Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

We have nothing to lose by giving the Romney/Ryan team a chance to turn things around.

Is anyone REALLY happy with where we are?

Oil production in the US is at the highest level since 2003. There are only 7 fewer oil rigs in the Gulf now then before the BP spill. 6 fewer if you don't count the one laying on the ocean floor.

Just like ALL your Repub talking points you lie and twist the truth. After the San Francisco reporter ask Obama about the new Clean Air Act rules that were set to take place in 2013 did he answer the question. The NEW Clean AIR Act Laws that are coming were put in place in 1990 by GHW Bush. Then GW Bush signed a 10 year extension to them in 2003. The Supreme Court has ruled on an EPA lawsuit that no more extension can be granted. Only Congress can redo the new laws. Obama cannot do anything about them.

By the way. Obama was endorsed by the Untied Mine Workers of America. Strange the industry you Repubs say Obama is killing would do that.

By ANDREW RESTUCCIA | 6/12/12 11:23 PM EDT

U.S. oil production reached its highest level since 1998 in the first three months of 2012, providing fodder for more political wrangling about who should get the credit.

Last week’s Energy Information Administration data came as welcome news for the Obama administration, which has been working for months to combat Republican allegations that the president is blocking expanded oil and gas production.

Those sickening anti-Americans aka Republicans like cultist Romney and Paul thrive on stealing jobs from Americans so of course they Stop every measure that would lower the unemployment rate. They hate seeing Barack Obama succeed but they won't be able to stop him from being reelected and getting on with restoring America for TRUE Americans.
The rate of joblessness increased more than two points, from 10.4 percent in June 2011 to 12.8 percent in 2012, according to figures from the Office of Employment and Training.

12.8 percent.

Put some tax dollars into where the EPA says they need to go, and back to where they came from to start with.

You are wrong.
" The EPA’s regulatory crusade directly threatens hundreds of thousands of jobs -- and “rolling blackouts” that threaten even more.
Start with a proposed regulation under the Clean Air Act that’s set to be finalized in November. The Utility MACT (“Maximum Achievable Control Technology”) rule seeks to cut US power plants’ emissions of mercury from 29 tons a year to just five. Yet EPA itself estimates that cutting even as much as 41 tons out of total emissions of 105 tons “is unlikely to substantially affect total risk." Date of article August 2011

You posted this earlier and got debunked and now for a second round. Coal plants are closing due to Obama's regulations of Coal Power Plants.
Mine Succumbs To Obama's War On Coal, Ohio
"PJM Interconnection, the company that operates the electric grid for 13 states, including Ohio, recently held its 2015 capacity auction. This gave the first real indication of just how drastic the effects of Obama's war on coal will be. The market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity was $136 per megawatt.
That's eight times higher than the price for 2012, which was just $16 per megawatt. In Pennsylvania, the new market price is $167 per megawatt — 10 times higher. In northern Ohio, which is suffering from more forced coal-plant retirements than the rest of the region, the 2015 price is an astounding $357 per megawatt."
http://news.investors.com/article/620622/2012...
This of course closed down a local mine
1990 GHW Bush signs into law a new Clean Air Act.
The laws main focus is heavy metal emissions. Coal Power Plants are given an 11 year period to meet the new standards. Most do. 2003 a 10 year extension is signed by GW Bush to the Clean Air Act to allow more time for coal fired plants to comply. More do some do not. 2007 the Supreme Court ruled no more extension can be granted.

So, Republican President George H.W.Bush is the one that changed the Clean Air Act in 1990 that is causing coal plants to close today.
