Obamas Birth Certificate As A Distractor?

There is a new site called Trending Right that could only be improved if it mentioned The Other McCain. Despite this minor omission, it points to items like this IBD Editorial about the EPA flexing its PEA brain.

President Obama’s long-form birth certificate wasn’t the only thing released last Wednesday, but it was probably the least important. The Environmental Protection Agency also released its guidelines for expanding federal power over the nation’s waterways, ponds and puddles.

These guidelines will take effect after a 60-day comment period and will serve as a reference for environmental agencies in determining their jurisdiction over a particular body of water, large or small. They will eventually morph into binding regulations as damaging to our economy and freedom as the EPA regulation of carbon dioxide emissions.

Given the amount of time and effort any bureaucracy takes to squeeze out new policy, I highly doubt that there was even awareness in the White House of the specifics of the EPA’s move, much less coordination to provide media coverage via the LFBC.
But, if you want to read a lengthy statement generally responding to this sort of EPA over-reach, check out the Mind Numbed Robot. Somehow I doubt the EPA fits his definition of American.
I like the ‘Bot’s rousing call to action, but hope that we understand that altering the Progressive course of the last century is going to be surgery with no anesthesia. I personally estimate that things will get an order of magnitude worse. That way, I’m either correct, or pleasantly surprised.
To paraphrase Jones, things have not yet begun to suck.
