Tom Borelli: Obama “Clueless” on Energy Policy

Desperately clinging to a green energy agenda “driven by his crony capitalist advisors,” President Obama is “clueless” about the fact that his energy policy is “brutalizing our economy.” Tom notes that Obama’s war on fossil fuels — coal, in this discussion — has “unleashed the EPA as a job-killing machine” that is also limiting the supply of electricity at a time when increasing demand may cause future brownouts and blackouts for the nation’s consumers. This discussion with host Chris Cotter, part of the Fox Business Network’s “Regulation Nation” series, was broadcast on the 9/13/11 edition of “Fox Business.”
