Posted on 04/26/2012 4:07:08 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The Obama-appointed Environmental Protection Agency official who explained that the agency uses a crucify them enforcement philosophy against oil and gas companies apologized for his comments on Wednesday night.
I apologize to those I have offended and regret my poor choice of words, Region 6 EPA Administrator Al Armendariz said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller. It was an offensive and inaccurate way to portray our efforts to address potential violations of our nations environmental laws. I am and have always been committed to fair and vigorous enforcement of those laws.

We need nothing short of a total dismantling, firing everyone, then rebuilding the EPA (there is a need) into a government agency which helps, not crucify, industry to develop cost effective ways to minimize or eliminate PROVABLE contaminants being discharged into our environment.
The EPA is just a symptom of what you get when lazy Americans continue to vote lawyers into office. Not everything can or should be fixed with a law. We need a much broader spectrum of government officials and 95% fewer lawyers. Let them do what they do best, chase ambulances.
“I am sorry I revealed our true agenda,” meant the spokesperson.
Meaning: I am committed to fair and vigorous crucifixions.
It is not what he said that is offensive. He merely recited the philosophy of what the EPA does on a daily basis to struggling American businesses. He just stated a fact.
He needs to apologize to all the small businesses that he and his left wing wacko bureaucrats have crucified. He needs to return the fines and stop trying to destroy our economy and our way of life. He needs to be fired and then prosecuted.
We need to thank him for revealing the truth about his agency.
Another version of the You Tube hit “If I wanted America to fail”....... by Al Armendariz????
“Crucify”; “Romans”; (”Italians”)
Sounds like Al Armendariz must have been sitting in the same pew when Rev Wright was giving his racist history/religious sermons.
You dont just pull a statement like crucify them that out of the air. That was a command...and you know where it came from.
The real problem is, no matter who is in the WH, these pukes will remain on the payroll.
I am so sickened to what's happening in this great nation with the Dems, the White House, Czars (illegal) and a ton of GOP establishment morooons. The likes of Hatch, McConnell, Boo Hoo Boehner and many more GOP MUST go. They are part of the problem.
The war on American made energy must stop immediately. God help us if zippy gets another 4 years to totally destroy this country with the help of Soros.
A non-apology. They are sorry if you are offended. Other than that, no apology required.
It’s the old “I sure am sorry ......................................................................................................................... that I got caught” routine.
There must be a real culture of hatred and arrogance at the EPA for a regional administrator to be making these comments in public.
The one thing they could do that they will not do to reduce the population and consummption in the US without commiting genocide, is to halt immigration. They would rather kill people with abortion, poverty and starvation like Stalin. They do hate your life and the lives of your children.
You are too easy.
He's got to do it twice before I accept his apology, first time in his mouth, second time in his eye.
Maybe then I might consider him sincere, maybe.
He still wants to KILL ENERGY EXPLORATION!!!
He was pressured into apologizing for the analogy, NOT his message!!
I apologize to those I have offended and regret my poor choice of words,
. . . in other words, you use the phrase "to those I have offended" or "if my words offended anyone" or another variant of the theme . . .
. . . it's a friggen tell for an insincere apology.
You're either sorry or you are not. Period.
If the “apology” is not accompanied by a resignation...it doesn’t mean squat.
The attitude of the staff is a reflection of the attitude of the management... yeah, a culture of hatred.
Apology not accepted from this scrawny A-hole. He has been raising hell here in Texas since 2009. Our wonderful spinators and congresscritters have not done a damn thing. Never have and never will. He is hispanic, latino, whatever the hell we call them now and to get rid of the little pinhead would be racist of course. Fine, be racist.
Hate cuts both ways. How about self immolation? Nothing but a worthless traitor communist.
I am for some reason reminded recently, of the Nixon administration.
And how it was liberals. Hillary Clinton. The MSM.
Every single member, of the bunch now coddling and excusing. No!... actively promoting ... far worse behavior by this corrupt regime.
Where are today’s Woodwards and Bernsteins?
There they are. Look. Lower. On the ground.
Carefully spit-polishing Obama’s shoes.
