    They haven't taken him off the committee yet.

    And he has stopped Clear Skies, Arctic Drilling, and the Endangered Species Act (with full Dem support.) None of that has been undone.

    Hes not the best, but hes better to have while Republicans control the committees.

    •  Arctic drilling may be put into a bill this week (0+ / 0-)

      without the committee being able to stop it.  They only have to win that bill once.  When they need to win it, they can get rid of him easily.  He's tissue-paper armor.

      My apologies to students who took my U.S. Government class in the 90s: evidently the Constitution doesn't limit Presidential power after all. Who knew?
