Obama´s half truths

Is this what he means by change? Series of half-truths and made up facts! is anyone checking his claims, or the media is just so in love with him that no one bothers or cares!. Well, Hugh Hewitt.. has the list compiled for them:

In the course of a single speech Obama asserted that offshore oil exploration would —in the very best scenario— take five years to drive down the cost of gas 3 or 4 cents, but that an investment of 250 billion dollars five years ago would have produced an engine that didn't require fossil fuels.

Obama asserted that we could move to 40 MPG fuel standards for cars, and at another point asserted that the technology existed for 100 MPG cars, even as he asserted that exploration on the outer continental shelf and Alaska would cause permanent environmental damage.

Obama extolled a high school he had visited that —he firmly stated— was majority Hispanic, and which had gone from a 50% drop-out rate to a 100% graduation and college enrollment rate in one year by using an Afro-American centric curriculum that focused on African music, then blues and jazz. Obama held out this school as an example of what could be achieved when students "were engaged in a curriculum that was interesting to them and seemed relevant to them."
