Skip to comments.Jeb Bush: Scott Pruitt is ready to turn around the EPA

Editor's Note: Jeb Bush is the former governor of Florida and was a candidate for the GOP nomination for president in 2016. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his.
(CNN)When Scott Pruitt and I assembled a Restoring Federalism Task Force last year, he headlined the plan: "Putting Washington In Its Place." Those five words sum up exactly what the American people were clamoring for in this election: a dramatic shift of power out of a broken Washington and back into the hands of the people.
I cannot think of a person more suited to lead the Environmental Protection Agency than Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, someone who understands how to rein in an out-of-control bureaucracy and ensure that Washington focuses solely on its core functions.
Pruitt and I share a common vision for empowering the states and limiting the intrusion of the federal government in every area of our lives. He understands that a government closest to the people is best able to serve their interests.

Is he trying to suck-up for a job somewhere in the Trump Administration?
I shall clap with one hand so as to discover the sound of one hand clapping. I presume that the result is the same as what I would like the sound of Yeb speaking to be.
And this of course begs the question as to whom Yeb would have installed as EPA head, to what end and what ideology.
Jebs lips are firmly planted on Rump.....err....Trump.
a candidate for the GOP nomination for president in 2016
And won 4 delegates, some things you should not put on your resume
But then Jeb endorsed him.
gotta keep that Bush name relevant somehow, or else the GOP will shave it.
Let’s see, Jeb Bush likes something.......hmmmm.......why am I suddenly skeptical now.......?
Could it be I am suspicious of Jeb Bush after Jeb being such an incredible Trump-hating loser?
Turning it around does no good in the long term. After Trump it will revive and quickly surpass its 2016 self. Kill it and fire, terminate, discharge all its employees.
Don’t worry Jeb, you haven’t been forgotten.
You will be tried for your crimes against the people along with your Corrupt Father, Brother, the Clinton’s and Obama’s.
You are all a bunch of stinking, murderous traitors
Trump admin. has some great appointees already.... whereas Yeb, if he has somehow become the nominee, would have swooned before Hillary and we would have the renewed Clinton-Bush dynasty preparing for office on Jan. 20.
Dodged a bullet there, thanks to Donald J. Trump and the TRUMP TRAIN!!!
I like the fact that ccn felt it necessary to remind people who jeb (was) is.
(Forgotten but not gone. )
“Some of the old elites seem to realize that the only way they remain relevant is to acquiesce and jump on the Trump Train while they can.”
It’s called ‘convergence’. It’s an infiltration meant only to put people in place to rot the program from the inside.
In the military, it’s called Astroturfing.
There is neither honor nor integrity in any part or person of the Old Elite. Nothing they do is ever for anything other than the destruction of opposition in any form or function.
I know what you mean. I didn't (and still don't) know much about Mr. Pruitt, but since the Greenies were up in arms I figured he must be pretty good.
But then Jeb had to deflate my balloon by endorsing him.
“Turning it around does no good in the long term. After Trump it will revive and quickly surpass its 2016 self. Kill it and fire, terminate, discharge all its employees.”
Even if he does that, it’s a drop in the bucket. We need to get federalism back in play. I grew up in Idaho before the EPA but the Kennedy family used the state as its personal playground, getting huge areas set aside as wilderness areas and such, mainly so they could use it a couple weeks a year when they came to vacation. Afterwards they returned to their Massachusetts broad tax base while we had to cope with the federal government’s ownership of our state. So long as the federal government assumes the power to control land use from afar, whether through monument and park designations, EPA, Army Corps of Engineers, or whatever, we are at its mercy.
Is he trying to suck-up for a job somewhere in the Trump Administration?.................
