For the last two years, we’ve been subjected to the vagaries of Obama’s climate/energy czar Carol Browner, whose well-documented put-up of a job-murdering and counterproductive offshore drilling moratorium this year has crushed Louisiana’s economy and led to a precipitous decline in domestic oil production.
The word is that Browner is about to ascend to a post as the White House Chief of Staff sometime early next year, where her well-known socialist tendencies and ties to George Soros will make for regulatory hell and widespread corruption in Washington – with Louisiana’s productive economy remaining in the crosshairs.
Browner’s ascension will open up a job in the Obama administration – and an opportunity for the president to “reach across the aisle” and form a “bipartisan consensus” on energy and climate issues. Lo and behold, there’s a ready-made and available candidate to fit the bill.
Enter failed California governor and nominal Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Hollywood action hero told the Los Angeles Times editorial board that he’d love a chance to work in the Obama administration. What’s more, he touted himself for Browner’s job.
