Obama takes credit for U.S. oil-and-gas boom: 'That was me, people'

Industry argues that upswing occurred in spite of Obama's policies

By Valerie Richardson

President Barack Obama took credit once again Tuesday for the U.S. oil-and-gas boom, even though critics have argued that the upswing in oil and natural gas production occurred in spite of his policies.

Mr. Obama told the audience at a gala for Rice University’s Baker Institute that he was “extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords” before saying “I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy.”

“You wouldn’t always know it ,but it went up every year I was president,” he said to applause. “That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

Hilarious. He is also bragging about his climate change legacy which was built on destroying the oil and gas industry.

Classic Barry.

Wonder if he will claim he was the first president to marry a model?

He's hoping that people have a short memory; most do. Besides if you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth. Just ask any politician.

Ex-Shell President John Hofmeister: Obama 'had nothing to do' with oil-and-gas boom

Lying and reinventing history are what Obama does.

Quote
Former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister is pouring cold water on former President Barack Obama’s claims that he’s responsible for the country’s boom in oil and gas production.

Mr. Obama on Tuesday told the audience at a gala for Rice University’s Baker Institute that he deserved credit for the oil-and-gas boom that his successor, President Trump, is now enjoying.

“You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president,” the former president said to applause. “That whole — suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

Mr. Hofmeister, who now serves as CEO for Citizens for Affordable Energy Inc., appeared on Fox News Thursday suggesting that U.S. oil and gas production increased in spite of Mr. Obama’s policies.

“Yes, the production did increase throughout his term, but, frankly, he had nothing to do with it,” Mr. Hofmeister said on “Fox & Friends.”

“This was production in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, North Dakota, in particular. And these were all state decisions made with industry applications for permits. The federal government had no role,” he added.


“[Mr. Obama] was mostly in the way when it came to any carbon-based fuel, but when it came to the actual facts of the matter, because there were areas beyond his jurisdiction, things got done.
