Haley Barbour vs. Barack Obama

by Greg Pollowitz

Haley Barbour is under fire for saying that President Obama wants oil prices to go up to further his “green” agenda, but why is that any different than what then candidate Obama said in 2008 when he declared that energy costs would “necessarily skyrocket” under his plan? Yes, there’s a difference between costs that skyrocket due to a cap-and-trade system and costs that skyrocket due to supply-and-demand, but the effect on consumer behavior is the same. Video of Sen. Obama here:
