Romney Calls Obama An “Anti-Energy President"

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney blasted President Obama's energy policies during a campaign appearance in Marcellus Shale country.

Speaking at a Wyoming County company that supplies water for natural gas drilling, Romney called Mr. Obama an "anti-energy president." Romney pointed out states have typically taken the lead on regulating hydraulic fracturing.

"But now this president has eight different agencies trying to fight their way to become regulators of gas extraction known as fracking. And the intent of course is to slow down the development of our own resources," Romney said.
