Obama says he wants high gas prices

The idiot's plan was to make gas prices high so "Alternatives" wouldn't look so bad. This is what you think living in an insulated academic bubble or if you're just a Dumbarse like Obama.

Energy Secretary Chu Admits Administration OK with High Gas Prices

By Mark Whittington
Wed, Feb 29, 2012


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.

The Heritage Foundation points out that hammering the American consumer with high gas prices to make electric and hybrid cars more appealing is consistent with Obama administration policy and Chu's philosophy. That explains the refusal to allow the building of the Keystone XL pipeline and to allow drilling in wide areas of the U.S. and offshore areas.

The consequences of the policy are not likely to be of benefit to the Obama administration. The Republican National Committee has already issued a video highlighting the spike in gas prices and the failure of the administration to address the issue.

Chu Backtracks on High Gas Prices


By Amy Harder
Updated: March 13, 2012

Energy Secretary Steven Chu on Tuesday retracted his now-infamous quote from 2008:“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

“I no longer share that view,” Chu said in response to questioning from Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, at a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on another topic related to DOE’s loan-guarantee program.

Chu’s 2008 quote, initially included in a Wall Street Journal article, has formed the foundation for daily Republican attacks on President Obama over high gas prices.

Chu seemed to equivocate, pause, and stumble over his words when responding to Lee’s question about high gas prices. Other comments Chu made at another hearing late last month put him in hot water on gas prices. Politico reported on Feb. 28 that Chu told a House committee that he was not working to lower gasoline prices but to wean the United States off oil. That story has since been corrected to clarify that DOE is working to both lower gas prices and wean the country off oil. But that was only after the story was picked up by Republicans and used against the administration.

During his testimony before the Senate panel on Tuesday, after stopping and starting with a few thoughts on the economy and the department’s commitment to alternatively fueled vehicles, Chu told Lee:“Of course we don’t want the price of gasoline to go up. We want it to go down.”

New polling out this week found that the president's disapproval rating is going up alongside high gasoline prices, which averaged $3.80 per gallon nationwide on Tuesday.

After the hearing, Chu told reporters that he changed his view from 2008 because of the fragile economy.

“There is a real hardship that Americans are suffering at the gasoline pump,” Chu said.“The recovery is fragile. Another spike in gasoline prices could put that recovery at jeopardy. So there are many, many reasons why we do not want the price of gasoline to go up.”

It was a republican Governor who blocked the continuation of the pipeline, not President Obama, you fing idiot. If there is a spill, the aquaphor underneath it would be contaminated. No water, no life...you don't need oil when you are dead from dehydration.

That pipeline has been running for years so take your scare tactics and shove them up your FAUX news ass. God you people are so stupid.

Eberle's phone has been disconnected, but his publicist, Jennifer Ohman, said that the large number of Web visitors attracted by the controversy "were not the kind of hits we were looking for. The attention by and large was negative. If anything, it seemed to fuel the fire."
Media Matters, a liberal watchdog group based in Washington, D.C, unmasked Guckert after he asked President Bush about working with Democrats who were "divorced from reality."

Since then, bloggers have linked Guckert to gay porn Web sites and prostitution.

Naked photos of Guckert have been widely circulated on the Web.

"They probably found it difficult to go on without Jeff Gannon who seemed to be the backbone of their editorial operation," said Media Matters' director David Brock. "To the extent that Talon News was a vehicle for a fair amount of misinformation, it's probably a good development."

Eberle has maintained that Talon News was a "straight news site," despite flashing advertisements for conservative causes and publications that reproduce its content.

Gannon-Gate

Threatens to Expose a Huge GOP Pedophile and Male Prostitution Ring



By Wayne Madsen


Now that is has been discovered that “Jeff Gannon”(real name James D. Guckert), a “reporter” for Talon News Service, a front operation run by the conservative Republican-oriented GOPUSA.com , was using an alias as a cleared White House reporter, details are emerging that threaten to immerse the Bush administration in a major scandal.“Gannongate,” which is only now being mentioned by the mainstream news media, threatens to expose a potentially damaging GOP pedophile and male prostitution ring dating back to the 1980s and the administration of George H. W. Bush. James D. Guckert, using the name Jeff Gannon and possibly other aliases, was also running gay porn sites, one with a U.S. Marine Corps theme that solicited males for prostitution. White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said he did not realize Gannon was using an alias until recently. However, rumors in the gay community are circulating about McClellan frequenting gay bars in Austin, Texas. Gannon bypassed established Secret Service security controls, including a background check requiring a social security number, to obtain a White House press pass that identified him by an alias, an action seen by many seasoned Washington journalists as only being possible if he had favorable treatment from White House staff, especially McClellan and his predecessor, Ari Fleischer. One White House reporter expressed revulsion over the fact that it was Fleischer who took away press credential from the late long-time White House correspondent Sarah McClendon and handed them to Gannon.

Yes indeed, mention oil and disgruntled mealy mouth marxists pop up like Tulips in springtime. It's time for these oil hating runts to put up or shut up. So I'm ordering by executive privilege that each the forum's mealy mouth marxists immediately rid themselves of all direct or indirectly oil related products surrounding them at this moment. Authorities have been dispatched to each of the marxist's residences for verification. If each marxist has fully complied they will be butt naked sitting on a pile of dirt and their neighbors will be laughing their asses off...Hop to it morons.
