70% of American voters disagree with Barack Obama and favor increased access to oil and gas resources.
API.org reported:

Seventy percent of American voters favor increased access to U.S. oil and natural gas resources, and similar numbers believe more oil and natural gas development would provide major benefits to the nation, including more U.S. jobs, according to a new poll released today.

“Voters know developing more of America’s homegrown energy makes sense for our economy and our energy security,” said API President and CEO Jack Gerard. “Our economy will demand large amounts of oil and natural gas for at least several more decades even as the role of alternative energy increases. Common sense says we should have Americans producing that oil and gas here at home as much as possible.”

The recent API telephone poll, conducted by Harris Interactive, among 1,005 registered voters found that large majorities believe that more U.S. oil and natural gas development could lead to more American jobs (87 percent), help the U.S. economy and reduce consumer energy costs (83 percent), increase the nation’s energy security (82 percent), and deliver more revenue to the government (72 percent). Over two-thirds (70 percent) believe that some in Washington are intentionally delaying domestic oil and natural gas development, potentially hurting the economy and leading to higher energy costs for consumers.

Nebraska’s Republican Gov. Dave Heineman told The Politico Obama made a mistake by rejecting the Keystone Pipeline.

    Along with JOBS, this should be a top campaign topic to hammer the vermin in the WH with.

    It would not make a difference if 99.9% of the people disagree with him, he’ll do as he damned well pleases. His arrogance knows no bounds. Hail Caesar and all that crap.

    Jimmy Carter made the mistake, Obama is doing

    This on purpose. Both will get you fired as the

    “average” citizen knows who caused his pain.

    I just laugh, women and minorities hardest hit.

    You know, the dumb asses that voted for the

    Black guy. Racist morons, best like at the candidates

    fruit. Obama had NONE.

    Powder is dry, chumps.

    What really chaps me is this moron claimed that extending the unemployment benefits and the whopping 2% payroll tax cut would create more jobs than building the pipeline. Unbelievable that no one is challenging him on such an idiotic statement. Americans should be furious over this!

    This is probably Obama’s biggest mistake. I hope the Republicans realize it.

    Destroy, Disarm, & Demise. The “unknown Marxist Moslem” in the White House is just following the plan. If this is not your plan for America, then vote this creep out.

  • Joanne

    Maybe, finally, people will see that Obama really does want to destroy America’s economy. For some reason, a lot of people have been unable to comprehend this.

  • Gus

    Face it folks, Obama is a nice man, and just wants what’s best for the “Motherland”.

    Face it people. The demoRats won’t be happy until gas is 10 bucks a gallon. That way they get more in tax dollars to give to their donors and the public employment unions.

    the average age of americans autos is 10.8 years probably making them quite possibly gas hogs. i doubt that they’re owned by the well heeled obama voter.

    #19. My car is 14 years old and runs like a top because I take very good care of it. I cannot afford to buy another one right now anyway. I get about 16 miles per gal in the city which is fine by me. I would like to see an increase in oil production here, as well as the new pipeline so folks can purchase whatever vehicle they want. Gas guzzler or a wimpy “green” car.

    And BTW, it’s a Ford.
