    Obama meets secretly with energy CEO's (Remember when Cheney did it)

    I didnt think it was a bad thing then or now. In fact it is smart to get information from experts.

    but,

    The White House did not respond to queries from POLITICO about why the public and press were excluded from the discussion, which took place at the Energy Department.

    During Obama's first bid for the White House, the freshman senator complained about then-Vice President Dick Cheney's private meetings with energy industry representatives.

    "The oil companies were allowed to craft energy policy with Dick Cheney in secret while every other voice was silenced ­ including the NASA scientists who tried to warn us about the dangers of climate change," Obama said in a June 2007 campaign speech. "When there are meetings between lobbyists and a government agency, we won't be going to the Supreme Court to keep it secret like Dick Cheney and his energy task force, we'll be putting it up on the Internet for every American to watch."

    I just wanted to point out as I said then about Cheney's closed meeting the only potential problem was that it was  CLOSED meeting. It's smart to meet with experts.

    Some made it out that Cheney and the experts were behond closed doors plotting how to get rich on the backs of the poor.

    In reality there was/is no difference other than Obama pledged that he would not do it.

    I've met a few of these folks myself.  

    Networking, y'know....

     

    One of the largest expansions of the domestic economy in the next few decades will be in the energy sector - namely generation, supply and delivery.  These people know it, and so does the Prez.

    In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:

    Heck of a 'secret' meeting when a news source not only publishes it's time and place but gives a list of every company/CEO who attended.

    Let me know when you find the list of Chenney's attendees.



    Psst...the "secret" part was in reference to the press not being included in the meeting.

     

    President Barack Obama met behind closed doors with energy executives Wednesday in a session the White House said was arranged to discuss the industry's response to Hurricane Sandy last year and preparations for this year's hurricane season.

    The White House did not respond to queries from POLITICO about why the public and press were excluded from the discussion, which took place at the Energy Department.

    During Obama's first bid for the White House, the freshman senator complained about then-Vice President Dick Cheney's private meetings with energy industry representatives.

    Not sure about you guys but I wasn't informed about this meeting being on the internet to watch? Anyone else see it???

    Because he focused almost exclusively on fossil fuel technology.

    Narrow-minded, to say the least.  Like promoting desktop PCs as the future of computing.

    He also emphasized corporate profit over the public trust and environmental safety.  Sorry, not in this century....

    Dodge, deflect, and dissemble.

    Cheney helped purposely set back standards for the sake of profits, not innovation.  Sounds like soviet-style corruption and patronage, to me.

    Cheney is none of these things. Cheney is a human being who appears to resemble a douch(e)bag of sufficient size and PSI to clean a succubi's foul taint.

     



    Cheney has all those things and that is where the bigotry lies but, you knew that.
