Another Day, Another Lie

Chalk another lie up in the "Obama Opens his Mouth" column. Man, it's exhausting trying to keep up with them all. Maybe the Whitehouse should spend a little more time censuring Obama, and not worry so much at Bozo the VP. On 06 July, Obama gave an interview to the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, during which he said that the US "import[s] more oil today than ever before." With all due respect, Mr. President, that's not exactly accurate. Not even close.

This chart is from the US Energy and Information Administration, and clearly shows that oil imports peaked in Nov 2005, and have steadily decreased since then. I wonder at what point Americans will start holding His Holiness accountable for what comes out of his mouth.

  1. At least he was in Russia, I was half afraid he was going to show up at Jacko's funeral....what a political forum that was!

  2. Yeah, to be honest, I'm shocked he didn't. With all the campaigning, and so little actual work he's still doing, I thought that would be perfect venue for him to push health care or cap-&-tax.
