In the eight years since his election, President Obama has taken firm and resolute action in the area of energy production. That would be AGAINST energy production.
Check it out:
The US is experiencing an unprecedented boom in energy production in both oil and gas. Oil production has increased by 70% since 2008 and the US is now the #1 producer of natural gas in the world. You’d probably think that the President should get credit for that great accomplishment – and it IS a great accomplishment. If you’re thinking that, you’d be wrong. Dead wrong. In fact, the guys who are really responsible for the growth in US energy production are George W Bush and Dick Cheney.
Why Bush & Cheney? Because the entire increase comes from production on private or state owned land, and the driving force for the production is hydraulic fracturing, also known as “fracking.” Texas alone has oil production of 3 million barrels per day, and would be the 6th largest oil producer in the world by itself.
