obama will screw anyone or anything to keep his crib.

Politically damaging regulations held until after election

Florida water pollution rules in election-year limbo | July 30, 2012 | The Associated Press | HT Politics
NetRight Daily » Politically damaging regulations held until after election

Call it an election strategy. President Obama is sitting on numerous regulations, coming from the Environmental Protect Agency (EPA), Agriculture Department and even those concerning worker safety that will likely have to wait for approval until after the elections.

Fighting against this EPA regulation, Free Market America noted that this, “so-called ‘Water Tax’ will cost Florida’s farmers, taxpayers, businesses and consumers billions each year.”

“Issuing more regulations now would not help dispel the perception that President Obama’s administration is ‘anti-business,”’ said John D. Graham, who from 2001 to 2006 headed the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the White House’s political gatekeeper for new rules. And with unemployment at 8 percent, “the Obama administration knows that more costly burdens on business will not create jobs. Those rules will have to wait until after the election.”

Everything is on hold until after elections..you can probably bet on that.

And the Fed just announced no big QE and I'll wager that the WH is putting some pressure on him now to do something between now and November to make things appear better than they are.

Would Obama and his people really keep these things quiet till after the election? Why hell yes they would do just that. If he gets re-elected, as expensive as it is for him, I think we may well be totally amazed at some of the new regulations flowing from the EPA.
