Bad choice of words? Either way shes WAYYY off. since you had to venture a guess where the quote came from, I doubt you looked at the article to back
this up.. another quote from it might help.....
Thanks for the compliment, I will be announcing my Candidacy soon.
BTW, I do read the articles and the supporting links in the articles as well. My link is found within the article you are talking about, that article
is used as a source for the Factcheck article, proving that I did read it, jeez, chill out a little. I won't even ask for an apology, hint, hint. I
don't think you want to jump on every word a candidate utters to prove they are wrong or unqualified, IMO. You might not like the results.
Again, I said she probably was referring to the average % of Domestically produced Oil and or Natural Gas.
Here is from the fact check article, but it just discusses last years numbers, not the average of Domestic production that I am talking about.
Palin would have been correct to say that Alaska produces just over 14 percent of all the oil produced in the U.S., leaving out imports and leaving
out other forms of power. According to the federal government's Energy Information Administration, Alaskan wells produced 263.6 million barrels of
oil in 2007, or 14.3 percent of the total U.S. production of 1.8 billion barrels.
As I've stated, the term energy was innappropriate, sub in Oil and the statement stands when you take an average of % of Domestic production, not
just last year's numbers. The existing oil fields in Alaska are producing less oil each year, thats why there is a need to find/explore/drill for new
You are making a mountain out of a molehill, but go ahead if you think it will help.
