Obama Admin Goes on Energy-Related PR Blitz

The Blaze -- According to a new poll, 65 percent of Americans find the administration’s handling of energy issues unsatisfactory.

President Obama talks and talks, but he doesn't do anything! Way back on April 21st he announced a task force on high gas and oil prices, but they've done nothing. He announced on March 6th that he has reconstituted that task force. Why haven't they done anything for almost 11 months?

I hope at least 51% of the American electorate wakes up and see's what a disaster this nose in the air, phony has been.

What you mean is the media will do everything they can to discredit the opponent and get BO re-elected. Don't kid yourself about the real chance of sucess either.

Is Obama flying in carbon-footprint-One to NCAA Tournament in Ohio today part of the PR campaign?

He just hired the biggest PR firm in the country; maybe he should get a refund.

Like opening the barn door after the horse has run away. His lead is slipping away, and he knows it. Attempted damage control. The damage has already been done.

If you voted for Obama in '08 to prove your not a racist, then at least vote against him in 2012 to show you are not stupid.

Let's give Obama a ticket back to Chicago in November. Once there he can invest HIS money in all the green ventures he desires.

Obama started the Iran embargo. He nixed the Keystone pipeline. He is in love with immediate "green" though we are in no way capable of being there yet. One of his cabinet leaders, Chu, said that he wants the U.S. to have gasoline priced like Europe. So blitz those facts.

Only 65% find him unsatisfactory? That must mean that 35% of the population does not drive nor pay energy bills.

Get ready to hear Obama manipulating others, claiming that he needs more time for his green energy policies.
