While all the time putting as many roadblocks in the way of us producing our own. From The Daily Caller.com

 

Obama attacked for favoring Middle Eastern oil

….. Now HERE is a way for you, BECS, to FIX some of the shit you’ve screwed up. Get busy.

President Obama is being attacked by Republicans for promising to “ensure the  free flow” of oil from the Middle East, while his administration is restricting  oil and gas development at home.

“Hold on, more oil from the Middle East — did I hear that correctly?” asked  Louisiana Republican Sen. David  Vitter, in  response to the president’s U.N. address Tuesday. “There is an abundance of  domestic and North American energy that is still off limits because of this  Administration, and we need to ensure a free flow of that – not Middle Eastern  oil.”

Obama expressed  his concerns over disrupting oil shipments from the turbulent Middle East,  saying that supply shocks could “destabilize the entire global economy.”

“We will ensure the free flow of  energy from the region to the world,” Obama told the United Nations. “Although America is  steadily reducing our own dependence on imported oil, the world still depends on  the region’s energy supply, and a severe disruption could destabilize the entire  global economy.”

While Obama promises to stabilize world oil markets, his administration has  presided over rapidly declining oil and gas production on federal lands. At the  same time, oil and gas production on state and private lands is  skyrocketing.

Federal lands produced 31 percent less oil in 2012 than they did in 2011, reports the Energy Information  Administration, while oil production on state and private lands increased by 15  percent.

Natural  gas production on federal lands has also fallen dramatically over the years — falling by 33  percent since 2007. Natural gas production on federal lands now only makes up  15.5 percent of total U.S. production — down from 24.9 percent in 2009.

During the 2012 campaign, Obama touted that his administration was presiding  over record-level oil and gas production. However, all of that increased  production was occurring on state and privately held lands, not on lands the  administration manages.

“We need to prioritize domestic energy production, instead of the  Administration’s expensive regulations and a mess of bureaucratic red tape that  only slow down and obstruct the long-term success of  American-grown energy businesses,” Vitter added.

The Obama administration is trying to repair its credibility in the Middle  East and alleviate concerns with regards to Iran and Syria, which already have  oil markets worried.

Signs that the Syrian conflict may be cooling have eased the upward pressure  on oil prices, but  markets will likely be watching for the UN’s response to the Syrian  conflict.

“If the U.N. does not take on the challenge and put Syria to a vote, another  line in the sand will be crossed and the United States’ hand will be forced to  take action or risk losing  whatever perceived power they might have left,” said David Greenberg, president  of Greenberg Capital, told CNBC.

What a misleading title. ATTACKED ? Come on, Mr. Bastasch, you are better than this. Do you REALLY believe this is an “attack”, or is it TELLING THE TRUTH ?  I believe the scant few repubs who are criticizing the idiot are spot-on, therefore, it is NOT an attack.

OK, here is what asshat says :  “We will ensure the free flow of  energy from the region to the world,” Obama told the United Nations. “Although America is  steadily reducing our own dependence on imported oil, the world still depends on  the region’s energy supply, and a severe disruption could destabilize the entire  global economy.”  But, HERE is what he DOES:  “While Obama promises to stabilize world oil markets, his administration has  presided over rapidly declining oil and gas production on federal lands. At the  same time, oil and gas production on state and private lands is  skyrocketing.” 

Oil and gas production on PRIVATE lands has absolutely gone bat-shit crazy, while production on FEDERAL-owned lands, mostly grabbed by the Clinton administration, have FALLEN by over 30%. What the hell kind of “policy” is THAT?

With the PROVEN safety record of “fracking”, or, hydraulic well fracturing, we now have the means to extract energy safely, more “environmentally friendly”, AND at lower cost. Which leads to more……. wait for it…. JOBS. You would think ANY political hack worth his salt would be on that like stink on shit.

Which, if we had SANE leadership, with a coherent energy policy, would LOWER our energy costs across the board, thus decreasing costs for damn near everything we use in our daily lives. Guess the democrats have something against lowering the cost of living.

Now the BEST part, a real bonus, is we could tell Sheikh Abdullah-el-Camelhumper  to take a hike. THAT would be the BEST bonus of all.

    He should be embarrassed. No one respects or likes him.
    It is a sad day when Russia’s Putin is more in favor than a U.S. Sitting President.

  2. According to various psych profiles done on ovomit, what he is doing here is “par for the course”. NO ONE has any more knowledge, wisdom or “intelligence” than the “emperor who has no clothes”, and flat out doesn’t realize it~!

    Blew hell out of my pissitivity meter, Clyde. You owe me~!

    This proves what I already thought – he cares more about his Saudi buddies than he does the people of the USA. Supporting foreign oil is the same as supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, terrorists and Islam.

    He is one of them. He may as well be wearing the robes and the towel on his head, because he sure as hell can’t relate to the guys in the second picture.

    Rumor has it that the Saudis paid Zero’s freight bill through college. He owes them.

    Good post.
