production on federal lands fell by 14 percent in fiscal year 2011 (after a 15 percent increase the year before). But overall, oil production on federal lands saw an increase of 1 percent during the last five fiscal years.

<quoted text>The United States will overtake Saudi Arabia to become the world's biggest oil producer before 2020, and will be energy independent 10 years later, according to a new forecast by the International Energy Agency.
The first part I believe could come true if Obama wasn't trying to push the green energy agenda so hard. He only wants us energy independent if, and only if, we do it without oil. I would suspect that all his cronies, like Al Gore, have a monopoly on green energy. That way they all get filthy rich and claim they are saving the planet. We all know the oil industry is the sole reason for all of our greenhouse gasses and global warming because Obama said so. I'm sure he doesn't have an alterior motive.

Wht makes you think they don't
Plain and simple. Look at how much of our tax dollars Obama is pouring into green energy. If he didn't have a problem with oil he would simply allow these companies to do the research slowly to perfect the technology. instead he pours billions of our tax dollars into green energy companies that everyone knew was going to fail. Some even warned the White House against such investments. He's pushing too hard, too fast to be totally accepting of the oil industry. He wants them out and he wants them out now but he knows he can't because so much of what we have depends on oil. Such a transition will take decades and Obama simply doesn't want to wait that long.

You should do a little research before you start throwing ou these Republican talking points.
Despite the one-year drop in production, oil production on federal and Indian lands from 2009 through 2011 totaled 2.027 million barrels. That's an average of 675,000 barrels per year during Obama's term, compared to an average annual production of 609,000 barrels annually during Bush's last term.
But it is an overstatement to say that "all of the increase" has been on private lands -- since, by definition, new permits and licenses have been granted for federal lands (bringing in more gas and oil).
Romney's claim that Obama's administration has "cut the number of permits and licenses in half" for federal lands is also not on the mark

What Republican said what I just said? Did I say "all of the increases" or did you add that yourself? For someone who prides themselves on citing sources, you sure don't mind inserting things you need to change the meanings to fit your "counterpoints". The question is, do you believe the "new and improved" post after you have edited it? I think you do.

If you can somehow force a liberal into a point- counterpoint argument, his retorts will bear no relation to what you've said -- unless you were in fact talking about your looks, your age, your weight, your personal obsessions, or whether you are a fascist. In the famous liberal two-step, they leap from one idiotic point to the next, so you can never nail them. It's like arguing with someone with Attention Deficit Disorder.

From your post;
Romney exaggerated, however, when he claimed the number of new permits and new leases for drilling on federal lands declined by half. The decline isn’t that steep,
And you exaggerate a little when you insinuate that Obama is doing a good job, but the big difference is that Romney's exaggeration didn't hurt anyone and your's is killing us.

I said "Republican talking points"

A simple definition of talking points is a short list of statements that summarize the organization's stand on a particular issue, or an explanation.

Most people would not relate the term, "talking points", to one individual.


I did not edit anything, if you will look those two post had the two different sources, both drawing the same conclusion.

Tell you what, I do believe I fit your description of a Liberal.

I will happily volunteer to engage you in a QUOTE,

"point- counterpoint" debate any time of your choosing, and then

let us determine how much of your theory is correct, and see if

you can match wits with this "ADD" type of person .

Then again you are acting like you did not know that.

You make it hard to give you the benefit of the doubt, when you keep taking it away.

BTW- I know you are not "The cabbit", that was why I addressed you in the latter part of that post.

Because you use a quote from someone what the hell makes you think the person who used it thinks they are that person, or claiming to be like him?

THE ANSWER- its the pretentious personality of the author.

I guess obama thinks his Socialist utopia will be better. He fashions himself savior of the poor and disenfranchised. Like most liberals, he does not want to accept the harsh realities of life. He made it under America's "unfair" system, so that makes him a hypocrite by wanting to "fundamentally transform" America. As for Obama's family, they will have it made, no matter how horrible the economic conditions get. His plans already in place, and those yet to come, will also crush the very people he is claiming to help. All it takes for our economy to go into turmoil is the Arab countries refuse to take U.S. dollars for payment for oil or China to refuse to lend us more money. Obama seems to be sincere in helping the downtrodden, but I believe he works for those who are trying to bring about a New World Order. He is a very dangerous man.

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?


Body count: In the last six months 500 killed (murdered) in Chicago.


More school age children shot and killed than the recent massacre in Connecticut.


221 killed in Iraq - AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.


President: Barack Hussein Obama


Senator: Dick Durbin


House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.


Governor: Pat Quinn


House leader: Mike Madigan


State Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)


Mayor of Chicago: Rahm Emanuel


The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.


All who you can thank for the combat zone in Chicago.


Of course, they're all blaming each other.


Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!


Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.


Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!


State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.


Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!


Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.


Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!


This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.


And he is going to 'FIX' Washington politics for us??? What a crock of dog squeeze......


George Ryan is no longer Governor, as he is now in the big house (prison). Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is... that's right, also in the big house. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to... that's right, the big house.


The Land of Lincoln is now where their ex-governors make license plates.


But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.


Oh Yeah, and don’t forget, don’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

King was an admitted adulterer. He was busted with other women many times. This made him a lousy father. He lied to his wife and to his family. He cheated those closest to him. A man who will lie to his wife will lie to EVERYBODY else. That is a fact. Sorry to burst your little hero king bubble. He was a PATHETIC human being.
He started countless riots, Who knows how many were killed because of king. And how many millions of dollars in tax money went down the toilet because of king. To blacks hero's come very cheap. Yes he was a PATHETIC human being no doubt.
