If you want to see Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) get riled up these days, ask him about President Obama’s energy policy.
The Speaker has been hammering the president over energy for months, first over his delay of the Keystone pipeline and more recently as gas prices have risen.
When Obama toured the country last week touting an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy, Boehner openly mocked him. At a press conference meant to bracket Obama’s appearance in Cushing, Okla., the Speaker on Thursday rolled out a new slogan, the “Obama energy gap.”
“There’s a big gap between what the president promises and what he talks about and the actions that he’s taking,” Boehner said. “And I think honest, hard-working taxpayers deserve actions that match the words.”
