The lakes are struggling from decades and even centuries of lack of care. Over the past few decades, some great strides have been made in restoring the areas most in danger of falling beyond capability of being restored and preserving the rest. During that time, Bush was the first President, Republican or Democrat, to put a halt to the federal support of these efforts. This isn’t about politics, it’s about Bush as an individual showing a lack of concern for a fading resource that all other recent Presidents, including his father and Reagan, thought was worth funding restoration efforts.
Maybe you missed it but I saw some very strong words from the Sierra Club against MMSD.
And everyone involved was a liberal, right?
And the SBVT lies were recent lies and not from 30 years ago. The press dropped that story as soon as it was shown to be a lie. The CBS story will seemingly never end, though.
If we want to talk about asking for impeachment, let’s talk about the Republicans looking to impeach Clinton for having an affair but no talks at all of impeaching Reagan for breaking U.S. and international laws. By the way, there is more evidence that the Bush camp was involved with SBVT than there is that the Kerry camp was involved with the CBS story.
No question there.
Wisconsin was one of the most heavily taxed states before Doyle took office. Who was in control before Doyle? Oh yeah, for over a decade it was a Republican who happens to be serving in Bush’s Cabinet now. If you want to look for people to fault for Wisconsin’s tax burden, start with none other than Tommy Thompson. While I believe Doyle has more than his share of faults, don’t blame him for Wisconsin’s tax burden when that was established long before he had any control over it.
By the way, have you noticed how the story on Saddam has changed? Back in January, Bush “knew” Saddam had stockpiles of WMDs. Now, we know he didn’t have stockpiles or the ability to make stockpiles. We know he had the intent, though. I wonder how many others have the intent.
