Fox Round Table on Santorum

Paul Gigot big win for Santorum in Louisian, but the problem is he has to win outside the South.

Juan - Agrees with Paul. Romeny does better with upper income, more educated. Not sure how well he’ll even do in PA.

Hume - all Santorum can do is to deny Romney the nomination directly. That won’t play well with voters.

Kirsten Powers - race is where it is when it started. Romney keeps picking up delegates. Santorum is a real candidate, he’s won 11 states. It’s a long shot, though. Maybe he’s setting himself up for next time.

Half-truth #1: Oil production is the highest it has been in eight years.

Increased oil and gas production in the U.S. is a great development, but this is a result of increased production on private lands in North Dakota, Texas, and Alaska. On federal lands and offshore, the story is much grimmer. Production on federal lands and offshore could have yielded more output, increasing supply and therefore putting downward pressure on oil prices. Poor administrative decisions—such as refusing to open areas to exploration and production, cancelling or delaying lease sales, and the offshore drilling moratorium and subsequent “permitorium”—significantly reduced oil production, destroying jobs and reducing economic activity in the process.

If there is an economic interest to produce this oil, Washington should allow companies to do so. In North Dakota, oil production is booming and unemployment is low. There should be more stories like this.

Half-truth #2: Increasing oil production takes too long and would not impact the market for at least a decade.

This has been the mantra of the anti-drilling crowd for years, and the longer politicians listen to the message, the longer the nation’s oil resources will remain undeveloped. If access to areas that are currently off limits is increased, it will take time to explore and extract that oil. But that does not change the fact that the nation needs it today and also in the future. Furthermore, some of this oil can reach the market in much less than a decade if the permitting process is streamlined and the Keystone XL pipeline—which could bring up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada to the Gulf Coast refineries—is built.

SHOCK! Is David Gregory FINALLY doing his job as a so-called journalist and calling the Obamabots out on their lies?

Oh wait, I know why - it’s code for, “People are pissed off about the gas prices so we’re gonna help you guys do something about it by actually reporting some facts, regardless of your Marxist base, or you’ll lose in November - and we can’t have that - so wake up!”

Production of Oil, Gas and Coal on Federal Lands Sinks to Nine-Year Low

"The administration, meanwhile, has also taken several steps to limit production. Heritage’s Nick Loris noted these four steps taken by the Obama administration:

• Withdrew areas offered for 77 oil and gas leases in Utah that could cost American taxpayers millions in lost lease bids, production royalties, new jobs and the energy needed to offset rising imports of oil and natural gas.

• Cancelled lease sales in the Western Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic coast and delayed exploration off the coast of Alaska and kept other resource-rich areas off-limits.

• Finalized rules, first announced by Secretary Salazar on January 6, 2010, to establish more government hurdles to onshore oil and natural gas production on federal lands.

• Withdrew 61 oil and natural gas leases in Montana as part of a lawsuit settlement over climate change. “The big picture is clear that government policies undertaken by the Obama administration have produced a significant decline in offshore oil production on federal lands in fiscal year 2011,” the Institute for Energy Research said in response to last week’s updated EIA analysis. “That is certainly not a way to increase domestic production of oil and keep oil and thus gasoline prices in check.”

Great points, kabar. The pundits on each of the morning shows did take obama on (through Plouffe) on his stance on energy/gas prices. I was surprised.

I saw something earlier this weekend that showed the Obama administration forecasting that the national debt would be 900% of GDP by 2070, whereas the Paul Ryan plan calls more a more moderate growth and a balanced budget by the year 2040. No wonder people are not enthusiastic about Republican leadership. Taking 28 years to balance the budget is not fiscally responsible, it’s more of the same slow incremental strangulation of the economy.

Does anyone actually believe the “budget” will ever be balanced by either of these parties? For that matter, what budget? When is the last time there WAS a budget? Or, actually adhered to? Let’s face it, they just spend what they want to spend when they want to spend it and just print the greenbacks as they see fit.

It’s all one big game.

The Obama administration is actually pushing for more food stamp usage thru an aggressive advertising campaign and rewarding states with bonuses if they increase usage. Oregon got $5 million.

In its quest to promote taxpayer-funded entitlement programs, the Obama Administration has actually rewarded one state with a $5 million bonus for its efficiency in adding food-stamp recipients to already bulging rolls. It’s part of the administration’s campaign to eradicate “food insecure households” by improving access and increasing participation in the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Incidentally, the program was recently changed to SNAP to eliminate the stigma that comes with a name like food stamps.

Just a few months ago the federal agency that administers the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), launched a multi-million-dollar initiative to recruit more food-stamp participants even though the number of recipients has skyrocketed in the last few years.This week Oregon officials bragged that the USDA has given the state $5 million in “performance bonuses” for ensuring that people eligible for food benefits receive them and for its “swift processing of applications.” The money comes on the heels of a separate $1.5 million award from the feds for making “accurate payments of food stamp benefits to clients.” So welfare recipients are clients? .It marks the fifth consecutive year that Oregon has been “recognized” by the federal government for “exceptional administration” of the entitlement program, according to the announcement posted on the state’s Department of Human Services web site.

The obvious question is should Newt move over so Rick can solidify the conservatives? I am for Newt but it is obvious he can’t win even in the South.

That drop happened right during the time he said “the Cambridge police acted stupidly” by defending his old, racist professor, Henry Louis Gate.

Good info, AB. Not sure there will be a one-to-one resemblance here but worth following.

Speaking of Oregon, we filed our 4 petitions to bring Light Rail to a vote of the cities it will go through. The Portland mayor was bragging he will be bringing suitcases of money back from DC since we are the model they want to copy.

Our petitions just derailed that model.

What I find laughable is Obama claiming credit for increased oil production, the highest in 8 years. Federal versus private lands aside, how can anyone claim credit for oil production in three and 1/2 years when it takes at least 5 to 10 years from exploration and discovery to production. We will see Obama’s influence years from now. Obama inherited the Bush policies on increased production, which are bearing fruit now.

Brokered convention ? How about the recently upgraded Dick Cheney ? Let me be the first to suggest it. A perfect mix of conservatism and establishment.

He'd do it, too, with a competent VP who could takeover as soon as he pardoned Scooter.

You know better than I, but from what I have read, Oregon is going thru a tough patch of unemployment and many of the progressive liberal policies are making the situation worse. Politically, can Oregon be coming to its senses or will the Dems continue to prevail?

One thing I did not hear this morning was, "why do (at least) most of the speculators speculate that the price of oil will continue to rise?"

Now the real reason is that the regulatory environment in the USA is geared to higher prices, but that would not play into the liberal media agenda, so they collectively forget it. Besides, they would probably have to be smarter than they are to figure that out. Or at least have some basic understanding of market forces and economics that did not come from Paul Krugman.

To a very great extent, Rush Limbaugh is absolutely correct in his use of the “Magic Negro” meme. That didn't come from Rush, as we know, but from a BLACK writer for the Los Angeles Times.

-- He thinks they are gullible enough and have more White Guilt to vote for him again. --

That's a very safe bet on his part.
