WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who won a Nobel Prize in physics but came under questioning for his handling of a solar energy loan, is stepping down.

Chu offered his resignation to President Barack Obama in a letter Friday. He said he will stay on at least until the end of February and may stay until a successor is confirmed.

Chu’s departure had been widely expected and follows announcements by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson and Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, that they are leaving.

All those mentioned have so much to answer to/for as to being part o a group that would sell out the USA to others especially Islam. When the reckoning time comes these boot lickers will have to face their past working for Obama.

Take comfort in the fact his replacement will be even worse.

“Potential replacements for Chu include former North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and former Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire.”

Another sign that Obama is about to throw the Enviros under the bus and approve the Keystone Pipeline.

Resigned? Was he still in office? Didn’t his term expire when Obamas did? I don’t recall him being recomfirmed.

July 2007 - Oil reaches $150 a barrel.
Weeks later it was at $33 a barrel.
Who did not get the HORRIBLE TRUTH about it will only get it at the BIG BANG. In other words, in the coming weeks.

Bye bye Dr. Chu.

So sorry you never realized your dream of getting gasoline prices up to $6/gallon. Maybe your replacement will do better. But don’t feel too bad. After all, you’ve got the astounding success a Solyndra and others to hang on to.

I am sure Obama will try to replace Chu with someone even more of a moonbat wackco...if that is possible...

I am sure Obama will be "focused like a laser" on finding someone who will kill the energy resources in this country for good
