Earlier I noted the White House’s ‘environmental justice’ confab taking up the better part of a day for the better part of his cabinet.
Carter Wood at the National Association of Manufacturers has more here, which opens:
President Obama made headlines by meeting with CEOs earlier this week, offering a hint of an Administration becoming friendlier toward business and pursuing a “path that will lead to economic success.” Attendees regarded the discussions as a positive exchange about jobs and the economy.
Yet at the same time, the White House was hosting its “White House Forum on Environmental Justice” with an implicit anti-business bias and calls for economic redistribution. Private-sector jobs were not really an issue.
This long-building pivot by the statist greens is a sure bet to be among the top angles in 2011 and 2012 to revive the Left-wing base, buttressing the president’s re-elect effort while trying to give some populist juice to the ‘green jobs’ subsidy- and mandate-boon being lobbied for by the usual suspects of GE, Duke Energy, Iberdrola and Wall Street investment houses.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
