I Hope Every Unemployed Oil Rig Worker From LA to Oklahoma is There Today

To warmly welcome Buffoon Barack and His Traveling Road Show. I’d just lurve the optics shaken, not stirred for once in his orchestrated little existence.

Obama’s Keystone XL Visit A Potemkin Village Photo-Op

Politics: The president stages a photo-op in Oklahoma to take credit for the portion of the Keystone XL pipeline that doesn’t need his approval and for oil production on private and state lands beyond his jurisdiction.

If one of his aides some morning remarked on a particularly lovely sunrise, it wouldn’t surprise us if President Obama responded with a “thank you,” so gifted is he in taking credit for successes that he has nothing to do with and that occur despite, not because, of his policies.

OMG, if THAT isn’t the QotD, I don’t know what is.

Hmmm. Looks like the natives share my sentiments:

…Still, we hope Obama’s time here will be instructive, that Oklahoma’s energy leaders have an opportunity to tell the president how the cow ate the cabbage when it comes to the real world of energy as opposed to the idealized world that Obama touts.

Those leaders face a punitive tax increase from Obama. Their use of hydraulic fracturing is under attack. The Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to Cushing is on indefinite hold. Meantime, the U.S. Department of Energy — despite the Solyndra debacle — remains keen on speculative alternative energy ventures.

Is it just us or would Obama’s green energy evangelism be more convincing if he either kept Air Force One parked more often or used electric vehicles for surface transit?

Obama Caught Fibbing at Oil Field

Domestic oil production overall in the U.S. is at its highest level in the past eight years, according to the Energy Department.

But production on federal lands was down 14 percent year-over-year in 2011, and overall remains 13 percent lower than it was in 2003.

Still, Obama – who has made renewable energy a hallmark of his administration — insisted he’s not backing away from drilling or searching for more oil.

“You wouldn’t know it from listening to some of these folks running for office, but producing more oil here in our own country has been, and will continue to be, a key part of our energy strategy,” Obama said.

“We’re drilling all over the place,” he said.

    “Fibbing” is what a child does. Obama is lying through his teeth.

    Obama is spewing enough bullshit from his mouth to fertilize the Sahara Desert.
