THE FACTS: President Obama on Oil and Gas Prices.

The Republican presidential candidates are getting desperate. The longer their primary process continues the further they are exposed as radicals and inauthentic charlatans. Thus, rather than defend their weaknesses they are trying to deflect the public's attention away from them and onto the president over gas and oil.

They are trying to say that the recent rise in gas prices is President Obama's fault. Well, if that's true, then why has President Obama expanded more offshore drilling in America? And why have we drilled as much under Obama as Bush? Republican President George W. Bush? Don't believe me? Then maybe you'll believe an oil and gas insider:

According to the rolling oil rig count by industry services giant Baker Hughes, the oil and gas industry is drilling as much under the first two years of President Barack Obama as it did under the first two years of George W. Bush.

TPJ: And if that's not enough, the Obama policy on drilling has made the United States an industry leader. "Including those in natural gas fields, the United States now has more rigs at work than the entire rest of the world." That from a Houston Chronicle article by Simone Sebastian.
