Obama Vows to Drill “Everywhere We Can”… Except ANWR, Florida, Virginia, The Continental Shelf, Utah, Alaska and Ohio

Obama lied to the American public again yesterday saying his administration would “drill everywhere we can.”

The Obama Administration has blocked oil drilling and development in:
** 60 sites in Utah
** Outer Continental Shelf
** Virginia
** Ohio killing 200,000 jobs
** Off Florida, where Cuba is drilling
** Alaska

…Not to mention the Keystone Pipeline.

So when Obama says he is going to drill everywhere, he really means pretty much nowhere.
The Hill reported, via Free Republic:

If you hear anybody on TV saying that somehow we are against drilling for oil, then you will know that they either don’t know what they are talking about or they are not telling you the truth,” Obama said, against the backdrop of oil production facilities outside Maljamar, N.M.

“We are drilling all over the place,” Obama added, reading from a speech on his podium on a windy afternoon. “That’s the reason we have been able to reduce our dependence on foreign oil every year since I took office.”

While Obama has repeated in recent days that there’s no “silver bullet” that can currently ease the price at the pumps, he vowed that his administration will make oil-and-gas development a continued priority as part of a wider strategy focused on traditional and alternative energy. “You have my word that we will keep drilling everywhere we can and we will do it while protecting the health and safety of the American people,” Obama said, speaking with no jacket or tie. “That’s a commitment that I make.”

The White House has struggled in recent days to win the debate on gas prices, with Obama appearing at college campuses and manufacturing facilities to tout his energy strategy.

Wednesday’s appearance in New Mexico reflected a pivot of sorts as the White House looked to change the optics on the issue.

It’s a good thing the media is in his pocket or he would have a much harder time trying to fool the American people.

    Does any body believe what he says anymore? He can’t be a Christian and say the things he says. Lie after lie . It has gotten to the point that it is sad to watch.

    If he were a Republican SNL would chew him up.

    The unemployment number in North Dakota,where they are drilling every where is something like 3%. Just drill and the unemployment goes up,gas prices go down. I am no economist but that is obvious to the 99 percenters.

    Nothing more than a communist and a shameless political opportunist- nothing more or nothing less. Has he ever told the truth about any policy or decision in the last 3 years? The answer is no. When he thinks that the issue is mute or run its course, it either gets thrown under the bus or ignored. All this story is just that- a story. Propaganda running its course

    I’m guessing that finding oil “everywhere we can,” has the same intent as OJ’s promise to look high and low for his wife’s killer, and with the same result.

    Cuba is drilling off coast of Florida, Russia off the Gulf and yet, Obama has been saying his administration is doing more drilling than ever. HE LIES. It is because of Bush!!!


    Media matters liberal Propaganda Sites lose Big Donor

    You may not be aware of the name “Democracy Alliance,” but you know who they are. It’s an organization that gathers liberal 1%ers and tells them which other leftist organizations they should give their tax-deductible “charitable” donations to. George Soros? Yup. Founding member of the Democracy Alliance. It was founded as a way to control where liberal 1% money would go so that it would have the most impact. Apparently, recent decisions on where the money goes has left a certain major donor – Peter Lewis, founder of Progressive Insurance – with a bad taste in his mouth.


    Soros btw owns oil in Brazil

  • retire05

    Is Obama right in that oil production is up? No. Is he correct in that he is doing everything he can to increase production? No.

    The reason production is up is because most of the oil is coming from private, not federal, lands. So in order to hinder the private land production, enter the lizard. Why? It is estimated that the Eagle Fork area, because of fracking, could produce as much as 5 million BPD. That equates to more than all the oil supplied by ME countries.

    Also, notice that Obama never talks about WHO provides us with the most oil. He talks about “foreign” oil, but never mentions that most of the “foreign oil” is supplied by Canada and Mexico.

    Texas refineries are the biggest producer of the “designer” fuels that are required by California. These refineries should tell California that they will produce ONE grade of gasoline, and if California doesn’t want it, well then, do without. The cost of producing designer gasoline is driving up the cost. Also, the Obama administration, especially Ken Salazar (idiot) could approve the refinery expansions requested by the Texas refineries but have constantly declined approval.

    This poseur occupying the Oval Office has one plan; kill the U.S. petroleum industry so that we become more reliant on his Muslim brothers for crude.

    BHO “You have my word that we will keep drilling everywhere we can.”

    Just like his line “you ca keep your health care plan if you like it”. well, you won’t like it anymore after he raises its costs.

    So, he is just a tad more subtle than Bill Clinton, who asked someone to define the word “is”.

    In BHO’s case, it is the word “can” which needs to be parsed.

    Obama is either delusional or a bold faced liar. I hate name calling and labeling people, so I’ll just say that he should find a job that he’s good at and do it. Since he’s failed so miserably as POTUS maybe being a CEO should also be stricken from his potential job list.

    Obama says he’s added pipeline ‘to encircle Earth and then some’

    As gasoline prices continue to rise, President Obama on Thursday pushed back on attacks from Republicans that he is blocking the Keystone XL oil pipeline and is against drilling, arguing his administration has added enough new oil-and-gas pipelines to “encircle the Earth and then some.”

