That’s because: “American jobs have been Obama EPA target since 2009”.
In 2008, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and then-Sen. Obama “had essentially the same position … on the biggest environmental issue out there, which was global warming,” and Obama took positions to neutralize some issues, such as agreeing to consider expanded offshore drilling, said Daniel Weiss, director of climate strategy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
“That will be very different in 2012,” Weiss said. “The Republican candidates … have uniformly opposed EPA rules. They are undoubtedly going to use these rules as a cudgel to attack President Obama as being anti-jobs.”
