Republicans criticized President Barack Obama's decision to visit Cushing, Okla., to show his support for oil and natural gas development. "The only recent action the president has taken on energy involved lobbying Senators, personally and successfully, to prevent construction of the Keystone pipeline," said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. "During his trip ... he pretended to support the virtues of oil and gas, but we all know what he is really doing," said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.
