Not much they can do. Obama is using the EPA the same way he used the IRS. Why isn't he not being impeached?

Ok, everyone keeps saying impeach him, or wait til the next guy gets in there.
Werent most Americans saying the same thing when Bush was in the WH?
Then things got worse?
But he did nothing to change any of the Bush policies.
Just as the next guy wont do anything to change his.
They dont care.
They get paid, their family eats, has healthcare, goes to the best schools.
They dont care.
This includes everyone of them, the house, the senate, the wh.
We are alone out here.

Hussein Oblamer don't have to worry about losing his position of being Grand Mufti of the world nor his pension for being the communist muzlim president of the USSA. It is guaranteed a pension paid by the American people. Of course, the leeches and moochers who live off government won't have to pay a dime for its pension. Ain't life in the United Socialist States of America grand for a Kenyan!
You've come a long way Barry Hussein Soetero from the dregs of Mombassa, Jakarta and Chicago. The three top gutters of Barry's life. Now as the racist haters of white folk go off into the sunrise in 3 more years, chuckling we sure put it over on them white folks. They voted us into the white house along with those bros of course.
so long, suckers!

Last time I looked, NYC, Boston, Philly, Newark, DC, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago are all in blue states. People in South Carolina and South Dakota work for a living.
The third world countries of Flint and Detroit are in a blue state. The disaster called Philadelphia is in a blue state. Elizabeth, Passaic, Camden, yep you got it, blue state.
The communist capital of the west, San Francisco, blue state.
Hussein's hometown, Chicago, blue state all of its own!

Maybe the are thinking about "Our Country" and "Our World".

Read this:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2013/10/09...

And then think about what life in the USA might be like for your children and grand children 35 years from now if something is not down to slow down Global Warming caused by increased CO2 in the atmosphere - the biggest of which comes from burning coal.

Yes, these Green lunatics bankrupting one company after another have cost coal jobs in America, but they've also dedicated themselves to keeping 1.6 Billion people on Earth living in mud huts without electricity forever until they die. Good plan, Obama.

hard to fight the emperor when his campaign platform ran with 'you can built coal plants but I will bankrupt you if you do'. Not like oblunder wasn't telegraphing his intentions wayyyy back and now the coal industry cries "foul". Foul was when coal country voted overwhelmingly for the dope on a rope that told them his plan was to ruin their livelihood.
