MSNBC’s Chuck Todd: “Very quickly, president’s going down to Miami to give an energy speech. Nia, you’ve been with me, I feel like, on the front lines covering the president from the day he took office. There is no issue that has been a, I guess, a bigger bust for the president than energy policy in general. There’s a lot of, we can come up with a lot of excuses as to why, but boy, it’s just like you can’t – he’s made no progress.”

The Washington Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson: “No, he’s made no progress. I remember covering him on the campaign and he would talk about, you know, turning these manufacturing plants into wind turbine plants and it seemed to work then, but, you know, in terms of the reality and on the ground actually success during his presidency, absolutely none.”

Todd: “Could we expect Republicans, if the economy itself is recovering, to shift when they talk about the economy and try to go at the president, that energy is where they’ll go, ‘cause, well, number one, they’ll want to bring up Solyndra, but number two in general, there’s no national energy policy and it’s something every candidate for president promised to no end.”

National Review Online’s Robert Costa: “No, for what it’s worth, I think you’re right, Republican strategists see energy as a great issue. Because you have Solyndra, a big Obama scandal in a sense but you also have the Keystone pipeline, Republicans see a lot of political opportunity there, talking that up.” (MSNBC’s  "The Daily Rundown,"  2/23/12)
