Haley Barbour: Obama Is Deliberately Trying To Drive Up Energy Prices

Obama has said it himself in his campaign for President. For him to accomplish his clean energy goals, energy prices will have to increase significantly. How do you do that? By restricting the supply of normal energy sources.

I want to believe that the President has the welfare of this nation at heart and that his policies, as misguided as they are, are his attempt to do good. However, looking at the destructive nature of his agenda, it is hard for me to believe that his priorities are with the American people and not with those seeking a new world order. I believe that his Muslim upbringing is also getting in the way of him making informed decisions in the current crises in the Mid-East.

Either Obama is inept or he is consciously following the teachings of Alinsky and Cloward-Piven for the destruction of our way of life: "The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse."

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) is accusing the Obama administration of deliberately driving up energy costs, comparing the destructiveness of high gas prices to the financial troubles of Wall Street.

"This administration's policies have been designed to drive up the cost of energy in the name of reducing pollution, in the name of making very expensive alternative fuels more economically competitive," said Barbour in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC on Tuesday morning.

Barbour cited 2008 comments by Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who floated the idea of gradually raising gasoline taxes to convince more Americans to adopt energy-friendly habits. "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," he said at the time. President Obama has dismissed the idea of raising the gasoline tax, and in 2009, Chu also distanced himself from his earlier remarks, saying that it would be "completely unwise to want to increase the price of gasoline."

"In 2008, $4 gasoline brought my state to its knees before Wall Street melted down," said Barbour, underscoring his point.
