Obama Strikes Back at Critics

President Barack Obama is taking the gloves off as he contends for another term as Commander-in-Chief by responding to criticism of his energy policies and his role in controlling gasoline prices. Using his weekly radio and internet address Saturday to underscore his administration’s work to develop alternative energy sources and increase fuel efficiency, Obama said “I’m going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future. I hope politicians from both sides of the aisle join me.” In the same address, Obama accused the GOP of a having a “bumper sticker” approach to solving the nation’s energy problems.

The theme is but a continuation of what the President has been saying during his two out-of-town trips last week and during a White House news conference on Wednesday. “We can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices—not when we consume 20 percent of the world’s oil,” Obama said in the address.

After 39 straight days of increases, political fears of a war with an oil-rich Iran, and a higher demand of oil in other growing nations, can Obama steer the country into greener pastures with a cleaner energy policy?
