Are they all fake, or just Obama's?
No sure where I said anything was fake? However, there is a big difference when someone can regulate what the government owns and cannot enforce the same rules on private land....

There you go, leases granted. Did they find oil? Who knows. Was Obama stopping them from trying? Doesn't look like it.

But it increased overall. Why didn't Obama stop this? He's anti energy, right? Even though he's granting simiilar amounts of leases on Federal lands as Bush did. Doesn't seem very anti-energy to me.

IF he had any CONTROL over State and Private property, he probably would have stopped it just like he placed a 30 year moratorium on off-shore drilling.

Obama DID give Brazil a nice chunk of Stimulus money to help THEM drill for oil.

and Brazil turned around and made a deal with China for that oil we gave them money to get!!!
