Allan West (R-FL) on Obama's Failed Energy Policy

Yahoo posted an article about Congressman Allen West complaining about Obama's failed energy policy, but entitled it "Representative's West Ironic Complaint About Fuel Prices". It seems this article took issue with Congressman West filling up a 2008 Hummer H3 that performed with 16-18 mpg.

In light of the failed electrical vehicles such as the Volt and given our huge, untapped natural fossil fuel reserves, what the heck are our alternatives?  It certainly ain't alternative energy - at least not in this decade! 

I sure wish my trucks got as good as fuel mileage!! West paid $70 for a fillup, which is considerabley less than what I pay to fill up my Super Duty.

Rep. West's statement is as follows:

"People have asked me before is there any area where I could praise President Obama? Certainly, he has an impeccable penchant for understanding the power of the bully pulpit. President Obama is also very adept at promulgating deceptive language masquerading as policy, actually just insidious political gimmickry. This "tax policy" is an example as well as today's speech on his "energy policy" shall be. Here is the bottom line, last night it took 70 dollars to fill the tank of my 2008 H3 Hummer,
what is it costing you? What does it cost the President to fill his gas tank?"

The article went to allude that Congressman West's was drawing negative attention. They said "attention". I say their intent was to make it seem like "negative attention" while the vast majority of the comments were neutral or said that gas prices were too high and the Administration wasn't doing anything about it.

Can't fool all the people, all the time. That's a good thing for Democrats to remember. If they don't we the people will remind them come November.
