  •  Obama sucks on the environment (0+ / 0-)

    He just doesn't give a shit about it, so he's more interested in nominating someone who looks the part (REI CEO!) than actually has the bona fides.

      also slammed the President for making a horrible choice in selecting John Kerry as SOS and immediately congratulated ''Senator-elect Brown'' in Mass,right?

      You seem to have a hair trigger criticism mechanism for this President.

      This just in.....Brown is not running for the Kerry Senate seat.
      And this nominee for Interior is drawing praise from evironmental groups.

        better than Salazar but I really wonder sometimes why it's always CEOs and business people that get picked for these positions.

        I just wish they would pick people who are experts in their fields, who use that horrible thing called science to make decisions.

        I hope if she wins she reverses a lot of Salazar's actions.

        I guess I am just tired of seeing  "Former CEO of X company picked for X position."

        I am just tired of so many business people in government I guess.
