Carl, Great LETTER! You are sooo right. George Miller has been integral to the PROBLEMS plaguing our state and our country - NO solution is he.
It is sickening that the people of this state continue to vote for progrossives like Miller. fyi - Miller makes $175K per year and will eventually retire with a package that 99% of Americans could never hope to receive, including the finest healthcare money can buy (the PEOPLE'S money!)
Well, no one ever went broke under-estimating the American public - Miller is a sterling example.

Fact of life: Democrat or Republican - He who holds the gold makes the rules. Life will never be fair.

Oh, while the Congress writes and passes the legislation, it's the President who either signs the bills into law or affixes a veto on the bill and sends it back to Congress.

The buck stops where?

FW - you seem to cynically gloss over the stark FACT that this nation was FOUNDED precisely BECAUSE we were sick and tired of having those with the gold make the rules! We have a Constitution, Declaration and Bill of Rights to which our representatives (Dem and Rep) SWEAR allegiance! Shall we allow them to simply get away with crapping on their oaths of office?
I grant you, we have morphed into a somewhat benign oligarchy, but that in no way means we must accept it.
Our Founders refused to be ruled by King George, despite his immense stores of gold, and the TEA Patriots of today refuse to accept or endorse an ever-growing government class whose very existence tramples upon our individual liberties. Miller is part and parcel of the ruling class.

Yes, we can still blame George W. Bush. The BP oil spill is a direct legacy of the cozy relationship between regulators and the oil industry encouraged by the Bush administration. The Minerals Management Service rubberstamped every drilling operation, a lack of oversight that let BP pursue a hasty and reckless course.

If President Obama had listened more to the “environmental extremists” instead of the “drill, baby, drill” crowd, he would cracked down immediately on the offshore drillers and the Deepwater Horizon disaster might never have happened.

So.. using your logic we can blame 9/11 and the pension scandels on President Bill Clinton. They occured on Bush's watch, but were hatched under Clinton.
We can blame the Bush recession on Bill Clinton as well, since every economist agrees the "Bush recession" began 8-10 months prior to his oath of office.
Where does the buck stop?

Yes, Obama does share the fault and his fault was in deferring too much to the oil industry and not listening enough to the environmentalists. There was TOO LITTLE government. Government regulators should have been all over the Deepwater Horizon, like white on rice.

Just like Ronald Reagan was blaming Jimmy Carter for troubles and failures well into his (Reagan's) second term?
