Word Abuse: Media Ignores Obama’s False ‘As I’ve Often Said’ Reference to ‘Exploration’
April 23, 2009, by Tom Blumer
The best that might be said is that Obama might have meekly flip-flopped last summer to appear open to the idea of increased exploration. But it was meaningless political posturing that, despite his speech Wednesday, has no apparent carryforward value. The meaningless of the summer flip-flop, to the extent that it occurred, is obvious, because at the same time Obama was championing a ridiculous windfall-profits tax on energy companies that, if ever enacted, would likely bring any thoughts of further domestic exploration and production to a screeching halt.
