Obama Defends Energy Policies

Vigorously defending his policies, President Barack Obama ridiculed critics of renewable energy sources Thursday, calling them naysayers and comparing them to the flat-earthers of yesteryear. Obama did not mention his detractors by name, merely referring to them as “professional politicians.” But his targets were clear. “A lot of the folks who are running for a certain office who shall go unnamed, they've been talking down new sources of energy,” Obama told a crowd of students at Prince George's Community College in Washington's Maryland suburbs. “They dismiss wind power. They dismiss solar power. They make jokes about biofuels. They were against raising fuel standards. I guess they like gas-guzzlers,” he said/CBS News. More here.

Question: Who do you blame for the current high gas prices?
