Obama Is Upset People Won’t Just Tell Him ‘Thank You’ for Booming Economy and US Becoming Top Oil Producer

Who do you think deserves credit for the current oil boom in oil and energy production?

According to former president Barack Obama, it’s him and Americans should be thanking him.

He did that while at the same time claiming credit for the Paris Accord climate agreement.

From Free Beacon:

“I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords because — you know, I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy, and by the way, American energy production,” Obama said.

“You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president. That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”


Talk about narcissism. Especially since he was viewed as an avowed enemy of coal and pipeline production and imposed environmental regulations that didn’t help.

From Free Beacon:

The Daily Caller noted U.S. oil production indeed doubled during the Obama years, and natural gas output rose 50 percent, but the rise was mainly from work on private or state lands outside his administration’s purview. The Trump administration has dramatically increased oil production on federal lands, with Department of the Interior data stating this year has been the highest on record.

In other words, nothing to do with Obama.

Obama also was upset that he wasn’t given credit for the growth of the stock market during his tenure, in part because his regulations were so onerous to businesses.

“What are you talking about? What are you complaining about? Just say, ‘Thank you,’ please,'” Obama complained.

Any growth was achieved despite him not because of him. And Trump, by contrast, has ignited the boom in energy production and the economy in general.
