As Predicted, A New Obama Adminstration Scandal Before Noon

Me, 6:55am: "New Obama administration scandal by noon? I'll take the under."

A mere 24 minutes later, this story was published: EPA waives fee requests for friendly groups, denies conservative groups

Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

I have no idea where these low-level employees could have gotten the idea that it's okay to treat people differently based on their political leanings.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a president in the White House who referred to Americans who disagree with him as 'our enemies.' Think about that. He actually used that word. When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word 'enemy,' they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators -- enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country. Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word 'enemy' for fellow Americans -- fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government -- people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses to create jobs. Mr. President, there's a word for people who have the audacity to speak up in defense of freedom, the Constitution, and the values of limited government that made our country great. We don't call them 'enemies.' We call them 'patriots.'

John Boehner didn't know how right he was there.

Update: As a reminder, there's another scandal involving EPA and their use of private email accounts (e.g., former administrator Lisa 'Richard Windsor' Jackson) that CEI's Chris Horner was already pursuing.
