Did The President REALLY Say This??

Boy, this really has some farmers scratching their heads!!

Virginia Farmer/2010
Obama Wrongly Disses Farmer
By  Brian Sussman

During a Wednesday town hall meeting in Atkinson, Illinois, a farmer expressed concern to President Obama regarding forthcoming regulations involving dust.

President Obama arrogantly dismissed the farmer, saying, “Don’t always believe what you hear.” Obama added that, “Nobody is more interested in seeing our agricultural sector successful than I am, partly because I come from a farm state.”

Once again Mr. Obama proved himself to be a reckless, uncaring demagogue.  The fact is the Environmental Protection Agency is considering revising the National Ambient Air Quality Standard in such a way that particulate matter, such as agricultural dust, could be regulated.

In a letter written to Obama’s handpicked EPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson, 16 Senators–representing both parties– concerned about these potential regulations stated, “Whether it’s livestock kicking up dust, soybeans being combined on a dry day in the fall, or driving a car down the gravel road, dust is a naturally occurring event.”  If the EPA particulate standards were altered, the Senators wrote,  it would “impose significant costs to farmers and businesses.”

Mr. Farmer, you sir, are the backbone of America. Our President dissed you, but we salute you.  You work hard and provide us with a wonderful product that we enjoy and depend on.

By the way, Mr. President, we didn’t know Indonesia is a farm state.
