‘Long-term energy strategy’

What a red herring. “Long-term energy strategy” is a phrase that takes the focus off immediate problems and poor leadership. As David Gregory pointed out to White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe on Meet the Press, presidential candidate Obama promised to address rising gasoline prices — while standing in front of gasoline pumps. When Plouffe says “we need a long-term energy strategy,” viewers ought to ask why we don’t have one yet — and why the President hasn’t led his administration to offer one.
