Obama's decision to release oil from America's strategic reserve is another bone-headed, political decision designed to rescue his collapsing state in the polls. It is bizarre that a President who claims to support alternatives to fossil fuel energy objects to the rising price of fossil fuel energy. There really is no other way to stimulate alternative energy than to let prices of fossil fuel energy rise and let the market produce alternatives. There simply is no other way.
This is truly an administration that believes government can work wonders. The only wonder is why they believe that. The sobering facts of what has happened to the economy under this administration is a compelling testament to the failure of government to create jobs and improve economic performance. Now, these folks think they can solve energy problems by lowering the price of fossil fuels. You wonder if anyone in this administration knows anything about economics.
