In yet another brilliant move, dear leader has benevolently made the American economy even more dependent on oil from Islamic ran thugocracies.

You might have forgotten but there was an election recently. I know you would like to forget that but do you remember your Left Wing conspiracy theory to fix the polls?
Your buddy just threw you under the bus.

By Asjylyn Loder - Nov 7, 2012 12:24 PM ET
Bloomberg.com (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-07/u-s-oil-raises-increases-to-highest-level-since-december-1994.html)

U.S. oil production rose to <u>the highest in almost 18 years</u> as a shale drilling boom cut reliance on foreign fuel and nudged the country closer to energy independence.

Output swelled by 8,000 barrels to 6.68 million barrels a day in the week ended Nov. 2, the Energy Department reported today. It was the most since Dec. 23, 1994. Improvements in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, have unlocked fuel trapped in deep underground rock formations in states such as North Dakota, Texas and Oklahoma.

The U.S. met 83% of its energy needs in first six months of 2012, on track to be the highest annual level since 1991, according to department data compiled by Bloomberg. Production advanced 31 percent this year in North Dakota, 19 percent in Texas and 11 percent in Oklahoma, department records show. Crude imports have declined 11 percent this year.

“Every added barrel we make here is another barrel we don’t need from somewhere else,” said Kyle Cooper, director of commodities research at IAF Advisors, a Houston consulting firm. “U.S. production could reach 9 million to 10 million barrels per day in another five to 10 years.”

Oil fell $3.59 a barrel, or 4.1 percent, to $85.12 on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 12:19 p.m. Futures have declined 14 percent this year.

Actually, the plan decreases our dependence on foreign oil significantly, potentially, compared to the status quo.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The administration and Democrats said that while the plan would curtail what was originally sought for oil shale development, it still opens up a significant amount of land that was previously unavailable for the energy production method.

The administration noted the plan pushed forward Friday also included two research, development and demonstration (RD&D) leases for oil shale development. </div></div>

So the correct characterization of this is that it does not expand access to shale resources on federal lands as much as originally planned, but still expands that access, and so REDUCES dependency on foreign oil imports (which of course do not mainly come from Islamic ran thugocracies at all, here, where most imports are from our own hemisphere). Reduces dependence, not increases dependence.

It's one of the +/- things you do so poorly on. Somewhat less on the + side is still a +.
