Breathtaking

22 September 2009

The American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act.  The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is.”

Dr. Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy, 9/21/09

Secretary Chu was not comparing the public to teenagers. He was saying that we need to educate teenagers about ways to save energy.”

Dan Leistikow, Energy Department spokesperson, 9/21/09

(As reported by the Wall Street Journal, 9/22/09)

I mean no disrespect, Dan, but…wow, that is breathtaking.  Assuming that Dr. Chu was quoted accurately, how can anyone come up with such an interpretation?  Good grief, you must think we are the most gullible idiots ever to walk the face of the planet.
