“A New Obama Energy Policy?”

By: Glenn McCullough, Jr.

President Obama’s much touted recent shift to the political center does not appear to apply to his energy policy. However, by reconsidering his position and action, the President can lead America to a more secure, clean, affordable energy supply. Simply put: President Obama still has time to do an energy policy course correction that will put the nation on the right path to energy security, a cleaner environment and growing economy.  

An Opportunity for Sensible Energy Policies

By: Glenn McCullough, Jr.

If there is one area where President Barack Obama and the new Congress should be able to readily and substantively find common ground in 2011, it is energy policy.

As a lifelong Republican appointed by President Bill Clinton to the board of the Tennessee Valley Authority and then by President George W. Bush to chair it, I commend Obama for his post-election press conference comments on energy.

The president said: “I don’t think there’s anybody in America who thinks that we’ve got an energy policy that works the way it needs to; that thinks that we shouldn’t be working on energy independence.” He’s right.
