Washington Free Beacon -- Energy Secretary Steven Chu said he would give himself a “higher” than A-minus grade on keeping gas prices low at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Tuesday morning.
At the Oversight Committee hearing, held to address the Energy Department’s green energy loan program, Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) asked Chu how he would grade his performance on reducing gas prices. Chu said “higher than (A-minus),” citing the department’s aggressive work to develop alternatives to petroleum-based fuel, such as natural gas and electric.
At a previous hearing in March, Chu said he would give himself an A-minus grade for his performance so far as Energy Secretary.
Blog author's comments - Secretary Chu's grade for himself is extremely high considering the rise in the price of gas. But the voters will be grading the Obama Administration in November.
Let's hope that when Obama said no to the Keystone pipeline it will come back to haunt and help remove him and his regime from office.
