Dems to Obama: Pick EPA chief with ‘Vision’

Several Senate committee chairmen and other Democrats are urging President Obama to appoint a new Environmental Protection Agency Administrator with “both a vision and demonstrated record of working to safeguard our children and families.”

Current EPA chief Lisa Jackson is stepping down soon, and the White House has not named a nominee to replace her after a tenure that generally won praise from environmentalists and many Democrats.

“The EPA nominee must … build on Administrator Lisa Jackson’s critical work to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink. We know that pollution can cause asthma attacks, heart and lung disease, cancer, damage to the reproductive system, strokes, and premature death,” states a new letter to Obama from 16 senators spearheaded by Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

The letter was also signed by Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)

  1. How the Obama stole christmas 😉

  2. John Detwiler says:

    Unfortunately that is what he did before. And unfortunately the one he chose was as screwed up as he is on global warming and the total control over how we live and use our property, regardless as to if it sensible or not. And you can bet that another appointee will share this view.

  3. i.e., select someone who will continue the destruction of America started by Jackson.

  4. Just DO NOT choose one who is so gullible as to fall for the phony "global anthropomorphic climate change" scam.

  5. VISION—yes yes yes. We have had enough of the blind leading the blind.

    Yes I know that the left doesn't really mean "vision," they mean delusion.

  6. Pick someone that is not a communist, but that is what he wants, to destroy the Amaerican economy !!!
    He can’t get it through congress, so just like all the other unconstitution acts , get it through the back door illegaly !!!

  7. Florida Jim says:

    Vision in a democrat's language means "global warming scam" if anyone studies climate change or whatever euphemism is used on any particular day you will find it is a giant scam to take money from Americans and give to "less fortunate countries[failed countries]Al Gore's book "An Inconvenient Truth" was a farce based on 35 proven lies. Read the English "scientists" who blew the while on the scam that "scientists were being paid to report lies receiving grants the press immediately r=tried to hide these facts. Please read Chris Horner's books"Red Hot Lies" et al for the truth.It is another redistribution scam to bankrupt American companies with taxes and costs while Russia, China, Canada, Norway and 100 other countries use their oil and gas to be come wealthy and we listen to dolts like Gore, Sibelius and Salazar .

  8. Bob Higginbotham says:

    Don't worry, Obama will appoint another insane nut job with no common sense and lack of what is in the best interest of the American people as a whole. Like Jackson, the next EPA director will favor special interest groups as long as they contribute to Obama and the dems and dump ion the rest of us.
