Could he be any further detached from reality?
Energy Secretary Steven Chu said he would give himself a “higher than A-minus” grade on keeping gas prices low at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Tuesday morning.
At the Oversight Committee hearing, held to address the Energy Department’s green energy loan program, Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) asked Chu how he would grade his performance on reducing gas prices. Chu said “higher than A-minus,” citing the department’s aggressive work to develop alternatives to petroleum-based fuel, such as natural gas and electric.
At a previous Oversight Committee Hearing, Chu said he would give himself an A-minus grade for his performance so far as Energy Secretary.
