letters | GAS PRICES ON THE RISE

Partisan attack on Obama disguised as voice of reason

JOHN E. Sununu tries to fashion himself as a beacon of sanity when talking about the “crazy talk’’ over gas prices ( “Dripping demagoguery at the pump,’’ Op-ed, March 5). I think instead he’s a beacon of cynicism, ignorance, and partisan politics.

He lambastes President Obama for talking about research into gasoline and diesel fuel coming from algae, apparently ignorant that this has already been demonstrated on a small scale; he dismisses the prudence shown by the president and his administration after the worst oil spill in American history in the Gulf; he makes no mention that the route of the first proposed pipeline from Canada would have threatened to pollute a vast aquifer that is a source of drinking water for millions of people, should a spill occur.
