DB2: However, government departments are influenced by those at the top and their appointees. I would guess there was a difference, for example, with the way the EPA functioned under Bush versus Obama, how they interpreted laws, what was enforced, etc.

AM: That's interesting.
So far, I haven't seen much difference between Bush and Obama.

Given that presidential appointees often have to be approved by the senate, and the GOP is capable of and inclined to torpedo most of the president's nominations, I don't see the conflict here.
