Obama Throws EPA Moron Under Bus, Bashes Republicans, Panders to Unions

Posted on | April 30, 2012 | 11 Comments

Oh, the wheels on the bus go round and round! Guess what? Obama’s big corporate donors don’t like being “crucified” by the EPA:

E.P.A. Official Resigns Over ‘Crucify’ Comments

Environmentalists are too stupid to understand that Democrats, despite all their “green” rhetoric, are perfectly willing peddle their asses to Corporate America. But of course, environmentalists are only slightly less stupid than union members:

During his 2008 campaign for president, Mr. Obama relied heavily on unions for millions of dollars of support, as well as labor’s national get-out-the-vote grassroots network. Mr. Obama has sometimes been at odds with labor during his three years in office but will need all the support he can get from unions ahead of the November election.
In recent weeks and months, Mr. Obama’s been working to mend fences. In February, Mr. Obama delivered a blistering attack on Mitt Romney when he spoke before United Auto Workers, highlighting his GOP rival’s opposition to the auto industry bailout. . . .
“Republicans in Congress would rather put fewer of you to work rebuilding America than ask millionaires and billionaires to live without massive new tax cuts,” he said. . . .
“If we’re smart about it, we can also afford to make the investments that will help our country and the American people in the short-term,” he said. “I think that’s a no-brainer. But apparently, Republicans disagree.”

It does no good to tell union members that they’re being lied to, ripped off, backstabbed and sold out by the Democrats. No, the stupid rank-and-file membership will swallow this dishonest rhetoric — “Republicans want to give tax cuts to billionaires!” — and vote for Democrats, and will never notice that their dues are being squandered to help corrupt Democrats and union leaders get rich.

    I’m glad this guy is gone. He’s been trying to force PNM, the electricity provider for New Mexico, to install $250 million worth of haze reduction equipment on the San Juan coal-fired plant here. PNM figured out a way to do it for $80 million with the same results and the EPA won’t allow it. Our governor, Susana Martinez, couldn’t even get this guy on the phone to resolve it according to the local paper.

    I guess it was PNM’s turn to be crucified. $250 million in a state with only 2 million people. Guess who has to pick up the tab?

    I must say that I’m shocked (Shocked I say!) that you would think that the Kenyan and his minions would lie to, cheat and steal from, the Union Rank and File. He just wants to take good care of those he cares so much about.

    Of course, the main one he wants to take care of is himself. For that, he’d walk on his Mother’s and Grandmother’s grave.

     The problem is, him being gone isn’t going to change anything. He was just the face of Obama’s official policy at the time. But that face turned into an embarrassment so he’s being replaced with another face that will just conduct the same policies.

    It’s the union leaders who are easily led astray. The workers are much less likely to be leftist ideologues.

    They keep kicking the dog that doesn’t bite. However even among the rank and file union members Obamsky’s support is slipping.

    EXCEPT this time the light is shining on the cockroaches. They can run but they can’t hide anymore.

    He was in no way qualified for his position, being only an academic, and he wasn’t misspeaking – it was an unguarded moment among colleagues, we’re just lucky the recording came from or into the hands of someone as shocked as the public.  But he was stating their policy very precisely.

    Senator Imhofe  noted as much in his own statement on the resignation.  Talk about tip of the iceberg!  In this Administration, Armendariz represents a single snowflake on the top of the tip of the iceberg of anti-business and anti-fossil fuels bureaucrats and regulators.

    This is piece is missing one key thing. The United Miner Workers of America are mad at the Obama’s administration EPA because it’s costing them jobs in the Virginias. So it be an interested November that’s for sure. ANYWAY….vote for Ron Paul.

    I’m glad you remain so positive. Me? I’m with Pagan on this one.

    This is exactly why we can’t let this latest Leftist sacrifice mollify us.
