Anyone read about this??? "Bush’s last rule-making hurrah..."

And can someone explained to me more about it? Is he trying to pass a law to drill into our national parks and more pollution to happen or am I misreading it?

  • The best we can hope for is that he will slink quietly out of the White House never to be seen or heard from again. Of course THAT won't happen, he'll keep trying to meddle as much as he can. We can always hope President Obama marks him down as persona non grata anywhere near Wash D.C.

  • It's worthy to note that the article points out that this is a common practice by presidents leaving office...

    And that two Democrats are guilty of pulling the most crap (Clinton and Carter.) Before the bash-fest on President Bush continues, perhaps you should read up on some of the things these two gentlemen did that greatly affected the next Administration that took office after them, and our world.

    The article also states that ProPublica has a website on which you can find information about each of his "midnight regulations":

    I read this earlier today and saw how Clinton holds the record for this midnight regulation stuff. The first thing I thought was, "yea and we're still paying for it now".

  • Just take a look at how Clinton left us with a poorly armed military, no intelligence to help keep us safe and prepared, and leaving us wide open to be attacked by terrorists. Do you know that the 9/11 terrorists moved here while Clinton was in office? Bush had some crappy shoes to fill, didn't always make the best decision, along with plenty of others who actually made those decisions happen, but we learn by mistakes much better than we learn from knowing it all. I am not thrilled with the new president, but will be praying that he makes the best choices for this country and not for his own ridiculous idealism.

    Why yes, I did. Do you know that the terrorists attacked our country while President Bush was in office. Just thought you'd like to know.

  • found this interesting. wnated to share............
    The Bush administration is pushing a last-minute proposal to “grant sweeping new protections to health care providers who oppose abortion and other procedures on religious or moral grounds.” Three officials from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission “said the proposal would overturn 40 years of civil rights law prohibiting job discrimination based on religion.”

    “Just weeks before leaving office, the Interior Department’s top lawyer has shifted half a dozen key deputies — including two former political appointees who have been involved in controversial environmental decisions — into senior civil service posts.” The move will “deprive the incoming Obama administration of the chance to install its preferred appointees in some key jobs.”

  • continues
    Despite formal dissents from half of the agency’s 10 regional administrators, the Environmental Protection Agency “is finalizing new air-quality rules that would make it easier to build coal-fired power plants, oil refineries and other major polluters near national parks and wilderness areas.” The proposal would make it so spikes in pollution during periods of peak energy demand would no longer violate the law.
