The charts shown above are from the latest short term energy outlook from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) and posted on the website of the House Natural Resources Committee. The numbers speak for themselves. Obama has depredated Gulf oil drilling and exploration, which in turn has forced us to import more oil from terrorist supporting countries. The president will continue to articulate bald faced lies about the need to ween ourselves off foreign oil, but his war on domestic productivity continues to make us an utter dependent suckling of terrorist oil. The next few weeks will be crucial for congressional Republicans and their opportunity to exhibit leadership on this issue. They need to make a comprehensive energy production bill an immediate top priority on the House floor.
