Skip to comments.Chu: I would give myself an ‘A’ for energy prices
Posted on 03/20/2012 10:37:14 AM PDT by Nachum
Energy Secretary Steven Chu told a House panel Tuesday that hed give himself top marks when asked to grade his policies effects on energy prices. Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House committee on Oversight and Government Reform, asked President Obamas top energy official if hed grade himself with an A minus on controlling the cost of gasoline at the pump.
Chu responded by saying hed give himself a better grade than that.
The tools we have at our disposal are limited, but I would I say I would give myself a little higher in that since I became Secretary of Energy, Ive been doing everything I can to get long-term solutions, Chu said.
Chu would give himself the top grade on gas prices despite that fact that the average price for a gallon of gas just hit $3.87 the highest ever recorded in the month of March, according to ABC News.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
With grade inflation so rampant A is the new C.
I could add what the A stands for. How about you?
“I would give myself an A for energy prices”
Of course, he cheated on the test.
I prefer a nut in his own shell.
It’s a pass-fail question, dumbass.
This guy Chu like his boss Obama live in a green fantasy land. Their bizarre war on carbon energy sources is causing misery and impoverishing the United States.
He’s grading himself on a curve??!!?
If he was truly honest, oops did I say that about a leftist, he would give himself a C- or D+. I mean really, he is only 50% of the way to $9-10/gallon gas where these folks want it.
An A- is good for now. He wanted them as high as they pay in Europe. Though they are getting there, they haven't quite reached that level. But Obama's Energy, Interior and EPA appointees are doing what they can to make sure Chu will get that "A."
How do you deal with such arrogance? With ridicule.
“Baseball rules wrong...man with 4 balls cannot walk.”
“Man who fart in church sits in own pew.”
“Never eat skittles, play leapfrog with unicorn.”
“Many men smoke—Few Man Chu.”
you knew when he arrived wearing this shirt that there might be self-esteem issues :o)
His goal is to drive up gasoline prices to European levels. He deserves an B+ for accomplishing the doubling of gas prices. I will give him an A when gas hits $8 per gallon. I hate to think about what his other goals are.
Surprisingly, I would give him an “A” too.
That would be “A”-hole, by way of clarification.
“The tools we have at our disposal are limited”
Ever heard of Keystone Pipeline?
These people HAVE NO SHAME!
Yeah. And it needs to be tattooed across his forehead.
Obama’s State of the Union address, that the future is in battery operated cars. He said that, by 2015, a million of these cars will be on American roads. So he put your money where his mouth is and gave GM $240 million to develop the flop that is the Chevy Volt.
He then gave a Korean company $150 million for the dangerous and inefficient batteries that went in these cars. Batteries that would last for less than 40 miles before needing 8 hours to recharge.
Rrrrrrr - Put A Tiger In Your Tank !
All in this administration are NUTS, completely freaking off the chart NUTS! They THINK they are so damn smart but in fact are STUPID!

Doesn't setting a new record deserve an "A?" If prices had hit $5.00 a gallon, he would have given himself an A+, I'm sure.
An “A” would be correct if that were the next lower grade after “Z-”.
So unreal, I had to bookmark it. This should be a warning that something is seriously corrupt and amiss.
I hope the Republicans run ads showing video-taped statements of this super incompetent lunatic and his vile boss's statements 24/7 until November.
The question remains, though, as to whether the misery is the goal,
or if they truly believe in that utopia on the other side of the misery.
True communists do believe in the utopia, and justify any and all misery inducing policies that will lead there.
However, 0bama has another factor playing into his behavior - he HATES America.

Too easy and he'll like it. A fully charged cattle prod up his arse would make a more direct point about the uses of energy like electricity.
Apparently he’s the tallest midget in the room!
they call it “being inside the bubble” for a reason...
One more Liberal Socialist advantage is that high energy prices contribute to a depressed economy and brings the little people to their knees in soup lines begging for a handout
FDR was a pioneer at this strategy
They are not lying when they think they are doing well,
the more they destroy the economy , the closer they are to their goal
Marxists are a hoot! They don’t love anyone as much as they love themselves.
OK this is getting really pathetic now, we know he wants higher gas prices, we know obama does because they think we’ll be forced into golf carts.
The MSM know it, we all know it but for crying out loud to now try and tell us he wants lower prices and for the MSM to actually report that is beyond pathetic.
This admin should have been toast two years ago , infact they should never have been elected and Hillary would have been the nominee for the Dems if the MSM had done their job, no not the propaganda socialist job but the job their title states.
Dr.Chu has the eyes of a dead fish.
Why hasn’t this twerp Chu solved the so-called energy crisis yet? Obama said he had a Nobel Prize or something and was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
He’s a classic example of just how perverted and sick a liberal mind can become.
He belongs in a padded room or in a straight jacket or both.
He has helped fulfill Obama’s campaign promise of skyrocketing energy prices, of course he gets top marks. He is simply carrying out Obama’s policies as is his job.
I’d give him an ‘A’ for being a BS artist.
Audacity from a capital a—hole!
