Default Scott Pruitt out

Good riddance! I'm not sure I've read a more pathetic and absurd resignation letter.

Normally I would say this is the best news I've heard in weeks, but considering that Trump is likely to appoint an even worse replacement, I'll hold my breath...

You get enough bashing from other members, so I just stay out of the fray, but your elation every time Trump’s administration stumbles, really does get old. If Pruitt needs to go, he needs to go. Every administration has had bad apples.

I really like what he was doing in the way of deregulation and reversing bureaucratic overreach at the EPA but the troubles that lead to his resignation are 100% self inflicted. Even the underlings he brought with him from Oklahoma - formerly big admirers and Trump supporters - are embarrassed by his abuses. When you get some power it exposes true character. I am disappointed.

Yeah, he kind of earned this one. They could have handled this better.

If I posted here every time the Trump administration stumbled I'd have to shed some hobbies to have enough time.

Your post seems really ironic. The PCE forum is 95+% conservative/Trumpian/Breitbart. I start 2 posts in one day about actual news that really happened and it's difficult for some to endure.

Scott Pruitt's departure is a good thing for America, so I'm not sure why you wouldn't expect reasonable people to be pleased about it.

I get that the forum has a strong right wing bias and relishes pro-Trump and anti-Moderate/Liberal news, but come on....

so where were you and your boy toy the last several weeks while Trump was being the leader most of us knew he would be. Apparently somewhere in the fetal position in hiding.

I was simply pointing out that every administration has had cabinet members that had issues. Remember the tax issues that several members of the former administration had? I’m simply saying that you seem to get overly excited when anything happens negatively in this administration. Why don’t we all hope for success regardless of party?

I'm not directing this at you personally, but that's a pretty hypocritical comment to make in this forum. A one-way street comes to mind.

Success is subjective. Most here would say Pruitt was a policy success. I'd say he was a disaster. There wasn't a cabinet member that I disliked more for policy and political reasons.

I think you're confusing excitement with debate. Yes, I'm pleased that Pruitt is out. I'd be interested how many more instances you can find of me posting with gleeful excitement about the Trump administration's controversies. My post history is available for your review.

I bet your last sentence got some laughs from the forum.

I've expressed my opinion about Scott Pruitt multiple times on this forum.

I understand the new acting EPA Administrator is a former coal lobbyist. It's like Iran being on the UN Commission on Human Rights. A total joke....

LoL
We were all jumping for joy here when Obama got a few things right.
Right???

It's mighty convenient to want to be a happy family when your guy rules the roost.
But when the shoe is on the other foot....




I had to Google your first claim and after I read it I laughed:

Pruitt’s policy was exactly what trump no told him to do. He was doing what he was supposed to do, and he did it. Those changes were good for this countries economy, and despite all the screaming about how much harm it would do to the “environment”, it won’t. It stream lined or removed buerocratic overlapping regulations that did nothing but gum up any type of progress. Now, instead of reaching a conclusion in years, it can be done in months. That’s progress, and it hurts NO-ONE.
Pruitt made a mess of his “personal” office ethics. He should be removed for THAT. It has nothing to do with policy.
If the previous administration had followed the same practices, removing those that did not preform, or allowed their personal preferences to get out of hand, then I’m sure it would have been much better for all of us.

If they aren't the same then they must be both gone off together. Him and T-bag both have been pretty abxent on both of their failed recent threads.
They are lame and wrong as usual, but they do use big words with a lot of quoted text from left wing news to make them look smarter than they really are.

No doubt! Not sure what he was thinking...….drain the swamp works for me but Pruitt was the swamp.

Yep, just was not thinking beyond his own little world. Glad he moved on and hopefully he can stay out of the news.

I don’t know who he brought with him from Oklahoma but agree completely with everything else.
