Well we have to give Chu credit for being candid. He wants higher gas prices to justify giving $500,000,000 bailouts to rich Obama contributors such as George Kaiser and the Solyndra fiasco. Chu is actually a bit refreshing compared to the lying Eric Holder who still can’t tell us about Fast and Furious over a year after a U.S. Border Control Agent was murdered.
Remember Liberals don’t care about other people’s pain. What $8.00 gallon gasoline does to the average working stiff is just collateral damage to an appartchik like Chu. The damage being done to independent truck drivers can’t be imagined. Liberals want control of the economy so they can dole out sweetheart deals like wind turbine manufacturing to political cronies.
