Full post by Angel here: http://wp.me/p1Wy58-4bY Obama has had the chance to encourage production, he's done the opposite:
• He needlessly halted Gulf drilling permits after the BP oil spill, and continues to slow-walk them. Permit approvals are less than half their pre-Obama average, and approval times have nearly doubled.
• Obama scuttled the 700,000-barrels-a-day Keystone XL pipeline, despite approval by the State Department after an exhaustive three-year review.
• And he endlessly demonizes oil companies while pushing to sharply raise their taxes.
The truth is that for Obama, low gas prices are the problem.
When all is said and done perhaps higher gas prices could be a blessing in disguise, maybe God will bless us by getting obama out of the White House...
