Presidential Election 2012 - #4309 - VIDEO: Obama Car Czar - You Have to go Back to the 30's to Find Economic Performance this Bad - (4,047 views) Hot Air (2) Sen. Inhofe Warns of Unfettered EPA 2nd Obama Term - Daily Caller (3) A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2013 - Senate Minority Report


You Have to Go Back to the 30's to Find Economic Performance this Bad - Hot Air - Steve Rattner, the former “car czar” for Barack Obama, explains why voters may have narrowly given Obama the edge in the debate on Tuesday night, but give Mitt Romney a 31-point advantage on the economy.

James Inhofe told The Daily Caller about a potentially uninhibited EPA in Obama’s second term. “Now some we’ve killed, some have passed. But this [report] is the list of the ones that [the administration] is leaving until after the election. “It’s pretty clear that if President Obama secures a second term, the Obama-EPA will have a very busy next four years, moving full speed ahead to implement numerous major rules and regulations that he has delayed or punted due to the upcoming election,” the report reads, alleging that 13 specific potential EPA rules and regulations “will strangle economic growth, destroy millions of jobs, and dramatically raise the price of goods, the cost of electricity, and the price of gas.Read more.....
