I love how the hard right is having a circle jerk over this audio...

But of course he has to keep those "wants" a secret from the majority of voting Americans who don't necessarily want "the things he actually wants."

Not the majority. Elections are determined by a minority of voters: the "undecideds."

EPA Proposes CO2 Limits at New Power Plants

WASHINGTON—The Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday proposed strict limits on greenhouse-gas emissions from new power plants, a move expected to curtail construction of new coal-fired power stations.

The agency proposed a standard of 1,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emissions per megawatt hour, a limit that analysts said would effectively ban new coal-fired stations unless they use carbon-capture technology, which hasn't yet been proven cost-effective.

Really?

I dunno, I think one might be surprised sometimes at what the "majority" wants.

Course, then again, I don't go by "the majority wants/doesn't want it" for why we should or shouldn't do something. I go by, "Will it help our country and make it better for the people living here? Yes? No?" Then go from there.

Taking a single data point tells you absolutely nothing, but this is a cable news story being written to fit an editorial narrative, so why am I even bothering to type out these two paragraphs?

If there is less federal soil it can't be due to rising sea levels because the mere election of President Obama ended that. Are we shrinking or something?

Obama Budget Rejected by House in 414-0 Vote

Quote:
Obama Budget Rejected by House in 414-0 Vote

The House of Representatives rejected the Obama administration’s proposed budget 414-to-0; it failed to get a single Democratic vote. As Ed Morrissey noted, “the President wants to keep proposing massive deficits, increased spending, and higher taxes . . . This is the second year in a row that Obama’s budget couldn’t win a single Democratic vote in Congress. In parliamentary systems, that would be a vote of no confidence and the party would be looking for new leadership.”
The president's leadership on the debt and jobs gets a big

Interesting... what is the DNC's reasoning? The budget always seemed like a bit of a useless hackjob to me, but I'm not sure what else I'd expect Obama to do at this point.

House Unanimously Rejects Obama Budget; 414-0 | Red Dog Report
Quote:
The vote came just hours after the White House cast the pending vote as a political “gimmick,” an apparent attempt to downplay what many expected to be an ugly-looking vote for the White House.

White House officials said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), the sponsor of the alternative, was using Obama’s top-line spending and revenue numbers as a budget proposal, without any specifics. On the House floor, Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) agreed that Mulvaney’s amendment was not, in fact, Obama’s entire budget proposal.
