Chu: I would give myself an A for energy prices
The Daily Caller ^ | 03/20/2012 | Mathew Boyle

Posted on 03/20/2012 10:37:14 AM PDT by Nachum

Energy Secretary Steven Chu told a House panel Tuesday that he’d 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 Obama’s top energy official if he’d grade himself with an “A minus” on “controlling the cost of gasoline at the pump.”

Chu responded by saying he’d 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, I’ve 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.

Awarding oneself grades. The self-esteem movement moves out of the classroom, and into the halls of power.

With grade inflation so rampant A is the new C.

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.

Confucious say:

“Man who fart in church sits in own pew.”

“Never eat skittles, play leapfrog with unicorn.”

“Many men smoke—Few Man Chu.”

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.

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.

He set a new record:

Chu would give himself the top grade on gas prices despite because of the 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.

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-”.

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.

Liberal socialists absolutly love super high energy prices because high cost discourages energy usage and saves the planet from global warming

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

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.

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.
