Obama Openly Lying About Palin’s Speech Already….

Posted by iusbvision on September 4, 2008

Senator Barack Obama said today that there was not one word in Sarah Palin’s speech about alternative energy. Well read what Palin said for yourself. Really the media should be going nuts with this stuff and the fact that they aren’t doing basic fact checking is a real problem. Sean Hannity says that 2008 is the year journalism died. It is hard to argue with him when we find stuff like this.

UPDATE: Just now at 7:24 PM Eastern time one of Obama’s campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs, who appeared on The Fox Report with Shepard Smith, said that Palin said nothing about how she will help reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Why is the press not blowing them out of the water?

Here is a portion of  her speech addressing energy policy. The transcript from CNN.

And despite fierce opposition from oil company lobbyists, who kind of liked things the way that they were, we broke their monopoly on power and resources. As governor, I insisted on competition and basic fairness to end their control of our state and return it to the people.

I fought to bring about the largest private-sector infrastructure project in North American history. And when that deal was struck, we began a nearly $40 billion natural gas pipeline to help lead America to energy independence.

That pipeline, when the last section is laid and its valves are open, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart.

The stakes for our nation could not be higher. When a hurricane strikes in the Gulf of Mexico, this country should not be so dependent on imported oil that we’re forced to draw from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. And families cannot throw more and more of their paychecks on gas and heating oil.

With Russia wanting to control a vital pipeline in the Caucasus and to divide and intimidate our European allies by using energy as a weapon, we cannot leave ourselves at the mercy of foreign suppliers.

To confront the threat that Iran might seek to cut off nearly a fifth of the world’s energy supplies, or that terrorists might strike again at the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia, or that Venezuela might shut off its oil discoveries and its deliveries of that source, Americans, we need to produce more of our own oil and gas. And…

And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: We’ve got lots of both.

Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems, as if we didn’t know that already.

But the fact that drilling, though, won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines, and build more nuclear plants, and create jobs with clean coal, and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need…

We need American sources of resources. We need American energy brought to you by American ingenuity and produced by American workers.
