    57 states mis statement was "a lie"?
    Name a more transparent administration please.

    SMH.

    No heat but sometimes people have stuff to say about the wrong stuff and end up looking like they are scrabbling for ANYTHINg to justify their position.

    Yes I'm pro Obama,.. (Anti- Dem/Rep - Anti - Congress, But Pro Obama)

    But using the standards you are using here, I could probably find twice the "lies" with Both Bushes, Clinton, and even Reagan - I have to wonder what the point is here.

    For example, I heard the President brag that we are less reliant on foriegn oil. I did look it up and we are,.. we are importing less. Digging deeper I did find that the status quo remains as far as oil companies refusing to drill where they have leases - yet howling because they can't get more leases - and the LEASES they have acted on now that have been granted over the last SIX years IS THE PRIMARY REASON WHY WE ARE LESS RELIENT ON FORIEGN OIL.

    So how exactly was that one a lie?

    Nvm,.. I'd like to debate it but have a strong feeling that this is one of those threads where folk would rather just agree that Everything you listed was true.

    Peace.

    You and Obama are almost the same, (Anti- Dem/Rep - Anti - Congress, But Pro Obama) Too bad the bankers will not throw money at you. We are less reliant on foriegn oil because no one can afford it. They can drill for oil all they want. When your boy will not approve building new refineries, it does no good.

    Interesting theory,.. "Less reliant because we can't afford it?" How does that work anyway?
    You guys have jokes today.

    Still no heat,.. But The President has NEVER been in line to "approve" Building New refineries.
    " In 1970 President Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by Executive Order. An executive order is an order issued by a government's chief executive, intended to give attention to a certain law or body of laws and directs federal agencies how to implement them. The formation of EPA marked a dramatic change in national policy regarding the control of air pollution. Whereas previous federal involvement had been mostly in advisory and educational roles, the new EPA emphasized stringent enforcement of air pollution laws. The EPA was assigned the daunting task of repairing the damage already done to the natural environment and establishing new criteria to guide Americans in making a cleaner environment a reality. A few weeks later the United States Congress passed the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1970. The passage of the CAAA of 1970 marked the beginning of modern efforts to control air pollution."

    "Congress authorizes certain government agencies -- including EPA -- to create regulations. Regulations set specific rules about what is legal and what isn't. For example, a regulation issued by EPA to implement the Clean Air Act might state what levels of a pollutant -- such as sulfur dioxide -- are safe. It would tell industries how much sulfur dioxide they can legally emit into the air, and what the penalty will be if they emit too much. Once the regulation is in effect, EPA then works to help people comply with the law and to enforce it. "

    All that to say this:

    Stop Whining about Obama running the EPA and look toward the Congress for Giving the EPA the power to be butts,.. The best the president CAN DO is yea or nay new laws and point at whom should set and enforce them,... NOT yea or Nay whether an Oil refinery is going to open or not.

    To be blunt,... If you want the EPA to relax standards on clean Air, Water, and Soil to allow fast opening of oil refineries and power plants, you need to go through channels,.. then maybe go live next to power plants that don't have to sweat pollution.
