Regarding the North Dakota oil article… how can that article be correct? Romney says Obama has stifled the oil and coal energy businesses in the US. Would Romney double the oil production of North Dakota with new drilling permits?

Lib Rick

The permits and plans for this were in place before Obama took office. This is truly something Obama inherited from his predecessor.

It is unlikely that Romney can double production in North Dakota, but a more intelligent energy policy will create new opportunities both the produce energy in various forms and more importantly to move it to were it is needed.
