Carol Browner will leave the White House and her post as coordinator for energy and climate policy, a fitting end to the first two years of the Obama Administration and their failure to meet goals in this area.

One explanation put forth for why President Obama and his aides are so upset with the liberal base of the Democratic Party is that they believe Obama has achieved legislative success rivaling that of President Lyndon Johnson, but the base does not appreciate this success. Even NPR’s Mara Liasson easily refuted the “success” aspect of the comparison, but the comparison to LBJ is an especially poor choice for a number of other reasons, as well.

Carol Browner helped BP and the Obama administration to spread the misinformation that 75 percent of the oil from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is “gone”. Scientists at the Georgia Sea Grant counter that up to 79 percent of the oil that entered the waters of the Gulf is still there and capable of having further environmental impact.

I call bullshit on Carol Browner’s media blitzed fib. Now if only I could ground a few government officials and put some BP/Transocean/Halliburton personnel in time out.

On an oddly defensive conference call, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and White House environmental policy advisor Carol Browner tried to downplay the decision on offshore drilling as not the most important aspect of what was announced today, not as intrusive into coastal areas as suggested, and not even wholly the President’s decision, a remarkable pulling away from a policy they just advanced.
