Who is “we” Mr. President?

Today, in his usual fashion, President Obama tried to pretend  he was doing something he’s not:

"So do not tell me that we’re not drilling. We’re drilling all over this country. There are a few spots we’re not drilling. We’re not drilling in the national mall. We’re not drilling at your house. "

We’re not drilling on most federal land either, whether onshore or offshore.  And where we are, production is down significantly.

And that’s just a fact, Jack.

  • He was in high division mode today. Erecting straw men, jousting nobly and with self-aggrandizing flourishes, pissing on both rational people and the truth. What a terrible, terrible mistake. Is his regime STILL in contempt of the Federal court in Louisiana?

  • Obama has chosen almost always to limit production. He canceled leases on federal lands in Utah, suspended them in Montana, delayed them in Colorado and Utah, and canceled lease sales off the Virginia coast.

    His administration also has been slow-walking permits in the Gulf of Mexico, approving far fewer while stretching out review times, according to the Greater New Orleans Gulf Permit Index. The Energy Dept. says Gulf oil output will be down 17% by the end of 2013, compared with the start of 2011. Swift Energy President Bruce Vincent is right to say Obama has “done nothing but restrict access and delay permitting.”–IBD

  • It’s the Royal “We”. I saw him on the flag, his flag, his country. All those oil companies drilling on private land, those are ‘WE” now.

  • But but but . . . oil drilling increased under Obama.

    Just keep saying it.
