Obama Lies About Oil & Gas Production on Public Land
Contrary to President Obama’s assertions, Romney’s telling the truth when he says,‘Production of oil on public land is down 14 percent and production of gas on public land is down 9 percent.’ That’s because energy production on federal lands is down compared to 2010, according to the Energy Information Administration.”(Juliet Eilperin,“The Truth About Oil And Gas Production On Public Land,” The Washington Post’ s Fact Check, 10/16/12)
Romney was incorrect when he said production on federal land was down under Obama.

His stats were just for 2011. But over all three years reported, production is up under Obama on federal land.

Romney lied. He stated stats for just one year.

Fact Check said this. they said Romney's numbers were right but they also said Obama was right.

I see you conveniently lefty out that part. That's because you are just another dishonest right whiner.

Countdown to the third Presidential candidate debate...
Only four days.
1.Will Obama confront Romney’s repeated accusations of him being a weak apologist?
2.Will Romney have a foreign policy that does not involve U.S. military intervention in the Middle East?
Why would he? WTH--this is America-NOT a temple of al qeada barbarics worship.

2. He already does-and has already stated-he is AGAINST "wars" as much as any body else (uh-HELLO-sane, rational and logical--REAL world alert-not twist and distort bad guys--al queda and Iran and Korea with their US facing missiles-- provides ENOUGH of that!)

But hey, you & Mitt Romney thinks cutting PBS will balance the budget & get this economy on track.
You see, increasing revenues by 28 billion in 2013, is nothing & not worth it. But cutting 400 million will save us all. Republican thinking at its best.

I'm glad you brought up that lie.
Obama did not lose 5 million jobs. The recession did.
From the first month in office, Obama lowered the monthly job losses & took them from 750,000 to zero. In basically 10 months.
During that time frame people lost jobs. It was pathetic, dishonest, and an outright blatant lie for Romney to blame those on Obama.
It shows what a liar Romney is.
4 years ago,. McCain ran on "I know how to win wars" & now we have Romney claiming he knows how to create jobs.
The exact same claim he made when he ran for governor of Massachusetts. They believed him. Over his term, the state lost 40,000 jobs & was 47th in job creation.
5 million jobs lost by the recession....

Do you mean the recession caused by the economic collapse caused by the Democrats' ludicrous subprime housing loan program that collapsed our economy after 2 years of direct oversight by the Democrats?
Thanks for clearing that up for us.

"It was pathetic, dishonest, and an outright blatant lie for Romney to blame those on Obama."

Can you kindly explain to us why the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse gave so much bribe money to Obama, in the entire Congress only Christopher Dodd received more than Obama; and why these financial institutions that collapsed our economy gave that much money to Obama; and why you think there is not a link between Obama becoming president and all the money these institutions that collapsed our economy and gave a fortune in bribe money to Obama getting all the money they lost in the economic collapse they caused back PLUS enough money to purchase banks that didn't participate in the Democrats' idiotic subprime loan program but were devastated by the economic collapse.

Please explain this.

My question to women like you is "how did you get so ignorant in four years"? you are doing nothing for society as a proponent for brilliant women. If this is the mind set you have... how could anyone possibly take you serious for a high positioned job? you have failed before you start. Women with a brain say 'you are fired'!

Pres Obama, gasoline prices, and Romney's policy may lead to $1.86 a gallon gasoline if you vote for him...
"Well, think about what the governor -- think about what the governor just said. He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80,$1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse, because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression, as a consequence of some of the same policies that Governor Romney's now promoting. So, it's conceivable that Governor Romney could bring down gas prices because with his policies, we might be back in that same mess."
They dropped to 1.86 because of the recession. A point Mitt Romney, the great & wonderful businessman, was too stupid to comprehend.

Romney is so f*cking stupid, he does not know what a sudden drop in demand does to prices.

Candy’s not dandy
October 17, 2012

Media bias is more often sensed than seen, but America got its faced rubbed in it Tuesday night — by debate “moderator” Candy Crowley.

CNN’s Crowley selected both questions and questioners — both of which largely skewed left. She let President Obama dominate, giving him 4 minutes and 18 seconds more speaking time.

She interrupted Obama nine times, but she squelched Mitt Romney fully 28 times — repeatedly cutting him off just as he was scoring points. Once she told him to shut up, telling him:“See all these people? They’ve been waiting for you. Make it short.”

She never did that to Obama.

She flat-out ordered:“If I could have you sit down, Gov. Romney”— but never asked the equally aggressive Obama to sit.

When Romney tried to respond at several points, she cut him off, saying “it doesn’t quite work like that” and promising to “give you a chance” later on.

Needless to say, she never did.

But the most blatant evidence of bias was her instant “fact checking” of Romney’s quite correct insistence that Obama took weeks to call the Benghazi debacle a terrorist attack. She jumped to Obama’s defense, saying “he did call it an act of terror.”

But she was flat-out wrong.

Which is why a grinning Obama urged:“Can you say that a little louder, Candy?”

But Obama’s reference was to generic “acts of terror” and framed in the context of the 9/11 attacks of 2001— and not the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi atrocity.

Not until 17 days later — after endless administration distortions — did Obama acknowledge that it was a planned attack.

Yesterday, Crowley belatedly acknowledged,“The president did not say it was ... an act of terror.” But the damage was done.

Ironically, though, not so much to Romney — even the most casual observer long knew the facts — but to Crowley herself.

And to the media.

It has long had its thumb on the scale — but rarely so publicly, nor so shamelessly.

Way to go, Ms. Crowley.
