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.
Chus 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.

RE: Energy Secretary Steven Chu resigns
When are we going to CLOSE DOWN this useless Carter established department?
Let’s do that and save $31 billion a year.
These guys are nothing but front men. Hagel spilled the beans yesterday when he said as sec of def he was not going to be in a policy making roll. If the cabinet are not policy makes, who is....obviously the Czars and his excellency. When things to bad, as they are designed to do in most cases, the cabinet member is the insulation. Just like in the mob, no one speaks to the capo but the underboss, so too in this moblike administration.
If he needs his roof painted white I know there’s a couple million people who need (and want) work.
Another big government, nanny-state socialist twarted in his desire to show us that he could make collectivism work where Marx, Engles and Stalin failed.
The SOB should be in prison.
EFF YU CHU! His replacement will be worse. Al Gore?
Too bad the best white paint ever made contained LEAD...........
This Administration has ABOVE THE LAW down to a science. Just about each person that he named to his first Administration could have been tried in court, but it is tough to have the law work when Holder is at the controls. And then they leave and go back into the private sector.
Hey, when they re-enter the private sector, can civil suits be filed?
The poster child for why scientific achievement does not necessarily correlate with common sense.
Good riddance. This guy is an ivory tower academic with no understanding of the real world.
Off to form a PAC or become a lobbyist and make some serious Algore-type mullah.
His goal was $10 per gallon gasoline.
He obviously has to leave because he only destroyed
the American economy “half way”.
His replacement will continue the march of
the Dear Leader to full American poverty.
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.”
Bye, moron. Maybe you can get a job painting roofs white.
Another sign that Obama is about to throw the Enviros under the bus and approve the Keystone Pipeline.
I here Algore is looking for a new gig.
I wish I was kidding
I hear Algore is looking for a new gig.
I wish I was kidding
Glad to see him go. Chu and Reid cost me my job at yucca mountain.
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.
Rats jumping ship again.
Best news I’ve heard all week.
Don’t let the door hit Chu where the good lord split Chu.
Yeah!! Loved those paint chips! Yummy!
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 be "focused like a laser" on finding someone who will kill the energy resources in this country for good
He bit off more than he could, Chu....
Does Steven Chu?
Chu Choo Chooing outta D.C.?
I smell a scandal. Was he sending emails to Richard Windsor?
This “Little Chu Chu” LEFT the track a long time ago.
As the old joke goes, When God gave out brains, Chu thought he said trains, and he’s been riding the rails ever since.
Once this leftist SOB is out of office, I’ll tell you a story about this little crapola which will expose him for the schmuck that he is.
Well, whatchu know?
When Steven was a kid he was fighting with his young brother doing bad things to him and their sister complained to their mother: “Ma, Chu pee Chu!”
the Obama Bus has so many bodies under it, the tires never get a chance to touch the ground
i guess he finally gave out all the kickbacks to obama’s false-front green energy company donors.
Chu’s replacement will be much more dangerous, likely a straw man while the department is run by Obama directly from the white house, the way Obama ran the State Department.
It will be the same now for the larger cabinet. Obama will be dictator, and he will micromanage it all based on Obama’s fascist principles. Among Obama’s goals is to use the cabinet to identify his enemies in industry, and to define his capitalist cronies. Then the war begins against those Obama must destroy in order to control America as a dictator.He could care less about the economy.
