Obama Adviser David Plouffe: Who Are You Going to Trust on Energy Policy – Republicans or Barack Obama? (Video)

Who are you going to trust?

(Gas Buddy)

After being caught in a bald-faced lie about the Keystone Pipeline (saying Nebraska rejected the pipeline) Obama’s senior adviser David Plouffe asks,
“Who do you trust more with America’s energy future?”

Gas prices are now nearly $4 a gallon nationally. Prices have doubled since Obama took office.

The Obama Administration has blocked oil drilling and development in:
** 60 sites in Utah
** Outer Continental Shelf
** Virginia
** Ohio killing 200,000 jobs
** Off Florida, where Cuba is drilling
** Alaska

Obama blew more taxpayer dollars on the exploding Chevy Volt than the entire GDP of Guyana, Belize and Djibouti.

And, then there’s this… Obama gave billions in taxpayer dollars to firms with close ties to the Obama Administration.

    Shame on you GWP for chopping out the full context of Plouffe’s comments. He was only playing Absurdity, the new Sunday morning talking head game show on Fox News where you’re given an incomplete challenge statement (like today’s “Who are you going to trust…”) and have to make up the most absurd example to win the votes of the judges panel. Plouffe won today’s Absurdity Challenge, beating out:

    “Who are you going to trust… flying an airplane: A United Airlines pilot or Mohamed Atta?”
    “Who are you going to trust… inspecting your dogfood: Purina or the Chinese government?”
    “Who are you going to trust… your retirement to: Your 401K or the Social Security Administration?”

    Pretty weak competition today and Plouffe handled the challenge masterfully.

    Oh, Multitude! You are such a sharp wit! Everyone knows that PBHO loves peoples the world over because he is a true DimmaCRAP! He has told all the AmeriKKKan peoples that the key to prosperity for everyone is through higher energy costs. It’s too bad that Dick Cheney survived his heart transplant, don’t you think? Now he’ll get even more corporate money from Halliburton! We need more Faux Newz! Oh, the H.U.M.A.N.I.T.Y!!!!!

    Your fren,

    Yep, and The Wohn Himself didn’t lobby the Congress not to vote against the project.

    Spin baby, spin.

  • Vero

    I have never trusted Obama on energy. There is zero reason ( other than being dumber than a box of rocks) to start now

  • Scott

    Republicans want to encourage private companies to drill for oil, natural gas, mine coal, and develop nuclear energy. If wind, solar and pond scum can be competitive without subsidies, all the better. But it’s not. It’s a corrupt racket to pay off Democrat donors who create uncompetive companies that can’t survive without taxpayer money.

    Obama wants to confiscate money from taxpayers then use it to pay off Democrat big wigs at alternative energy companies, including bankrupt ones like Solyndra and others. Meanwhile, the best and the brightest venture capitalists started evaluating algae a decade or more ago and deemed it to be a pipe dream that won’t be a viable economical alternative until oil reaches $600/barrel – at least 20 years from now.

    So yeah, Plouffe asked the right question. Who do you wanna trust?

  • Sandy

    That’s a no brainer. Gimme the guy who wants to build an oil pipeline to nowhere.

    That’s a no brainer. Gimme the guy who wants to build an oil pipeline to nowhere and I’ll give you a country going to hell in a handbasket.

  • Lumberjack

    Does the White House really believe they can spin the energy debate? I hope the GOP lays into him and never comes off of it. His record from Solyndra, Deep Water Horizon and the rejection of Keystone is absolutely horrible. He’s debased the currency with a gargantuan spending deficit which also effects gas prices negatively. He’s been caught saying that increasing gas prices is good for the alternative energy market too. Does he not understand that the free market rejects alternative energy at this point? The Chevy Volt and Solyndra are two prime examples. If you are not smart enough to be able to predict what will happen in the free market, DO NOT commit Trillions of Dollars to it. I wouldn’t bet $100 of my money of much of anything, but someone else’s money I’ll spend like a chimp in a beat off competition.

  • Kate

    Was that a serious question? For real? Let me think….Um..Republicans. What would I trust Obama(s) on? Nothing.

  • Multitude, the reason that question and answer are appropriate is that they are in complete accordance with the Obama no-energy-for-America policy. There is truth in Plouffe’s absurd answer is because it exposes Obama and his entire cabal for what they are.

    Who do YOU trust more?

  • bigkahuna

    Trust Obama on energy ??? Is that a joke? The man has declared war on Oil, refineries, coal, electricty and he came out and said rates for electricty should necessarily skyrocket. He said he wanted higher gas prices etc. Then he gave hundreds of billions of dollars to his crony buddy cash bundlers for green energy boondoggles that are now bankrupt. He stole GM from the shareholders and gave it to the unions as well.

    The man is a clusterf*ck of epic proportions.

    I wouldnt trust the turd to watch my dog. Try it and he will

    1. Demand you have a licensce to have a dog.
    2. Demand you have an environmental permit to let it poop in the back yard
    3. Have a water study doneand tell you what to feed it and give it to drink and demand it see a vet weekly at your expense.
    4. Demand union wages, retirement benefits, 5 days off a week, holidays
    5. Want 2 assistants to do the watching.
    6. The dog will die before the jerk is ready to watch him. ( kinda like Keystone)

    Obama is worthless leech and sucks the lifeblood from this country little by little

    Here’s is another famous quote from this Sophomoric guy, the quote: “The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers. People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on, ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’”

    White House adviser David Plouffe earned $1.5 million last year

    Plouffe was a management consultant for Boeing, the aircraft and federal defense contracting giant, and for General Electric, a multinational conglomerate that the president has touted as an innovative model for American corporations, for much of the past two years. In January, Obama, continuing his outreach to business, put Jeffrey Immelt, GE’s chief executive, in charge of a new presidential council on jobs and global competitiveness.

