Anyone who still believes a word out of Barack Obama’s mouth has to be a complete idiot.  The man is a lie-machine.  Every speech, every utterance and aside, is designed to mislead — whether by misstatement, omission, or outright licentious license.

Exploding the Big Lie pushed by President Obama that we can’t drill our way out of high gas prices because we have but 2% of the world’s proven oil reserves, Anu Mittal, GAO director of natural resources and environment, testified before Congress last week that just one small part of the U.S. is capable of outproducing the rest of the planet.”

and…

One of the many falsehoods that the President and his anti-fossil fuel allies like to perpetuate is that the U.S. is about run out of reserves.

——————–

Obama claims there are no easy fixes [to our gasoline price hikes] and that the real solution is the forced development of alternative energy — after all the United States has only 2% of the world’s oil reserves.  This is not only demagoguery of the worst sort but an outright lie… the United States is sitting on the world’s largest untapped oil reserve…  The untapped reserves are estimated up to 2.3 Trillion barrels, nearly three times the reserves held by the OPEC countries and sufficient to meet 300 years of demand, at today’s levels…

The EPA is guilty of Cargo Cult Science, described by Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman — i.e., pursuing a project of sham science that misuses government funding.  Eisenhower warned of this same concept in his farewell speech.

… the [P]resident has been casting about for a convenient scapegoat.  He’s found one in oil market speculators, whom he charges with driving up the price of crude oil and gasoline…  In truth, the crackdown on oil speculation, not unlike Obama’s recent campaign for a ‘Buffet rule’ tax on millionaires, is little more than a cheap political ploy.  Laws are already in place to regulate market manipulation, making Obama’s crackdown largely symbolic.
