The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should use its power for good, not evil, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney told supporters Thursday night at a fundraiser in London where he will attend the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
My view is that the EPA if it keeps to its mission and does not use its power to foster or further an anti-carbon energy agenda would be a more effective department, Romney told the crowd.
Politico is reporting the comments today, and says that Romney also criticized as overreach the Supreme Courts Massachusetts v. EPA decision in 2007.
I happen to think that the decision by the Supreme Court and by the administration to have the EPA also regulate the emissions of carbon dioxide was beyond the intent of the original legislation, Romney said.
I believe the EPA has to see itself as being responsible for our air and water and not take action which can prevent us from taking advantage of the extraordinary energy resources we have, such as coal, oil, natural gas, Romney said.

This election will be decided by a few thousand moderates in a few states. If he said he would eliminate the EPA some on FR would cheer....but it would be political suicide. The media and obama would rip him to shreds.
The return of the winning McCain strategy.
Oh brother. Is the EPA a GLOBAL FORCE FOR GOOD???
Nixon probably never dreamed the way the EPA operates today!
It can be useful if run right! Probably better to abolish it if it cannot behave!
But it’s stupid vs. evil.

This is why Wee Willie’s secret/sacred sacrament panhandling meeting in Israel is secret and sacred...
Oh SNAP !!!
ALL such agencies should be converted into advisory councils to congress so they can pass laws intact and not leave the details of laws up to such agencies of unelected employees through “regulations”.
That’s effectively what this does.

Its been dead in the water since February of 2011. It hasnt even made it to committee despite over 100 co sponsors.
He’s with Algore’s global warming “science.”
The EPA problem goes much deeper than either Romney or obuma.
In the Rapanos v US case we had the Nazis at EPA nailed down for extortion and sedition. The gutless US House refused to even hold hearings. The entire EPA hierarchy should have been swinging from ropes.
The fact that the EPA exists is a signpost that the criminal fascist syndicate has taken over Washington. The states that are passing legislation to arrest these traitors are doing the right thing.
