Fact Checking Obama's Ass

There was a day when snakes-for-presidents could do it with impunity.

Not no mo'.

With weblogs proliferating these days, there's no way a lying Head of State is going to make the outlandish claims Obama is making and get away with it.
Obama Claim: “Since President Obama took office, oil imports have been reduced by an average of 1.1 million barrels per day.”

Reality: A reduction of imports has happened in spite of President Obama, not because of him. More than half of the reduction is because the ongoing recession and much higher price have made fuel so expensive that consumers are using less of it.

In January 2009, when President Obama was inaugurated, the U.S. produced 5,154,000 barrels of oil a day. By November 2011, the last month for which we have data, the U.S. was producing 5,874,000 barrels of oil a day. This 700,000 barrel a day increase isn’t happening on federal lands, for which President Obama would justifiably claim some credit, but on private and state lands.

The reality is that oil production on federal lands is falling, while production on private and state lands is rising. There is a long term trend of decreasing oil production on federal lands. In fact, oil production on federal lands has fallen by 43 percent over the past 9 years according to the Obama administration’s Energy Information Administration.  And it has dropped rapidly on President Obama’s watch. 
Here's Obama, in his first reelection campaign ad, telling us how great a job he's done on the energy front.

You can see from the facts provided above that he's lying through his teeth.

Obama's record on energy has been a nightmare.  And four more years of Obama will make it that much worse.

You have the power to stop him.  Remember November.

Then there are Obama's lies relating to our national debt.  Does he think he's dealing with a bunch of fools and Democrats out here?
