One down, at least 31 more to go:
“I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today.
On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.
I have been inundated with calls – from across the political spectrum – urging me to “stay and fight.”
But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.
It has been a great honor to serve my country and my President in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement. I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future. I will continue to do so, in the months and years ahead.”
Did he sign it, “Love & Commie Kisses, Van”?
It’s really a pity that someone who is apparently so bright went so wrong. First by buying into the victim mentality and then by using that bright mind to push for something that history has proved time and time again will reward no one but a few who pull the real strings.
It’s time for reflection, Van. A time to realize that you, along with so many others, have simply been used to further the ambitions of a few, and to understand that there never was a place for you at their exclusive, elitist table. That was only a carrot dangled in order to get you to be a front man and to take the fall for them should, as has happened, their nefarious tactics come to light.
Knocking down others in order to raise yourself has never worked. Only by supporting the United States Constitution will you find that you may freely pursue your own happiness and, in that pursuit, perhaps even find it.
