re: Obama Lied: Oil Drilling Permits Have Been Cut (Posted on 10/16/12 at 10:03 pm to WaveHog)
quote: he didn't deny that permits have decreased nor did he say that permits have increased. he said overall production has increased.
oil production is up on federal land from 2008.
A lot of people don't realize how misleading that is. The production of oil has always been an exponential function. It always increases year after year; it's just a matter of how much it increases. It's had much lower growth under the Obama administration.
