Empty Boast: As we have noted before in our Issues & Insights pages, President Obama has taken credit for an energy boom he had nothing to do with. A government agency now confirms what many have known to be true.
The Congressional Research Service has released a report, "U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production in Federal and Non-Federal Areas," that corroborates what we've said.

I have said all along that 57 state, teleprompter Obumbo is mostly a sock puppet for a few rich fat cats like Soros, Buffet, and other assorted Communist overlords.
There is nothing in his past that indicates that he is anything close to being an intellectual genius.
Absolutely nothing of any value will ever come out of the Obama regime. All the boasts from the left (think Alan Colmes) are hilarious but low info voters still believe them.
The energy policy of this jackass is costing us tens of billions of dollars. They should be in prison for using green companies as fronts to funnel billions of tax dollars to big dollar democrat donors. We have a pathetic government that is as corrupt as the UN and other third world dumps.
The boy Kenyan couldn’t run a taco stand without someone else to do all the work and count out the change for him.
He’s an utter and complete fraud foisted on America by the communist democrats.
By the way, Barry, what the hell is a ‘corpsman’ anyway?
“Hes an utter and complete fraud foisted on America by the communist democrats.”
Sadly, half of the US population is no better....total idiots
for re-electing him.
That is why I have no plans to return to the USSA.
I am not into fighting fellow US citizens, unlike the “dog in a manger” FReepers who are critical of my not being there to suffer with them.
The Marxist are in full control of education and the media in the USSA.
Just how does one fight that?
This Muslim con-man didn’t even write his own books which have made him 10 million dollars. Bill Ayers did
It’s a little difficult to foment a Marxist revolution if the people are free to move around the country at will.
It’s only surprising that Americans haven’t yet been required to obtain travel permits to move outside their homes.
When do we get our gasoline ration booklets?
