Obama administration’s energy policy chief on Tuesday gives himself an "A" grade

Can't the Obama administration give this guy some media advice? Wouldn't one think that this would be embarrassing statement? From Fox News:

The Obama administration’s energy policy chief on Tuesday gave himself an A for controlling gas prices that have reached a record high at pumps across the country, drawing criticism and even chortles from Washington Republicans.
Energy Secretary Steven Chu made the comment during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing in which he was asked whether he was still doing A-minus work.
“Well, the tools we have at our disposal are limited, but I would say I would give myself a little higher,” he told committee Chairman Darrell Issa. “Since I became secretary of energy, I've been doing everything I can to get long-term solutions."
Issa, a California Republican, said later that the administration’s “DOE is DOA.”
The average price of regular gas is now $3.87 a gallon, a record high for March and more than double the $1.85 a gallon price when Obama took office in January 2009, according to the federal Energy Information Administration. . . .

Chu practices the Administration's obfuscation technique of answering questions with out of context, technically true responses. When he says, "I've been doing everything I can to get long-term solutions", he is can only be referring to all the alternative energy projects the DOE has been pushing. More alternative energy means less need for fossil fuels means in the alternate reality of Obama-land the price of gas will get better. Of course, Chu and crew actually want gas prices to get worse for the consumer.
