Skip to comments.Waxman to challenge Dingell (House Oversight Battle)
Posted on 11/05/2008 11:47:38 AM PST by Kieri
This puts the Californian in a direct conflict with Energy and Commerce Chairman John Dingell (Mich.), the dean of the House and a long-time Waxman rival, for the top spot of one of the most powerful committees in Congress.
Did Michigan go red yesterday? I haven’t seen results for that state.
I suppose Dingell believes that coal has a part in providing energy in the future, certainly Waxman does not.
Remind me again...what’s the difference?
Michigan is blue, more so over the past few years since so many workers and professionals have fled the state.
Dingell’s district includes Ford. It IS Ford. Dingell has been an advocate for the automotive industry, who butters his bread. Waxman would pile more emissions standards on the not-so-Big Three and sucks up to the environmentalist wackos.
Thanks for the information, I appreciate such nuggets.
Dingell does not think destroying the auto industry in the US is a good idea, Waxman does. It’s all about the money the Democrats can get from the AGW hoax. Dingell does not believe in the hoax, says it’s not true.
A perfect example of overreach — You go guys, duke it out kill those union jobs off. At least the ones that will be left after this weeks layoffs.
Sadly, the only loser in this battle will be the American people.
And it start today.
the hogs are really gonna be feeding...

> Dingell does not believe in the hoax, says it’s not true.
His approach has changed. But regardless, Obama will have to build new alliances, and his embrace of the entire phony global warming agenda signals how it will fall. And oh looky, no one can say he’ll stick with only people of color. Y’know, ‘cause Waxman has none.
