Krauthammer’s Take

by NRO Staff

From Wednesday night’s Fox News All-Stars.

On President Obama’s speech on energy policy:

You’ll notice he picked an odd number as his starting point as a way to measure the one-third reduction. He said ‘when I was sworn into office,’ and you ask yourself, well, why would he pick that number instead of today’s? It’s because on the day he was sworn into office we imported 11 million barrels a day. Well, because of recession and other causes it’s now 9.7 [million]. So we’re a third of the way to his goal as of today without him having lifted a finger.

On whether Congress and the White House will get serious because of the rise in gas prices:

No — because Democrats oppose drilling and Republicans aren’t in power.
