The Obama administration's chief environmental watchdog, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, is stepping down after a nearly four-year tenure marked by high-profile brawls over global warming pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, new controls on coal-fired plants and several other hot-button issues that affect the nation's economy and people's health.

Thank God this evil America-hating witch is leaving but her replacement will probably be worse.

Congress should continue their 'investigation' into her bogus "Richard Windsor' (and others) E-mail accounts anyway.

No idea why the writer pointed out that she was the first black administrator ~ unless there's some sort of degree of incompetency that comes with her being black.

In my own opinion she was as incompetent as any of them ~ which is not at all surprising. Frankly, all of them have been pretty bad and should now be sitting in a federal prison.

The Obama EPA has devolved into a bizarre anti capitalist fiasco. Its endless rules and regulations have stifled new business development of all sorts and has resulted in cutbacks throughout the entire productive economy. Real wealth contraction and miserable poverty are its legacy. Ultimately Jackson’s silly tenure will cause grave enviormental degradation.

“He (Obama) thanked her for serving and praised her “unwavering commitment” to the public’s health.”

So HE thanks HER for HER “unwavering commitment” to public health as the head of the EPA.

Seems to be a trend here.

Abolish the EPA, FEC ,FCC, IRS, government schools, and the rest of the 1000’s of government agencies and depts Now. All government does is cripple business ,take away our individual rights, destroy our liberties and freedom. All the government should do is military, international issues(dealing with other countries leave us American citizens alone), border control.

The media (democrats) and the democrats want to make government more powerful and at the same time the individual less powerful: look at everything they do from the campaign to take away our gun ownership rights , having government run our healtchare and charities and everything

If Congress was serious about cutting spending, it would get rid of the EPA and dozens of other departments, bureaus and agencies. Of course, that will never happen. Government won’t give up control of our lives without a fight. Besides, Congress and the president need all this bureaucracy to create jobs for their relatives, friends, neighbors and campaign contributors.

Getting rid of Lisa Jackson? And I thought I had opened all my Christmas presents!

Somebody must have snapped a photo of her hand in the cookie jar. This is one mean and ambitious human being. I can’t believe she left voluntarily.

Call me skeptical. But I remember I thought nothing could be worse for the U.S. than if they put Hillary Clinton in the oval office, and then we got Obama...

So, I will hold off comments until I hear who is replacing this witch. Maybe she didn’t destroy enough according to the administation.

Two reasons come to mind -

“See!? America’s still racist, driving out the first black EPA administrator like that.”

and, implied,

“She shouldn’t be held to the same competency standard as a white administrator and shouldn’t have to step down.”

"In my own opinion she was as incompetent as any of them ~ which is not at all surprising. Frankly, all of them have been pretty bad and should now be sitting in a federal prison."

Excellent summation, however Congress has allowed the EPA to become judge, jury and executioner of our nation's business activity by their failure to excercise oversight under the Congressional Review Act.

DOJ gets most of the head lines for their selective use - or non use - of laws.

But the real scary department IMHO, freedom wise - is the EPA.

They have no legislative checks and are obviously on a mission

Absolutely...Many heads should roll over that debacle and I wouldn't be surprised if that's why she's leaving. Obama's praise for her says he knew all about it and probably condoned it.

Another non qualified affirmative action hire now can live off her government pension and the graft she accumulated in her 4 years (48 months) of government service for the rest of her life.

I think you nailed it.
I have some experience with Jackson from when she was the NJ DEP commissioner. She has a reputation amongst the Libs as an administrator who introduces many initiatives but is ineffective at actually getting them adopted into law. She was so inept, that I know of several NJ business groups that were sad to see her leave the DEP for the EPA job.

Add me to your list.
From an ideology standpoint; Jackson is as left wing as it gets, but she is inept in her administrative skills. They will replace her with someone who will be more aggressive and effective in advancing the lib agenda.

Keep an eye on her bank account. She, no doubt, is the recipient of a HUGE payoff, courtesy of the taxpayers. Remember the Agriculture Secretary who ran the Pigford scam? She and her husband were rewarded bigtime. Just another exampe of Obama spreading the wealth around.

I'll bet this is why she's leaving; there's shady stuff in those accounts and she doesn't want to face Congress.

Like you, I hope they do the investigation anyway. She'll probably get "a concussion" too.

That’s racism and sexism. White males can be just as incompetent as Lisa Jackson, if not more. Judge her by the content of her character, which contains zero preservatives, MSG, vitamins, minerals, or protein, but is high in sodium, saturated fats (especially in her head) and carbohydrates.

I still remember the New Zealand sheep rancher's tax revolt when their government tried to levy a tax on sheep farts. They were chantin... "WE WON'T PAY YOUR FART TAX, NO BLEEPIN WAY!!!" (that was between 5 and 10 years ago)

That was better than Howard Jarvis and Paul Gann's chants ever were but obviously just as important to them ranchers. I wish you and all the other lovable FReepers I know a LUCKY NEW YEAR because it ends in "13" so watch out and try not to be superstitious. (menacing grin)(smirk)

Lisa Jackson, the head of the EPA, was the protege’ of marxist Carol Browner (International Socialist Organization).

Their goals were to cripple American industry with rules and regulations that bordered on insanity, and nearly got away with it.

There are legitimate environmental concerns that could need pragnatic laws and regulations, but the marxist assault was all-out warfare against free enterprise.

It will be very interesting to see who is nominated for the empty position. Look for one of the heads of the Natural Resources Defense Council, Earthjustice, the Sierra Club, or the Soros front, Campaign for American Progress to be chosen.

The marxist left is the greatest threat to the economic environment of America. Treat them as a they enemy because they are.
