Energy Department Secretary Steven Chu Says Obama Admin Not Looking to Lower the Price of Gasoline

 

Barack Obama’s Energy Department Secretary Steven Chu has done the unthinkable, he actually told the truth of Obama’s energy policy … they are not looking to lower the price of gasoline.  So Americans are finally witness to Obama’s grand scheme on fossil fuels. How dare one of Obama’s minions actually speak with candor and the truth. The truth is that Chu and Obama are perfectly content with rising gas prices as it plays into their agenda of failed “green” energy. Voters might want to remember this in 2012.

Obana & Chu … We like High Gas prices, let them run their cars on cake

President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices.

Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.

This should be interesting how Obama will defend this policy during the general election in 2012 when gas prices are $4 and possibly over $5 a gallon.

The Energy Department isn’t working to lower gasoline prices directly, Secretary Steven Chu said Tuesday after a Republican lawmaker scolded him for his now-infamous 2008 comment that gas prices in the U.S. should be as high as in Europe.

Instead, DOE is working to promote alternatives such as biofuels and electric vehicles, Chu told House appropriators during a hearing on DOE’s budget.

But Americans need relief now, Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) said — not high gasoline prices that could eventually push them to alternatives.

“I can’t look at motivations. I have to look at results. And under this administration the price of gasoline has doubled,” Nunnelee told Chu.

Weasel Zippers reminds us that Energy Department Secretary Steven Chu is the same individual who stated that U.S. gas prices should be as high as those in Europe. I guess this must be all a part of Obamanomics, raise gas prices to raise the cost of doing business to prevent the economy from rebounding … more Obama brilliance. They must be voted out in 2012.

      Chu is one of Obama’s bananas. Chu better read his fortune cookie now before his political career gets squished like an overripe Persimmon. Chu is an embarassment to my community, the Asian American community, and has brought shame to it!

      This article has a quote in it that is ascribed to Obama. The quote is, “We like High Gas prices, let them run their cars on cake.”

      The author of this article should be aware that it is libel to make up quotes that a person never said and then print them. If anyone can prove to me when or where the president said this ridiculous thing, I’ll eat my shoe.

      SM: Yet anything fool posting on the internet … whats the matter the truth hurt of the 1%, King Obama? Truth me, we do not have to invent quotes, this political neophyte has made enough gafftastic comments to last a lifetime.

      Here’s one … drilling for oil won’t lower gas prices. Remember that Obama classic?

      Although Obama then says that reducing the demand for it will. What grasp of supply and demand The One has. NOT.
