Presidential Politics and Energy Policy One of the crucial issues for both presidential candidates as they woo Ohio voters is energy. President Obama says domestic oil, natural gas and coal production are up, and his push for renewable energy will pay long-term benefits. Mitt Romney promises energy independence by 2020 and says Obama is blocking more drilling on federal land and waters. And Obama is hindering coal production with excessive regulations. Monday on “The Sound of Ideas” we'll look at the candidate's energy policies and examine their claims.
