Another one bites the dust: Steven Chu will resign as Energy Secretary; Updated

Annnnd another light in the Obama Administration is going dim. Energy Secretary Steven Chu is the latest member of Obama’s cabinet to announce that he’s stepping down — as soon as a successor is chosen.

What a bummer.

Yeah, he’ll be missed.

Until the next guy comes along, anyway.

Sigh.

Update:

Make sure you have a hanky handy.

    Obama will replace him with someone else who worships at the alter of Al Gore’s Global Warming Scam….

    Chu, who does not own an automobile (he gets around in a taxpayer-funded chauffeured limo), established the mileage standards for O. By 2025 average MPG for autos and light trucks is to be 54.5. Got that? Expect paper bodies and pedal assist to be standard equipment for your two-person battery box.
    Interestingly, I do not believe that there is a standard for total energy consumption.

    Chu served his purpose as a fall guy for Obama’s “Green Dream”…
    and like Salazar, under the bus Chu must go.

    Obama credited Chu with designing cap for the 2010 gulf oil spill. Pure fantasy BS.
