West Chester – Texas billionaire T. Boone Pickens faulted President Barack Obama on Friday, saying the president has failed to develop the energy plan he promised Americans as a presidential candidate in 2008.
The oil magnate and advocate for alternative fuels said at a town hall meeting at a southeast Pennsylvania university that the Democratic president hasn't followed up on a campaign promise to end America's reliance on Mideast oil within 10 years.
"He's never told us how we're going to get off the Mideast oil, and no one's ever asked him," Pickens said. "We're the only country in the world that has no energy plan."
