Disappointed with Obama’s legislative agenda and his leadership style?
Too many compromises and concessions?
Don’t know what to tell your friends when they complain that the new prez isn’t progressive enough?
Take a quick look at this end-of-the-year report from the Natural Resources Defense Council outlining the administration’s direction and accomplishments on the environment.
Compare that to the previous group of plunderers and science-deniers who populated - and corrupted - the executive branch of the federal government.
Now keep in mind that the upcoming inauguration anniversary will trigger lots of media and internet chatter about where Obama has fallen short.
You won’t hear a lot about how this administration - through political appointments, departmental actions and executive orders - has made substantial progress on environmental preservation, conservation, protection and enforcement.
And, of course, there won’t be much discussion of other critically important matters such as workplace and consumer protections.
We’ll talk about that, among other things, next year.
