Obama’s November surprise [Darleen Click]

Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Obama’s big eff you if he’s ousted won’t be limited to prying off the “Rs” on the White House keyboards

President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an unprecedented number of bureaucrats to finalizing new anti-coal regulations that are set to be released at the end of November, according to a source inside the EPA.

More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.

The rush is a major sign of panic by environmentalists inside the Obama administration. If Obama wins, the EPA would have another four full years to implement their anti-fossil fuel agenda. But if Romney wins, regulators will have a very narrow window to enact a select few costly regulations that would then be very hard for a President Romney to undo.

  1. The notion that they would be hard to undo is laughable. Obama set a new precedent for executive orders.

  2. Beat me to it.

  3. can executive order delete the epa created by an executive order?

  4. I don’t know, newrouter, but I would like to find out.

  5. oh good ratified by committees. lawless epa. these clowns need constitutional gov’t 101

    The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order. The order establishing the EPA was ratified by committee hearings in the House and Senate.[3]

  6. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.

    The rush is a major sign of panic by environmentalists inside the Obama administration.

    It’s also a major sign of anti-Americanism.

  7. how can congress ratify an executive order?

  8. If it was created by executive order, it can be abolished recreated the same way.

  9. ” recreated the same way.”

    true but all the congress ornaments won’t be present because the agency was unconstitutional

  10. - Difficult? About as difficult as signing one piece of paper.

    – If they want to keep the EPA, just reset it under Congressional control, just like the NASA. All funding and policies must be passed by a Congressional bill and vote. At least that keeps it from getting away with rogue unconstitutional/partisan actions without debate or vote.

  11. Congress always has the authority to review and stop anything agencies like the EPA do, they just lack the political will to do so.

  12. - Thats why you make it the law. No nore non-debate/vote rogue agencies, period.

  13. all mittens/congress need to do is scrap most of epa(keep enviro monitoring and put it in noaa) and send it back to the states. epa done did their original mission long time ago.

  14. so i think after 11/6/12 epa should be front and center about our economic condition

  15. Hopefully Romney will defund and fire the fuck out of the EPA (say 60% of work force) as a cost saving measure and then tell his new head of the EPA ” Yo, man. Fix this shit. Yeah. De-reg. Golf at 10? Okay then! be there! Love ya babe.”

    Hopefully I’ll find some gold bars in my couch cushions and pizza Hit will lower the price of a large one topping thin and crispy to $7. And maybe Blue Osyter Cult will come out with a new CD while I’m dreaming.

  16. the epa can’t rape your job if you’re already unemployed

    so in this sense the epa is a self-limiting reaction

    so that’s the bright side plus you get food stamps

  17. I want to get my EC prediction in early, because i’ll be busy later…
    R 279
    0 259
    That’s with OH to Romney and WI to Zero. I hope Wisconsin surprises.

    I’m still convinced there’s segments of CA and NY that need be razor-wired off from the rest of us, for our own well-being.

  18. The notion that they would be hard to undo is laughable. Obama set a new precedent for executive orders.

    Perhaps the statement takes into account who would be doing the undoing.
