California Kisses Obama's Ass

California and 17 other states have been pushing to be able to set their own emission standards, which would also set CAFE requirements for automotive manufacturers.

Bush generally agreed with the automotive manufacturers that it would be a fucking mess to let states set their own standards and everyone should just abide by what the EPA sets.

California sued the government to let them set their own standards but now that Obama agreed to a review of the standards but has come out and basically agreed with Bush, California is now backing down

California's top air regulator said Thursday her state could agree to the nationwide carbon-emissions standards that the auto industry seeks.

The Bush administration denied the request a year ago, but within days of taking office, President Barack Obama ordered a review of that decision. The administration has sent strong signals in recent days that it plans to set nationwide greenhouse gas limits.

So when Bush said it states went crazy, but now that Obama is saying the same exact thing states are awed by his brillant?

Fucking Cock Suckers

California is not backing down, they just know they can "massage" the Obama administration to set national standards at their levels.

It's amazing what you can convince the spineless to do.
