WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration's top environmental official in the oil-rich South and Southwest region has resigned after Republicans targeted him over remarks made two years ago when he used the word "crucify" to describe his approach to enforcement.
In a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson sent Sunday, Al Armendariz says he regrets his words and stresses that they do not reflect his work as administrator of the five-state region including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Tell him to put some ice on it.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Adios Al! He’ll probably just go to some academic sinecure where he can complain of being martyred by the right-wing media.
BTW, for a professor he’s not very good on geography and history. He said the Romans went to little towns in Turkey. Turkey as such didn’t exist in the time of the Romans, most of the coast was Greek settlements, and the interior would have been Anatolia.
This socialist-statist nut should be CRUCIFIED.
Which brings the question, “What to fired libs do when there’s nothing that they really can do that anyone’s willing to pay for?”
Oh, forgot about academia, where one does not really need an education to “educate”.
Here in Oklahoma, our electric company agreed to shut down two coal plants, in a deal with the EPA. Electric rates will rise 20%, just as Obama promised.
Start with energy... If I wanted America to fail
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer Communist Thug!
But there was nothing to it, the WH assured us.
...make room under the bus, there’s others due.
This weasel will prolly go back to Southern Methodist U....he was on leave from there. These commies always have jobs waiting for them either in Gov’t, NGOs, charities, universities. They love to hole up in publicly funded universities and live off the taxpayer ...like Bill Ayers
You nailed it——start with energy. I blast faxed the ‘If I wanted America to Fail” to all my buds in the Oil 8 Gas Industry.
Got a bazilion responses.
“In order to have a “new energy economy”, utility prices must necessarily skyrocket” (broke hussein osama)
People may be taking notes already.
Hah, stop me when you get the idea:
Center for American Progress
People for the American Way
Total unadulterated horseshit
“...........after Republicans targeted him over remarks made two years ago when he used the word “crucify” to describe his approach to enforcement”
No, Dino the Google News reporter has no Left Wing bias, none at all...
I guess Companies will now be crucified by the EEOC for lack of doctrinal diversity when they flee from SMU and fail to employ its engineering graduates.
most of the coast was Greek settlements, ....figured that
and the interior would have been Anatolia. ....never heard of that, and looked it up.
Geez, I love FR. I learn so much from chatting on here.
It’s sad. America has lost a clown. I laughed loud and long at Al. I hope never to hear of future students laughing him out of his classroom — unless YouTube can catch it, so I can see *and* hear it! But seriously, folks, if B Hussein loses a couple more clowns, he’ll have to take on “Buffoon-In-Chief” as yet another of his major titles.
Only in a Nation of PC-Nazis and spineless whimps.
He learned the hard way that in Obamaville you’re just supposed to do it—not tell people you’re doing it.
The wheels on Obama’s bus go round and round.
I play racquetball with a lobyist here in Tulsa. Last Saturday, he mentioned he needed a list of talking points. I pulled out my phone and showed him If I wanted America to fail
He watched it three straigt times. 'Economic suicide pact' is his favorite line. He sent it out to hundreds, including the Governor. At the time, it only had 12,000 hits.
Methinks a groundswell is in the works.
I know what you mean. Although I have been a voracious reader all my life, particularly history philosophy and geography, I have learned tons in FR these last twelve years, usually through links and references posted by others.
This particular area of your interest is little known by anyone, since ancient history is not all that popular, but your questions are partly addressed in the following book, by our (California) very own Victor Davis Hanson :
Lots of learning there. The Greek civil war which lasted 50 years and was as vicious as our own.
The clearer picture of the cradle(s) of Democracy. A grasp of the cultures in Asia Minor and the Eastern Mediterranean, and more about Greek culture that most people learn in a lifetime.
I have reread this book several times and maps are clear and priceless. Just wish there were more of them.
That seems to be the way it is done... let them be incompetent and promote them.
These jerks think they can just apologize and it makes it all better.
He isn’t gone, just reassigned.
In local news, a senior EPA official was killed today when he was mysteriously thrown under a bus.
Right idea. Wrong target.
Marxist revolutionaries, who according to their own writings wish through deceit and subterfuge to replace US Constitution with some statist hierarchy, should be hunted down and executed. Every mother’s son of them. No mercy.
This is what they will do to the rest of us when they succeed.
You are correct....... within one month of arrest, no prolonged legal harangues.
He will pop up somewhere else within the vast federal bureaucracy.
Isn’t this the first Obama minion to actually admit a mistake and step down? Somehow the media didn’t succeed in giving him cover. Interesting.
The crucify video is back on YooBoob, uploaded by Imhof’s office.
