The supposed claim was “we were awash in crude oil”.

The link does not show that claim.

It does falsely report he claimed “The U.S. has become a net energy exporter.” But it links to his web site that states:

“The U.S. has become a net exporter of fuels for the first time since 1949.”

Those are not the same. They are both being deceptive.

I am not in anyway an Obama supporter. But we don't have to make up lies about what he has said. His actual words are damaging enough and distorting his claims diminishes us. We need to be a source of actually information, not just more lies.

A generalized statement that somebody (not me, btw) wrote for a blog headline does not equate to an intentional “lie”.

And back to the main point: Do you support Keystone XL? Forest for the trees...
