Skip to comments.Chu renounces his desire for higher gas prices

President Obama's Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, renounced his previously-stated desire to see gas prices rise to match European levels in order to motivate alternative energy research, telling the Senate today that he wants gas prices to fall for the sake of the economy. "We have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," Chu said in 2008. When reminded of that comment today during his congressional testimony, Chu backed away from that position. "I no longer share that view," Chu told Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, today.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
LOL! I guess the poll numbers are making them nervous.
Now, they are very transparent indeed :)
Wow. This man has the insight of a Nobel prize winner. What was your first clue, Sherlock? What a f*cking dope.
The US is absolutely doomed economically with clowns like this at the helm.
Chu is a Chicom liar.
This clown is on the record all over the place calling for high gas prices and people getting out of their cars. Looks like the Regime is in panic mode over Obummers plummeting poll numbers.
Chu’s flip-flop follows a poll (5 days ago) that indicates that gas prices will kill Obama’s re-election prospects
Chu is lying
Nothing has changed. They still subscribe to it. But they all have a good laugh when they get together for drinks. I can hear it now, all the libs talking over martinis: "Hahahahahaha! Er, no. I don't think it is an issue, why would you think so? Look, if it even makes it to the media, they would just say that point of view was a misstatement, and he changed is view years ago. Before he was hired even. If someone makes a stink, what are they going to do, post the video to the Internet where they can gripe about it? CBS will say that "Watchdog group Media Matters has found no evidence that anyone in the administration belives this is the way to go, and that extremists on the Internet are just trying to muddy the water..."
Yeah, sorry for the misspeak. The toad. Chu, We heard you the first time, bub. We know what you meant. Bossy must have been really ticked that you let the cat out of the bag. no lice for you today!
It is particularly evident now that Imam Obama has figured out that the price of gas does matter now in his re-election bid. If he gets re-elected this nonsense of low gas prices will disappear for real and permanently. It is in their DNA.
Just as incompetent as the Jimmy-
Carter-With-A-Tan for whom he works.....
Wow, word mean something!
Taqiyyah. Say anything to get the enemy off your back until after the election.
Give me a break!
Give me a break!
Hey Stevie boy,
I’ll know you mean it when your boss (1) allows more oil drilling, (2) allows more refineries to be built, and (3) approves the Keystone pipeline.
Until then, I’ll regard your statement as campaign talk with an expiration date in early Nov, 2012.
Pffffft, Obama isn’t worried. Look, he told the UMW he was going to kill the coal industry. He is doing all he can to make good on that, and the UMW is still all in on Obama.
This is a minor hiccup that the enemedia will be charged with making go away.
