Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

The Kingmaker Speaks

Former RINO and current self-aggrandizing kingmaker, Senator “Jumpin’” Jim Jeffords of Vermont, has slammed the Bush environmental record.

President Bush has moved the nation backward on environmental issues by weakening clean air and water laws, Sen. James Jeffords said in the Democrats’ weekly radio response aired Saturday. [emaphasis added]

“The Bush administration has continued its pattern of sacrificing our environment to the demands of special interests,” said Jeffords, outgoing chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. [emphasis added]

“This year the power industry is getting a nice Christmas gift, the biggest weakening of the Clean Air Act in history,” said the Vermont senator, an independent who generally associates himself with the Democrats.[emphasis added]

Democrats awarded Jeffords with the chairmanship of the environment committee after he left the Republican Party in June 2001 to become an independent, a move that gave Democrats control of the Senate. He will lose that position in January when Republicans again become the majority party following gains in the midterm election. [emphasis added]

Could this guy be any more transparent?  Especially in light of the fact that the gutless coward wants to be a Republican again.
