. . . . . If personnel equal policy we have a hint from Mitt Romneys appointments while governor of Massachusetts what his administration will look like. Van Jones may not be recalled but it may not make much difference.
In 2003, Romney chose a hard core environmental activist to be Secretary of Commonwealth Development. In this position he was charged with developing a scheme to restrict greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Wall Street Journal:
Just days after his 2002 election, Mr. Romney hired Douglas Foy, one of the states most prominent environmental activists, and put him in charge of supervising four state agencies. With Mr. Foy by his side, Mr. Romney joined activists outside an aging, coal-fired plant in 2003 to show his commitment to the emissions caps. I will not create jobs or hold jobs that kill people, and that plant, that plant kills people, he said.
But when it became obvious that he would not win reelection as governor, Romney set his sights on the GOP presidential nomination. In remaking himself he repudiated his own secretary carrying out his own plan.
Significantly, two of Romneys appointments have how found a home in the Obama White House.
Gina McCarthy, the chief EPA clean air regulator, also worked as an environmental regulator for then-Governor Romney. Her role now is as point guard (nyuk) in the Obama Administrations fight to make coal fired electric generating plants extinct.
EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has taken most of the fire from Republicans as her agency rolls out a slew of controversial new climate and clean air rules. But McCarthy, the EPA assistant administrator of the Office of Air and Radiation, has taken on much of the heavy lifting of writing, structuring, and implementing the rules.

I have to say it - Willard pretty much makes me sick.
The only thing worse than four years of Willard would be four more years of 0 “leadership”.
I think after November a lot of energy needs to go into forming a real freedom loving alternative to the Dems and the GOP. Something like the Libertarian party with a sane foreign policy. Call it the “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness” party... ;-)
I'm not so sure. Republicans in the House and Senate would be less inclined to fight one of their own than a member of the opposite party.
“I’m not so sure. Republicans in the House and Senate would be less inclined to fight one of their own than a member of the opposite party.”
That may be as it may be, but 0 is going to be far worse on judicial appointments. There’s no way the confirmation process will hold off an endless stream of far-left Supreme Court nominees.
I think Romney would do better on that, possibly much better. He’d be getting prodded heavily by the Tea Party wing of the GOP.
Knowing Mormons’ liberalism of late, it does not surprize me that their “peace efforts” promotes this kind of obsenity from Romney.
I think the fix is in:
WE WILL BE RATIONED TO PAY CHINA NOT TO NUKE US, AS WELL AS RUSSIA.
The Globalist socialistas are selling us down the drain.
So, what's the record on Senate members fighting the leader of their own party?
