In a speech to the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce today, [Haley Barbour] accused President Obama of purposely trying to drive up the price of oil, saying that “the Obama energy policy basically boils down to this: increase the price of energy so Americans will use less of it. That’s an environmental policy, not an energy policy.”
Yep. Haley Barbour said that. The country-fried yokel (and proud lobbyist) who, while head of the Republican Governor’s Association, took $5 million from Big Oil.
