Gov Barbour (R-MS) attacked Presidents energy policies. He is claiming Obama wants
gasoline prices driven up to European levels. He is attacking his policy saying Obama wants it as current policy
to 'raise fuel prices'.

What the frak!



Edited to add: To clarify, I just can't understand how anyone could WANT higher fuel
prices or think they are good for the country.......

Wants it to become profitable to extract what little oil south-central MS has sitting there?


I know this: I've only been here a few weeks and I still miss TN more and more every day.

Well, okay then Chief. Seems like a splendid idea. Nevermind that EU and US are entirely different.

I was just in Italy. $1.40 Euro per litre. That's about $8/gallon.

Should do wonders for the economy.

As I understood it Barbour was saying that the administration (Obama) wants gas prices to rise to EU levels.

He can kiss his presidential aspirations good-bye.
Now, he (Barbour) may consider running again, but I really don't think he has a shot at winning.

BHO can kiss Barbour's ass.

well obama does want the prices of fuel to go up....... remember the energy thing they wanted to pass...( carbon bill maybe?... obama came right out and said gas would jump at least $1.00 over night, and home electricity, fuel cost would skyrocket.

Please clarify and links..

All I'm finding is that the "O" wants prices to those levels, not Barbour..

Barbour is saying OBAMA wants gas prices to rise.

Barbour is not saying HE (Barbour) wants gas prices to rise.

Here's what he said.

"I tell ya, in 2008, $4 gasoline brought my state to its knees before Wall Street melted down," Barbour said, "and we’ve blown through $3 a gallon on our way to $4, and it reminds me of what the Secretary of Energy said in 2008, Secretary [Steven] Chu, then Dr. Chu, said what we really need in the United States to get the cost of gasoline up to where it is in Europe $8 or $9 a gallon. We don’t need that where I am."

Gunwritr, I am disappoint. - Nevermind, I see you fixed it.

OP should clarify which side he supports.

Energy prices needs to go down. Republicans need to attact the Kenyan and his policies. Bravo for Barbour!

If gas got as high as it is in Europe this country would shut down

yep.

euro-level fuel prices won't "inspire new green technology" here in america. it'll quite literally grind everything to a halt.
