The world's biggest narcissist has burned through his meager reserve of quietude. He cannot stand the adoration being heaped upon his successor and has bolted from the tradition of past Presidential dignity and restraint from comment.
He wants you to notice him again. His ego is four quarts low and needs refilling.
He wants you to know that he deserves the credit for things he didn't do. He wants you to believe that he is responsible for America being the world's leading oil producer.
obama blocked offshore oil drilling in the Atlantic and the Arctic.
obama was against fracking.
He conducted a war on oil:
President Barack Obamas enemies have long accused him of waging a war on coal. But a very different war on oil and gas is coming next.(He also said America has a "great smugness" about wealth and status. There is no one more smug about his own highfalutin status and the guy who once famously said "At some point you've made enough money" is shoving millions into his pockets every month.)
The newest phase of Obamas environmental agenda has the oil and natural gas industry in its crosshairs, with plans to curb greenhouse gas pollution from rigs and refineries, tighten oversight of drilling on public lands and impose a strict ozone limit that industry lobbyists slam as the most expensive regulation ever.
The administration still might hand some modest victories to the industry along the way as early as Friday, for example, the Interior Department may give Shell Oil a final green light for expanded drilling off Alaskas Arctic coast. And unlike the massive climate rule that the EPA issued for power plants last week, the administrations actions on oil and gas will be quieter, more piecemeal and harder to track.
Still, the oil industrys top lobbying group says its facing a regulatory avalanche or a tidal wave one that some of Obamas critics have been bracing for.
The administration has ridden this horse as far as it wants to ride it, GOP energy lobbyist and strategist Mike McKenna said in an interview, tying the oil and gas crackdown to Obamas efforts to make wind and solar power more competitive. He said Obama and his team have always been very clear-eyed about their strategy: they want to make affordable, dependable, traditional fuels like oil, gas and coal more expensive. This is just the natural rush at the finish line.
But greens say its past time for Obama to start reining in oil and gas as the next step in the climate legacy that hes made such a priority for his second term. For these activists, the EPAs power plant rules represented only a down payment.

4 QUARTS LOW...LOL
Mr. Solar panels and Chevy Volt proving everyday what a buffoon he is.
Erase everything Obama from History.
How the hell did we get through 8 years of that piece of $#!+ ??
He made oil bigger by destroying coal.
What’s that thing that looks like it’s about to attack him?
Is it endangered?
OBAMA, YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!!!
Make America AMERICAN! AGAIN! ~ BRING 0BAMA To Justice NOW!!!!!!!!!!!+
Obama was a zero when he was born, when he was POTUS, and as he is now, this very minute. Read my lips...Obama is a total “ZERO” and, always will be!!!
Obama thinks he is a legend in his own time.....but the reality is, he nothing but a sick legend in his pea brain mind!!!
My friends-he really believes it. So do his followers. This is what we’re up against. Counter: How many pipelines did you approve of?
Socialist through and through - yall didnt do that - the people did it - thats why Im a community organizer - because I tell the people ehay to do to make their lives better.
Bingo! And I have to thank you for pointing this out cuz I was really wondering what was going on.
Obama is so full of $%^t its coming out of his ears. He stopped the pipeline he was against fracking, he closed federal lands to drilling, etc. What a lying SOB he continues to be.
Seems to me 0bama is right on this.
I mean, if the choice of who is responsible for a success between won whom has a nobel peace prize, and one who has not, it’s gotta be the won.
In a way Obama does deserve some credit.
His war on coal and other energy forms raised the oil prices and the market decided experimenting with fracking economical in response.
However, Nobody should believe that Obama intentionally created a market environment to increase oil production in the US. All of the evidence is that this was an unintended consequence of Obama policies.
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it....................
