Pruitt Out At EPA

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 9, 2018

         THE OUSTER – OR IF YOU PREFER, THE RESIGNATION – OF SCOTT PRUITT AS ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY IS A VICTORY FOR THE FAR-LEFT AND THOSE WHO WORSHIP PLANET EARTH AND BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING. BUT PRUITT LARGELY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN DEMISE. HE TOOK ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE ADMINISTRATION’S POLICIES AND MADE EVERYONE FOCUS ON HIS ETHICS, OR LACK THEREOF.

         AS A WALL STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL NOTED, PRUITT MISUSED PRIVATE AIR TRAVEL. HE SENT HIS STAFF ON PERSONAL ERRANDS AND BOUGHT PENS COSTING $1560. HE ALSO ALLEGEDLY USED HIS POSITION TO GET HIS WIFE A JOB THAT WOULD PAY SIX FIGURES, OR OPEN A FAST FOOD FRANCHISE.

         IF YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN IN A POSITION THE LEFT CONSIDERS ITS OWN PROPERTY, LIKE THE EPA, YOU HAVE TO HAVE ETHICS AS HIGH AS THE BEST CREDIT RATING. NO DECISION SHOULD BE MADE WTHOUT CONSULTING A GENERAL COUNSUL AND ASKING ONE’S SELF, HOW WILL THIS LOOK TO THE MEDIA?

         PRUITT AND TRUMP’S POLICIES ON THE ENVIRONMENT ARE GOOD, BUT PRUITT MADE HIMSELF THE ISSUE AND NOW HE’S GONE. HE SHOULD BE REPLACED BY SOMEONE WITH THE SAME PHILOSOPHY BUT BETTER ETHICS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
