Secretary Chu is he most evasive and deceptive individual I have ever witnessed. He is making a mockery of the Noble Prize in Physics.

Dude what are you talking about? Chu tore those losers up. He was just laughing at the idiots in Congress. Just think what is going through his mind having to be talked to by the mental lightweights in Congress. It reminds of the time that Inhofe was arguing with Chu about how the world was flat or something and the idiot actually put it on his homepage for constitutes. America must have been a very different place in 17787 or the founders would have never allowed the average person to vote.

Chu chewed up? As I read it it was the usual bunch of congressional ignoramuses trying to score political points. They never laid a glove on him.

I guess harping on Solyndra, which is a 1/2 billion dollar loss, is a way of avoiding the discussion of the 3,000 billion dollars the previous administration's unnecessary war in Iraq will cost us. If you've read the IEEE Spectrum articles on reconstruction in Afghanistan and Iraq, you will see that Solyndra is small beer indeed.

Bush's fault. Wow, don't you even feel the slightest sense of embarrassment about being such an obvious liberal cliche? What change are you hoping for now, brainless one?

Dr. Chu is on record saying he thinks that high gas prices like the $8 per gallon paid in Europe is a good thing and America should strive for that price.

That's hard to defend and a stupid attitude considering the hard working, fast declining middle class in this country. They simply can't afford it.

However, $4 per gallon gas is something that Americans will just have to get use to. Oil man T. Boone Pickens recently said that you'll likely never see $2.50 gas again here in the United States. You don't have to be a genius to understand that buying at least a 40 MPG compact vehicle as your next car is the only logical choice.

The founders did not allow the average person to vote. You had to own property, be a man, and be of European ancestry. I'm not saying I think that was wise or just. But it is worth understanding that they were human beings shaped by their particular circumstances.

Hmm, they seal you in the time capsule sometime before Richard Nixon?

Chu gave himself an A- for his performance to date! He said it should be higher. He just sat on the pot, stood up and is witnessing the Labs spinning in the toilet and claims this is an A- performance? I guess it would be an A if we went straight down, i.e., non-floater.

Uh...Iraq was Bush's fault. How can a fact be a cliche?

Dr. Chu doesn't care one iota about the nuclear weapon labs under his domain. He's perfectly willing to let them rot away with neglect.

During his brief visit to Los Alamos a few years ago, it was readily apparent to those around him that he couldn't wait to fly out of the place. He spend all of around 2 hours at LANL.

His true love, when it comes to national labs, is the one in which he served as their Director, Livermore Berkeley Lab (LBL). They've seen a huge increase in their funding for non-defense related science projects since Dr. Chu took the helm at DOE.

Only if your "logic" includes not having enough money to cope with higher gas prices. You choose your education, which determines your career, your salary potential, and your life earnings. You choose your lifestyle, which includes family, kids, housing type, material goods, and savings versus spending. As a result, you either find yourself easily able to adapt to economic setbacks and stresses, such as high gas prices, or not. No one's doing or fault but your own. Live with it. Or not.

That would be Lawrence Berkeley Lab.

What a jerk, what makes you so special? The people at the labs are no better or worse than anyone else. Now they have to live like the rest of America. Welcome to the real world.

Very egalitarian of you. Meaningless soft-headed pablum. Who said anything about "the labs"? Your parochialism is showing.

The White House just announced a new $200 million agenda for "Big Data" -- computer science research for handling massive unstructured data. It was interesting to see that the DOE will only play a small part in this new announcement.

Of course, the primary benefactor at DOE for this new push will be Dr. Chu's old lab, LBL. They'll run the institue that will oversee the project for DOE. No surprise here, right?

Chu will be lucky to survive until June if the anti-Obama super-PAC keeps running those high gas price commercials quoting Chu as wanting $9/gallon gas, and not even owning a car. I'll bet Obama's re-election committee is right now trying to figure a way to get rid of him!
