. Obama Built That? Obama jumps right over ridiculous and lands square on delusional as he actually tries to take personal credit for the shale revolution that made America the world’s No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas in recent years!! OMG! While in office, Obama called fossil fuels the “energies of the past” and burden them with excessive regulations as he actively promoted renewable energies like solar and wind with subsidies. I’ll give Obama Four Pinocchios for his false, delusional claim that he was in any way responsible for America’s remarkable oil and gas energy success story.
