I've got down prices seems.
Yeah alert for President Obama set to nominate business executive Sally jolt to run the Interior Department -- who often Monica Crowley mildly goal here in the next three minutes or so will be to try to get money can data to yell at each other -- -- -- backfire and she will end up probable that the yelling and even -- Monica what should start she's the guest and she's here to predictably argue -- argue I would think.
That this is a bad choice because president Obama's making -- -- -- my.
-- -- it -- -- very impressive woman you look at her resume she is the top business executives she has an energy background she's an engineer she worked for a mobile since she heard a lot of experience that I think that could come into play effectively in the Interior Department.
My only problem here is that even.
Some of the most impressive people who have served in Obama's cabinet and -- being co opted somehow -- -- obviously there to serve the president's agenda obviously.
But I funded a lot of cases even the most strong willed impressive people and dot getting used against profit.
Buy that argument you're suggesting that this woman who ran REI the outdoor retailer one of the best companies to work for.
In the country started as petroleum engineer for mobile in Oklahoma and Colorado.
Did she just a big -- piece of played that she's gonna let herself get molded and dictated to.
By the president and the administration she's not.
Now -- -- but what is she -- like most people get involved in the machine -- machinery of the federal government they do kind of get chewed up and and spit out.
This woman does she very strong will she is incredibly impressive don't get me wrong.
But she doesn't have a lot of experience in government and in government service so I'm not quite sure she's.
Prepared for what's going to be hitting her -- talking about specifically by the way because these people are as you point out there to carry out.
Forward to execute implement the president's policy right and they lose -- at the president presidents.
Round Crockett have absolutely who came in.
That changed mean debacle relatively talking about -- who who's different.
After serving in the administration and I -- I think you know Hillary Clinton who's the most strong willed and came in with most independent portfolio.
She to a great extent kind of got co opted where she didn't have an independent power base which I think she thought maybe she could enjoy -- Barack Obama made sure she -- have that and it's really a criticism of the president because every president sort of does that they need to control their agencies.
And their people but I think a lot of people are celebrating this jewel coming in because she does have this private sector experience especially -- what is us acting head of people none none for the last four year -- and a at a I don't criticize that and and it happened -- of all OK well at best so let's make this been an outstanding question I would love to see her come and and and argue very powerfully to the president and others in the cabinet for say expanding oil drilling.
Using federal lands for oil drilling for fracking I'd love to see her make some very powerful independent arguments and then see where she comes out on the other than what.
Be -- success if she can balance both environmental groups and the oil business and just prevent them from taking away what we RD half.
On federal land is that safe to say because again that you've got a a democratic administration.
And you have a big push from the environmental groups witnessed the Keystone Pipeline if she can't just keep the status quo isn't that a get back.
Gap probably I mean I would love to see her come.
Come in an argue powerfully to the president on the Keystone Pipeline.
Which you know she has some natural allies in the labor unions yeah who would love to see this thing go through and she can make an employment argument in that regard -- -- She's able to very independently and powerfully articulate these -- arguments the president and prevail -- Then we know she will have done her job well done -- and I think you got to come around -- Our side of the thank you very much a -- mocking -- I'm with on the.
Public deficit Henis and I thought Santa Monica my pleasure to have -- on the radio this weekend only now very much as the Monica Crowley -- great to see if I want.
