I can see why people like Wilkow have been driven crazy with Obama's taunting them over the current situation with oil production in this country... the FACT is that domestic oil production IS up -- from an average of 4.954M bbls per day in January 2009 to a current average of 5.654M bbls per day production.

Had to laugh at Wilkow pointing to the rightwing think tank, The Heartland Institute, as a 'unbiased' source simply because he thinks anyone and anything located in Chicago is in the bag for Obama... LOL. In reality, the Heartland Institute is most famously known for their work on denying climate change -- which had been funded by Exxon Mobil and a host of energy companies..... then there was their report on the effects of smoking... which had been funded by the likes of Phillip Morris. The specific report the Heartland Institute cites in Wilkow's article was prepared FOR the American Petroleum Institute by EIS Solutions. API works FOR the petroleum industry... EIS Solutions would prepare a report for Satan if he paid them to do it.

Also, the nonsense about off shore leases being abnormally below yearly averages prior to Obama taking office is just plain misleading. The BP spill halted lease sales altogether in 2010, and the supposed drop in 2009 (from a record high 2008) put 2009 only slightly lower than the average yearly lease sales between 1999 and 2005. The article conveniently props up what has happened SINCE 2008 without adding what happened prior to 2008. Besides, the success of lease sales depends more on the companies wanting to purchase leases... doesn't it? In any event, 2011's lease sale brought in more than $337 Million, making it the third largest lease sale ever! So much for the Gulf being slowed down, huh...

Regarding Andrew's 2010 information on Virginia's offshore woes, he needs to get himself an update... While Sale 220 was delayed five years, it has more to do with the status of the acreage than it does any moratorium. 2.9 million acres off the shore of Virginia is currently being explored, but the DoD has said that as much as 80% of Sale 220 falls within areas that the military has determined as "No Oil & Gas Activity" areas. Norfolk is the world's largest naval base, and naval operations in that area take up a good part of the surrounding waters.

All three of the items above BREAK Wilkow's argument today... Go figure. You'd think his extensive researching of the topics he covers would include his own website.... So funny.
