Dumocrats Hate Domestic Autos and Americans

A couple days ago the EPA denyed California's (and 17 other states) the right to set it's own CAFE requirements, a huge win for the Automotive Industry.

California swore to sue the government to overturn the rule.

Johnson's long-awaited announcement provoked applause from the auto industry, but an outcry of protest from environmentalists, congressional Democrats and officials in California and other affected states. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger immediately announced plans to fight EPA's decision.

Well it seems the dumocrats feel that there was a conspiracy between the EPA and domestic auto makers.

California and other states that were seeking the waiver to impose standards stricter than the federal mandates vowed to sue the EPA. Their protests were supported by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee, who sent a two-page letter to EPA administrator Johnson demanding "all communications within the agency and all communications between the agency and persons outside the agency, including persons in the White House, related to the California waiver request."

The dumocrats are going to hold meetings about why the EPA sided with the auto makers instead of California.

The letter signed by the committee's chairwoman, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., also sought records of all contacts with the vice president's office and White House by Jan. 7, including e-mails. Boxer said the formal two-page denial by EPA "is unsupported by legal or technical analysis" and the decision "appears to be contrary to the Clean Air Act and the science."

California and the Environuts will have their way, they will force people to bend to their will, and force people to live their lives how the environuts want people to live their lives.

I think the environuts will be extinct as a political force within a year or two. The key is that ethanol mess. As food prices continue to skyrocket and the water disappears because of the enormous water and power that it takes to create ethanol, the American People will rise up.

Look for me in the crowd, I'll be the one shooting black powder .45 rounds in a huge cloud of white smoke, hollering "Yee-Haw!".

Until that happy day I wish you a Merry Christmas.
