Obama talks oil, drilling, energy but never says 'Solyndra,' 'Keystone' or 'Bush'

President Obama criticized Republicans for playing politics over fuel prices when he gave a speech at the University of Miami on Thursday amid a $4 million Florida fundraising spree.

Obama tried to take credit for increased oil drilling, but never mentioned that it's largely the result of Bush Administration policies. He talked about oil pipelines from Canada, but he never said "Keystone XL," the pipeline his administration nixed. And he spoke about the need for alternative energy, but "Solyndra" -- the controversial bankrupt solar firm with political ties to Obama -- never crossed his lips.
