GOP senator would likely oppose potential Romney EPA chief nominee

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) is signaling that fealty to former President George W. Bush’s administration does not guarantee a potential senior nominee a clear path through Senate confirmation.

Vitter told Greenwire last week that James Connaughton, Bush’s former head of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, would not get his support to be Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator. [The Hill]

  1. Give our enviro-activist friends credit, one of their more successful narratives was that George W was against global warming. He never was, a fact that is abundantly obvious when anyone rummages through his old speeches where he mentioned it. He only opposed mandatory cuts in CO2 emissions, and his top people like Connaughton and his first EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman echoed this.
