Plouffe: GOP Trying To ‘Vilify,’ ‘Mock’ Clean Energy

Grilled by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, White House senior adviser David Plouffe reaffirmed President Obama’s commitment to domestic oil production, but accused Republicans of dismissing clean energy sources, which he said must be part of the solution.

“This used to be a very bipartisan idea, alternative energy,” Plouffe said. “Sadly, the Republicans running for president — many Republicans here in Washington — kind of vilify this. Almost mock it. And it’s only going to determine our future. It’s a very dangerous thing.”
