Hmmm, the EPA is slowing down…


This is just too good.  Remember how the oceans were going to stop rising when Barack Obama took office?  Yeah.  Well, maybe not so much.  Looks like that one is going the way of Gitmo and the Afghan pull-out.  And DADT.  And those “Bush Tax Cuts” that are doing so much damage to whatever.  The New York Times had this little love note for me today…

The move to delay the rules, announced this week by the Environmental Protection Agency, will leave in place policies set by President George W. Bush. President Obama ran for office promising tougher standards, and the new rules were set to take effect over the next several weeks.

Now, the agency says, it needs until July 2011 to further analyze scientific and health studies of the smog rules and until April 2012 on the boiler regulation. Mr. Obama, having just cut a painful deal with Republicans intended to stimulate the economy, can ill afford to be seen as simultaneously throttling the fragile recovery by imposing a sheaf of expensive new environmental regulations that critics say will cost jobs.

What’s this? Obama cuts a painful deal with Republicans? And the CAUSE of said pain? Stimulating the economy. As in policies that will allow the economy to grow and people to find jobs. Sooooo, if you’re unemployed, take note: You finding a real (as opposed to a government) job is cause for pain for this President.

Oh, and those environmental regulations that we were told were necessary “for the children”, well, those can just wait because they’re not good for the economy. Keep that in mind the next time an “environmentalist” spouts some global warming, seas rising BS to you.

And then there’s the part about not bothering with the pesky new Congress on those regulation thingys. As you will recall, the President is being encouraged to bypass the Republicans and simply rule by fiat through federal regulation. Looks like that might not fly either.

Environmental advocates are furious. They fear a similar delay on the approaching start of one of the most far-reaching regulatory programs in American environmental history, the effort to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

Heh. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of Marxists. And the new head of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Fred Upton, while not particularly exciting to conservatives had this to say to the EPA…

Still, the threats are looming. Representative Fred Upton, the Michigan Republican who is in line to become the new chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has made limiting E.P.A. authority one of his main objectives and has promised a steady round of hearings questioning the basis of agency actions.

Mr. Upton suggested recently that Ms. Jackson should be given her own parking place on Capitol Hill because she would be testifying so frequently in the coming year.

In a statement on Wednesday, Mr. Upton called for the environmental agency to “stand down altogether” from the rules, which he said would “send a devastating economic shockwave coast to coast.”

So maybe Barack will have to wait a tad to live out their dream…
