Hillary Clinton Slams President and EPA over Greenhouse Gas Emissions

"If President Bush refuses to lead, it is time for him to get out of the way." - Senator Hillary Clinton

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - "It is an outrage that the Bush Administration chose to block the efforts of California, Oregon, and many other states that want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles," Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton stated Thursday that she's upset about the motivations of the Bush Administration in changing the direction of emission standards that would make cars more efficient and the air cleaner.

She went so far as to accuse the federal government of operating in a criminal manner.

"The Environmental Protection Agency's decision to flatly reject the Clean Air Act waiver sought by these states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions was wrong on legal and policy grounds."

Thursday Clinton joined with Senator Boxer in introducing legislation that will overturn what they call, "the EPA's wrongheaded decision and allow states to move forward on global warming."

Clinton added, "If President Bush refuses to lead, it is time for him to get out of the way."

Clinton says that if elected, she will act to support states that want to take fast action to address the pressing problem of global warming by approving California's waiver request.

"I'll end the Bush Administration's War on Science, and restore evidence-based decision-making to Washington."

"I applaud Chairman Boxer for holding a hearing today to examine the Bush Administration's continuing efforts to stop action to address the growing crisis of global warming. Chairman Boxer's continued oversight on this issue is critically important, and I look forward to working with her on this issue in the weeks and months ahead."

Thats absolutely right, Albert. The whole "we get to choose between two opposing parties" sham is just that...a sham devised to keep us thinking we have some kind of say in things.

Albert you are right on about Clinton. Then the other demo candidate has what, a few years as a state legislator and a few years as a U.S. senator. These are perilous times, America needs experienced leaders. They both are very far left ideologues, which is fine for the current democratic party voters that are on the far left. But America is a nation of conservative values and their brand of "socialistic policies" that they are pushing, will simply not get traction during the general election. Which ever one of these individuals get the nomination the liberal fascists will be labeling the "future" Republican Presidential-elect either a sexist or racist...the American voter will not buy it, and along with the wonderful video/sound bites these incredibly inexperienced candidates are currently providing for the general election, the Reagan democrats, the scoop-Jackson democrats, etc. , will be coming out in force not so much to vote for the republican, but to provide the final blow to the liberal fascists. I firmly believe that when the democratic party rebuilds over say the next 50 years or so, they will become a party to be reckoned with, at least on state marginal levels. This election will be a good time to cleanse America of those who have been trying to injure us with their "socialistic policies." Eventually they will not even be a footnote in history, like other liberal fascists that I have been observing of late...

I have seen the footage of her going into a Bilderberg meeting. On U-Tube she is asked about this and lies so comfortably. Check it out on U-Tube. She is just another puppet. I used to think she was different but she is just another politician.

Jefferson - delusion is such a sad disorder. Ah well...


Jefferson January 26, 2008 11:21 am (Pacific time)

I am just gonna love the political commercials that are coming...at least 46 states will go to the republican candidate, probably Mitt...

Well one can try to go along to get along. I've rarely seen much benefit from that. It usually only benefits those you are going along with and winds up with you looking like a hypocrite. That is why politics generally sucks. Because those with good ideas have to 'compromise' with those with bad ideas so you almost never get any good ideas, just half-bad ideas (or worse). Ah well...


Henry Ruark January 25, 2008 12:39 pm (Pacific time)

Glen et al: Every "arranged affair" comes to a dead-end, sooner or later. This one is most assuredly at that dead-end, at least on the Bush-side. Sure makes it easy to see with what contempt Bush et al really view the Constitutional role of the states, though...


Glen January 25, 2008 10:22 am (Pacific time)

So why did Boss Lady play nice-nice with Bush for so long?
