More excuses and "blame the republicans" for everything. Pitiful.
Partially correct. Domestic production and leases have increased to an all time high. Unfortunately for your premise, Obama and the federal government had absolutely nothing to do with it. The increase is occurring on private and state lands. In 2011, natural gas production on federal land dropped 11% and oil production dropped 14%. You bought one of the many lies Obama told in his energy speech last week.As far as the Oil thingy, I might point out the increase in leases, domestic production, and support for the industry...but you are already aware of these things, hopefully. I imagine you are linking the Keystone Pipeline to Oil in general, as it gives you a talking point from which to complain. I suppose you also blame Obama for Gas price increases as this fits the "Pattern".
If you actually decided to do a small bit of research on google, or god forbid read anything...you would note this patterned pretzel you are seeing, does not exist.
I would very much like a few more examples, preferably a few that are pertinent to the debate and question asked of you.
You were completely right in your last statement though........... lack of research and gulping the party line is no excuse for ignorance.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Republicans cant even agree with Obama on issues THEY agree on. It's truly sad the average American who doesnt follow politics cant comprehend this. The Republican party had one goal in mind after the 10' mid terms..... make a giant human wall so Obama can get nothing accomplished. That's not called governing, its called holding America's government hostage for religious ideology. The thought of these people have the slightest chance....and when I say this I mean SLIGHTEST..... for complete control of the government makes me want to re-new my passport as soon as possible. Before we know it, mexicans will be shot on sight and going to college will be frowned upon. I knew one day the Republican party would begin to show its true colors but I had no idea they would do it willingly.

Bill Clinton gets it. Geez...I wish we could make him president again. Say what you want about his faults, the man was a leader, not the vapid, empty suit shadow currently residing in the WH. He very clearly expressed the need for production of North American fuel resources. He also discussed the concerns over the abandonment of green energy fuel alternatives...valid concerns. The high price of oil today isnt caused what is currently available, it is caused by uncertainty and the futures market. if the US and Canada take an aggressive pro-development posture with regard to NA oil and fuel resources, the Persian Gulf Oil concerns would not vanish...but they would certainly have less of an impact on the markets.
