House Comm. debunks Obama State of the Union drilling claims

From the House Natural Resources Committee:

During last night’s State of the Union, President Obama claimed his Administration has been actively working to speed up Applications for Permits to Drill (APDs) for energy producers on federal lands:

“That’s why my Administration will keep cutting red tape and speeding up new oil and gas permits.”

But facts are stubborn things and that statement simply is not true. Under President Obama’s leadership, it has taken on average 30 percent longer, compared to the previous four years, to approve new drilling permits.

Read the entire media release.

  1. This seems typical of progressives. Why tell the truth when truth doesn’t support the agenda?

  2. I’ve somewhat accommodated myself to the notion that politicians lie. But lying about something so easy to falsify still beggars imagination. I guess I’m not cynical enough yet.
