    Maybe someone can go and find some from the Daily Kos for you to address.

    Just make a guess. What would gas cost if McCain had won? Think it might be higher than $1.86?
    Wait wait wait......addressing something written by the Heritage foundation isn't something worthwhile, but when Pete spews forth his crap from Media Matters the conservatives on this board are ripped a new one for knocking the source without addressing the content. Why is that?

    I do believe that goes both ways.

    Last I checked, my name's not Pete. I can't control what he does or what the hard left on this board does.

    I read the talking points from the blog that were posted. Same old right wing talking points. I addressed a few of them without directly saying I did.

    Energy Secretary Chu Admits Administration OK with High Gas Prices

    COMMENTARY | President Barack Obama's Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices.

    Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.

    The translation goes like this........"President Obama is not able to lead the country in the direction we would like as he's not a leader so we have to hope for artificial means to convince people to do what what we want".

    Wrong translation, and I do wonder why you posted what is essentially a slightly hysterical blog opinion piece rather than the underlying Politico article. Anyhoo, here's your translation:

    Gasbag Republican moron congressman: "Gas prices are going up and I'm stupid!"

    Sec'y Chu: "Yes you are, and you have lots of company, which is why we are working on long term solutions."

    Both articles say the same thing. Chu is fine with high prices. High prices have always been his desired goal.

    The latter with much less inflammatory rhetoric. The even less inflammatory interpretation is that Chu is not going to do anything to artificially influence current prices.

    From your perspective, better he is running the show than I, you can bet on that... since the best thing for the economy, in the long term, would be a stabilised price of, say, $4.00 per gallon (if the free market price falls below that, an automatic tax kicks in to return it to that level). This would stabilise auto production as well as alternative energy investment, compared to the yo-yo effect currently in operation. Chu/Obama are simply too chicken to implement this badly needed policy.

    Just out of curiosity, what is Chu doing/not doing that raises gas prices?

    So what. I believe some inflammatory rhetoric is deserved here. Anyone who would shrug off the problems that expensive gas is going to cause the lower classes should be targeted.

    I didn't say that he could do anything. He does what he is told.
