On every front, when it comes to oil and gas production, [Obama’s] agencies have been doing less and less and making it harder and harder” to extract fossil fuels from federal land
The administration continues to tout increases in total U.S. oil and gas production as evidence that its energy policies are furnishing increased domestic energy resources.
To use Obama’s phrase: he is essentially trying to use some kind of Jedi mind trick to say, ‘there is no problem here, move along. I was speaking last week at a Federal Lands Oil and Gas conference and every person in the room agreed they run into nothing but roadblocks and delays” in the federal permit application process. The president continues to tout total production numbers while avoiding any mention of the decline in production on federal land. Its hogwash!
