Outgoing EPA chief regrets lack of dialogue with rural America
The Hill ^ | 2/4/13 | Zack Colman

Posted on 02/04/2013 5:10:49 PM PST by Nachum

Departing Departing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson said she wished she had communicated better during her tenure with rural regions that felt victimized by the agency’s pollution rules. “If I were starting again, I would from day one make a much stronger effort to do personal outreach in rural America," Jackson said in a wide-ranging interview with Reuters published Monday. Clashes with rural GOP lawmakers characterized much of Jackson’s time in Obama administration, but Jackson has lamented what she says are inaccurate claims about the scope of EPA’s agenda.

By communicating, it does not sound as if she was interested in dialoging, but imposing.

Here’s some dialogue she can take with her.

Mind your own damn business, rural people don’t need some know nothing academic clown telling us how to care for the environment. We do better than any urban liberal envirotard.

Friendly bad regulation remains just that, bad regulation. I’m sure rural America would love to outreach her up along side of the head.

She just needed a good rural America outreach guy...
Hey, what about that guy Richard...you know, Rich Windsor, whose always sending those funny video clips and the off color jokes. He’d be perfect, he never seems to be doing anything.

I am sure she could come up with a Power Point slide to show the ignorant country folk that what she was doing was for their own good. After all, she went to an Ivy league school and knows what is best for all of us.

Jackson would have done better communication with rural Americans using BR549 instead of 50 fictious email addies only known to dem donners.

This twit and all the other nobamaites should have no problem communicating with all those disadvantaged “rural” Pigford recepients.... Oh wait, they turned out to not be rural dwellers afterall, just more of holder’s people looking to fleece the Treasury.

Once again the stupid libs don’t realize their policies are bad and destructive. They think they just didn’t EXPLAIN them properly.

The obozo EPA is nothing more than the SS without the snappy fashion sense.

Jackson thinks a "dialog" is when you tell the peasants how it's going to be.

Dear Public Official,
When I slept in the barn in Pennsylvania in the winter taking care of the livestock, where were you.

You know nothing about hard time. Please don’t break your remote control, you might panic.

Further disrespectful things might follow but I doubt you would understand.

When was the last time you threw a bale of hay on a wagon?

Yet another soft college liberal. The joke is they can’t get a job to pay the loan but I can grow my food.

Peace, baby.

This is typical of Obama and his ruling elites. If you don’t agree with them, it’s because they haven’t explained themselves properly.

Crucify a few of them as warning to other rural opponents. That’s the Obamathug way.

In my experience it means getting the various land trust groups to con little old ladies to sign contracts that make their land unsalable, off limits to hunting, farming, or other improvement for a small tax break.

the ones who died homesteading this land 160 years ago are spinning in their graves

Shove it up your smelly Obama, bimbo, and make sure the door does not hit any of it on your way back to the local Starbucks.

Because the rural people don't read, watch TV or have access to the internet so have no idea what the issues are.

Condescending beoch.

In VA they were sued (and lost so far)for claiming that water itself was a pollutant in violation of the Clean Water Act.

LOL,

I don’t remember that clip but I do remember an episode where Lisa once had a scary premonition of herself becoming a big fat slob ALSO washing her self with a rag on a stick.

I guess even the best do some recycling.

Back in 2004, we had these neo-Nazi criminals at EPA nailed for extortion, insurrection and sedition in Rapanos v US. We also had the commie black robes in the 6th circuit appeals court nailed. The gutless worms in the GOP Congress refused to even hold hearings.

We’ll need to clean this out another way.
