Barack Obama’s Energy Secretary admits his goal isn’t to bring down the price of gas

February 29, 2012

  Barack Obama once famously stated that his energy policy would necessarily make the price of energy skyrocket; he also has stated in the past that he didn’t have a problem with the high gas prices during President Bush’s reign, and only lamented the fact that gas prices rose too quickly and this didn’t afford the American people enough time to get used to the new prices.

  Barack Obama’s Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, also quipped that it was his goal to coerce the American people out of their cars, and Energy Secretary Steven Chu stated that he would like to see gas prices in the United States reach the same level as prices in Europe.

  So it really isn’t all that surprising that yesterday the aforementioned Energy Secretary admitted it is not the goal of the Obama regime to do anything about lowering the gas prices.

“But is the overall goal to get our price” of gasoline down, asked  Nunnelee.

“No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and  strengthen our economy

  All the evidence presented in the words of Barack Obama himself, and those within his cabinet, point to the fact that Barack Obama seems to have no problem with Americans paying exorbitant gasoline prices, and in fact they appear to be willing to let Americans suffer at the pump in order to use this crisis to promote Barack Obama’s failed green initiative policy.

  Barack Obama’s energy policies are having the very effect on gas prices as he  had hoped they would. As I wrote above, Barack Obama wants to use the gas price crisis to win over public support for his green energy policies, but these initiatives simply do not work, and the only people who have benefitted from green energy initiatives through the stimulus bill have been Democrat donors who just happen to own the companies which Barack Obama funnelled billions of dollars to before they failed.

  Barack Obama wants to double down on the same failed (?) policies which have helped to contribute to this crisis, meanwhile as the regime does nothing average Americans are struggling just to make ends meet.

    I just do not understand how even one American can continue to support Obama. I guess I’ve been gone too long. I don’t know America any more.

      I don’t know Jim. I’m here all the time, and I’m shaking my head more and more.

        The American people were duped the first time around and I am shaking my head at the fact that the Republican candidates are so weak that they are running neck and neck with Obama in the polls. Obama should be easily defeated but it is looking more and more likely that we will be reelected.

      I like to blame the media for Obama’s rise because they protected his radical view and his radical past, but the truth is that if people were paying attention they would have seen this on their own. I know I, and many other bloggers, did but we simply weren’t able to convince enough people. Hopefully his actions will do the talking in this election and we can right a very serious wrong.

    Hello, I’m NEW, but not that “new”. Chevy has brought back the electric car,(VOLT), at $40k a pop. They KILLED an older version that cost a quarter as much and went 1 hour more on charge. Ford gives us a Mustang that would have given us fits in 1968. For three years the “Mini-Cooper_D” has not been allowed to cross the border to an American roadway… getting 75+M.P.G..
    If Ford didn’t make a deal with Rockefeller to change his ORIGINAL ELECTRIC CARS into GAS powered we’d NOT BE HERE.

    I wonder how long, if ever, it will take the American public to throw out these little socialist dictators…..WM

    You know… I could have sworn four years ago we were being told that the president cannot affect the price of gas and it was all supply and demand.


    • March 1, 2012 8:31 pm

      Yes, and during those same four years the left told us the president could so now I am waiting for them to make good on this promise.

    How is it that you can dismantle Obama in a few paragraphs, but the Republican candidates are locked in this epic struggle for poll numbers?


    • March 1, 2012 8:33 pm

      A great question! The Republicans should be able to take advantage of this, but they don’t seem to be able to. They have let the media control the conversation, so while Americans are conserned about gas prices and the economy the Republicans have been trapped into talking about social issues. It is time for them to stand up and take on Obama on the issues that really matter.

    There should,be none stop ads by the GOP exposing all of this nonsense.


    • March 1, 2012 8:34 pm

      If the situation were reversed we know the Democrats would expose all of this. The Republicans just don’t seem to be adept at getting their message out to the public for general consumption.

    I was listening to America’s Morning News on the way to work and they had a guest that listed several different things that the President could do that would affect the price of future gasoline and oil. By doing so, it would also help lower the current prices. For President Obama to make the blanket statement that there is nothing he can do is simply false.

    There should be no surprise with Chu… when Obama indicated he would be chosen this man was well on the record stating he wanted European levels for the price.

    The interesting thing with Obama and his people is there were no surprises… people just didn’t pay attention or believe.

    You can expect gas prices to rise every spring. It seems to get earlier and earlier each year. That’s because oil futures traders know demand for gas rises in the summer. They therefore start buying oil futures contracts in the spring in anticipation of that price rise…
