Is this the “Environmental” President we were promised with Hope and Change?

My show broadcast on WGCH on Memorial Day this year was a commentary that I wanted to make about the cronyism and corruption in this current White House that made campaign promises to be different, transparent, to bring “change” to the status quo.

We were all wrong about Mr. Obama. His lack of experience, lack of ethics, inability to forgo campaign contributions from polluting mega-corporations [like BP, and other oil conglomerates and big, dirty Agriculture giants], and his lack of anything resembling a backbone has been totally astonishing, harrowing to watch, and numbing.

He may not have had the slogan of, “Drill Baby Drill” but he quietly did it anyway.

He feigned “Environmentalism” in order to garner votes. He lied.

Read \"The Culture of Corruption\" by Michelle Malkin

Look at the people our ‘Chicago-style Politician’ we elected has surrounded himself with: NO “Change” will be seen from anyone he has appointed to his Cabinet.

The Cattle Rancher and Oil Man as our Secretary of Interior? Hmmmm.

Case in point: Ken Salazar, Secretary of Interior. The Mineral Management Service is overseen entirely by Ken Salazar. Mr. Salazar’s head needs to roll over the BP oil gusher disaster– historically, the worst and most horrific environmental rape in American History.

Look at Ken Salazar’s abysmal past record:

– In 2005, he voted against increasing fuel efficiency for cars and trucks. Remember, he is an oil and gas man who is interested in keeping his pockets lined.

– He also opposed an ammendment to repeal tax breaks for Exxon Mobile and other Big, dirty oil companies and supports oil, and gas drilling on Federal lands that are environmentally sensitive with little to no restrictions.

– In 2006, Ken Salazar voted to end protections that limit offshore Florida Gulf Coast drilling!

– In 2006, Ken Salazar voted FOR big subsidies for the livestock industry! Your tax dollars used to line his pockets, again. The livestock industry has a long, terrible, irresponsible past with pollution, animal cruelty, and killing our endangered wildlife by the millions.

– Ken Salazar also voted in favor of Ranchers using public lands and national forests for cattle grazing! This explains WHY, under Salazar, our Wild Horses and Burros [and other nationally treasured wildlife] have been massacred mercilessly with horrific “round ups” and brutal murder.

– Ken Salazar also fought efforts to increase Farm Bill protections for Endangered Species and for the environment.

– Ken Salazar also threatened to sue the US Fish and Wildlife Service when its Scientists determined that the black-tailed Prairie Dog may be endangered.

– In 2007, Ken Salazar was one of the few Democratic Senators to oppose a Bill to require the Army Corps of Engineers to consider global warming when planning water projects!

– The Fund for Animals gives Salazar a 0% for his voting record!

Take a long look at the death and destruction the cronyism of Obama and his selected cabinet who are totally corrupt and are amongst the ugliest group when it comes to environmental destruction.

Immediately AFTER the BP Gulf Oil Disaster, 27 new off shore drilling permits were issued under the ineffective watch of Salazar. Corruption at its worst.

Just asking…. why would a President-elect, who made campaign promises as an ‘Environmentalist,’ not bother to appoint qualified, environmentally responsible people with strong track records to oversee the most important aspects of governmental regulatory departments?
