Yeah, he's got an energy policy all right. What a guy--that president of ours!
What's it like living in a cave? US oil production's up 15% since Obama took office, and natural gas production's at a 40-year high; so what's he thwarting???
And gas was $4.27 a gallon under Bush, when Obama was elected in 2008, so just the aura from his presidential victory caused prices to drop to under $2/per gallon! Right? I mean, after all, if you blame him for the doubling of prices now, you have to credit him with halving them in the first place. Or maybe, just maybe, your cause-and-effect accusations are just partisan bullshit... http://www.washingtonpost.com/politi...S_story_1.html
