four days earlier: Bill Clinton: Drilling delays 'ridiculous' - Darren Goode - POLITICO.com

    what delays could mr clinton be referring to?

    Clouding the issue are you? We are talking about domestic sources at this moment....

    You do know that oil is a global market, right? If China can't produce the oil they need, world prices will rise.

    Ofcourse, and if we were to announce that we were going to explore our own resources what do you think would happen to global prices?

    China is doing just fine....They certainly aren't restricting themselves are they now? In fact, I think only we, the US are doing that.

    Change would be negligible. Everyone knows how much oil we have and it's not that much. Do you honestly believe the US is not exploring our own resources? Nobody is that dumb, are they?
    The way China is going they are not fine.

    Our problem is we use too much oil.
