The Deepwater Horizons disaster is firmly etched in the American conscience as an example of bumbling incompetence and haphazard, if not non-existent, leadership.

...

2. Wild Lands: Only two days before Christmas 2011, Salazar announced an end-run around Congress, declaring himself emperor of American lands with a decree that the BLM, and not Congress, would decide which public land was “wild lands” and thus cut off from energy exploration or tourist use.

The vast majority of Colorado politicians have to go to an IQ lottery each year where they bid for the two or three available IQ points in the dim-bulb-crat brain pool.

Betcha he stays on in Washington. If not, he’ll join a politically connected law firm in Denver to, you guessed it, lobby government.
