WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration's top environmental official in the oil-rich South and Southwest region has resigned after Republicans targeted him over remarks made two years ago when he used the word "crucify" to describe his approach to enforcement.

In a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson sent Sunday, Al Armendariz says he regrets his words and stresses that they do not reflect his work as administrator of the five-state region including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Adios Al! He’ll probably just go to some academic sinecure where he can complain of being martyred by the right-wing media.

BTW, for a professor he’s not very good on geography and history. He said the Romans went to little towns in Turkey. Turkey as such didn’t exist in the time of the Romans, most of the coast was Greek settlements, and the interior would have been Anatolia.

Which brings the question, “What to fired libs do when there’s nothing that they really can do that anyone’s willing to pay for?”

Oh, forgot about academia, where one does not really need an education to “educate”.

So now evrything is OK in the EPA! /s

Here in Oklahoma, our electric company agreed to shut down two coal plants, in a deal with the EPA. Electric rates will rise 20%, just as Obama promised.

I guess Companies will now be “crucified” by the EEOC for lack of doctrinal diversity when they flee from SMU and fail to employ it’s engineering graduates.

most of the coast was Greek settlements, ....figured that

It’s sad. America has lost a clown. I laughed loud and long at Al. I hope never to hear of future students laughing him out of his classroom — unless YouTube can catch it, so I can see *and* hear it! But seriously, folks, if B Hussein loses a couple more clowns, he’ll have to take on “Buffoon-In-Chief” as yet another of his major titles.

He learned the hard way that in Obamaville you’re just supposed to do it—not tell people you’re doing it.

The wheels on Obama’s bus go round and round.

The problem with academia as a safe haven for fired liberals is that that is what is driving up college costs for students, that is, supporting the lifestyles of the liberal staff at the universities.

I play racquetball with a lobyist here in Tulsa. Last Saturday, he mentioned he needed a list of talking points. I pulled out my phone and showed him If I wanted America to fail

He watched it three straigt times. 'Economic suicide pact' is his favorite line. He sent it out to hundreds, including the Governor. At the time, it only had 12,000 hits.

Methinks a groundswell is in the works.

I know what you mean. Although I have been a voracious reader all my life, particularly history philosophy and geography, I have learned tons in FR these last twelve years, usually through links and references posted by others.

This particular area of your interest is little known by anyone, since ancient history is not all that popular, but your questions are partly addressed in the following book, by our (California) very own Victor Davis Hanson :

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lots of learning there. The Greek civil war which lasted 50 years and was as vicious as our own.
The clearer picture of the cradle(s) of Democracy. A grasp of the cultures in Asia Minor and the Eastern Mediterranean, and more about Greek culture that most people learn in a lifetime.

I have reread this book several times and maps are clear and priceless. Just wish there were more of them.

That seems to be the way it is done... let them be incompetent and promote them.

These jerks think they can just apologize and it makes it all better.

He isn’t gone, just reassigned.

Right idea. Wrong target.

Marxist revolutionaries, who according to their own writings wish through deceit and subterfuge to replace US Constitution with some statist hierarchy, should be hunted down and executed. Every mother’s son of them. No mercy.

This is what they will do to the rest of us when they succeed.

Isn’t this the first Obama minion to actually admit a mistake and step down? Somehow the media didn’t succeed in giving him cover. Interesting.
