Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama’s Energy secretary: Nope, I have no desire to lower gas prices

I don’t want to ever hear a liberal lament gas prices.  When Uhhhhh-bama was running in 2008, he said he’d be totally cool with higher gas prices.  So when a liberal complains about the cost of fuel, I’d simply remind them that B.O. is only sad that gas is at $4 and not higher.

Anywho, his environut Energy Secretary said he didn’t care about high gas prices.  Of course, considering this is the same tool who said he wanted Europe’s ludicrous gas prices here, this should come as no surprise:

High gasoline prices will make research into such alternatives more urgent, Chu said.

“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,” Chu replied. “We think that if you consider all these energy policies, including energy efficiency, we think that we can go a long way to becoming less dependent on oil and [diversifying] our supply and we’ll help the American economy and the American consumers.”

There you go.  Just keep them tires inflated and get tune-ups, people.

Newt blasted Chu and had some career advice:

“President Obama must announce today in his Nashua address that he is firing Secretary Chu and replacing him with a pro-American-energy appointment,” said a statement from Gingrich, who cited a POLITICO story about Chu’s appearance before a House Appropriations subcommittee.

“If he doesn’t, then the American people will know the president is still committed to his radical ideology, which wants to artificially raise the cost of energy,” Gingrich added.

“Yesterday [Obama’s] secretary of anti-energy Dr. Chu literally testified in Congress that he did not favor lowering the price of gasoline, that they had no alternative policy to lower the price of gasoline and that his goal was to get us on to other things,” Gingrich said.

“Dr. Chu is apparently a brilliant scientist,” the Republican presidential hopeful said. “I’m for allowing him to go back to science as rapidly as possible. In fact I suspect the American people would chip in to buy the airplane ticket later on today.”

Oh, here’s a kneeslapper: Chu said he’s been a pretty awesome steward of our money, giving himself a good solid A-.  Yeah…an A-minus:

CBS News counted 12 clean energy companies that are having trouble after collectively being approved for more than $6.5 billion in federal assistance. Five have filed for bankruptcy: The junk bond-rated Beacon, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy and Solyndra.

Throw in the Keystone Pipeline decision, and it’s clear that this administration is lethally hostile to American energy production.

Here’s the thing: These morons think that if gas gets too expensive, people will demand alternative energy.  But here’s the thing: we HAVE been demanding alternative energy, since the Carter years (which seem to have apparently returned).  But until alternative energy is mass available, fills our energy needs in the same or better ways as fossil fuels, and doesn’t cost us an arm and a leg, it is NOT going to happen!  Driving up the cost of energy by refusing to increase domestic oil production is like refusing to get a job (boy, liberals can relate to that, huh?) because you’re waiting to win the lottery: stop wasting your time, because it isn’t going to friggin’ happen!

Please.  For the love of God and all that is holy.  Get his economic illiterate Marxist ideologue the hell out of our House come November.

  1. Well, someone is clearly racist….both against a black man AND an Asian man. THAT IS SARCASM, for those liberals who accidentally stumble into this post!!!
    Yeah, so, the guy gives himself a solid “A minus” (I’d remove the letters “m” and “i” from that, personally) by funding doomed companies while blocking self-dependency with regard to oils. Wow, about like Obama putting himself in the top 4…self evaluation among the ideologically inept is a great thing!
    I know, lets refuse to even BUY oil or gasoline, and just wait until the hopeful day of yet-undiscovered or exploitable resources. It all global shipping stops, just imagine the clean air we would all enjoy as we WAIT for someone ELSE to invent some space-age new energy source!
    That’s about Chu’s strategy….make what we have too expensive so people will WANT something new…even though there isn’t anything new to SWITCH to….how do you say “moron” in Liberal-speek? Is the word for “moron” Obama or Gore?? (or those who vote for them?)

  2. Wow! Another cabinet member stating that the administration had no plans for improving or alleviating a problem of this country. Remember “tax cheat” Geithner stating that the administration had no plan for improving the economy? Now we have this bonehead Chu stating that the administration has no plans for bringing the price of gas down? Then he pats himself on the back for throwing away our money on energy which is not viable nor inexpensive. This is just beyond nuts to me.
    It is way beyond time for this administration to be kicked out on their collective butts. Including the shotus.
    Where are our elected reps in D.C. with all this evidence that this regime is intent on destroying our country? Probably filling up their pockets via the lobbyists for the “alternative” energy crowd using our money to buy off those who are supposed to look out for our interests. That seems to be what they do the best.
    Liberalism is a serious mental disorder.

  5. it’s clear that this administration is lethally hostile to American energy production.

    And I quote…. “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

    I wonder how long it’s going to take before the apathetic realize that this idiot is destroying the country. His voting base won’t ever care….but there are a lot of otherwise reasonable people who are simply sleeping through this mess because they don’t want to be bothered.

    He is DELIBERATELY destroying the country. Everything he touches turns to cr@p! It’s like the reverse Midas touch.

    WAKE UP AMERICA!!! We won’t survive another 4 years of the Marxist idiot.
