Members of Congress and Texas officials jumped on Armendariz's words as proof that he had run the EPA's regional office as an anti-industry zealot.

I wish the MSM would do a better job explaining that this guy was hand picked and appointed by Barack Obama, our president.

He's lost nothing at all...he'll simply be moved into one of the “arms” of the organization.....tentacles stretch worldwide so he's sure to be placed elsewhere.

He should be forced to work in a coal mine for ten years. The little prick doesn’t know what real work is.

I’m surprised the resigned. The Federal Machine must be working on moving him around where he can wreak more havoc on the American people from behind the scenes.

In a free capitalist society a man like this should NEVER get anywhere near this kind of position. The fact that he was should give everyone the chills.

Do these people know where their food and energy comes from and how it gets to them?

So, at what Communiversity will he land the incredibly easy, and hideously over-reimbursed gig, as a tenured professor?
