[lJ :[t I1:1 I] i |1]-'| f:| Ig SENATOR INHOFE UNERRING ON EPA by Edward P. Shallow Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) recently blasted an Environ- mental Protection Agency officials claim that the agency was trying to crucify them" a strategy against oil and gas companies, calling it a part of President Barack Obama's war on energy. "Let's keep in mind, this is all part of Obama's war on domestic energy." Inhofe said on Fox & Friends. Obama is the one who said that we have good natu- ral gas and it is plentiful and all of that but we have to stop hydraulic fracturing. This is the war on hydraulic fracturing. Inhofe, the ranking Republican member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, has announced that he launched an investigation into an EPA official's comments from 2010 that were caught on tape, in which he compared the agency's enforce= ment policies to how Romans used to crucify people. I was in meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropri- ate for the meeting but I'll go ahead and tell you what I said, "EPA Region 6 Administrator Al Armendariz says in the video Inhofe also has said that the Obama administration was trying to put an end to hydraulic fracturing -- a technique that he argued was critical for obtaining natural gas -- by using "intimidation" and "threats." The Oklahoma Republican also accused the president of trying to appease both the left and the right. Armendariz, the EPA official in the 2010 video who is taking heat for the "crucify" comments, has since offered an apology for his remarks. "I apologize to those I have offended and regret my poor choice of words," he said. (Information Politico) Some think Ron Paul is a nut, but he is the only one who will take the drastic measures needed. In conclusion, the so called moderate voters who will decide the election better get solidly behind Mitt Romney he represents our only hope for energy independence.
