However it won't bring back the Mars ice caps or abate Solar System Climate Change. Maybe the Vogons filed something away on this in a local City Hall.

of permits allowed by Bush prior to BO's term and on private lands that the Feds have no say so over....however, the LOST Treaty will probably come up during the lameduck session for a vote and that affects offshore rigs, giving a tremendous amount of the Treasury's revenue to the UN to determine what 'poor' countries will receive. Once this treaty is signed and in effect, there will no stopping the UN then from formulating another Treaty that will also affect oil produced on our lands and not just in the open waters.
As for passing Saudi Arabia within the next ten years, we Conservatives have been saying for years that the US had enough oil to do that if drilling was allowed. We could have easily surpassed SA if BO hadn't pulled permits on Fed land four years ago because it normally takes about five years for drilling and production, and we could be at that point next year instead of ten from now.
I am sick of having leaders who pay countries that hate us........and this is just another way to do that.
I've been complaining that production on Federal lands was down by half or more and we could have already been pretty close to oil independence if BO hadn't stopped it all.
I've been saying that DEMAND is down which gives the impression of a surplus but that demand is down because nobody is working and using the fuel to go to jobs and those out of work can't afford the high prices in order to even look or do much on a recreational basis.
Another piece of it was the fact that prices were continuing to rise despite the poor economy, so even as demand decreased, prices kept rising. The opposite should have been happening.
The article wasn't talking about supply on-hand, so much as prospects for future production based on current laws and policies.
These are the people who have claimed all along that without deregulation NOW, then the US would always be behind.
NOW they want to say it was just a matter of time AND all attributable to their favorite son's efforts and those efforts alone.
Ain't it funny how they say it could NEVER happen under Obama's watch, and now they say it was always gonna happen whether Obama is in office or not? It's too bad we can't harness all that wasted energy from their hissy fits. That energy could have made the US energy independent YEARS ago.
which BO dismantled handily, and since BO won't be around in ten years, and much is being made on assumptions of policies not already in place, it's hardly worthy of an 'atta boy'. I have absolutely no faith in this president living up to this article's forecast ten years into the future anymore than I have faith in deficit reductions over the next four years that do nothing toward the national debt that will increasingly go larger according to the CBO's own numbers.
He got 'soft interviews' where he never got asked hard questions.....and he ducked and dodged most of those that were asked by rambling nonsense and ticking down the interview clock. That's his modus operandi and he's still ducking news conferences and only making speeches that don't allow questions because those questions might conflict with the message he wants to put out there.
awfulness of the current President. Bush lost the popular vote in his first election, Obama gained substantial majorities in both of his elections.
You were one of those here who objected to criticism of Bush as a sitting President as disloyalty and un-American. Well, you're being disloyal, and you're being un-American since yours is a minority view even whithin the Republican Party. Welcome to the club.
Fortunately the NSA doesn't appear to be acting on its monitoring of internet activity, and you're allowed your ludicrous and unpleasant opinions. Oh, and the NSA's right to monitor domestic communications wasn't passed by Congress, it was an Executive Order by Georgie-boy. Sounds pretty anti-democratic and high-handed to me.
The attacks on our embassies during Bush's term and others during BO's (since you went back ten years, I assume you included the four years of BO) did result in deaths; however, they were deaths of soldiers protecting the embassies.......there were NO deaths of Ambassadors and none of those attacks were involved in advance warnings like Benghazi.......they also involved immediate response from military support and put down pretty quickly.......not so with Benghazi. Calls for help were denied. Far different circumstances when you have total neglect involved and murders allowed to happen.
Josh...I'm glad to see that you see four American deaths who pleaded for help and were ignored or denied for months ahead of time and including the same day of their deaths is such a puny thing to you. Four, including an Ambassador for the first time in over 30 years.....vs soldiers dying in a war-torn country where we have been for ten years already. Four, in a country that THIS president obviously doesn't believe is a big deal when he is trying to make Libya appear to be 'normalized' because NATO 'saved' it.