    Who are you going to Trust? HE ASKS. Not this administration. They are Lying and Cheating America. And as Plouffe said “THIS WILL BE A VERY BIG ELECTION.”


    Another quote from Plouffe: “Reprehensible.” “Irresponsible.” “Hard to stomach.”

    White House senior adviser David Plouffe did not mince words Sunday when talking about the reaction by Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich to President Barack Obama’s comments on the Trayvon Martin shooting.

    This is what Gingrich said: Gingrich shot back at the comments, saying they needlessly involved race in a politically divisive manner.

    “What the president said, in a sense, is disgraceful,” Gingrich told conservative talker Sean Hannity. “It’s not a question of who that young man looked like. Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified no matter what the ethnic background.”

    Gingrich added that the president should have emphasized in his remarks that the shooting in Florida united all Americans.

    “Is the president suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot, that would be OK because it didn’t look like him? That’s just nonsense dividing this country up,” Gingrich said.

    There are many simple solutions to our energy problems, for example get government out of it, but you will not find them by using self serving politicians. Obama has used every trick of the trade to destroy our country while congress sat on their hands and did nothing to stop him. There are very few in this government that are not in collusion with this president’s plan to socialize this country and destroy it’s constitution. It all boils down to power and more power to the few and not the people. November there’s going to be an election, the most important in this country’s history, and it would be in our best interests to elect good people rather then the lot we have in office today.

  • Patty

    And I would say that this administration is THE ONE PERCENTERS.

    And look what they have accomplished. A Sophomoric and they are running this nation like a production number that after the first night performance the credits give the 2 thumbs down. WAY DOWN.

    The naivety and using America as Guinea pigs. I have been so surprise how long it as taken for America To Wake the H UP.

  • a former dem

    I can’t stop laughing.

  • arnonerik

    I Trust Obama and his henchmen to continue to follow policies to destroy the American economy and our system of self government.
    The first year of this regime I gave them the benefit if the doubt that they were just stupid. After all, being Democrats, my expectations of their performance were not very high to start with.
    By the second year I realized that nobody is that stupid to make so many “blunders”. There is a design and a pattern to the policies of this regime. I began to understand what Obama meant when He said he wanted to make “fundamental changes”
    to our economic and Government system.
    Imagine the worst thing that an enemy of America would do if he somehow got elected President and you are not far off from what Obama and his Communist friends can be trusted to attempt.

    Obama Adviser David Plouffe: Who Are You Going to Trust on Energy Policy, Republicans or Barack Obama?


    Is that a question that any Democrat, any Democrat, really wants to ask?

    He’ll get his answer in November.

    And for Obamacare. I would love to see Plouffe and Obama and Pelsoi’s face when this law is repealed.

    Trust is a real odd word to use when this administration has Attack Watch, Investigates Fox News. Is taking this nation into a tail spin. And hopefully after Nov. we will get back on track.

    For the liberal the word Truth hurts. We can fight back with the truth and the Americans this time around will have to listen. HOPE HE IS OUT OF HIS 1.5 MILLION DOLLAR JOB.

    He is being paid for getting Obama elected, odd, that much money for what America have now. Not much in their pockets, 4.00 a gallon gas, no home, struggling for food and this little pinhead is saying we should trust them.>

    Just by reading his name “Plouffe”, the French speaking part of my brain translates into “actor” or “téléroman”.

    That must be an even bigger gaffe than the Etch-a-Scetch remark! Who other than someone directly benefitting from dealing with Obama or an imbecile would trust Obama on anything?

  • That question essentially frames this election. And those deluded enough to pose it gives a hint to who will lose it.

  • do they have to learn the ability to lie like this with a straight face or are they born with it?

  • stuart

    I trust Obama.
    Just as I trusted Bernie Madoff.
    Just as I trusted John Corzine.
    Just as I trust that Government health care will be a huge success.
    Just as I trust that my new Chevy Volt won’t catch fire.
    Just as I trust that the Iranians aren’t busy building a nuclear weapon.
    I could go on but I have been invited to hold the bag in a big snipe hunt my friends have organized. I’ll catch ya later.

    I would ask this man where Barack Hussein Obama’s true birth certificate is. He is an African impostor. He should not be running American’s energy policy. He is a con man who’s usurped the White House.

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    anyone but a democrat..

  • befuddled

    Obama and the Dems can’t get rid of our money fast enough. When it looks like they’ve reached the limit, Boehner bails them out. Come close to an election defeat will mean it’s time to send Michelle and her entourage on a couple more junkets around the world before the perks of the job dry up.

  • YourMaster

    being that Democrats never have the best interests of the nation itself at heart
    are anti-prosperity, anti-wealth, and anti-business, anti-oil

    it’s better to have republicans in charge. Democrats have to change their ideology before they should every be put in power. tax the rich will never work and neither does the marxist belief of spread the wealth.

  • UpChuck.Liberals

    Personally I wouldn’t trust Barry (or the DemonKRats) to do anything worthwhile. Of course I can say the same thing about the Republican Elites who really don’t care about the USA.