    Obama highlighted his support for the southern leg of the controversial Keystone pipeline, which would carry oil from Cushing, Okla., to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

    Appearing before a backdrop of oil pipelines in Cushing, Obama said he was making construction a priority through an executive order issued Thursday that instructs federal agencies to expedite their review of the southern portion of the pipeline.

    “Today, I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucratic hurdles and make the project a priority,” said Obama, who earlier this year rejected a GOP bid to force construction on the full pipeline, which would stretch from Alberta to the Gulf Coast.

    Republicans quickly dismissed the speech and the executive order as a public relations stunt.

    “The approvals needed for this portion are so minor and routine that frankly only a desperate administration would inject the president into the process,” Brendan Buck, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), said in a statement, noting that approval of the southern portion of the project doesn’t require presidential approval.

    The Cushing speech is the latest in a two-day, four-state tour meant to tout the president’s energy plan and undercut GOP attacks over high gas prices. The White House is trying to change the optics of the issue to the president’s advantage, putting Obama in front of a field of solar panels on Wednesday and oil piping on Thursday.

    I’ll do you one better. Today he said that he is going to do everything in his power to cut through the red tape and get the Keystone pipeline done. We have a Liar-in-Chief, and I’ve honestly never seen anyone who can absolutely flat-out lie like he does and never bat an eyelash over it. Words mean NOTHING to him. Nothing. He will say whatever he has to say to whomever he has to say it and none of it has to be based in reality at all. Will ANYONE, ANYONE call him on this AT ALL? Anyone?

    The Green Energy Nightmare — Obama is out of touch

    Despite the fact that the U.S. is in the middle of rising gasoline price crisis, Obama has continued his “green” energy tour to promote the need to “double-down” on investing in these new sources. Let’s let look at the successes of his energy policies:

    CBS News reported that Obama “invested” $6.5 billion dollars in 12 green energy companies now facing financial hardship. The following companies have filed for bankruptcy:

    Solyndra: $535 million in federal money and has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
    Beacon Power of Massachusetts: $43 million in federal money, $5 million in state money; Paid $23,000 in bonuses to 65 employees during the bankruptcy process
    Evergreen Solar of Massachusetts: Received $31 million in state aid, Unknown amount of federal money, owes $485.6 million in debt — to hire about 100 people or $310,000 for each potential job in state money. (Obviously, the cost would go up dramatically if we knew how much federal money they got).
    SpectraWatt of New York State: $500,000 in federal money while paying out $745,000 in executive bonuses
    Eastern Energy of New York State (an AES subsidiary): Received a $17.1 million loan while Media Matters runs a story (anyone shocked?) saying that the company that got the loan did not go bankrupt using this link to the DoE as proof. (Oops! Even the DoE is trying to make the loan go away).
    Ener1 of Indiana: $118.5 million in federal money

    Even the DoE proudly touts on their website that they have provided $34.9 billion in loans to green energy companies/initiatives that have created (or saved) approximately 61,000 jobs. That works out to an average cost per job of $572,131.14

    By threating to default on our national debt, the Tea Party(extreme right wing Republicans) forced the President and the Democrats to allow them to borrow one trillion dollars to give it to the 2% wealthest in the form of a tax cut. Since the Tea Party has yet to come up with a way to pay for it the Obama Govt. has to borrow another trillion every year.

    But many of the posters on this blog are hate-filled bigots of the worst stripe.

    vicious, hate-filled rantings that are unworthy of ANY decent human being. Just a disgusting, despicablr, disgraceful excuse of an American or a human being, neither of which you are. Just a sick-in-head scumbag racist Klansman scum

    Reading the story and then the comments really puts things in perspective. This website, this author, and these readers define the shame that plagues this country. Liars, morons, and propagandists. You have absolutely NO integrity whatsoever.

    Anon and Cooky are blinded by their hate for the President. All this is, still, is sour grapes because you cant handle a black president who is a CATHOLIC! not a Muslim, as you’ve been told by Fox, WND and any other whack-a-doodle GOP candidate.

    Ah, so now we can add gay to the list of things Obama isn’t: Muslim, Communist, Nazi, Socialist, Foreigner and gay. Weren’t you guys just talking about honesty?

    He didn’t just say he wouldn’t follow unlawful orders, though. He specifically called Obama a liar and a “domestic enemy.” A soldier or Ameican who called his commanding officer a liar and a domestic enemy is a digusting disgrace of a Human Being and an American, something they are neither of. And if you can be court martialled for saying it about your commanding officer, how much more so for saying it about the Commander in Chief?

    Obama isn’t an elitist, anti-American, Socialist/Statist, and

    If the Republican party is not neo fascist, anti Semitic, racist, homophobic and xenophobic why also does it get so much support from those who are? The answer to one may be the answer to the other.

    Why are these men smiling as gas prices keep climbing?

    The truth about drilling permits issued by since Obama took office:
    If Obama is re-elected and continues to slow down the permitting process at the same rate he has so far, drilling would be down 96% over eight years.
