I don't care for Gingrich at all, certainly not as the GOP nominee, but one has to admit, he knows his stuff.
To Obama's boast that America is producing more oil today than any time in the last 8 years, Gingrich noted that the North Dakota boom was on private land. He reported in his earlier speech that "Under President Obama because he is so anti-American energy, we have actually had a 40% reduction in development of oil offshore, and we have had a 40% reduction in the development of oil on federal lands." In his San Francisco speech, Gingrich added: "So in the area he controls, production is down and the area that is hard at the free enterprise stuff where people get rich, production is up. So he is now claiming credit for the area he can't control in order to have us think he is actually for what he opposes."The entire article is pretty much about the Bakken. I think you will enjoy it.
I have to thank a reader from Bismarck for sending me this article. It really is very, very good. If you don't like the players in the article (Obama vs Gingrich), replace the names with those of people you like.
