We know you’ll find this hard to believe, but President Obama tried to pull a fast one during his Thursday energy speech.
The President says he wants to cut oil imports by one-third by 2025. The problem, as Charles Krauthammer points out, is that Obama sets up a false comparison by using the number of barrels that were being imported daily back when he was inaugurated as his starting point.
Why is that a problem? Because of the recession, the number of barrels imported per day have already dropped from 11 million on inauguration day to just 9.7 million today.
As National Review said, “It’s magic! The president is one-third of the way to his goal. Keep up the good work! Six more years of Obamanomics and we just might hit Obama’s target.”
And as Sarah Palin said, “Drill, baby, drill.”
