The last program, which came from President George W. Bush, ended just this year, meaning the production increase is mostly attributable to Obama’s predecessor.
How many times have we heard his spiel about oil production being up, up , up under his watch?

Not so much, huh? His predecessor gets the credit for that.

There he goes again;

Obama OKs Oil Exploration Along Atlantic Coast, But Not Drilling - ABC News

Quote:
Obama delayed and then cancelled a planned 2011 drilling lease sale for areas off the Virginia coast following the BP oil spill in the Gulf.

There are also no guarantees the administration will approve drilling permits at the end of the environmental review.

“The president’s actions have closed an entire new area to drilling on his watch and cheats Virginians out of thousands of jobs,” said Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., who chairs the House Natural Resources Committee.
We have never had an administration that hates "big evil oil" as much as this one. This administration will try it's best to cripple the industry into submission, to create a vision of what only a far left environmental nut would love.

Here are the ACTIONS this president has taken since taking office that fly in the face of his "all of the above" energy strategy;

Administration Oil Strategy Contributes to Price Increases

Nothing but new taxes, cancelling of leases and dictating vast, energy rich areas...off limits.

Can there be any other conclusion? This president despises the commodity that has been the single greatest factor in advancing and lifting economies the world over.

Obama's reliance on foreign oil is hilarious. At least the UK is considering thorium, across parties. Obama's energy policy is a goddamn trainwreck. The media still love him though.

The Ministry of Truth reports that peace is war, ignorance is strength, and Obama is responsible for increasing domestic energy production.

Wow I wonder if Canada and the U.S. can join in and all 3 nations can develop it jointly and spread the costs of building and testing the Reactors out 3 ways... As that would make the most Economic sense and we would all benifit from it...

It is time we start building a bunch of new safe 21st Century Gen IV Nuclear Reactors ASAP............

I agree...but remember...nuclear is also off-limits to the greens. Only solar and wind are the right and proper future in energy.

Labor, business, Canada - all very much FOR this project, because they know it will create jobs.
