I have screen shots of Romney’s website and I am going to hold him to it. He has two years. Otherwise, he will be facing a hostile Congress...

...of Tea Party members.

” even when the boy is gone we’ll still have to deal with the EPA that made it happen... “

The House of Representatives controls the purse. The Republicans control the house. An agency with no funds can do no ill and cannot enforce regulations issued in the past. The EPA does its dirty work because Mr. Boehner and the Republican party choose to fund it today. There is no need to wait for a change in the White House to reign in the agency.

Ask yourself if Nancy Pelosi were Speaker of the House under a Republican president, and the Democrats wanted an agency to stop doing something, would the House Democrats cut off funding to exert leverage on policy? The answer is obvious — yes. Now ask why the Republicans have done nothing in the nearly two years they’ve controlled the house to limit the actions of rogue agencies by eliminating funding? The answer - either they really agree with the actions of the agency or they are being blackmailed or they abhor conflict or they have lousy leadership.

Power is meaningless if you don’t use it.
