Hmmmm! Shouldn't come as a surprise. http://www.waronscience.com/home.php Mooney asserts that Bush is "in a bubble walled off from reality; that he takes matters on faith; that he allows ideology to trample expert opinion; that he staffs the government with cronies who run it incompetently." Reasonably accurate assessment into the worst president in US history. Bush even claimed that no-one had forseen the failure of the levees - despite years of reports that it was very likely. I still have to verify the assertion that Bush has increased the number of political appointees well above the number in the Clinton administration, by something on the order of 350, according to Mooney. Dishonest George will be known for his anti-intellectualism, his administration's racketeering and corruption, and the brutality in Iraq. :yuck: :grumpy: Certainly the damage to the US by the Bush Effect will linger for decades. In all fairness, I know many Republicans and Conservatives who faithfully adhere to honesty and fairness in the scientific and political process.
