Obama Uses Clean-Energy Pitch as Political Protection

“The truth is, the only real solution to helping families at the pump in the medium and long term is clean energy,” he said on Tuesday in Virginia.

The president said that whenever the gas price reaches $4, “just like clockwork, you see politicians going in front of the cameras, and they say they have a three-point plan for two-buck-a-gallon gas.”

But he insisted that his plan is different.
