McCarthy "Wholly Unqualified to serve as EPA Administrator, CEI Says

Nominee Has Misled on Major Regulations and Is Implicated in Email Scandal

By Competitive Enterprise Institute

Gina McCarthy has decades of experience as an environmental bureaucrat, but a number of factors make her wholly unqualified to serve as EPA Administrator, say experts at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. President Barack Obama nominated McCarthy on Monday to succeed Lisa Jackson to lead EPA.

“As Assistant EPA Administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation, Gina McCarthy has implemented radical environmental policies that will put hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work but do little to nothing to improve environmental quality,” said Myron Ebell, Director of the Center for Energy and Environment at CEI.

“McCarthy has regularly tried to conceal the Obama administration’s economically destructive policies by misleading Congress, the public and industry. She has regularly stonewalled congressional requests for crucial information. And she is up to her ears in the Richard Windsor e-mail scandal,” Ebell said.

    I’m shocked the Right would hold up any of Obama’s nominees! They wouldn’t do that as a matter of “governing” by obstruction would they? Nah! And this CEI, well gosh they are objective and credible aren’t they? They must be for this site to have linked to it…

    It’s a no brainer. I am not surprised in the least. It would have been her, or if not her, some other person of the same type. Elections have consequences. But even if the 3 million conservatives that stayed home for the election had gone to the polls and cast a vote for Romney, she might have got the job anyway because she worked for Romney in Mass. Or maybe not. Who knows? My point is that we’ll never know now. No point in being worried about it.

    So in other words this is a non-story, posted by Dan?

      It happens. Though I’m shure it’s not a non-story to Dan, and he had his reasons for posting it. I think it’s pretty much what I expected when we lost the election, so………
