In the Weekly Republican Address, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin says the energy crisis facing America isn't caused by a lack of energy resources, but rather stems from a lack of leadership that starts "at the top" with the President. "America remains dependent on foreign oil from unstable and anti-Western regimes, and yet the President is blocking the pipeline that would transport oil to the United States from our neighbor and ally—Canada," she says. "Millions of Americans remain out of work, but President Obama continues to propose job-killing tax hikes and obstruct the basic energy infrastructure projects that would lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs, not to mention more revenue in state budgets."
Gov Fallin said that Oklahomans were surprised by some of the claims President Obama was taking credit for in his speech. She called them "outrageous".
