When a journalist notices that Obama has lied, you can be sure he won’t say Obama lied.
He’ll say Obama “misrepresented.”
The Obama White House can and does lie, all day long and every day; with utter abandon and impunity.
Mixing wishful “change” fodder to scientific fact actually amounts to serious and pernicious fraud; but the Obama government cannot restrain itself.
Breaking the public trust, again, Obama? Just how far do you think the public trust will stretch, on your good looks?
Brazil will get the economic benefit; wasn’t the Obama White House just lauding the Brazilian economy as exemplary for the United States a few days ago? And now, thanks to Obama, it is; BRAZIL CAN DRILL and America cannot. And Brazil will drill a lot more.
The finest equipment is moving to Brazil, where it will stay almost indefinitely.
Obama lies baldly that he wants to make America less energy dependent; yet he is willing to lie insulting the public trust to make America MORE energy dependent.

The seven experts who advised President Obama on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium — something they actually oppose.
The experts, recommended by the National Academy of Engineering, say Interior Secretary Ken Salazar modified their report last month, after they signed it, to include two paragraphs calling for the moratorium on existing drilling and new permits.
Salazar’s report to Obama said a panel of seven experts “peer reviewed” his recommendations, which included a six-month moratorium on permits for new wells being drilled using floating rigs and an immediate halt to drilling operations.
“None of us actually reviewed the memorandum as it is in the report,” oil expert Ken Arnold told Fox News. “What was in the report at the time it was reviewed was quite a bit different in its impact to what there is now. So we wanted to distance ourselves from that recommendation.”
Salazar apologized to those experts Thursday.
“The experts who are involved in crafting the report gave us their recommendation and their input and I very much appreciate those recommendations,” he said. “It was not their decision on the moratorium. It was my decision and the president’s decision to move forward.”
In a letter the experts sent to Salazar, they said his primary recommendation “misrepresents” their position and that halting the drilling is actually a bad idea.
The oil rig explosion occurred while the well was being shut down – a move that is much more dangerous than continuing ongoing drilling, they said.
They also said that because the floating rigs are scarce and in high demand worldwide, they will not simply sit in the Gulf idle for six months. The rigs will go to the North Sea and West Africa, possibly preventing the U.S. from being able to resume drilling for years.
They also said the best and most advanced rigs will be the first to go, leaving the U.S. with the older and potentially less safe rights operating in the nation’s coastal waters.
