Posted on 04/24/2012 5:20:20 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Obama administration official on Tuesday accused lawmakers in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives of living in a world of "fairy tales and falsehoods" when it comes to energy.
In a stinging rebuke to the administration's critics, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar strongly defended his department's record on energy policy.
Referring to a world of fairy tales and falsehood in the nation's capital, Salazar said in a speech at the National Press Club that "it's in that imaginary world where we see the continuing and growing divide in the energy debate in America."
"The imagined fairy tale world is the invention of campaign years and political rhetoric. I think you can find its edge when you walk out of the House of Representatives," he added.
Salazar's comments come as the White House works to shake off any taint from surging fuel prices ahead of the presidential election in November.
Instead of calling for more U.S. oil and gas drilling, Salazar said lawmakers should recognize that there is no silver bullet for high gasoline prices.

And this “official” had a degree in what?
“Pot, meet Kettle”.
In the alinsky world, accuse your enemies of doing what you yourself are engaging in, namely pie in the sky ideas of solving the energy crisis, like algae and wind. What a douche.
And the media dutifully writes it down and passes it off as the truth, without even a smidgen of care.
And that is. How you end up with 30 percent unemployment, $4 dollar gas, millions of forclosures, and no freedom.
President Barak “It’s not my fault” Obama.
A make-everything-worse politician’s mantra of blame is his only game.
All of that puts the U.S. in a position that war for oil or
complete economic collapse will be our only choices.
You can't frustrate every source of domestic energy
without consequences. Our enemies will blackmail us
to the extent that we are vulnerable to blackmail.
0bama, the Democrats and RINOs are leading us into a real war for oil.
A war we won't have the energy to fight.
A war we don't need to fight because we have our own resources.
"As a result of the uncertainties surrounding the offshore drilling moratorium, we are actively seeking international opportunities to keep our rigs fully employed," Dickerson said. "We greatly regret the loss of U.S. jobs that will result from this rig relocation."
It is not just Gulf operations that are being effected either.
Let's not leave the refineries out.
Then there are the land-based oil leases.

"A federal judge on Wednesday questioned Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's justification for canceling 77 drilling leases sold by the Bush administration around national parks in Utah."

Laugh of the day.
the incompetence of this administration across the board is breathtaking
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Gosh Secretary Salazar, you know... you’re right! Maybe one of the things you could do to help us poor stupid deniers to see the reality of your position is to turn off everything in the Interior Department and run it entirely (including your cars now, no cheating!) on solar, wind and other alternatives that you so rightly claim we Luddites deny. Go ahead and set the example for the rest of us. Then the Executive branch could go next...
Ken Salazar, in `Best in Show’
Ken Salazar: No, that’s a bear in a, in a bee costume.
Ken Salazar: This? This is a fish. This is a fish! You know what? Just shut up.
Ken Salazar: I didn’t ask for your opinion. I asked for a toy that you don’t have!
Ken Salazar: It’s in that imaginary world where we see the continuing and growing divide in pet toys in this hotel and throughout America.
The imagined fairy tale world of pet toys is the invention of conservative haters, the American InHumane Society, the Society for the Intensification of Cruelty to Animals and the American Kennel & Stun Club. You Norwegian-German—whatever you are—just shut up!
You don’t have a renewable Busy Bee. You have fossil fuels. And they’re bad. Bad. I think you can find its edge when you walk out of the House of Representatives. In fact, the president loves dogs. You’re all f*****s. There, I said it! That’s all I have to say. Reuters guy, clean this up, will you?
I don’t think it’s “incompetence”....I think it’s intentional.
As opposed to what I call the Obama/Don Quixote (chasing windmills) energy plan.
Projection from a Liberal. Socialism always fails, always.
Hey Salazar: throw open all your government lands to drilling and see how fast the price of gas goes down!! You Obamabots are living in a green fantasy world.
Prevaricating and/or stupidity.
Critics may be in “fairyland” but the nobama minions should be in Leavenworth.
“And this official had a degree in what?”
I think salazar used to be a rino. He has a degree in mental masturbation just like most libtards.
Always accuse the other side of doing what you are doing wrong and say its all their fault. That just about sums up obamanation.
