Obama Holds American Economy Hostage Over Cap & Trade,

In the midst of Climategate, Obama's EPA opted to dismiss out of hand all the core issues raised by this scandal. Then on Monday, the EPA issued a final finding that carbon dioxide is a pollutant subject to regulation under the Clean Air Act. The finding itself was largely based on the IPCC's "peer reviewed" conclusions. Yesterday, there was this report from Fox:

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn't move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a "command-and-control" role over the process in way that could hurt business.

Obama is going to proactively destroy our economy if Congress doesn't pass cap and trade? To say this is outrageous is the height of understatement. Cap and trade is a bill which would just as quickly kill our economy as anything that the EPA would do, perhaps moreso. Regardless, yet again, the Obama administration is attempting to distort what was, for over two centuries, a process of deliberative democracy. They are doing so to advance a massive socialist agenda hiding under a patina of highly politicized and unproven "science" that has, on its own, no chance of passage out of the Senate. There is but one appropriate response to both the EPA and the Obama Administration for such base acts:

Part of the goal, here, also, is to take the onus of screwing up the economy off the Obama admin and spreading it out, as though a f***ed up economy isn't going to toss out the entire lot when the elections roll around.
