Obama Claims Credit for Record U.S. Oil Production

Former President Barack Hussein Obama desperately claimed sole responsibility for America’s record oil and gas production. While leaning back in his chair, Obama told a crowd at Rice University’s Baker Institute, “That was me, people.” No, we’re not kidding. He bragged: And that whole, suddenly America’s like, the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas – that was me, people…” Yes, Obama actually uttered those words. Somehow he’s conveniently forgotten that he tried desperately to regulate fracking, insisted on not approving the Keystone Pipeline from Canada, banned drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and refused to allow exportation of liquid natural gas. Yep, our oil boom was all Obama’s work, folks. Thanks so much, Barry!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Tuesday night, former President Barack Obama made a claim that was so transparently false and self-aggrandizing that it staggers the imagination just to think of the arrogance and audacity of the man. Speaking before a crowd at Rice University’s Baker Institute, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary, Obama claimed he was responsible for America’s surge to become the top oil and gas producer in the world, saying, “That was me, people.”

Leaning back in his chair, Obama pontificated:

I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris Accords because, look, I know, I know we’re an oil country and we need American energy, and by the way American energy production.You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president. And that whole, suddenly America’s like, the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people, I just wanted you to … so … so … it’s a little like sometimes you go to Wall Street and folks’ll be grumbling about anti-business and I said, “Have you checked where your stocks were when I came into office, where they are now?
