Problem is the lord marshal b. h. obama's entire administration is from the same cut of cloth. One was thrown under the bus as cover for the rest of the anti-Americanism nitwits...it's an obamnanation.

Damn shame we can't get the nation's "top official" to resign for that twit just doing his bidding. Unfortunately, we'll just have to wait for the voters to retire Ă˜bama in November.

Would it have made any difference if he had said that he would 'hold their tails in the fire'?

His job was to go AFTER companies violating environmental laws; even after gas and oil companies who VIOLATE EPA Regulations.

Perhaps Obama's people would have preferred that he just give them a good 'tongue lashing' and leave them alone.

How CAN someone DO their job, when they don't have the support of their own government/political LEADERSHIP?

So you and the other Tea Baggers wish to reward companies violating environmental laws?

Your frankness is surprising. And off script.

Next thing you'll be acknowledging you're racists.

I thought Tea Baggers were for SMALL, RESPONSIBLE government.

Are you confusing Tea Baggers with the current LARGE, irresponsible government?(I think you are)

A GREAT country has great laws and the COURAGE TO ENFORCE those laws.

I can't identify one Tea Bagger on this page, much less identify anyone who said they would reward companies for violating enviromental laws. I did identify a socialist who skews any intelligent statment against the Socialist Obama Administration around to make it sound evil. I have reservations about socialist who resort to name calling right after they slam someone. If there were names involved here I bet your butt would be in court real quick. But since names aren't used, show us the beef, proof, for illiterate socialist like you.

No. The fool was a mouth foaming liberal greenie weenie drunk with asigned power from an Administration determined to cripple America's self-reliance for energy production. His real fault? He told the truth about one facet of the Administration's energy policy. Where it was recorded and wasn't plausible deniable. He HAD to go under the bus.

Hey dumb fck, you're engaging in name calling while whining about name calling.

Do you have a brain tumor or something? Do you not know what you're saying?

Hey moron, you don't know what socialism is. You like police, fire, libraries, a military, interstate roads, your government benefits...but you don't like socialism.

Hey Jedediah, let me help you: Socialism occurs along a spectrum, like democracy or capitalism do.

Answer the mucking question. Who is a Tea bagger, and who wants to reward companies for polution? Or, are you the dumb f... with a brain fart? And all the stuff you mentioned is bascially called for in the Constitution. But socialized Obama care ain't. Soak your big head in a toilet and get an education.

This guy should have been promoted. We atheist liberals are tired of staying in the closet (see our thread on topix). We're sick of the American way and Christianity. Crucify the capitalists and save the environment. To hell with economy! Socialist rule and a healthy environment are more important! Help obama finish the job!

Water vapor is a powerful greenhouse gas. Soon the EPA will regulate water vapor. Then we'll see real environmental change for the better.
