Cowardice in the White House

Yesterday, the White House announced that it had ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to abandon a proposed rule that would have significantly reduced emissions of smog-causing chemicals.  See here. The story here is that President Obama once again caved in to Republicans and the business community, who together were crying about having to restrict pollution to protect public health.  Why would Obama give in to them?  They won't give him any credit for doing so, and he simply alienates environmentalists and liberals who helped put him in office.  Why the cowardice?  Why the constant capitulation?  What happened to this presidency? 

What a gross disappointment.
