Bush: More deregulation

Lame Duck Bush, in his final days, is pushing for even more deregulation of industries that cause pollution.  Even as the GOP ship sinks, he continues to drill holes in the hull.

According to government watchdog group OMB Watch, the Bush administration is currently working on dozens of regulations that would loosen rules on emissions of pollutants, mining exploration and commercial fishing, and could have a lasting impact for years to come.

“It is impressive in how many different issues this sort of campaign covers,” OMB Watch’s Matthew Madia told reporters.

“It’s environmental regulations, it’s workers’ safety, it’s reproductive health, it’s traffic safety, but the common theme is in a lot a cases the Bush administration is trying to remove restrictions on business and allow them to operate without any kind of government oversight,” said Madia, a regulatory expert.

On this evening’s news, Katie Couric called the GOP “toxic”, and it is
stories like the above that have caused voters to turn against the
Republicans.

One has to wonder if Bush is not just incompetent, but is
actively contemptuous of his own citizens
