Sure, the EPA may be annexing Alaska
…but what the agency hasn’t accounted for is the looming presence of a possible Mitt Romney presidency. Because if ever there was a man singly prepared to beat back the excesses of bureaucratic overreach and correct the leftward listing of a moribund constitutional republic, it’s a severely conservative one-term former Massachusetts governor and Reagan denier like Mitt.
— His dalliance with cap-and-trade, his imposition of a top-down state-run health care system, his deference to administrative-state edicts over First Amendment protections for Catholics, and his favoring of federal minimum wage laws tied to inflation notwithstanding, of course.
Moreover, a Romney victory would almost certainly embolden John Boehner to double down on the Hobbity, anti-big government conservative rhetoric — before ultimately (and prudently; we have to pick our battles!) caving to the Democrat minority in a slushy muddle of orange-tinged tears.
So. Take that, EPA!
