Energy Week Ahead: House Pumps Up for Gas Price Assault on Obama

Bloomberg -- President Barack Obama’s energy policies will face a double-barreled assault this week as the Republican-controlled House holds two hearings focused on surging gasoline prices.

The Natural Resources Committee says the subject of its March 21 session is “Harnessing American Resources to Create Jobs and Address Rising Gasoline Prices.” Chairman Doc Hastings of Washington, in the Republican radio address on March 3, blamed administration policies for the jump in prices, which he noted have more than doubled since Obama took office.

What a surprise, the GOP propaganda stays up while refutations of it get pulled out. And they call Obama a fascist.

I certainly hope the Republican chair of the committee will invite at least 1% of NYMEX's 816 seat holders to present lengthy testimony.

The Republican hypocrisy is limitless.

President Obama deserves to be attacked. Why did his April 21st task force on high oil and gas prices last year do absolutely nothing? Why did he have to reconstitute that task force on March 6th this year? Why doesn't he get the CFTC to do its job stopping excessive oil speculation?

Obama wants all the credit he also gets all the blame. Keystone XL, Energy Sec Chu says high gas prices are not a concern, drilling on federal land at a halt, wants to get the oil companies to pay more (guess who will offset the cost of anything he does to increase their cost or reduce income-us). The oil companies will not eat whatever Obama tries to ram down their throat. He has done nothing and do you recall HE BLAMED BUSH when he was a senator for high gas prices? Wake up people.

Obama's energy policy is simple, green energy regardless of the cost...No coal or oil because most of our countries electric supply comes from oil fired generators, and 99% of our cars use gasoline or diesel...Why is this man sitting in the White House in the United States of America? Wake up , or go down the toilet with Obama.
