Awww, Robert Haslag, if nothing else you are a faithful lap dog, I mean follower of the Democratic doctrine. Your facts presented in your copy of the Democratic propaganda to the editorial page of the Nov. 3 News Tribune are in fact true, but only true in spite of your ruler, I mean Obama, not because of him.
I am not going to bore people with the truth about oil production and leases on government land that was restricted by Obama.
The increase in production was a result of what was occurring, called exploration for oil, during the Bush administration, simple as that. As for your other statistics, liars figure and figures lie.
By the time this hits print, we can only hope that office of president is occupied by a person qualified to run a small business, any business, and has worked all his life. You Mr. Haslag and Obama are both avowed unashamed socialists. People such as me still believe that the USA is an exceptional country.
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." This quote is from Winston Churchill and I approve of this message.
